Are you ready for lose your damn mind??? So Hawkeye is full of Christmas music, but there is a track in Episode 4 that is so incredibly deep that I am absolutely amazed they used it. When Kate is with the LARPers, a song plays that hardly anyone will be familiar with. The song?
“Bells, Bells, Bells” performed by Anthony Daniels as C-3PO since 1980 Star Wars holiday album Christmas in the stars. Yes, that is something that exists and … is … loco. Take “Bells, Bells, Bells” for example. It’s a song that begins with C-3PO saying, “I can’t believe the question. It’s like, ‘What is indigestion?’ Not that bells and indigestion are the same. “
The whole album is a gem, a completely ridiculous Christmas artifact that’s just as absurd as the infamous 1979 Star Wars Holiday Special, except that Christmas in the Stars has considerably less Wookiee grunting. However, it has the song “What can you get a Wookiee for Christmas (when he already has a comb)?”
And then there’s my personal favorite, the catchy almost antagonistic “R2-D2 We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” Fun fact: the lead vocal for this one is sung by a young Jon Bon Jovi, who worked as a janitor at the recording studio. This is true.
Anyway, the album is amazing and the inclusion of this song in Hawkeye It better mean that high-quality versions of these recordings are on the way.
