Supposedly, this tender love ballad from Luke Sywalker to Leia, is a rejected song from the Empire Strikes Back soundtrack. Sure, it is. And if you believe that, I have some prime real estate on Dagoba to sell you. In any case, authentic or not, the dude managed to nail the early-'80s, cheese-ballad vibe that pervaded that era, and give me a good laugh at the Star Wars jokes and sex euphemisms throughout. This little slice of nerd heaven popped up on Topless Robot a few days ago and I've been watching it at least twice a day since, so I decided the only thing to do was share it with you. Which I have done, after the jump. Enjoy.
