Jefferson Starship performed the song "Light the Sky on Fire" for a musical sequence in The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Star...
The origins of Jefferson Starship lie with an earlier band, Jefferson Airplane, one of the most influential groups in the psychedelic rock movement of the 1960s and 1970s. In 1969, they played at the Woodstock Music and Art Festival. Later that year, they were also one of the bands performing at the infamous Altamont Free Concert. The Altamont concert was the subject of the documentary Gimme Shelter, for which George Lucas was a camera operator.
The Star Wars Holiday Special has never been re-telecast or officially released on home video & also
this version of the song has never been released anywhere.

Lyrics:
God, all dignified,if you want to.
What I would really like to know.
Will you light the sky on fire?
Will you light tonight like
you did the night before?
Hey! You could take me higher
than the diamonds in the sky.
Take me, light in the sky and we'll
vanish without a traceand we'll see God then.
Temples and mirrors interest me.
Though all there really is to know.
Will you light the sky on fire?
Will you light the sky on fire again tonight?
You can take me higher than the diamonds in the sky.
Take me, we'll vanish without a trace
and then we'll all see God then.
On the pyramids of the legend.
The great god Kopa Khan came
from the stars and vanished.
And the legends say he will come
back again someday.
Someday...
Will you light the sky on fire?
Will you light tonight like
you did the night before.
You can take me higher
than the diamonds in the sky.
Take me, light in the sky and
we'll vanish without a trace.
And then we'll see god then.
Yes, I would really like to know.
What I've been watching this for.
Yes, I would really like to know.
Will you light the sky on fire?
Will you light the sky like
you did the night before?
You could take me higher than
the diamonds in the sky.
Take me, we'llvanish without a trace.
And we'll all see God then.
Vanish without a trace.
Vanish without a trace.
Come on, come on,
come on, come on, come on,
let's vanish without a trace.
Come on, come on, come on,
come on, come on,
we'll vanish without a trace.
