Best Music/Best Song or Theme

Author
Time
Just to start a post that doesn't involve people complaining about dvds or prequels...

Which movie had the best music?

Which song/theme is your favorite?

Personally, I'm torn between ROTJ and AOTC for best music/soundtrack...and as for best song, it easily goes
1- Imperial March
2- Anakin and Padme love them
3- Duel of the Fates

and kudoes to the touching music from when Luke burned Vader's body...
Which is the more foolish, the fool (the OT) or the fool who follows (the PT)?

"Stay back, or Mr...Fett gets it!"

I have always preferred (from each movie)

1. Binary Sunset theme
2. Imperial March
3. Funeral Pyre for a jedi

number 3 most of all though!!

I like the 2 Cantina Band Tunes, Binary Sunset is Neat.

also Jabba's Baroque Recital. (Flute Song).

1- Phantom Menace's Anakin theme (the only good thing about that movie)
2- Imperial March
3- Yoda's Theme
4- Star Wars main theme
5- Duel of the Fates
6- Any other incidental music, it's all great...
“Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” — Nazi Reich Marshal Hermann Goering

Thanks for starting a nice discussion thread, Dushku.

I don't know what my absolute favorites are, but I do know my favorite album is ROTJ...two and a half hours of music from the film where the battle between good and evil came to a head. I vastly enjoy the thirty second piece from ROTJ called (I think) 'The Dark Side Beckons,' where Luke fights Vader and takes off his hand. Of course, the funeral pyre cue is amazing, and Binary Sunset is classic and should be a theme for all restless Midwestern youths. I won't let nostalgia get in the way and say that Across the Stars was the best of the saga's love themes (far more fleshed out, quite honestly, the Han/Leia theme was great but more subdued). Duel of the Fates was spectacular also, and I feel The Battle of Yavin is the best battle cue that John Williams composed for the saga (though The Arena from ATOC isn't too far from it). I can't pick an all-time favorite...I have to assign favorites by type.

Great to hear from another person from the Mid-West (I lived 8 years in Green Bay before moving a few years ago to Minneapolis)!

Does anyone know if (present or future) they are going to be releasing a 2-cd set of music for AOTC? I know they did for TPM (i haven't gotten it yet, and i'm still missing the SE Empire set), I was just curious if one was going to come for AOTC.

Perhaps we should also discuss best non-Williams Star Wars song we like. Examples being any of Weird Al's work, or Meco, etc...

I'd have to say Metallica's Imperial March. Meco's (?) Duel of the Fates close second...
