Those Pesky Soundtracks

The mention of that now-infamous track on TPM's soundtrack in the "Qui-Gon's Death" thread got me curious; What other track titles ridiculously gave away key plot points? So I pulled out my soundtracks and compiled this list:

TPM
DISC 1
13. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan Rescue the Queen
33. Anakin Defeats Sebulba
34. Hail to the Winner, Anakin Skywalker
DISC 2
27. The Death of Qui-Gon and the Surrender of the Gungans
28. The Tide Turns - The Death of Darth Maul
30. The Funeral of Qui-Gon

AotC
(None yet, but if they ever release an Ultimate Edition Soundtrack I'm sure there'll be plenty.)

ANH
DISC 1
9. Burning Homestead
DISC 2
9. Ben Kenobi's Death / Tie Fighter Attack

ESB
DISC 2
7. Betrayal At Bespin

ROTJ
DISC1
5. Han Solo Returns
8. The Emperor Arrives / The Death Of Yoda / Obi-Wan's Revelation

DISC 2
3. Brother And Sister / Father And SonThe Fleet Enters Hyperspace / Heroic Ewok
7. The Battle Of Endor II (Leia Is Wounded - The Duel Begins / Overtaking The Bunker / The Dark Side Beckons / The Emperor's Death
8. The Battle Of Endor III (Superstructure Chase / Darth Vader's Death / The Main Reactor)

I remember I didn't want to see ANYTHING related to SW before I watched episode 1, so I didn't have any contact with the soundtrack at all. When I saw it on the stores, I'd just turn my head away

The track "Ben Kenobi's death" was NOT titled like that on the original soundtrack release, though...
“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

Yeah, I imagine they've changed a lot of the track titles in subsequent releases, but still, you'd think they'd leave that kind of stuff out.

GL IS SO GUARDED ABOUT THE STORY DURING PRODUCTION, BUT THEN HE RELEASES THE SOUNDTRACKS, BOOKS WHICH ARE THE ULTIMATE SPOILERS, AND OTHER RELATED MERCHANDISE A MONTH OR SO BEFORE THE RELEASE OF THE MOVIE. WHY BE SO GUARDED IF HE'S JUST GOING TO LET IT GET SPOILED BEFORE WE SEE THE MOVIE THROUGH RELEASE OF THE MERCHANDISE ANYWAY ???

Since I missed out on the major spoiler, 'The Emperor's Death' on the ROTJ soundtrack release back in 1983 (wasn't born yet), I'll have to make up for it by buying the soundtrack and reading the track listing before the movie comes out. Seeing the track record on the soundtrack titles, I wouldn't be surprised to see ROTS have a track entitled, 'Mace Windu is Thrown Around by Anakin and Electrocuted by the Emperor.' Either that or 'Padme is Force-Choked.' (not that those are actually going to be in the movie, or at least, not that I know of)

I bet on the Ep III soundtrack, there is a track called "Anakin Turns Into Vader." Man, that would ruin the whole surprise for me.

Yeah, I can see them now:

"The Death of Dooku"
"Mace Windu's Noble End"
"Palpatine Revealed as Sidious!"
"Palpatine Becomes Emperor"
"The Birth of Luke and Leia"
"The Twins Are Seperated"

And the list goes on...
