Favorites from the Star Wars Soundtracks

What are your favorite tracks/themes/suites/etc. from the Star Wars soundtracks?

"Panaka and the Queen's Protectors" from the Phantom Menace Soundtrack is forever emblazoned into my heart, as my earlier experiences with Star Wars involved LEGO Star Wars: The Videogame and the sequel on the PS2. The main bit of this wonderful track played after each level, while your score, minikits and other unlocks were tallied up.

The "Guardians of the Whills Suite" and "Imperial Suite" from Giacchino's Rogue One soundtrack are also fairly special to me. The latter is something else, an incredibly imposing theme that suits Krennic and his Death Troopers remarkably well, and I never noticed how beautiful the Guardians of the Whills theme was until I heard it live in concert.

Duel of the Fates, the Imperial March, The Throne Room, (and Jabba's Baroque Recital, for kicks) almost go without saying. But what are some of your favorites or stand-outs?

  • Very short, but one of my favorites. Played when Grievous first appeared in RotS, really captures the character well.

  • Wonderful picks, all around. And yes, the video games have some stand out tracks as well (thanks for the reminder @Empire_TW)!

    I think that the Battlefront 2 soundtrack is pretty wonderful overall, as well. The original score, as mentioned by a few YouTube comments, has a distinct John Williamsy flavor which is pretty awesome! Captures the essence of his work fairly well.

    Love all that have been mentioned so far.

    A personal favourite of mine is 'March on the Jedi Temple' (if it is called that), when Anakin/Vader marches into the temple with the 501st. Just an epic piece, love how its in the game too. Makes me feel epic when that comes on.

    I’m a big fan of the Kylo Ren theme. I’ve kinda adapted it as my own person victory tune when appropriate lol

    Rey’s Theme is absolutely fantastic imo. Very beautiful. One of my favourites and a John Williams gem. Good pick.

    Yoda’s theme would be my number one however. I could live the rest of my life to that soundtrack.

    Rey's theme is a great one—undoubtedly my most played track from The Force Awakens score! (Hats off to @LaurenXIV for mentioning it!)

    I should add that I particularly enjoy "The Scavenger" from the same score as well, for it acts as a bit of a prelude to the dedicated theme by bringing in the main melody into a very rich composition.

  • March on the jedi temple is really underrated and overlooked.
