    If they can get John Lennon to join the other three Beatles in Episode II then it's ok with me. If not then forget it... it's not the Beatles.

    Mar17... Why does it have to be MORE romantic? Geez what IS the obssession with having A/P be better than H/L ? Can't BOTH pieces of music be EQUALLY as beautiful.

    Sorry don't mean to single you out but I have had it up to hear with the "Couples contest" througout Star wars.

    To adress the original NO. Not in Star wars.

    Jewlmc :

    The Anakin/Padmé love theme HAS to be more romantic. As much as it can, to emphasize then their...what could we say here ? "Divorce" ?
    To get the audience to really FEEL something, it needs to be the most romantic couple ever. Han and Leia are very cool, but hey ! what happens then ? Wedding, children ? No conflict ? BORING !

    NO pop songs by ANY singer. That would just be WRONG. I think any love song for EP II should be strictly instrumental. I imagine there WILL be a love theme for Episode II, and I can see John Williams and his orchestra doing some really extra- beautiful, spine-tingling, violin-melting, kissy-face version of "Anakin's Theme" from EP II.

    The love theme will probably follow a Princess Leia-style. Probably comprise of stringed instruments. As in the trailer (Forbidden Love), Leia's theme makes it sound very beautiful.

    They should have "Ding-Dong the Witch is dead" for the love song, a la Naked Gun 2.5.

    Well aotc would be the most likely of all the star wars films to have a song, because of it's strong love theme. however, it probably would not fit. background vocals to a love theme like dotf would work, but i don't think an artist would work unless it was really well planned out, i could *possibly* see enya doing a song. the only cool thing about having a song in a star wars movie is you'd finally have a music video for a star wars movie, and it would help boost the sales of the soundtrack (dotf wasn't really a music video in my opinion)

    I am sorry, I guess Pop songs are obviously bad idea.

    I just had an idea, if Natalie & Hayden are choir-talented, they could sing a love song themselves... NO POP Style, JOHN William Style ... NO Bass, electronic manipulation.... JUST Choir!!!

    How is that idea???

    You're full of ideas aren't you? That's okay, you just got me thinking about how it would sound.

    I wouldn't have a problem with that. Margot Kidder sounded okay doing the "Can You Read My Mind" thing.

    Natalie singing a choir type musical piece to the love theme?... [face_love]

    :p hehe

    I agree with the no pop vocal singer idea. Mariah, Celine, and Whitney are just no-nos for Star Wars. But the mentioning of the Beatles brought to mind something. Have any of you heard "Love Duet" from Paul McCartney's classical CD Standing Stone? I think its a beautiful piece and it has a chorus. It's not perfect on the CD, but I think that's because Paul doesn't know how to work melodies into a perfectly classical sounding format. But if John Williams and Paul McCartney reworked it, I think it would be an extraordinarily beautiful romantic theme for Episode 2.

    Yeah, we REALLY need some pop stars in Star Wars....

    Faith Hill in Jedi Robes singing " Ooh I love the way you mind trick me " or

    Yoda with Aerosmith singing " I don't wanna sith a thing "


    ummm. no.

    Pop music.....noooooooo!!!!! Keep it out of my Star Wars movies. But while were on the subject of external musicians, heck they mind as well add a Slayer song if they change their mind and decide to let Anakin hack away at the Sandpeople. :)

    I think I agree pretty much with the one before me...

    It's feels kinda odd to bring in pop-hits into SW.

    I don't mind the idea of a Love Song in Episode 2. As long as Celine Dion doesn't sing it. Her vocals aren't to bad, but there way to extream for a SW movie. It would like having the song as an Opera piece.

    I say, cellor or oboe or violin solo with string obbligati. 'Forsaken Magdalena' by Hugo Wolf is haunting for desperate love. A soprano voice...
