    Same as the last thread. Duel of the Fates. The choir that is in this peace really makes it something special. It is also used so well throughout the trilogy. I hope it pops up again in episode 9.

    I actually think DOTF was squandered. When George told John "you've scored the final duel in Ep 3" with DOTF, I thought he meant the theme was perfect and he would have John weave it into a new composition. Instead we got a copy/paste of the TPM recording into the middle of the Obi-Wan vs. Anakin sequence. I was very disappointed, especially after how well the new use of DOTF worked in AOTC.

    Also, in my opinion, DOTF only fits the prequel trilogy. I don't think it has any place in Ep 9.

    As I understand, while the orchestra itself was copy-pasted, the choir was rerecorded for ROTS

    Why rerecord it?

    Main Title. Every time I think of Star Wars, that is what comes to mind musically.

    Leia's theme hits me right in the gut whenever it starts now - especially now that our beloved Princess, Carrie Fisher, is no longer with us.

    The piano rendition in the TLJ credits is a gut punch every time I see the film.

    Rey's Theme: I love the melody and supporting motifs, the multiple 'endings', and the way it meshes with the Force theme.

    The Force theme closely followed by Leia's and then Duel of the Fates.

    Across The Stars for me. Just something so grand yet melancholy at the same time. Perfectly represents the tragic love of the PT.

    Battle of the Heroes also holds a special place too. I remember watching the "A Hero Falls" Music Video on the ROTS DVD all the time growing up.
