    What music (other than John Williams) do people in the SW universe listen to?

    I think Vader be a Metallica kind of guy

    Han probably goes for a little gangsta rap on the Falcons stereo.

    Yoda - Bit of trance maybe?

    Chewie - big Beatles fan I think maybe?

    Tarkin - Won't admit it, but he loves Kylie and has posters of her in his Death Star quarters


    any thoughts?

    ;) :)

    I see them all to have a preference towards classical music. :p

    Darth Vader:
    He probably likes symphonic metal, like Rhapsody.

    Emperor Palpatine:
    I suppose he likes J.S. Bach's pipe organ works.

    Han:
    Classic rock. He's the rebellious no-nonsense type.

    Lando:
    I'd go with a stereotype. He likes hip-hop.

    Yoda:
    He listens to something spiritual, ambient or ethnic. He's the inspirational kind of guy.

    Tarkin:
    The screams of his tortured captives Rebels are the music he enjoys the most har-har-har (evil laugh)

    Admiral Ozzel:
    He's a fan of Ozzy Osbourne.

    thats the spirit, I did wonder if palps was a Queen fan .... "I want it all"

    seeing Lando in ESB, very tight clothes, I just get this sense of him getting down to some 70's disco!

    I'm not sure any of them would like Queen because in I Want to Ride My Bicycle one of the lyrics is "And I don't like Star Wars".

    Han: Classic Rock. You can just tell. That's what would be pumping through the Flacon's stereos. Nothing else would do.

    Luke: Definately alternative and today's rock.

    Leia: R and B

    Vader: Grunge. Grunge screams of teen angst and Vader definately had teen angst :p

    Palpatine: Gregorian Chants

    Yoda: Yanni

    Tarkin: Mozart. Deginately Mozart. I just don't see him as a Bethoven person.

    Lando: Barry White, Barry Manilow, Tom Jones, Sinatra and of course, the occasional Disco. Lando wa'n't no jive turkey.

    Madine: 60's :p

    Chewie: The Meow Mix commercials.

    Obi-Wan: Big Band/Zoot Suit

    Jabba: Show tunes.

    Good call on Vader and teen angst but really can't see Luke listening to anything alternative or rock like, he is just too clean cut. Having said that, by ROTJ he was taking after his dad and going for the Goth black look, maybe he is a closet Marilyn Manson fan. Imagine the final fight with him and vader on the second death star with "The Beautifull People" playing in the background!

    I think the Star Wars movies would benefit from the Back to the Future soundtrack by Alan Silvestri. At the end of BTTF, Marty McFly is speeding against the clock, literally, to reach the over-hanging wire (BTTF fans will know what I`m on about) - anyway, that piece of music needs to be inserted into A New Hope, just as Luke blows the DStar to pieces. Yes, this idea will be mailed to GL for the Super Hyper Special Editions DVD in 200x.

    Meh, lot's of kids listen to that. It's not 'bad' music :p He looked like an average teen to me and that's what most of them round here listen to :)
    Although immediately after coming home from Clous City he listened to Austin Power's 'Daddy Wasn't There' song :p
    Boba Fett! I forgot about him.
    Definately country to follow with his dad's whole 'simple man' philosophy ;)

    Austin Powers "Daddy Wasn't There"!! LOL!! :) :) :)

    Imagine if EPIII started with a whole musical number at the start, a la Asutin Powers! Anakin leading the dance with a crew of Clone troopers and Jedi dancing behind him through Courosant!!! Obi Wan, Yoda and Mace could have their own solo routines and Palps could do the Sith shuffle in his palace!

    Bedada3 - Boba Fett - The Clash, Sex Pistols good call, Jabba I thought might be more into Barry White though!

    one word: ABBA
    hear it.
    love it. ;)

    Good call about Alan Silvestri Anadin. I doubt GL would ever use anyone but John Williams, but Alan is an amazing composer as well. I love all 3 of his scores for Back to the Future!

    theme songs I would like to hear:

    Darth Vader - Back in Black AC/DC of course

    Luke - Highway to the Danger Zone - Kenny Loggins...lol...well he and Maverick from Top Gun are both great pilots

    Leia - Look's that Kill - Motley Crue (especially in her ROTJ bra ensemble)

    Han - Born to be Wild - steppenwolf

    Chewie - that song that goes "your hair is everywhere" dashboard conf?

    ps. it's almost too easy, but you
    have to
    have Weird Al's "yoda" playing everytime he walks in!

    and I quote:

    I met him on a swamp down in Dagobah
    Where it bubbles all the time like a giant carbonated soda
    S-O-D-A, soda
    I saw the little runt sitting there on a log
    I asked him his name and in a raspy voice, he said, "Yoda"
    Y-O-D-A, Yoda
    Yo yo yo yo Yoda

    Well, I've been around, but I ain't ever seen
    A guy who looks like a muppet but he's wrinkled and green
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo yo yo yo Yoda
    Well, I'm not dumb, but I can't understand
    How he can lift me in the air just by raising his hand
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo yo yo yo Yoda

    Well, I left home just a week before
    And I've never ever been a Jedi before
    But Obi-Wan, he set me straight, of course
    He said, "Go to Yoda and he'll show you the Force!"
    Well, I'm not the kind that would argue with Ben
    So it looks like I'm gonna start all over again with my Yoda
    Yo yo yo yo Yoda
    Yo yo yo yo Yoda
    So I used the Force
    I lifted a box
    I lifted some rocks
    Well, I stood on my head
    But I won't forget what Yoda said

    He said, "Luke, stay away from the darker side
    "And if you start to go astray, let the Force be your giude."
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo yo yo yo Yoda
    "I know Darth Vader's really got you annoyed,
    "But remember, if you kill him then you'll be unemployed."
    Oh, my Yoda
    Yo yo yo yo Yoda

    Well, I heard my friends really got in a mess
    So I'm gonna have to leave Yoda, I guess
    But I know I'll be coming back some day
    I'll be playing this part 'til I'm old and gray
    A lifetime contract I have signed
    And I'll be making these movies until the end of time with my Yoda
    Yo yo yo yo Yoda
    Yo yo yo yo Yoda

    Darth Maul:
    He hates everything on two legs, wears total black and has red corpsepaint on his face.

    He must be into blackmetal (grunge is soft pop compared to it)

    It's great to know we all think Han's a Classic Rock kinda man. ;)

    More

    Owen and Beru: 50's
    Ackbar: Calypso
    Lobot: New Age
    Jar Jar: Raegae (no, no joke intended, I just think he'd dig it the most)
    Padme: Classic Symphony with a hidden stash of Aerosmith.
    Shmi: None in particular, but I think she'd like Kenny Rogers
    Dex: 50's hop
    Qui-Gon: 60's 70's rock
    Dooku: Harsher, brassier ochestra. Think Hall of the Mountain King and. . . crap. Something of the Valkeries I think. . .
    Elan Sleazebaggano: Eminem
    Mace: Soft Jazz

    Sorry for including PT characters, but I ran out of OT ones.

    That's a good one. This lighthearted and happy genre suits with Jar-Jar's character.

    Dooku: Harsher, brassier ochestra. Think Hall of the Mountain King and. . . crap. Something of the Valkeries I think.

    Crap? John Williams' music owes to ''harsh and brassy orchestral works''.

    Padme: Classic Symphony with a hidden stash of Aerosmith.
    What does Classical music have to do with posers/glamsters like Aerosmith? ;) Little girls that like Aerosmith don't like orchestral works, I can tell.

    Well it started with CT characters, but see no reason why not to include PT characters as well.

    Dex and fifties hop - Monday, Tuesday Happy Days, Wednesday, Thursday, Happy Days.... Saturday what a day, rockin all week with you.... Dex's dinner almost looks like Al's!!

    No no no. I wasn't calling the works crap. I was saying crap because I couldn't remember the name of the peice :p The classics are far from crap :)

    What does Classical music have to do with posers/glamsters like Aerosmith? Little girls that like Aerosmith don't like orchestral works, I can tell.

    What those taste illustrate are both her royal stint as queen and senator and all the proper delcacies that go with it, and her hidden sense of adventure ;) The wild girl hidden in her. Girls that like Aerosmith probably don't like the classics, but girls who like the classics may like Aerosmith.
    after all, what good does it do to admire and appreciate past culture if you can't appreciate your own? Not that I'm calling Aerosmith culture per se, but their genre of music is.
    In other words, you can appreciate and like the reniasance all you want, but what good will it do if you can't appreciate an equally important time era: The present?
    Afterall, the present will become the past and the past will be studied and appreciated by those of the future anyway ;)


    EDIT - Well shoot. This thread was supposed to be humorous and instead I inadvertantly turned it into an intelligent study of the characters :p

    The wild girl hidden in her. Girls that like Aerosmith probably don't like the classics, but girls who like the classics may like Aerosmith.

    My ''problem'' isn't with the genre Aerosmith supposedly represent, but the fact that this particular band was mentioned as a representative of this genre ;) Notice that I said ''posers/glamsters'' about Aerosmith, I didn't say anything bad about rock/metal in general.

    after all, what good does it do to admire and appreciate past culture if you can't appreciate your own? Not that I'm calling Aerosmith culture per se, but their genre of music is.

    It's just that if you ask a knowledgable rocker/metalhead about his/her favorite bands, Aerosmith won't be mentioned. That's my issue with Aerosmith.

    In other words, you can appreciate and like the reniasance all you want, but what good will it do if you can't appreciate an equally important time era: The present?

    I appreciate the present and I have over 200 contemporary CDs. It's just that Aerosmith (alongside Bon Jovi and bands by former Guns'n Roses members) are not very good representatives of this genre.

    Afterall, the present will become the past and the past will be studied and appreciated by those of the future anyway.

    Too true. Williams' music will be the classical music of the 22th century. ;)

    Whoops, yeah, we missed the point. This is supposed to be a humor thread.

    I say Boba Fett listens to NIN, due to his industrial look.
