    Looked back through the topic list and didnt see this posted and thought it would be fun. This is something that is brought up quite often on the Ep III board. In no way am I saying the John Williams score should be replaced, his music is as much a part of Star Wars as lightsabers and The Force. But if you could put together the soundtrack for SW, especially Ep.III, what would you include and why? Or to go a little different route, what songs remind you of SW or a SW character.
    I would have to start with Evanescence. Their music is slightly dark without going to far. Even the album name has an Ep. III tone, "Fallen." They could have easily renamed "My Immortal" Padme's Theme. Really listen to the lyrics. Also, when I hear "Sad But True" by Metallica, I think of Palpatine. Again, really listen to the lyrics. Its almost like the evolution of his relationship with Anakin/Vader. Starts off by telling him he is freind while the others betray him. Ends by telling him he is his "hate when he wants love." Sorry this is so long, but I really enjoy this type of discussion. Thoughts anyone?

    Hate replying to my own threads, but here are the lyrics to Sad But True. What do you think?

    Hey
    I'm your life
    I'm the one who takes you there
    Hey
    I'm your life
    I'm the one who cares
    They
    They betray
    I'm your only true friend now
    They
    They'll betray
    I'm forever there

    I'm your dream, make you real
    I'm your eyes when you must steal
    I'm your pain when you can't feel
    Sad but true

    I'm your dream, mind astray
    I'm your eyes while you're away
    I'm your pain while you repay
    You know it's sad but true

    You
    You're my mask
    You're my cover, my shelter
    You
    You're my mask
    You're the one who's blamed
    Do
    Do my work
    Do my dirty work, scapegoat
    Do
    Do my deeds
    For you're the one who's shamed

    I'm your dream, make you real
    I'm your eyes when you must steal
    I'm your pain when you can't feel
    Sad but true

    I'm your dream, mind astray
    I'm your eyes while you're away
    I'm your pain while you repay
    You know it's sad but true

    I'm your dream
    I'm your eyes
    I'm your pain
    You know it's sad but true

    Hate
    I'm your hate
    I'm your hate when you want love
    Pay
    Pay the price
    Pay, for nothing's fair
    Hey
    I'm your life
    I'm the one who took you here
    Hey
    I'm your life
    And I no longer care

    I'm your dream, make you real
    I'm your eyes when you must steal
    I'm your pain when you can't feel
    Sad but true

    I'm your truth, telling lies
    I'm your reasoned alibis
    I'm inside, open your eyes
    I'm you

    Sad but true

    In Jedi, when the mask comes off Vader, "Veteran of the Psychic Wars" by Blue Oyster Cult.

    You see me now a veteran
    Of a thousand psychic wars
    My energy is spent at last
    And my armor is destroyed
    I have used up all my weapons
    And I'm helpless and bereaved
    Wounds are all I'm made of
    Did I hear you say that this is victory

    Riff, the music is groovy (at least for the time)

    and the lyrics fit:

    "Drive!
    Push it to the floor till the engine screams.
    Drive!
    Drivin' like the demon that drives your beat.

    You're on a hard road, nobody cares
    If you hit the breaks.
    You gotta think fast, keep it in gear,
    One slip is all it takes.
    You gotta keep your wheels on the straight and narrow,
    If you wanna survive.

    Drive!
    Push it to the floor till the engine screams.
    Drive!
    Drivin' like the demon that drives the beat.
    Drive!"

    No one else remembers the show or the theme????

    Thats pretty good Joe, though I dont remember the show. Sounds like the name for a wine cooler.

    But I might not have remembered it either, but it's on a CD of TV theme songs I have...
