    In the spirit of [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=6975844&replies=32]Top Ten tracks, post AOTC[/link]...

    Yeah, there's still probably a bit of ROTS influence, but we've had time to digest the new soundtrack.

    1. Throne Room/End Title
    2. The Emperor Arrives/The Death Of Yoda/Obi-Wan's Revelation
    3. The Battle Of Endor II
    4. Duel Of The Fates
    5. The Rebel Fleet/End Title
    6. A New Hope And End Credits (I feel like I'm cheating using this for "Battle Of The Heroes".)
    7. The Battle Of Hoth
    8. Confrontation With Count Dooku And Finale
    9. The Hologram/Binary Sunset
    10. The Battle Of Yavin

    Very close:
    Anakin's Betrayal
    Shuttle Tydirium Approaches Endor
    Yoda And The Force
    Leia's News/Light Of The Force
    Anakin's Dark Deeds
    Anakin Vs. Obi-Wan
    The Immolation Scene

    I know that the longer tracks with multiple cues joined together probably have an advantage here, and there are editing issues. Would it be too difficult to have a "Top Ten Cues" thread (that would avoid counting the end titles and certain edits)?

    Several ROTS tracks almost break into this list, but only Anakin's Dark Deeds makes it. That bumps off one ESB track, and I fudged around with the ranking for Rescue From Cloud City.

    1) The Rebel Fleet/End Title (V)
    2) The Clash of Lightsabers (V)
    3) The Battle of Endor II (VI)
    4) The Battle of Yavin (IV)
    5) Confrontation with Count Dooku and Finale (II)
    6) The Throne Room/End Title (IV)
    7) Anakin's Dark Deeds (III)
    8) The Tide Turns/Death of Darth Maul (I)
    9) Love Pledge and the Arena (II)
    10) Rescue from Cloud City/Hyperspace (V)

    This is a list of tracks, not themes. The Force Theme does not exist as a self-titled track. Tracks like "Throne Room", "Binary Sunset", and "Light Of The Force" use the Force Theme as their main theme.

    I'm not sure. It might just be Binary Sunset. Can you describe what it sounds like?

    It starts really soft and slow. Total time is 3:20

    At about 1:06 it sounds like the song at the very end of ESB, but cut.

    at about 2:12 it does sound like the scene in ANH (binary sunset)

    At 2:30 the music is just like in ROTJ when Luke burns Vader suit on Endor.
