Battle of the Heroes and then Padme's Ruminitions (sp?)
My favorite is "Anakin's Dark Deeds". It has such a scary, yet deep tune to it!
1) Battle of the Heroes
2) Anakin vs. Obi-wan
3) Anakin's Betrayal
A New Hope/End credits followed by Anakin's Betrayal, the latter being, in my opinion, one of the the most touching tracks in the saga. Also, its worth buying the OST just to listen to the first minute of A New Hope/End credits
I honestly thought they would bring back Duel of the Fates for Ani/Obi but instead JW comes out with a track that is just as well IMO.
Battle of the Heroes, obviously. With Anakin's Dark Deeds coming in at a very, VERY close second. It's so frighteningly dramatic. Both of them are, actually.
The qui gon funeral music played again and the alternate version where Vader walks the star destroyer bridge. Great stuff.
Taking a guess, its gotta be: The Birth Of The Twins And Padme's Destiny.
Does anybody know where to get this "alternate version"? I was really disappointed when the version on the CD didn't have the Imperial March running underneath it as Vader stands on the bridge with Palpy.
ROTS is a fantastic soundtrack.
Well you can combine a rip of the rear channels on the DVD with about ten seconds from The Force Unleashed. That's the best you'll get for "Padme's Funeral."
Battle of the Heros no question.
Padme's funeral leading up to Vader and Palpatine overlooking the construction of the Death Star. That sequence was incredible.
Also, on the ROTS soundrack, the end credits is my favorite track.
Anakin vs. Obi-Wan is the best "exciting" track, but my favorites are Anakin's Betrayal and the Immolation Scene. I really wish the music from the film's opening battle was on the soundtrack. I was really disappointed that the soundtrack version of "The Birth of the Twins and Padme's Destiny" was such a short track and doesn't include the section with the Imperial March underneath it that is heard in the film when Vader and Palps are on the bridge of their command ship looking out on the Death Star. That part would be among my favorites had it been included.
my favs in all sw are in this order
1.Battle of the heroes
2. duel of the fates
3. Across the Stars
4. Battle over coruscant
5. the cantina song
and thats it
So it begins.
Battle of the Heroes is my favorite.
The whole sound track I believe to be brilliantly composed but if I ahd to narrow it down I would have to choose Anakin's betrayal.
I chose other, I think they were all great, but the Padme Rumination music was the best in the whole movie, and it was in my favorite star wars scene. Plus I love how you can hear across the stars in the background if you listen closely, listen around 1:16, and you will hear it.
A close second is battle of the heroes.
1) Battle of the Heroes
2) Star Wars and Revenge of the Sith
3) A New Hope and End Credits
Anakin's Betrayal is my favorite music piece from this soundtrack. I also greatly enjoyed Palpatine's Teachings and PadmÃ©'s Ruminations.
Anakin Vs Obiwan [ I Wish all the score was on the OST]
Lament [Anakin's Betrayal]
Padme's Destiny [Film Version W/Vader On Deck & Vader Receiving The Suit]
Star Wars AND Revenge Of The Sith [Film Version, But i do enjoy the album edit]
Padme`s Ruminations [Along With Order 66 Score]
Battle Of The Heroes
He's Still Alive...
Padme's Ruminitions is my favourite track, it's a very dark, poignant piece of music. Also the style of the track was completely new to Star Wars but was so brilliant that it just fit like a glove. And of course I love the completely underrated Battle of the Heroes. It has been under Duel of the Fates' shadow for far too long when it's a much superior piece, if not the best piece in the whole saga!
As for unreleased cues, the lone drum beat that opens the film was a bold stroke of genius and the war-like version of the force theme that cuts in had me crying tears of pure joy. I also love the scene where Darth Vader looks out upon the Death Star and the soundtrack turns from Birth and Rebirth into the Imperial March, it just sends chills up my spine. It's haunting and absolutely fantastic!
It was a toss up between Battle of the Heroes and A New Hope. I ultimately chose Battle of the Heroes.
I chose "Anakin vs Obi-Wan" because I love the intensity of the music and the chorus. It also ties the duel so neatly to ESB with its reference to "Clash of the Lightsabers".
But I was inclined to pick "Anakin's betrayal". That track simply moves me to tears every time I watch episode III. It brings out the complete tragedy of the destruction of the Jedi Order.
Battle Of The Heroes, closely followed by Anakin's Betrayal if I could vote twice.
Battle of the Heroes. It is an excellent follow-up to Duel of the Fates.
