    Let me see now...

    TPM:
    All of the Dual of the Fates tracks
    Flag Parade
    Trade Federation march
    Arrival at Coruscant

    AotC:
    Coruscant Chase
    Arena Battle
    Across the Stars
    Anakin & Padme
    Return to Tatooine (Duel of the Fates reprise)

    ANH:
    Battle of Yavin
    TIE Fighter Attack
    Throne Room/End Titles
    Escape from the Death Star
    Mos Eisley

    ESB:
    Imperial March (esp Imperial Fleet Arrives at Hoth)
    Asteroid Chase
    Battle of Hoth
    Escape from Cloud City/Hyperspace
    End Titles

    RotJ:
    The Dark Side Beckons/Emperor's Death
    The Battle of Endor I-III
    Into the Superstructure
    Sail Barge Assault
    Battle with the Rancor

    That's just what's coming to me off the top of my head. In general, any rendition of the Force theme (esp if performed by french horns) and the Imperial March are my favorites. I love all of the SW scores, and John Williams is my favorite composer. It's hard to pick favorites.

    I am shocked, then, that you don't have Binary Sunset on your list!

    1) Binary Sunset
    2) Clashing Lightsabers
    3) Hyperspace (and the preceding music when Luke is hanging on the weathervane)
    4) Duel of the Fates (this would rank higher if it didn't have the choir)
    5) Princess Leia's Theme

    Rescue From Cloud City/Hyperspace :)

    Also on the SE soundtrack, it's The Clash Of Lightsabers

    From GeneralKenobi:

    <I am shocked, then, that you don't have Binary Sunset on your list! >

    Well, the list was off the top of my head, so it's a small oops on my part. Binary Sunset is one of the best Force themes, along with the variation in AotC right before the Duel of the Fates reprise.

    Requesting/offering illegal file swapping of copyrighted material is not permitted on these boards.

    So go buy the ROTJ:SE cd. You'll be happy you did. :)

    (Even if the audio quality of the ANH & ESB cds are better.)

    OMG Sorry! I didn't mean a download in that way and i apologise. :)

    I have friends who have told me about sites where you can give your credit card number and buy a single track.

    Unless they were making it up... which isn't unheard of.

    Man i'm busted. Sorry guys :( [face_plain]

    I would say my favorite tracks in each movie are:

    TPM - The track that starts out when Darth Maul kills Qui-Gon - the horns sound amazing and I can hear Obi-Wan yell each time.

    AOTC - Duel with Count Dooku/Finale - Hearing the pseudo-Imperial March, Love Theme, and the ending theme all in one track is cool (although I like the one w/the Duel of the Fates and Binary Sunset too)

    EPIII - I know it's going to be the battle b/w Obi-Wan and Anakin - it should have Duel of the Fates, Across the Stars AND Imperial March in it. Goose bumps just thinking about it.

    SW - Binary Sunset - Very cool, starts out soft and small and builds to a great flourish

    ESB - The Rebel Fleet/End Title - This has to include the 15+ second part from Luke & The Force track, I like how you can hear the dialogue in your head with it. Plus, it has the Imperial March in it.

    ROTJ - Funeral Pyre - It has both versions - film and symphonic - and it reminds me of that cool scene that Luke is silhouetted by Vader's funeral pyre in ROTJ.

    I would say: Imperial March theme, Duel of The Fates, Obi Wan vs. Jango, and the Hoth attack.

    The two ultimate SW tracks are the Imperial March and Duel of the Fates.

    Final Duel from Return of the Jedi, right before Luke chops off Vader's hand.

    Duel of the Fates and Across the Stars.

    Am I insane? I say this cause I like these new themes MORE than the Classic Trilogy ones, and the Main Theme is my least favorite theme of Star Wars.

    edit: And the Imperial March. A brilliant tongue-in-cheek dark theme.

    Did I say "The Battle of Yavin" before?

    Without looking, I probably said "The Emperor Arrives/The Death Of Yoda/Obi Wan's Revelation".

    Gosh, it's so hard to decide...

    :p

    For me, I really like the Return of the Jedi Soundtracks, and especially these tracks:

    Battle of Endor II and III,
    Sail Barge Assault,
    also known as the Pit of Carkoon
    Victory Celebration,
    Ewok Celebration
    from the original 1983 Release.

    If you notice, in Battle of Endor III at the 51 second mark, the trumpets miss a note.

    I know these things, I'm a brass player.

    Some other favorites of mine are

    Imperial Attack
    Binary Sunset,
    Cantina Band 1&2,
    TIE Fighter Attack
    Battle of Yavin,
    Imperial March
    (DUH)
    Betrayl at Bespin,
    The Rebel Fleet,
    and of course:

    Opening Title and the End Credits.

    I know we're only supposed to pick one, but I have a few from each film. It's too hard to pick just one above the rest.

    TPM: "Anakin's Theme" and "The Tide Turns/The Death of Darth Maul"

    AOTC: "Jango's Escape" and "Love Pledge and the Arena"

    ANH: "Ben Kenobi's Death/TIE Fighter Attack" and "The Battle of Yavin"

    TESB: "The Asteroid Field" and "The Clash of Lightsabers"

    ROTJ: "The Emperor Arrives/The Death of Yoda/Obi-Wan's Revelation" and "Leia's News/Light of the Force"

    TPM: The Flag Parade, Duel of the Fates

    AOTC: Zam the Assassin and The Chase Through Coruscant, Love Pledge and The Arena

    ANH: Binary Sunset, Burning Homestead, The Battle of Yavin

    ESB: Imperial Walkers, The Asteroid Field, Yoda and the Force, The Clash of Lightsabers, Rescue From Cloud City and Hyperspace, The Rebel Fleet and End Title... Actually, when it comes to this score it would probably quicker just to list the tracks that aren't my favourites. ;)

    ROTJ: Sail Barge Assault, The Battle of Endor Part 1

    It's a tie between Yoda's Theme and Across the Stars.
