The dark side beckons/The Emperor's death
Let me see now...
All of the Dual of the Fates tracks
Trade Federation march
Arrival at Coruscant
Across the Stars
Anakin & Padme
Return to Tatooine (Duel of the Fates reprise)
Battle of Yavin
TIE Fighter Attack
Throne Room/End Titles
Escape from the Death Star
Imperial March (esp Imperial Fleet Arrives at Hoth)
Battle of Hoth
Escape from Cloud City/Hyperspace
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.
...any rendition of the Force theme (esp if performed by french horns)...
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
and the preceding music when Luke is hanging on the weathervane
Rescue From Cloud City/Hyperspace
Also on the SE soundtrack, it's The Clash Of Lightsabers
<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.
OK, that's better.
1 - The Dark Side Beckons
2 - Duel of the Fates
3 - The Imperial March
4 - Binary Sunset
5 - Star Wars Theme
BTW does anyone know where i can get a decent download of The Dark Side Beckons?
yeah, on the RotJ SE soundtrack
Other than that [eyes_roll]

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
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 Cantina Band Song. Its a nice swinging song.
first star wars movie that i saw was the phantom menace so i loved duel of the fates
and the droid invasion the first music that you hear in tpm game i also fall in love with a noble piece of the tpm and it was
when queen amidala talks with boss nass
in tpm game its named gardens of theed
also shmi skywalker theme is very good
when i saw the classic trilogy movies
i fall in love with yoda's theme
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...
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
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
Cantina Band 1&2,
TIE Fighter Attack
Battle of Yavin,
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.
The High Council Meeting and Qui-Gon's Funeral
Confrontation with Count Dooku
The Battle of Yavin
The Imperial Probot/Aboard the Executor
The Clash of Lightsabers
The Rebel Fleet
Pit of Carkoon/Sail Barga Assault
The Battle of Endor III
Leia's News/Light of the Force
