    The Trade Federation March has always seemed more haunting and atmospherical compared to the Imperial March's brashness. While I loved the use of the Imperial March in AOTC, the Trade Federation March is one I always find a bit more interesting. Probably because it has more to it than just one theme over and over...

    Trade Federation is good, but it holds no candle to the Imperial March....

    I'm with crack, Imperial March is just too good. The way JW uses it in ESB & ROTJ is great! Especially when Anakin dies.

    The only reason 'Trade Federation' doesn't sound like the same theme over and over is because it's never developed. It isn't a fully developed theme like Imperial March is. We barely get to hear that Trade Federation motif at all.

    I guess the question of whether or not John Williams EVER really develops his themes is reserved for another thread ;-).

    They're different. If the Trade Federation march had been used more and in better places like the Imperial March had been, people would like it more.

    As straight themes of music, I like the Trade Federation march better simply because it's more interesting, and I've gotten a little tired of the Imp March.

    hahaha Just because the poll says so doesn't make it true. It is, after all, only public opinion. And when was public opinion ever right about anything?

    I've always liked Imperial March. I especially like its cues in AOTC.

    the Imperial March is awesome. it was great to hear in AOTC, a preview of the turmoil to come. i also have another version of it, and a metallica one as well. it was in my head after seeing the movie, and it will always be great

    THAT'S IT! I demand this thread be closed! It has improper labeling of The Happy Senator's Theme.


    I expect a prompt response from the my mod police force.
