31 day star wars challenge, day 13: in which I have favorite music from the originals …

This set of soundtracks are such a huge part of my life and will continue to be probably until I die. I’m really hoping not to hear anything negative about John Williams – I’m speaking more in terms of like he’s a sexual predator or puppy killer – because if I can’t morally listen to his work on Star Wars, I will be incredibly sad.

1 – “PRINCESS LEIA’S THEME”

Leia’s theme naturally has to be the first track I put on here. Enough said.

2 – “THE BATTLE OF HOTH”

Just listen to this and tell me that you don’t feel the urgency behind the evacuation.

3 – “THE BATTLE OF ENDOR II”

I am pretty sure that I’ve already posted this on one of my “on rotation …” posts, but it really is one of my favorite tracks. That lightsaber duel theme (starting around 4:50-ish) is just *chef’s kiss* and no one can tell me otherwise.

4 – “THE THRONE ROOM/END TITLE”

This is what the parade music from The Phantom Menace wants to be when it grows up.

5 – “THE IMPERIAL PROBE DROID / ABOARD THE EXECUTOR”

I’m not normally a fan of dissonance, but I absolutely love how it’s used on this one.
