Best Star Wars Music Scores

nelsonerica
Star Wars is our greatest movie franchise, and it has the best scores of any movie, and it's all thanks to John Williams, the man of modern music.

Here's a list of the best Star Wars music scores

The Top TenXW

1Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith

This movie had the most powerful, deep and even most emotional score of not just Star Wars movies, but of ALL movies, it was so powerful and detailed, no other movie score in the world has the depth this score had, it will affect your mind and emotions with the Force, and make you think about the movie and some parts are even super emotional, you think of when a loved one goes through trouble in life and loses control and hurts the others, which just puts grief in your heart, and when you think about someone changing from a wonderful good life into a person who's live is horrible and tragic, you'll just cry like a baby and want to kill yourself, this shows us that Star Wars is not just spaceship battles or light saber fights, it's about life and emotions fused together, and when there's a conflict about people's lives and emotions, you'll go out of control because this had everything a movie could ask you for, and while it was a prequel, it was a great one, and it saved the prequels ...more - nelsonerica

Without this soundtrack, this movie would've been just as bad as the other prequels. Don't get me wrong it would still be the best of the prequels, but if the soundtrack wasn't nearly as epic this movie would have been just as laughable as the other ones. Amazing use of epic choirs. It's almost on the level of something like Lord of the Rings. This definitely proves John Williams can make some incredibly dark music.

This is honestly one of the best Star Wars movies, as well. - junior1337

2Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

What makes this movie the best one ever was the storytelling and characters, which is what Star Wars is all about, it works better than the storytelling on many soap operas, telenovelas or pretty much any drama show or movie series in general, there was real drama in this movie and the part where Darth Vader revealed his fathership to Luke Skywalker was the biggest twist in all movies, but this place is about movie scores, and can say this movie had an excellent music score, the music was very touching, besides the typical spaceship battles which we usually have, there were even some good dramatic themes, especially with Han Solo (1977-2015) and Leia, their love theme was especially the best in this movie and one of the best in the saga and franchise. - nelsonerica

3Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace

Duel of The Fates is, in my opinion, the greatest orchestral song of all time. - junior1337

Sure the movie was one of the weakest but you can't deny Duel of the fates. - htoutlaws2012

Everyone says this is one of the worst Star Wars movies, but that doesn't mean the music score's bad, it had a good score, and some of it was even magical like a dream, some of the best scores in this were Jar Jar's trip to Otoh Gunga and Duel of the Fates (with Darth Maul), everyone loved those tracks, they were better than the movie itself. - nelsonerica

4Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope

The first and original Star Wars ever, and while not the best, it was the first time we ever saw Star Wars anywhere, and there were good soundtracks, such as the Death Star battle and of course, the Binary Sunset/Force theme, which lives with us forever. - nelsonerica

While it doesn't have allot of them but the one that it does have is for me the greatest 30 sec video of my life and that is the binary sunset scene the only scene in my life where I actually felt I was in that world the music gives me goosebumps every single time - DonCorleone

5Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

This was a good score, it was pretty deep and it was best heard when the Emperor, Palpatine/Sidious showed up, and it was really powerful when he tried to kill Luke, but was defeated by Darth Vader with a sacrifice, and during Vader/Anakin's last moments before his death, the music was very touching, and showed us that he saved all and brought balance back to the Force, yet we saw him turning back into Anakin and away from the Dark Side before his death, it was a big moment. - nelsonerica

I get a lot of nostalgia from the song that plays during the ewok celebration in the special edition. - Brobusky

6Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Actually it has the second lamest score yet, it's just a little better than the Holiday Special, but it's still below average and isn't worth getting into. - nelsonerica

How is this score great, it's the most boring score besides that of the Holiday Special, and I don't want to listen to it or watch the movie again.

7Star Wars Episode II - Attack of the Clones

While this wasn't a very good Star Wars movie, the music score was very good, some of it was even magical, there was true music and nothing got us bored with it, the storytelling wasn't good, but the music score was, it was one of the best parts of the movie - nelsonerica

8Star Wars Battlefront (2015)

Even video games have good scores and this one was one of them, yet it was Star Wars, so it was good. - nelsonerica

9Star Wars: Battlefront II
10Star Wars: Battlefront (2004)

The Contenders

11Star Wars Rebels
12Star Wars: The Clone Wars

The Clone Wars was the best Star Wars T.V. show of all time, and it had a good music score for a T.V. show, and it was full of plot and detail, and there was a story line and we got to see Anakin's vision of him turning into Darth Vader, and we knew Ashoka Tano, and explored many planets and saw their different details and lifeforms and structures, it was a good T.V. show, it sucked to have it cancelled for being too violent to put on Disney Channel, so they cancelled it and replaced it was a more boring show called Star Wars Rebels, which has a less good music score.

13Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron
14Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron
15Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

Not only the best SW game, it also had a score that matched the movies.
