Top 10 Best Star Wars Songs

These are the top 10 best songs from the 6 film series Star Wars in my opinion too. I hope you like all of these songs! Thanks to John Williams for being a pure genius!

The Top Ten

1 Duel of the Fates

From Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. This theme is greatly appreciated! The music with Darth Maul fighting Qui Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi is fit in so perfectly. I like it good

Such a dramatic piece. It would work well with any fight. I particularly like its use in the duel between Obi Wan and Anakin, followed by Battle of the Heroes.

This and the imperial march are by far the best ones so far.

Love this song when Yoda and Darth Sidious fight

2 The Hologram / Binary Sunset

I love this song! It is so emotional and sad and shows you that there is more to Star Wars than blasters and fighting and war. It reminds us that we all have dreams, and if we believe in them, they will come true.

The scene for this song is probably one of the best scenes of the saga.There is no blasters or fighting it's a real breathtaking moment of Luke looking into the sunset and you can see the ambition that is truly within him. This is truly in amazing song and an amazing scene.

This has got to be the most amazing song in the entire saga. Hearing it makes me believe that anything is possible, and that I can do anything.If you listen to the WHOLE song, (not just the force theme,) you will find that it's calming and quiet. But then the force theme kicks in, and I'm just blown away.

One of my favorite things about Star Wars and my #1 movie theme of all time.

3 The Imperial March

From Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. No doubt this music and song is fantastic for the Galactic Empire. Especially Darth Vader song. It's so classic and is always gonna be loved by me

"The Imperial March has so much tension in it, considering Darth Vader's messed up body in Episode III, this coming from a Star Wars expert! "

I have never known a theme that made Star Wars so recognizable.

Theme song for United Nations.

4 Battle of the Heroes

From Star Wars Episode I: Revenge Of The Sith. With the best lightsaber battle in the whole saga this music delivers great! It's sad, catchy, exiting, and entertaining

It just an epic song with a combination of every other great song combined. It had the Imperial March as well as duel of fates, arguably two of the best songs in star wars.

The song was originally called darth vader

Yeah where is Yoda's theme?

5 Victory Celebration

The one good change Lucas ever made to the original trilogy. An absolutely gorgeous song: triumphant, emotional, and mournful all at once, and absolutely the perfect way to end the greatest trilogy ever put to film. - SventheCrusader

I could not agree more with the earlier comments. How can a song sound both happy and sad at the same time?! John Williams definitely knows what he's doing!

It really brings a new hope!

It’s a good music for celebrate a victory

6 Across the Stars

John Williams is genius. Imperial March, Binary Sunset, Duel of Fates, Main Theme and many others are masterpieces but Across the Stars is so good that I want this played at my wedding. This song suffer from Anakin and Padme mediocre romance, should be higher on the list.

This was introduced in Attack of the Clones and I feel that it's very underrated. If it wasn't for such a storyline to accompany it, Across the Stars would be remembered by all as one of the best love themes in all of cinema.

A fantastic, haunting, and just overall lovely and passionate piece. I would go as far to say that it's one of my favorite songs of all time

This is sooo good! - hollyeb13

7 Main Titles

From Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. This music is the best classic thing in the Star Wars saga. This theme represents all Star Wars more than any other theme you know it's Star Wars no matter what. It's so nice to hear, lovely, gorgeous, and so creative!

This is the obvious choice, It is the first thing you hear in the entire Star Wars franchise. I always get chills when this song plays.

8 Rey's Theme

Just made me love Star Wars The Force Awakens even more! It totally represents Rey's character. Definitely the best song from Star Wars 7

The character and theme sold the new trilogy for me.

It adds variety and emotion all the other Brass Wars songs don't


9 Cantina Band

Great little tune, and it always reminds me of the who shot first scene

Iconic. Maybe not the most regal piece, but a good laugh and memorable nonetheless.

Cantina band is always the best song.

"You like jizz? "

10 The Throne Room

From Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. This song of music is so classic oh my god! It's so happy sounding it gets you interested and it is so Star Wars sounding. ! It feels like you're supported laugh out loud.

The best of the best!

It is awesome

What retards, this is number 1 ffs!

The Contenders

11 Anakin's Betrayal

From Star Wars Episode I: Revenge Of The Sith. This is such a great sounding tune. It gave emotional effects and also had a great tune relating to the scene of declaring Order 66. It is really great!

It's a lovely song, one of the best John William's work

Good combonation of epic/depressing music, it is a song every sith needs to listen to while rushing into battle

sith gain power from passion as they say

Sooo good

12 Anakin vs. Obi-Wan

Very Epic For a Final Showdown

I absolutely love this piece.

13 Princess Leia's Theme
14 Enter Lord Vader

This song brings the awesomeness to darth vader

Enter Lord Vader always intensified the scene when Anakin arrives at Mustafar; this piece just showed me that Anakin really couldn't go back to the Good Side, and how different his mind had become. It's still my favorite song.

15 The Force Theme

Come on guys! This theme is probably the most common theme throughout the entire Star Wars Series. I'm pretty sure it appears at least 20 times in each of the movies in the trilogy.

Literally the best are you kidding?

This is the best one! Come on everyone!

Best theme in star wars

16 Jedi Temple March

An excellent theme with a foreboding tone that exudes sheer power. The perfect theme for the 501st legion and much of the clone army.

Obviously the most epic track ever made

This tune was actually from Episode 2: Attack of the Clones, however, most of it was taken out for some reason. It can be heard when Anakin finally tames the Reek, and is more recognisable during the Intro to Kashyyyk, and is at its most recognisable at the March on the Jedi temple and the Battle of Utapau. It works perfectly in any shot of a big army, and is a worthy successor to "The Imperial March".

17 The Asteroid Field

This is my favorite track from The Empire Strikes Back and it is also one of my favorites out of the entire franchise. The song itself is like a roller-coaster ride with the theme of traveling through an asteroid field with asteroids flying everywhere where the Millenium Falcon is trying to find a way out and trying to evade the Empire's fighter ships.

This the best song in the whole saga how fast it is going and all the instruments in there

This gets bonus points for having the imperial march and han and leia in it.

Its awesome

18 The Emperor's Theme

My Fave


19 A Jedi's Fury

How is this lower in the list than something like Rey's theme? Maybe the best and most iconic scene in the Movie universe, and the theme is maybe the best compose of all there is in Star Wars. The scene and the music made me in tears first time I heard it, and it made me do so again again many years later. This is pure art at its finest.

So underrated, the pure emotion in this masterpiece is capable of bringing me to tears; you can really hear the light and the dark side in this piece and just how much it pains Luke and Anakin to fight one another.

In Episode VI, this theme plays in the final scene of the duel between Vader and Luke. One of the most underrated duel themes in the saga, this theme really brings out the emotion in the final duel between father and son.

An underrated gem

20 Grievous Speaks to Lord Sidious

From Star Wars Episode I: Revenge Of The Sith. Wow the music is fit along so well the moment General Grievous steps out of the escape space shuttle. And millions of Grievous's Bodyguards, Battle Droids, Super Battle Droids, and Destroyer Droids looking at him as he walks by. The scene is great! My favorite song in the movie!
