Very good soundtrack one of my favorite

One of the best star wars songs

Arguably one of the greatest songs EVER composed.

So dramatic. Instant classic.

2 The Hologram / Binary Sunset

My god. This one just hits yo with all of Luke's longing and the desire to be more than what you are. It really reminds you of how you felt when you were a kid, and just reminds you of your dreams.

Aside from the main theme, this piece of music IS "Star Wars" for me. It sums it all up, really. Glad they re-used recently to bookend things. - truckturner

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.

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

All hail the glorious empire

Iconic, intimidating, and catchy. The perfect combination.

Theme song for United Nations.

4 Battle of the Heroes

Most emotional
Has power

Amazing captures the moment of obi wan vs. anakin

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.

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!

From Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi. This theme was created in 2004, with the appearance of the great Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker! So much better than yup nup laugh out loud. It's mourning and also victory sounding too!

6 Across the Stars

Beautiful song for a beautiful lady

Best music in all of star wars.

The story behind it is not very good, so this song is so underrated. It is catchy and ominous and it sums up Padme and Anakin's relationship well.

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.

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 Cantina Band

Ya like jazz?

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

"You like jizz? "

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

9 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!

10 Rey's Theme

The character and theme sold the new trilogy for me.

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

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

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 Imperial Cruiser Pursuit
15 The Force Theme

In reponse to those saying this should be at the top, IT IS! The force theme is the common name for the binary sunset piece of music, which is second on the list...

This and the main theme are the top 2. I mean what people?!?!


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.

16 The Imperial Suite

Such an underrated song! Very powerful!

17 The Droid Invasion UListen to Sample
18 Enter Lord 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.

This song brings the awesomeness to darth vader

Is this the theme of Mustafar?

19 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".

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

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

The most underrated track from the entire Star Wars saga

21 A Jedi's Fury

I remember being awestruck by the emotion and intensity of this piece and scene when I first watched Return of the Jedi. Even as a child, it made me realize how essential the music is in movies. The other soundtracks by John Williams are truly phenomenal, but in my humble opinion, A Jedi’s Fury is by far the most astounding (and underrated) composition in the Star Wars franchise.

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.

22 Grievous Speaks to Lord Sidious

This theme fits the character and sounds the best This dude needs a star wars story

"Your lightsabers will make a fine addition to my collection"

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!

23 The Emperor's Theme

24 Yoda's Theme UListen to Sample
25 Endor II

From 4:55 to 5:35, we are finally rewarded for watching the original saga. It's the scene we've all been waiting for, the climax of the series. It's the final duel between father and son, and Luke uses his pure emotion to win the fight. That is why this is the best song in all of Star Wars.

44 Anakin's Theme

Lovely soundtrack which represents young Anakin's innocence and the prospect of exciting adventures to come. I also hear a hint of tragedy from this score, which Anakin's life was cursed with. The dark transition at the end is a lovely foreshadowing, it's just musical genius!

Love the foreshadowing!

46 Parade of the Ewoks UListen to Sample
47 Kamino Theme

From Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones. This one is really not talked about as much laugh out loud. It is said to be good, but honestly I think it's really great the theme fits a rainy day like a rain planet of Kamino

48 A Sanctuary Moon

The bonus track for Episode VI. I dunno, I just really like it. It shows the urgency of the final battle between the Empire and the Rebels. Probably my second favourite Star Wars track, next to Battle of the Heroes.

49 Attack On Jakku

this cool
