Top 10 Best Star Wars Songs

These are the top 10 best songs from the Star Wars film series. 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

Classic piece! The PT as a whole had a better sound track than the OT and the ST. Although I ranked this single piece #1, the entire sound track from Revenge of the Sith is epic and is easily the best of the saga. John Williams at his best. PT and OT sound tracks are both great though. ST not so much.

This song is why Star wars is the best thing created by man in terms of entertainment. Literal adrenaline rush and dopamine starts going to ones head. As if we all are just about to get into a sable duel ourselves.

2 The Hologram / Binary Sunset

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.

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.

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.

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

An ultimate evil anthem that should be played when the Galactic Empire wishes to conquer the galaxy. Fire up the Death Star!

"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! "

4 Battle of the Heroes

Wow. John Williams put everything he could into this. Brilliance, it's like this is the true battle of the ages, the one that shifted the galaxy into turmoil. Anakin became Vader, Obi-Wan became Ben. Nothing was the same after this and it truly feels like it with this score, only Imperial March and Duel of the Fates beats this for me.

This song was a great way to close out the Star Wars prequels and really helped to set the atmosphere during Anakin and Obi-Wan's duel on Mustafar. It's very effective at making the scene feel emotional and gives viewers the sense that there truly is no turning back for Anakin. I really don't know why this song gets so overlooked.

5 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.

Incredibly complex and emotionally resonant. Those who grew up playing the Galactic Conquest mode on the original Star Wars Battlefront 2 will recognise this track as the heightened political piece that it is.

6 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.

I agree this is STAR WARS!. As soon as you hear the song start, you can visualize the movie

7 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.

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!

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!

8 Cantina Band

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

Cantina band is always the best song.

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

9 Anakin's Betrayal

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".

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!

10 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

The Contenders
11 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.

12 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.

Grand and expansive, this track keeps you on your toes but also lets you experience the majesty of space.

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

13 Yoda's Theme
14 The Imperial Suite

Pure underrated instant-classic. Perfectly encapsulates the pompous and arrogant ethos of the Empire.

Such an underrated song! Very powerful!

15 The Droid Invasion

Nothing hypes me up for an underwhelming CGI Windows XP battle than this amazing track. It really captures the brutal and corporate nature of the Trade Federation.

16 Princess Leia's Theme
17 The Emperor's Theme

Menacing and overbearing, this song helps the Emperor's presence seep into your soul.

Pure evil incarnate put into instrumental form. It sounds like you're face to face with the devil

The way this is so sinister conveys all of palpatine in my opinion

18 Imperial Cruiser Pursuit
19 Order 66
20 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.

21 The Force Theme

Seriously? This song IS Star Wars. It's possibly the most recognizable song in cinematic history. I get chills every time I hear it. This song represents everything and anything Star Wars has stood for, and perfectly captures the triumph, beauty, loss, and tragedy of the Skywalker Saga. It plays during some of the most important scenes and honestly just holds some of the most significance in Star Wars.

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.

22 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!

While the actual character may not live up to this theme (outside of the 2003 cartoon appearance), nothing establishes a new villain as solidly as a menacing and epic soundtrack. This is both of those things.

23 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.

24 Jyn Erso & Hope Suite
25 Han Solo and the Princess

This theme is perfection. Period
