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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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! "

It has a great tune that reminds us that occasionally evil wins, but later on good will always prevail.

4 Battle of the Heroes

There's a select few songs that are just iconic, and to me, this is tied with Duel of the Fates in just how epic it is while also helping you feel the emotions of the film.

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.

It's epic and yet tragic, it's grandiose and yet personal, it's a battle between good and evil and yet it's two brothers fighting to the death. Easily one of John Williams's best pieces of work

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.

Literally the most beautiful and haunting song I have ever heard. It perfectly captures their love for each other yet so heavily foreshadows the tragedies yet to come for both of them.

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!

This is the Ewok's Celebration, right? Not Yub Nub?
K, it really marks a definitive end to the trilogy, like an end to all the war and the era of peace starting.
And then Kylo Ren comes and ruins everything.

8 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!

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

Extremely Good Music! I am really shocked this is not on the contenders/top tens list!

9 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

I love this song

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.

The best of the best!

It is awesome

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.

Exciting and amazing. Two words

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 The Force Theme

This song, to me, IS Star Wars. It captures what Star Wars is more than Duel of the Fates or The Main Title Theme or anything. This song feels like balance

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.

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...

20 Order 66
21 A Jedi's Fury

This song perfectly portrays how fragile Luke's emotional state is as he comes dangerously close to falling to the dark side.

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.

22 Grievous Speaks to Lord Sidious

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.

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!

This piece truly sets the stage for the character General Grievous, it makes him more of a threat and he hunts down more jedi.

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 The Immolation Scene

Such a sad and powerful song, it's under appreciated and it's in my personal top 5
