3 Best Pieces of Star Wars Music

By Caitlin Mclaren - Culture Editor

The Star Wars Saga is one the the biggest film collections of all times. The pieces of music in the soundtrack are renowned all around the world! Here are my three favourite pieces!


Duel of The Fates

This dramatic piece really comes to life when we see Darth Maul fighting Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi Wan. It fit so well with the choreography of the fighting that arguably it’s one of the best villain themes alongside The Imperial March. It was not only used in this scene but featured in all 3 of the prequel films. The iconic sound will live with Star Wars fans forever.

Across the Stars

This music features all throughout Star Wars: Episode 2: Attack of the Clones. The theme was used primarily to emphasis the romance blossoming between both Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala. It was used to portray the ever strengthening bond between the two until Anakin unfortunately meets his fate when he turns to the dark side.

The Imperial March

This has to be one of the biggest theme tunes to a villain in the whole of cinema. It would be ignorant to ignore the iconic Imperial March. Known as ‘Darth Vader’s theme’, it is a class example of how a piece of much can be connected with a character. This theme is near enough featured in all of the Star Wars collection other than New Hope. It has become a villianous standard that films, many television programmes and other films have paid homage to.
