(This is another update, from Aug. 1, 2019. I want to complete the main themes of Star Wars, then add to them. There are a lot more, of course.)
From Star Wars, popular for 41 years…
This is, of course, from the first film.
John Williams hit a home run with this track, writing about four and a half minutes of a sound poem that rivals those from the great 19th century composers. You can hear all those who went before, and it’s obvious how he was influenced by so many great ones from the past. This probably completes the most important original themes so that at this point we have the Main Theme, the Force Theme, Yoda’s Theme and Leia’s Theme.
