Star Wars fans everywhere know the heroes and villains of the films. Luke Skywalker. Darth Vader. Han Solo. Emperor Palpatine. Princess Leia. Darth Maul. Yoda. Count Dooku. Lando Calrissian. There are certainly too many to name here which shows the creative nature of the movies. That also goes for the music. Scores, songs, and simple background music has become iconic, not just with the fandom, but with pop culture-at-large. This is true for me as well. Here are my Top 10 Favorite Songs From The Star Wars Soundtracks:
10. The Will of the Force (Stephen Barton, Gordy Haab)
Featured in the video game Jedi Fallen Order, this evokes the nature of the Force and how it binds us together.
09. The Master Switch (Michael Giacchino)
From Rogue One, this song shows our protagonists hunt for the master switch to relay the weakness of the Death Star.
08. A Friend (Ludwig Göransson)
07. Love Pledge and the Arena (John Williams)
Just before a battle in Attack of the Clones, Anakin and Padme confess their love for one another.

A New Hope brings us one of the greatest movie villain entrances as Darth Vader leads an attack on a Rebel cruiser.
