That's what i think about it

This is classical music. It's from a classic movie. Classical doesn't have to be all violins and flutes and cellos and all that stuff
Report as inappropriate
Why is this on my Sorcers apprentice suite station? This is not classical music.

By far, the most iconic movie villain theme of all time.

Ok the last starwars movie was good, but if u look at the series as a whole, the last one doesn't really fit into it, the sith had all been destroyed and the was really the point of starwars and to add in a 2 more sith from no where makes 0 sense.

That moment when you accidentally report someone's comment as inappropriat e . Sorry whoever you were that said this song gets stuck in your head for a week when you hear it. I do agree with you though if that rectifies the situation at all:)

This will always be the gold standard for the Star Wars movies. I still get amazed by the crisp, clean, powerful notes. That brass! Great articulation and rich sound. It's amazing.

5/5 stars. That's about all that needs to be said, except that I hope (and anticipate) they'll incorporate this song into the new movies.
