So, its no surprise that the vast majority of peeps here love ESB (I should know, I'm one of them), and I was wondering, what parts are your favourite?
For the record, mine are:
The Asteroid Chase (duh)
The Battle of Hoth (duh again)
The Version of the Imeperial March just before the battle of Hoth -- the massive one with all the little drums in the background; it makes it sound military and impressive and sinister all at the same time.
The version of the Imperial March in Track 7 of the 1997 release (in the movie, just before the guy sees that back of Vader's head w/o helmet) that has the military-sounding string flourishes at the end.
And one of the best bits that nobody seems to mention: The City In The Clouds theme that accompanies the Falcon as it flies into Cloud City. The soaring strings and horns and that soprano chorus remind me a bit of the theme for the first Star Trek. By the way, does anyone know if JW used an actual singer in the piece, or some kind of synthesizer?
Well, I think I've said enough. Love to hear what your favourites are...
