Star Wars Cinematic Universe – The Music of Star Wars #1

This is one of my many draft posts that I never quite got around to updating until now which did link into a different post but I’ve decided to separate them. So I went down a little bit of a rabbit hole and found all of this awesome star wars music, some of it alternate versions of songs on the original soundtracks.

So I think I might start showcasing some of the alternate music made for Star Wars on my blog because I think that’ll be really fun to do and to share with my readers.

Via YouTube

And I decided to start with this one which is an edited version of Funeral Pyre For A Jedi except this YouTuber put together both versions. I didn’t even know this was an actual song because it sounds like Luke’s theme to me except with small variations (like different instrumental pieces added).

When you play them straight after each other, it’s so different and it really does have a different “feel” to the music just like the dude says at the end of the clip. What did you think of this clip?

What is your favourite piece of Star Wars music? Have you found anything special online that you think we might enjoy? If so, hit me up in the comments section and I’ll check it out!

Stay safe, keep creating, and I’ll catch you all in the comments or in my next post!

  1. I prefer the original version. Probably because that’s what I grew up with, I heard it a thousand times, and it’s what I hear when I think of that scene. I’m actually not particularly fond of the changes or additions Lucas made to the OT, because of this reason, lol.

    1. Yeah, some fans prefer the original, which I totally get. I love the original, but I don’t mind the change to the music. With the films, however, the original cut of the original trilogy is the best and always will be, period. Nobody can ever hope to change my mind on that lol while keeping in line with “all star wars is good star wars” πŸ˜‚
