I have all the Star Wars songs on my iPod, so when I'm at work I plug in the headphones and play them in order. However, I find that the movies should be done in classic-to-new order (Episode IV-to-VI, then I-to-III, for the ignorant), but the soundtracks really benefit from going in chronological (and by chronological, I mean time in the story, not production time) order. It is fascinating to see how John Williams retro-fits the new episodes in with his older work.For instance, the 'Emperor's Theme' is actually the basis of the 'Celebration' song at the end of Episode I. Fun. That all said, since I start from Episode I and don't work enough to get the whole experience in, I hear The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones a lot. While I still think ATOC is a masterpiece on a level with A New Hope and Empire, I have really come to appreciate, nay, love the very subtle tones of TPM. It's growing on me, like the movie does upon repeat viewing.
And not to whet my two readers' appetites, but I am planning on posting regarding my choices for best music from the Star Wars movies. Believe it or not, there are over 100 songs to choose from, so it's not that easy. I will take my time doing this, partly to give each soundtrack a good listen and a fair shake, and partly because I love the music itself. Only then will I divulge. Patience. For the Jedi, it is time to eat, as well.
