Soundtrack Q & A
Q: What is the music playing when the Emperor says that "We will have peace"? Then the loud horns play and Anakin marches into the Jedi Temple with the clones behind him. What song is that from? (from siggyboy17 in North Haven,CT USA)
A: At the end of "Padme's Ruminations" is where the Emperor says "We will have peace." Where you refer to the part where Anakin marches into the temple... that music is not found in the soundtrack for some reason. (thanks to brett, Tennesseeadd more info
A: It's from the Attack of the Clones (Episode 2) entitled "Love Pledge and the Arena." Track 12 from that CD... the music located in the middle of the song. (thanks to ABBADON, detroit MIadd more info

Q: What is the song playing when Anakin and Obi-won fight on the lava planet? (from Johnny in Winnipeg)
A: I am pretty sure that would "Battle of Heroes" by John Williams. (thanks to siggyboy17, North Haven, CT, United Statesadd more info
A: The music heard during both the Anakin/Obi-Wan and Sidious/Yoda fights are a mix of "Battle of the Heroes" and "Duel of the Fates" (from the episode 1 score). (thanks to Martinh65, Marietta, GAadd more info

Q: What's the music playing during Padme's funeral? (from Afro_Sam in Rugby, England)
A: That can be found on the track "The Birth of the Twins/Padme's Destiny." (thanks to MAM, Oklahomaadd more info
A: It's an instrumental version of the Episode 1 funeral theme which segues into a statement of the Force Theme, followed by the Imperial March (thanks to freez, USAadd more info

Q: What's the music playing during the battle of Kasshyk? I believe it's also playing when Anakin is marching into the Jedi temple to slaughter the Jedi. (from myles in spain)
A: It's "The Droid Invasion and the Appearance of Darth Maul" from the Phantom Menace soundtrack. The other one played when Anakin is marching into the Jedi temple is similar, but another track: "Love pledge and the Arena" from the Attack of the Clones OST (thanks to lukimalle, Re, NRW, Germanyadd more info

Q: After Obi Wan goes to visit Padme and we see Anakin at the Mustafar system staring at the surrounding area, what song is playing then? (from Logano in Tennessee)
A: "Anakin's Dark Deeds" and the part you're looking for starts about 2:15 in. (thanks to Joe, NEadd more info

Q: What song is playing after Anakin kills all the separatists on Mustafar and he kills one and he turns around and his eyes are like a golden color? He also has his hood over his head, if that helps. (from delta_2150 in Alabama)
A: "Anakin's Dark Deeds" and the part you're looking for starts about 2:15 in. (thanks to Joe, NEadd more info

Q: What is the music playing after the words in space finish? There are loud drums in the movie and I love that part but it's not on the CD.  (from Job in Grand Rapids, MI)
A: It's the film version of Track 1 "Revenge of the Sith". The differences lie in the added bass drums, which replace 10 seconds in the beginning of the album track and are then added to the piece for about 3-4 minutes. (thanks to freez, USAadd more info

Q: What is the name of the song playing when Anakin and Obi-Wan Kenobi are fighting on the narrow pipe that is steaming (Obi-Wan is walking backwards and Anakin walking forward towards Obi-Wan) and then they jump down onto some platform and resume fighting and then Anakin punches Obi-Wan, at that moment, what song is playing? It's not Battle of the Heroes or Anakin vs. Obi-Wan because I have both of these songs and I do not hear that part. I like that part and want to know what song it is or comes from because it sounds so tragic and clearly emphasizes the tragedy of the two friends fighting, the pain that both feel emotionally, and the anger Anakin has inside, and guilt from the things he's done.
