    Very useful Razz

    I have a few questions, but I think I'll wait until the real board returns: there's little chance of them being answered here. The only one I will ask is that the incomplete cue list lists one cue prior to Talk of Podracing and after Running Out of Time. I think this may be the Tatooine source music - after listening to the UE, there's some obvious fades and reverbed endings going on in the source music.

    Was the source music composed by Joseph Williams? I think so.

    Lol. lol!

    THEY EVEN EDITED THE SOURCE MUSIC!!!

    I got a question, does the Emperor's Theme belong in Anakin Changes [5m1b]?

    No. It's pitch-shifted from Finale's Sidious Theme rendition. There is something else that goes there, so I have been told.

    So this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJr1gbdOD_g would be a pretty accurate representation of how it should be without that missing portion?

    Pretty much, yes.

    Yeah, that's about right. The missing passage is kind of an ominous build up to the big statement of the Imperial March. It's not too long or amazing or anything.

    because it was recognizable? and of yet, there was no quiet renditions of the emporer's theme for the to use to track in?

    The problem is that it is recognizeable as the theme of Palpatine/Sidious. They could have used anything else. I'm sure there's even stuff in TPM they could have used.

    I am sure Lucas/Williams (Perhaps) considers it a theme for the Dark Side
