Which One is Better.......
 
C'mon, you all have a favourite, but this is where you must chose......

Which one is better, Duel Of The Fates or The Imperial March.....

leXX 01-10-2003 06:55 AM

I'm gonna have to say Imperial March. I love Duel of the Fates but when you hear the Imperial March, it sends a shiver down your spine.

shukrallah 01-10-2003 12:44 PM

imperial march! there both really good, but i think imperial march is the best.

Tie Guy 01-10-2003 03:20 PM

My vote for best music of all time, period, is The Throne Room.

Its the very last scene of ANH when Luke, Han, and Chewie walk done and get the rewards.

Most excellent.

The Imperial March. The music's so strong and sinister; it's the perfect representation of a powerful dictatorial regime.

SettingShadow 01-10-2003 08:11 PM

The Imperial March, its so powerfull, Duel of the Fates rocks too but Imperial March gets my vote.

Rogue15 01-10-2003 08:25 PM

music at the end of esb and the music when luke owns vader in rotj, as well as the emperor's theme.

mercatfat 01-10-2003 08:53 PM

The Imperial March, all the way. Duel of the Fates is just alright, nothing too special. The march does a great job of capturing the tone of the Empire.. or does the song set the tone? Either way, it rocks.

The song when Luke looks at the two suns in New Hope is so emo.

JediNyt 01-10-2003 09:45 PM

They are different songs with different moods and mean different things so I dont have a fav of the 2.

Katarn07 01-10-2003 10:54 PM

They are the 2 best SW music, maybe excluding the theme...

1) Theme
2) Imp March
3) DotF
4) AotC Love Theme
5) Cantina Music --- Mad About Me (SW name)

I am going to have to disagree with everyone else and say "Duel of the Fates". It really get me pumped and I always think of it as good vs. evil or the Sith and the Jedi.

The Imperial March is good too but it is more of a marching song to me. Duel of the fates is like a epic battle and just gets me on the edge of my seat.

True. But Imp March sounds kinda cooler. Or maybe its just classic. I dunno.

Mex 01-11-2003 12:16 PM

I like the Imperial March, it creepy and makes you think "Hey you there!" :D

Jed 01-11-2003 04:03 PM

I'd say Duel of the Fates, but the music that made me shiver was in ROTJ. The music when the Emperor says, "So be it....Jedi..."

:D

Wraith 8 01-12-2003 04:20 PM

when the podraces arena scene starts.. when the flags come on to the track... thats my favorite part of music... i get goosebumbs.. and iof these two.... the imperial march. no doubt

-s/<itzo- 01-12-2003 05:41 PM

i like Imperial March very much. its a classic, its old school. but duel of fates, its new, exciting, its much more up to date.

Taos 01-12-2003 05:51 PM

My vote goes for Duel of the Fates. I just love that fight scene in TPM. :)

Reborn Outcast 01-12-2003 06:04 PM

Yes Imperial March for me... it sends little tingly things down my back that make me want to scream...:eyeraise:

C Shutt 01-14-2003 08:01 AM

Is this even a question? The Imperial March is part of our popular culture, it's instantly recognizable twenty years later, even by people who aren't Star Wars fans. How many people will remember DOTF twenty years from now? Hell, how many people would remember it now?

ZBomber 01-15-2003 08:11 PM

Um... sure.... o.O
I love the music for the Episode 2 commericials :D

ckcsaber 01-15-2003 08:50 PM

The Imperial March was great.

But the peice of music that has the most depth for me is Lukes theme. Y'know, the music playing while the twin suns are setting in ANH. That music is perfect for that scene. It brings out all his emotions, his longing to go out in the universe.

Hell man, I can't even remeber DotF now! The Imperial March is the ringtone I have on my cell phone, along with the SW theme, but the Impy March is the one I have set. Oh, in case you didn't get that, I voted for the Impy March. ;)

leXX 01-16-2003 11:29 AM

I had the Imperial March as a ringtone for ages but it's too low and I kept missing calls. I have the Star Wars Theme now, along with a couple of others for different caller groups.

Katarn07 01-16-2003 04:39 PM

I wanna get my dad an SW ringtone, but in the meantime it's Mozart, but he is getting an Indy theme soon from my sister's boyfriend.

Here, check this song out. It is a redone version of the theme song from the DOS/ PS1 game, my favorite of all time, Dark Forces. For not being done by John Williams (well, the scrolling up music is), it is pretty darn good. Just right click, and select save target as.

The author doesn't like the transition from orchestra to synth, and is working on that as well as the rest of the music from DF. He said when he has more of the soundtrack done, he'll post a thread about it in the swamp and when it is complete, I suggested it be posted on this site

Dark Forces Mod Official Site

leXX 01-17-2003 04:34 AM

That Dark Forces song is really good! I'm looking forward to the Mod.

teutonicknight 01-17-2003 03:28 PM

Imperial March wins for me, but Duel of the Fates comes in close behind.

vegietto 02-01-2003 12:24 PM

the imperial march is so kool i like it alot better then any of the songs

Darklighter 02-01-2003 12:57 PM

I think Duel of the Fates is my fave because it's just so great to listen to, and it works so well with that final battle in TPM. The Imperial March is the classic SW tune, but it's somehow worn out it's welcome. Star Wars needs new blood:)

boinga1 02-01-2003 11:16 PM

Imperial March, so powerful, beats DOTF by a hair

Darth Groovy 02-01-2003 11:44 PM

Imperial March ;)

Works on so many levels.

Uhuh. It's a nice substitute to the Jeopardy music to hum when asking someone a question. Try it! My Geometry teacher did it and I was like, "Why are you humming the Imperial March?!"

The mod site is being redone by the webmaster, LF name The_One, and once he is done, the entire DF soundtrack by the guy that did the theme wil be released on it. I can't wait!

Clemme w/Stick 02-02-2003 07:19 AM

Lynk Former 02-02-2003 07:32 AM

u can't get any more 'grand army with lotsa power' soundin than Imperial March

Lord Glorfindel 02-02-2003 10:28 PM

I LOVE DOTF!!! It is such an awesome song and so is Imperial March, but DOTF is by far the coolest

Lynk Former 02-03-2003 02:52 AM

Looks like Imperial March is dominating... it's SO good at it isn't it :p :D

My all-time favorite Star Wars piece is Binary Sunset, but between the two, got to be Imperial March.
