Legendary composer John Williams brought the world of Star Wars to life through his musical scores for the original and prequel trilogies. With the seventh installment in the franchise, The Force Awakens, he continues that tradition with a soundtrack fans examined closely before it was even released for clues to the new movie.
Listening to the soundtrack now, Williams made good on his promise that there would be some recognizable themes from the past for fans to find here. However, the soundtrack mostly provides music that is brand new and still fits perfectly with the style of Star Wars. It has a few pieces that would certainly make me rethink the order of my top Star Wars musical moments! The soundtrack even earned the 83-year-old Williams an amazing 50th Academy Award nomination.
With that being said, some pieces stand out much more than others on the 23-track album. Each is worth a listen, but in my opinion some are worth your time more than others. Here is my ranking of the music from The Force Awakens soundtrack.
