10 Interesting Interpretations of The Imperial March

Published by at 10:45 am under Lists,Movies


Perhaps one of the most recognizable themes in movie history,  The Imperial March or sometimes referred to as “Darth Vader’s Theme” by John Williams will always be a staple in any fan of the Star Wars series.

It’s negative tone and almost ominous feel make the audience realize something evil is afoot.  And I must admit, God it sticks in your head after you hear it doesn’t it?

Well, just like folks have tinkered with the theme of Super Mario Brothers all these years, plenty have messed with the Imperial March.

Here are 10 pretty interesting versions of the Imperial March

    that last one is actually from Star Wars: Force Commander and was available for download from the official site when the game was originally released. Now you can get it from imeem : http://www.imeem.com/the-kid/music/-e2n6rzv/star-wars-force-commander-imperial-march-rage-mix/ There’s a few other remixes of the song from that game too that I don’t think you listed.

    Don´t you think now that it exists, the Epica version (from The Classical Conspiracy album) is, obviously and objectively, one of the best interpretations?

    You know its original?


    That’s right, Hunding’s motif is almost identical.
