    Shag Kava gets an extra point for having JJ himself!


    The Cantina Band is a classic of course. I personally prefer the "Victory Celebration" over "Yub Nub".

    (Hmm... this thread feels familiar somehow Rodney... ;))

    I find it genuinely difficult, I enjoy them all.

    Yub Nub has an unfair advantage I think, because the way the orchestral music swells and is mixed in towards the end is glorious, and so nostalgic. But it's got that great combination of John Williams tunes and a bit of silliness to it.

    I love the way the strings are used in Solo's Chicken in the Pot (and the soundtrack album version is different to the actual movie soundtrack).

    The gungan parade is underrated. As some of you are probably aware, it’s very clever musical foreshadowing of the music in Return of the Jedi for the Emperor. Watch this:
    Emperor Palpatine's Music on The Phantom Menace? Music Comparison. - YouTube

    I really like some of the guitar work on Jedi Rocks.

    The opera music is awesome and so atmospheric.

    I don't really care for Jabba Flow from TFA as much as the others. It's fine, but it's a bit too 'cantina-wannabe' for me. I would have preferred they went for something more different-sounding.

    Yub Nub still wins out for me.

    I wonder if we'll see another band in The Rise of Skywalker?

    Frigin Dan has the best music.
    The Mon calamari opera the best visuals.

    I choose the cantina band.

    Apparently the KOR will have a dance session while Kylo's mask is getting fixed. Maybe there will be music too then.

    Got to be Max Rebo (original). He could go from a well tempered fugue to a tight but fat groove. Then gives us the big band tech funk of Lapti Nek plus a bit of free noodling to a walking bass.

    Cat can blow.
