Did anyone else find Andi saying the phrase "Star Wars" six times in ten seconds from :06-:16 slightly discombobulating???

I love Star Wars as much as anyone, but if I was your kid I would be rolling my eyes so far if you made me listen to this on a road trip.

My critiques:
Obviously, have to give you **** for the lack of prequel tracks. At the very least, I'd add Across the Stars, Anakin's Dark Deeds, and the Battle of the Heroes.

Hope is a great one to bridge the gap, best track from RO.

Good OT picks, I would have added Han and Leia's Love theme, and maybe Luke & Leia.

For TFA, Ach-To = Jedi Steps? If not, you for sure need that. My favorite track from the ST thus far. Kylo's theme is really needed as well.

Good call finishing with Throne Room.

Edit: Just realized there's no Imperial March. Bro.

Well I wasn't really trying to make a "Best Of", just a lot tracks with some commonalities, like moments when two themes come together. Ach-To is from TLJ and beautifully ties Luke's theme to Rey's. I like Across the Stars but that's just not a good movie, it's hard to enjoy it. Battle of the Heroes I don't like that much.

I really like the Rebel Fleet from ESB but that track includes all the end credits.

What I really found from multiple listens is how much I love the music when Luke reaches out to Leia in ESB when he's hanging from the bottom of CLoud City. The look on Leia's face in the Falcon has become one of my top 5 single "Moments" in any of the movies.

Still rather watch the prequels than the abortion that was TLJ, and I saw it three times (for free).

TLJ is the only one that I have only seen once. In fact, only one I have seen less than 10 or so times.

My kids haven't even asked to see it again.

Sounds like Oscar Isaac spilled the beans before Lucasfilm could!

(Only major cast member from IX confirmed thus far.)

I always gave my Dad a hard time for playing CDs of the Aggie Band on road trips and now I see it wasn't that bad. I think my mom would have overruled my father if he attempted to play a Star Wars themed playlist.

Luke's arc in TLJ is amazing, and this scene is as strong as any in the history of Star Wars. Doubly awesome to know the kiss was improvised.

I also heard Yoda improvised the lightning strike. Whole cast and crew was caught off guard. Fortunately a quick thinking PA managed to save the books.

Well considering I drove us from Houston to Orlando and back, I think my wife would have let me listen to Brian Earl Spilner sings the blues the whole way and not cared.

My girls are 7 year old twins. One was Yoda for Halloween last year and can tell you any person's lightsaber color. She has gone to see TLJ and Solo in the theater with me on 2nd viewings. The other loves Rey and Princess Leia. I've got fantastic photos of them both meeting Chewie and BB8 at Hollywood Studios last November, and despite not liking SW, my wife is all in on the hype machine for Galaxy's Edge. We're going in 2020.

Oh, and when I was making each of the girls their own CDs for the roadtrip, the first one said "All of the Yoda songs and that's it."

I admit that we tried to watch the TLJ a second time when the wife red boxed it.

Family lost interest less than halfway through. We decided we'd just finish it the next night. It was unceremoniously taken back to Redbox without the slightest complaint by the kids.

The only other Redbox downer like that, I can recall in the last few years, was Black Panther.

Yeah I went there.

Although I think I read somewhere on Texags that a few people didn't like TLJ, I watch it studying Mark Hamill's every move and word because he is so freaking awesome as Luke, regardless of what's going on around him. The music on the reveal that he's not even on Crait but rather Ach-to is one of my favorite sequel trilogy tracks.

The entire Coruscant chase in AOTC was a happy accident. When the little bug came through Padme's window to kill her, the scene was supposed to end after Anakin cuts it in half. But Ewan McGregor got so into character that he leapt out the window to grab the robot, and Lucas hopped into his flying taxi with a camera and filmed the ensuing chase throughout the skies of Coruscant.

Good thing the cameras are always running when Lucas is running the show.
