10 most-popular 'Star Wars' songs revealed

Posted on

Would you believe the most popular Star Wars song is from the most derided Star Wars movie? 

That was one of the surprises on Spotify’s rankng of the most frequently streamed tracks from all six major theatrical Star Wars movies, released in time for that unofficial Star Wars holiday, May the Fourth. The most popular track—both globally and here in the U.S. (hey, we all actually agree on something!) is “Duel Of The Fates,” John Williams’ rousing score of the Obi Wan and Qui Gon vs. Darth Maul menage-a-lightsaber fight from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

Frequent listeners to Williams’ music are probably saying “Of course it is!” because “Duel Of The Fates” is indeed quite an epic and popular track (video below) that’s perfect for turning turning the drudgery of a spinning class into feeling like you’re racing on a Speeder Bike. But it’s also a song that’s less recongized by casual fans than, say, the “Main Title” theme (which didn’t even make the global Top 10), or “Cantina Band,” or Darth Vader’s “Imperial March.” 

Here is the list:
