Music is a small but integral part of the show. Each episode opens with the same theme, but closes with a song that is specific to the movie being discussed.

Living in These Star Wars

This is the title track of the inimitable album released in 1977. It has been the opening theme on each and every episode of SWM since the very beginning and was the closing theme for the original Star Wars Star Wars Minute. It was written and performed by former guest of the show, Dan Whitley and his Rebel Force Band. The beginning of the ‘Disco Version’ is the opening song, and an instrumental break from the original version played off the end.

The Empire Strikes Back

The closing theme for ESB minute comes is The Empire Strikes Back (Medley) by our good friend Meco, who also brought a little disco to many other Star Wars themed tunes.

Imperial March

Far from the bombastic John Williams piece, this version of the Imperial March is composed of ukulele and whistling. It was arranged by the Kuri-corder quartet. This catchy tune plays during Star Wars Minute ads and can be purchased on Amazon.

Lapti Nek

Ewok Celebration

Duel of the Fates

A jazzy instrumental version of the iconic song from The Phantom Menace can be heard over the end of episodes of The Phantom Menace Minute. It is preformed by The Andrew Allen Trio and is part of an album full of Star Wars-related music, available on Amazon.
