I have no clue what any of Williams' original cue names are, so I made up my own names for all of them, usually just using a description of the scene or some dialogue from it rather than trying to imitate Williams' naming style.

I'm sure I missed some things here and there so I welcome any at all questions and updates and corrections.

Without further ado here we go!

Some notes:

  • I like the concert arrangements first but you could certainly put them after instead
  • Obviously the main title isn't here, but I don't mind.  I've been listening to that piece for 20 years and don't need to hear it everytime I listen to this score.  Obviously if you can't live without it, you can use OST track 1 instead of FYC tracks 1 and 2.
  • For "The Way of the Force", I went with the OST version to get the great music for Rey getting the saber.  The FYC version replaces that bit with the music for the X-Wings attack, which is great but since we have similar music in the Sherzo track it was easy to keep the OST version.
  • For "The Starkiller", and "Torn Apart" you could swap in the OST version if you prefer.  Torn Apart has a softer ending on album than the FYC version
  • OST Track 10 Finn's Confession can replace FYC tracks 10 and 11 if you prefer that album arrangement with the Arrival at Takadona music.

OST 21 Scherzo for X-Wings (2:32)

 

 

 


THE RAW NUMBERS:

 

102 minutes of score in the final cut of the film (not including Miranda/Abrams source music).  77 of that released between the OST and FYC, leaving 25 completely unreleased.

 

The OST has another 15 minutes of music that isn't used in the film anywhere, meaning in total 92 minutes out of the 175 recorded has been released.  With 25 of that being the music heard in the film that is unreleased, this leaves about 58 minutes completely unreleased and unheard.

 

 

 

 

All comments welcome!

Crazy that there's a whole 14 minute stretch of music unreleased (between the tracks Han and Leia and On the Inside).

I have no clue what any of Williams' original cue names are, so I made up my own names for all of them, usually just using a description of the scene or some dialogue from it rather than trying to imitate Williams' naming style.

I recommend not putting the OST into chronological order. It works almost perfectly as arranged by Williams as a listening experience, save for some repetition in "The Rathtars!"

57 Farewell (2:16) - 22A [0:00-2:05] (2:05) [Microedited]

58 R2 Shows The Map (1:08) - 04A [0:00-0:13] (0:13) [Most of cue unreleased]

59 The Trip (2:42) - 22B [2:13-end] (2:42)

Interesting, I thought between Rey Meets BB-8 and Farewell and The Trip we had the full "R2 Shows The Map" film version.

Also, I think it's appearance in the film might be tracked or an insert, it replaces a flute bit at 2:05.

It works almost perfectly because it's the more chronological of his recent albums. Fortunately he didn't do his typical "listening experience" thing this time.

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you're saying

I am saying that the music you say is unreleased is just 0:00-1:10 of Rey Meets BB-8.

Some very clever person on a certain illegal website did an extensive theme breakdown for every track.

But the rest of the album track is the actual cue for Rey meeting BB8. I guess Williams just liked the way the later R2 cue opened better than the early cue so put it there.

Or the film dials out those 13 seconds (or they scored dropped footage) and the full Rey and BB-8 cue (with those 13 seconds) was tracked into the Farewell and The Trip cue

As much as I love Burning Homestead, I really wish they used Williams original intention when Rey gets the lightsaber.. It was distracting to me (since I know it by heart) and disappointing since the original would have worked perfectly. What prompted them to change it??

uh, it seems there's more unreleased music when you see it on a cue list like that :(

But now I saw it twice and still haven't noted major missing highlights

Yes, I think we got an effective and enjoyable album presentation.

Thanks, Jason, for this superb work. It's interesting to have the estimates of music yet to be released. I'll pay more attention to the film when I see it for the second time on tuesday, hoping to contribute on this thread, but the list is already highly detailed.

Wow, nice job! Curious... how many visits to the theatre does it take to compile this?

I was thinking I wanted to make myself a chronological edit, but like many of you said, the "listening experience" works for a change here. Best one since Empire Strikes Back's 2-LP. I love the Prequels expanded scores but their OST's were terribly incomplete and nonsensical listens on their own.

I've cleaned up the main posts a bit.  The new board software actually makes editing the HTML table much easier!

 

 

Also, i've been thinking about "Snoke": I think it could be a concert arrangement too!  Or, maybe not technically a concert arrangement, as much as a piece that was recorded "wild", not to picture, to be used as a bed underneath any Snoke scenes.  It's possible they hadn't figured out the timing of the Snoke scenes while Williams was scoring.

 

Basically, its REALLY hard to hear what is going on in the film during the the two major Snoke scenes music-wise, but the first one is definitely different than the music in the OST track.  It's possible the OST track is an alternate and not the film version, but it almost sounds like the film scene is scored with a normal cue, but then also the choral stuff from the OST track is mixed underneath it as well.

 

Hard to really tell.

Any chance of a track-by-track thematic breakdown ;)

I just might take you up on that suggestion Stefan.

What makes you think that?

 

Just what my ears tell me when comparing the OST track to the film.  

 

Well, I'll go back and re-evaluate those two spots in the film when I get a chance.

LOL!  Obviously I didn't do this in the movie theater!  I've seen the film theatrically exactly once - Thursday opening "preview" night, earliest showing - and just enjoyed the movie without analyzing anything.  I figured out all this stuff at home!

I would love to have the scored cues for sequences not in the final film.  I think for that we'll have to wait for game rips since its very unlikely to be in a 2CD release if its not in the film...unless these sequences (like the ground assault) are in the blu ray.

I agree. Looking at LeBlanc's complete cue list, there seems to be a shitload of short cues, which do not make for a great musical narrative. And it feels like there are "gaps" in this musical narrative (for example, from The Rathtars! to the arrival at Takodana music). It also lacks some lengthy musical sequences. For example, the big action climax of the score is reduced to the second half of Torn Apart and The Ways Of The Force (excluding Scherzo For X-Wings, since it's a concert arrangement), which feels too short for what is supposed to be the musical culmination of the story. There has to be more than just that.

 

But I'm sure the complete score has a lot of cues that "fill in the gaps", as I think I remember someone posted an interview where J.J. said they first scored the movie almost wall-to-wall, then decided to have more moments without music to let the film breathe a bit (or something like that). So I'm thinking there's quite a lot of unused music. Right now, there are approximately 61 minutes of music we haven't heard yet (we can hear 101 minutes of music in the film + 13 minutes exclusive to the OST, and we know they recorded about 175 minutes of music), and I'd say about half of that must be unused music (and not alternate music for what is heard in the film), either for deleted scenes or scenes in the film which were left unscored in the final mix.

This has likely already been discussed, but has the "chewie we're home" cue with the version of Luke's theme been released on the FYC or OST? Also, can the music heard when Han is in the falcon cockpit for the first time in TFA be heard on either of those releases (this music may be part of the cue that I mentioned first in this post)?

Chewie We're Home is on the OST (first minute of The Rathtars), but the film version does seem a little different. It's not on the FYC.

 

Han in the MF cockpit is completely unreleased.

Thanks. I love that version of Luke's theme in Chewie We're Home. I do wish we had the cue from shortly after -- with Han in the cockpit (for the first time in the film), though.
