Finale and End Credits from Crusade is just fantastic. It's got everything I want from Indy music.

 

Agreed. Probably one of my favorite bits of music in general, coinciding nicely with one of my favorite film endings of all time.

Of these choices...probably The Map Room: Dawn. Raiders March comes very close to winning out, but of course it suffers from being overplayed. All of these cues are brilliant, of course, as are a great many others written for these three films. Among my many favorites not represented here:

 

* the first four (!) cues from Raiders

* "Pffist Fight"

* the three desert chase cues from Raiders

* "Out of Fuel"

* "The Walls Come Down"

* the action music from the opening sequence of TLC

 

Just to name a few.

They're all bloody brilliant tbh.

 

But I went with TOD End Credits. It's got my favourite version of The Slave Children's Crusade and my favourite version of the Love Theme (film version!).

Do you mean 2:23 to 2:43? If you do, that is my favorite part of that track as well.  The reason I like TLC's end credits more is mainly due to 0:40 to 1:05.

And you've got to love Indy sharing his theme a little with Short Round!

Me too. It was tough, but I chose TOD end credits, for the same reasons you mentioned.

For now I'm going with Slave Children's Crusade. Left the longest impression on me since seeing the film as a kid but also when I rented from the local library that John Williams 1969-1999 CD where I found myself re-listening to it quite often.

It doesn't have the beauty of TOD.

So no it doesn't have everything one would want from Indy Music.
