Which one do you prefer?

 

Both are different enough, but their names make for a good poll.  (This one is dedicated to @Jurassic Shark

 

I think part 1 is the second best cue from the score (first one being the Main Titles)

 

But I also think Part 2 really finishes the score and movie perfectly.  Putting everything to ease.  I  always kinda compared it to the beauty of the Jaws end titles.  It really wraps the score up.

I too have always thought of them as one long piece, and would never contemplate thinking of them separately or trying to rank them against each other

While they form one piece, I think they're sufficiently different in tone and approach as to be comparable.

 

Part 1 is a wonderful cycle through emotions, with an amazing buildup, whereas part 2 is the release. I'd say I probably listen to part 2 more due to its tamer nature, but it doesn't make part 1 less brilliantly effective.

 

So I'm also going to cheat and say I love both equally, but more because both parts have their qualities.

Part 1 does that have spine tingling violin at 4:23 that is arguably the best moment in the score.

 

But it also has the huge bang the first second that always scares the shit out of me when I'm listening all the way through and forget.

 

I legit almost edited it out on my playlist cause I mostly listen with headphones and it always kills my ears.

I edited Into the Basement and Asthma Attack together, and cut out the first 25 seconds of the latter. The dissonant opening is nice, but I don't need it enough to also keep the shock opening. I always found it very distracting after the former calmed down.

Utterly stupid question. Absolutely stupid. You listen to the both one after the other.

 

Thank you, Joe. Very cool.

I mean, it’s the climax and the denouement. Can’t really have one without the other, in my opinion.

 

It’d be like cutting out the last couple minutes of “The Great Eatlon” and calling it a separate cue.

you guys don't have to take it that seriously.

 

If the cues were called Hand of Fate and Finale there wouldn't be a poll.

 

Just wanted to talk about Signs

 

Part 2 is better though.  Surprised it's losing.

 

Might do a Battle of Endor 1, 2 or 3 later for another good poll.

Clearly JNH wanted them separately for this.  I wonder why.

They do but kinda not really at the same time. They do feel very separate in my honest opinion

Don't the cues run together seamlessly? I feel like separations like this are typically for editing purposes.

I am not trying to be harsh but they are two sides of the same coin. They are eternally back to back.

Lol Joe I know you weren't no worries

 

My intentions on this poll were slightly non serious but also very serious.
