May the force be with you, and your weekend spoiler free. Some jerks on the internet are already revealing the secrets of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” so you’d be best advised to turn off your social streams and stay away from your computer in general until you see what J.J. Abrams has cooked up for fans. But one way you can still feel the force before you see the movie is with the score, and the whole thing has landed, ready to take your ears to a galaxy far, far away.
John Williams returns to the franchise, and admittedly, while it’s good work, nothing can top his original, iconic “Star Wars” compositions. Still, he nails the flavor we’ve come to expect from sonic backdrop to these films, hopeful, romantic, and of course, full of adventure. So sit back, turn up your speakers, and listen below. (And don’t worry, the song titles don’t reveal anything too important about the plot).
