"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
― Plato

Assumption: most of us are here because we're fans of Star Wars. The story and its characters sucks us in and here we find an escape from reality as we immerse ourselves into a rich and vivid virtual reality of the universe we've grown to love. 

But what good is that universe if it lacks one thing that gives it life, gives it meaning? Without its music, Star Wars wouldn't be the same. The music in the Star Wars films and games gives it life and soul. It engages our emotions.

In roleplay, it is no different. Though we may roleplay in silence most of the time (except for that not-so-awesome cantina music), imagine the difference it would make to hear the sounds of John Williams as you begin to incite your enemy, as you draw your weapon and start an all-out cantina brawl with countless Treeks flinging stones across the room. Though this might sound a little silly (but super fun), music enhances the feel of that scene tenfold. 

In today's Friday Focus, we'd like to know how imperative the music of Star Wars is to your gaming, your roleplaying and your storytelling, both solo and with friends. Does it change your mood? Does it affect the way you feel? I have no doubt it does, but pop your thoughts into the comments section below! 
Mahlak Daseon, M-D I like to Jam to this while looking through the site or playing swtor https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Sczx0Xztd4
The Snowies. Call me crazy, but I'm pretty sure Plato did not say that... In other matters, more relevant to the article, music...

Darkness falls across the land. The midnight hour is close at hand. Creatures crawl in search of blood. To terrorise y'alls neighbourhood. Because this is Thriller, and Darth Vader is busting out the moves to his favourite track with his white minions in support. Regardless of our age or coordination, we all like to boogie from time to time, whether it be because you can actually put two moves together in smooth transition, or because you want to be the laughing stock of your mates who are watching from the sidelines. And what is it that allows us to do this? Music. 

We listen to music at home, in our vehicles, and whilst walking the dangerous streets of our home cities. It adds feeling and emotion to our environments, with those feelings influenced by the genre of music we're listening to. Star Wars, with the assistance of the brilliant John Williams, does an outstanding job of making us feel the emotion being conveyed through the story by way of music. There are numerous tracks contained across the six movies, as well as the countless Star Wars themed games. The Knights of the Old Republic series contains some memorable tracks, which will undoubtedly make their way into The Old Republic. In saying that, be prepared for plenty new sounds in BioWare's big release for 2011. 

For today's Force Reflection, go back to the movies and the games you've played, and let us know which song made you feel the most, whether it be sadness, joy, or the urge to pick up a lightsaber and begin swinging it around in fury. You'll find an extensive list of songs published on YouTube, so don't be afraid to reference your favourite picks.
