Star Wars Binary Sunset

Star Wars Binary Sunset
This is one of my favorite musical cues from John Williams in the Star Wars franchise. I remember hearing the sweeping music as Luke stares off into the double sunset. It is always an important moment. It shows the frustration Luke has in mind. He's conflicted because he hears the calling on going out on adventures in space.
The French Horns really sell it in this track.  This is the "force theme" first time in all its glory.  
Now, this wasn't the original track for that scene. Williams wrote and conducted completely different version of this cue. It is so different that it would have changed the way people would have perceived the scene.

Sounds darker doesn't it? By the way, skip ahead to the 5:00 mark to listen to alt versions of the main theme.
