The badass Samurai Champloo score cue "Sneak Chamber" and the Star Wars: The Force Awakens score cue "The Ways of the Force" are two of 21 film or TV score cues that were written for moments of swordplay and have been compiled by me into a 100-minute mix I'm calling "En Garde!" The mix wasn't my idea. It was actually the idea of an AFOS listener from San Francisco who sent it to me back in 2002. But all the tunes during the mix were chosen by me, and 10 of the tunes were produced after 2002. I'm glad I waited until now to do this because between 2002 and now, Samurai Champloo, Game of Thrones and a Star Wars movie that actually doesn't suck all happened.
