It’s May the fourth, and as all Star Wars fans know, that means it’s a day to celebrate the classic, ongoing sci-fi adventure series. Google Play Music is throwing their hat into the celebratory ring with a collection of three themed radio stations heavily featuring the works of the film composer John Williams.

These stations are streaming now, and are most likely at the forefront of your “Listen Now” home page on both the browser and app versions of the service. May the Fourth is the category, and the three featured stations are Cantina Band Swing, Epic Film Scores, and Star Wars’ Finest.

Cantina Band Swing is actually a fairly odd shuffle of music that kicks off with the classic jaunty tune from everyone’s favorite Mos Eisley bar band. However, the station is seeded with a variety of offbeat club and swing music in addition to John Williams, making for a very eclectic mix.

Epic Film Scores is a station that has long been available to Google Play Music listeners, and it features the likes of Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, James Horner, and more. Music ranging from Star Wars to The Lord of the Rings to Harry Potter can all be found here. If you’re looking to have an epic day, here’s your pick.

Star Wars’ Finest is just what it says on the tin: a collection of leitmotifs and powerful themes from all seven Star Wars films. The force is strong with this one.

Give these stations a spin by pulling up the app. If you haven’t given Google Play Music a try yet, grab it in the Play Store by clicking the button below, and let us know how you’ll be celebrating today in the comments below!
