Here is a list of all the musical themes and motifs (i.e. recurring musical patterns - I am not including the extra incidental music that is heard once and then never reprised) used in "Star Wars, Episode IV: A New Hope", with a brief musical score excerpt included for reference, roughly in order of significance.
Tusken Raiders Theme (no score, but audio example):
NOTE: Throne Room, part a is not included here because it is identical to the Force theme illustrated above.
