* SerendipityWritesThePlot: The above mentioned use of a portion of "Jupiter" for "I Vow To Thee My Country" happened by accident. An overworked Holst was commissioned to set the poem to music, and he was relieved to no end when he realized the words fit the tune perfectly.

Gustav Theodore Holst (21 September 1874 - 25 May 1934) was an English composer (of [[UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} Swedish]] and UsefulNotes/{{Latvia}}n descent) of the late 19th to early 20th century. He suffered from neuritis, so he had significant difficulty with his right hand motor skills. This shattered his childhood dream of being a concert pianist. Holst is most notable for his orchestral Suite ''The Planets,'' a composition that became very popular and would go on to influence many of the composers and musicians of the 20th century.

* MusicalPastiche: When composing several pieces for ''Film/StarWars'', John Williams incorporated parts from ''The Planets'' such as "Venus" inspiring Leia's Theme as well as the using the main theme of "Jupiter" and the second part of "Mars" during the attack on the Death Star, and the beginning and end of "Mars" during the capture of the Blockade Runner and the Destruction of the Death Star respectively. Also the music where Luke is dragging Vader to the Shuttle Craft quotes the beginning of "Uranus".
