50. Triumvirate Music Guide

 What follows is a list of all the music that appeared in the standard version of Robotech episode 50: "Triumvirate." Bold text denotes that this is the first appearance of that piece of music.

ADDITIONAL NOTES: The Cosmic Harp rears its messy head again, as we have a piece that starts out  the same as "(a)" but then goes into a different closing. Then there's a brief break and we go into "(b3)," followed by what sounds like "(a)" edited a bit shorter so it will end in time with the scene.

I compared it to (a2 Variation) from "A New Recruit" and I think it's yet another new piece. So I'm calling it (a3 Variation). At this point I'm starting to think there may be enough unreleased variations on "The Cosmic Harp" that it could probably get its own EP.

And speaking of "The Cosmic Harp (b3)," this is also the first time it's used in the series.

Usually when I list the same piece of music back to back it's because it's used, then we just have some dialogue with no music for a while, and then the same music is used again. In the case of "Boobytrap" this time it's because one scene uses the last part of the song, and then when the scene changes it loops only the beginning of the song, which both have different moods! Some creative editing there.

This episode also uses "Robotech Love Theme I" for the first time in Robotech Masters; the last time we heard it was in "To the Stars," the final episode of The Macross Saga.
