Whether farming for EXP or loot or wandering lost on the overworld screen, it is inescapable that at least somewhere down the road a Final Fantasy song will become permanently lodged in your head. Here to put that recall through somewhat of a test is the Christmas 2020 edition of the Final Fantasy Soundtrack Contest! Take a trip down memory lane and experience the nostalgia (or be triggered - depending 🤷‍♀️) - either way, enjoy the journey :smartass:

For anyone still looking to try their hand (or ears rather) at this event, submissions are open until the end of Sunday 27th December. Participants are pretty much guaranteed rewards for their efforts so be sure to take advantage of this easy opportunity to gain some EXP :P

I'm working on it, but my brain refuses to cooperate with me and the 2nd song continues to elude me. Will submit an entry once I've given my noggin a good whack with the butt of a hammer and when I'm more confident with what I have.

Ditto.

I'll be submitting my answers tonight, hopefully. In case I don't get chance to complete it tonight, by noon tomorrow I should be ready.

:O Congrats you guys! Glad we all mostly got the same song wrong 😂

Gal I loved the little Moogles on the video, it was soooo cute!

And I'd love to accept a 9/10 but I technically got two wrong 😅 🤫
Not sure if it affects the final score or not!

Thank you so much, and thanks for participating!
I count the soundtrack name and FF game title separately as half points, so although you got two track names incorrect you had the correct game title so it ends up as only being one mark lost over all! So you can accept the 9/10 points with a clear conscious!

I second what Miko said. I love the production value you put into the video and I also adore the performing Moogles, haha.

Wooo! Triple 9/10s! Go, team!

And yeah, I THOUGHT Number 2 was familiar, but having only played the PS2 release of FFX-2, it's now apparent that I'm not familiar at all with the track and that I had merely fooled myself into believing it was. :lew:

Bouncing Bunnies is a better song title. Just saying! :argor:

I'm okay with getting a FFX-2 song wrong. Liv, on the other hand, must surely be fuming.


EDIT - Oh it is from a sequel/DLC to FFX-2 of sorts.

Bouncing Bunnies should be the soundtrack for the next FFXIV Easter event - roll over Papaya!

The FFX-2 one was a bit of a curve ball but it sounded all Christmassy so I just had to add it in!
