Ok, so there was a tiny bit of Zelda music discussion...literally like 2 or 3 lines of it...and it got me thinking that we should have a thread for our favourite video game songs.
I haven't really been here that long (considering) but I haven't noticed a thread like this one around so...here it comes!

I encourage you to embed the videos to the songs if you can find them! It'll make things more fun :)

I'll start things off with the song that was part of the discussion in the first place, and that is:

Song of Healing from Zelda: Majora's Mask!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDX4ZwUeOok

While I don't like the game all that much, this song could not be much better for something as simple as an ocarina song. It's simple, but the subtle singing in the background makes it much better than the average ocarina songs from both Majora's Mask/Ocarina of Time.


EDIT: More than one song is allowed if you like :)

Melodies of life (if that counts) will always be one of my favorite video game songs. Actually one of my favorite songs in general.

Firefly by Breaking Benjamin is my favorite song ever, and it was a part of the WWE Smackdown vs Raw soundtrack on PS2. I friggin love everything about that song.

Honestly that's it. I usually attach my own songs to video games. So I sometimes ignore the in game soundtrack.

Nice topic, Sir Sproutily Dude!

Other than the above theme, I felt this one was needed for an excellent thread:


Mother 3-Love Theme

This is absolutely beautiful, and fits the mood excellently.
It fits Claus's tragic death amazingly well. He committed suicide to help you save the world, and to be with Hinawa. To make the moment even sadder, Flint delivers this line while this music plays: "Claus was just hasty, that's all. You'll forgive your hasty brother, won't you?" I completely lost it, knowing that an innocent child like Claus had to go through this torture, and that almost every event in the game was caused by Hinawa's death. Utterly tragic, but beautiful theme.

I might as well say that you can have more than one song. I've added this to the OP too.

Here's another favourite of mine. It's also from Zelda, but from Twilight Princess this time around, and is the music played around Kakariko Village:

The pan flutes are pretty stunning, and really calm you down after you've been out exploring. There are loads more that I love from Twilight Princess...sod it, one more for you lot (Midna's Theme) :D

This one is much darker than most Zelda music, and it fits the character extremely well. Especially when she's "talking" and wacking you on the back :/

I absolutely LOVE the music in the Zelda series! Well, I love everything in the Zelda series, but still. Song of Healing is such a nice piece of music. However, I'm currently playing Twilight Princess on Wii and I really think that this game has the best music so far. :monster: Two pieces I like in particular are...

Hyrule Field Theme

And the amazing re-master/mix of the Goron's Theme!

The music on Zelda is the best in any videogame, I reckons. :)

But do you wanna know what the greatest Zelda song of all time is?


EDIT: I advise you turn your speakers down before listening, though. :monster:

I posted this in the shoutbox not so long ago in a fit of nostalgia. This seems like the perfect thread to jog some people's memories ;)

Time to chuck some more around here. Both are from the resi series this time.

The first one is Alexia Theme 1 from Code Veronica:

http://youtu.be/uR9DvZWF9MU


This song is from the last boss, and is so over-dramatic. In a good way. The operatic singing is pretty stunning.

My second is the ending credits song from resi zero:

http://youtu.be/24eUZbPVAWU


This one is slower, but is so good. It sorta changes quite a bit throughout the track, and that keeps things interesting. There's not a part that's boring throughout :griin:

I like most FF OSTs but I prefer the Chrono Trigger/Cross OSTs more. They're more dramatic, especially Chrono Cross OSTs. My favorites are Chrono Cross ~ Scars of Time ~ and the almighty Frog's epic theme song (Chrono Trigger). Whenever I hear this song, I feel like I can defeat anyone with my bare hands haha XD

Frog's theme (Chrono Trigger)
