The Music of Legends

Zelda Informer: "Throughout the ages, music has influenced people all over the world in so many different ways. We've heard so many different kinds of music in so many different places that we've begun to associate different sounds with different stories, places, even emotions.

The same applies to the music of Zelda. You hear the simple guitar chords overlapped by a flute and violin, and you immediately think of the bright cel-shaded colors of Wind Waker's title screen. You hear the low, sad hum and the delicate piano on top, and you remember the lament of the people laced within the famous "Song of Healing." You hear the castanets bouncing across the dry air as guitars and trumpets tell you of the shimmering sand and the fiery sun in Gerudo Valley. You all remember these songs and these places. Koji Kondo and the franchise's other composers have magically made it impossible to separate the two, a fact much under-appreciated. So today, let us appreciate this magic and explore what makes some of the music of Zelda so fitting." (3DS, Nintendo DS, The Legend of Zelda, Wii, Wii U)

I have the entire zelda series soundtrack boxset. Sometimes I like to listen to music to help me sleep, so I like to play the orchestrated "Karako Village" theme song - usually it'll put me right to sleep. The funny thing is; I'll often dream that I'm wondering around Karako village, just watching the windmill spin around to the song of storms, chucking coocos and making small talk with the village residents...only, I never can understand what their saying!?

LoZ music is some of the best ever made in any genre....

Just started ST for first time and 2 hours in the soundtrack is awesome.

Spirit tracks was a good little game - the music, like you meantion, was good. Major'as Mask had the best imo - the Obserbatory music that played in the stargazing old mans...obserbatory..that was hauntingly beautiful.
