Legend of Zelda theme should be Japan's anthem



Imagine watching the olympics and some Japanese gold winner is up there crying to the Zelda theme...

I know it'd tug on my heartstrings

It is Japan.  It would be the Dragon Quest fanfare theme.

blech.


double blech.

The dream was fun while it lasted.

The music for the D&D games was always good.

I've heard this about 1000 times the summer I discovered this game

Barely anyone played it since it was a mediocre game, but it had an absolutely fantastic soundtrack.

I LOVE opening themes. A great opening musical piece had often got me through a game or anime series I disliked. Visual Novel OPs are usually my favourite. Especially the sad sounding ones. Here's some of my favourites (that are safe for work)!

Visual Novels
Clannad Opening Theme - Meg Mell (Eufonius)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uI9fXifMYoY

ef-the first tale - Eternal Feather (Tenmon)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jj3vMRwTzDQ

Chaos;Head Theme - Find the Blue (Itou Kanako)
Warning: A bit of blood in this one. Nothing bad, just a heads up.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KD8FLiW_O8A

Little Busters! - Little Busters (Rita)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uI9fXifMYoY

Anime
A few years back I actually uploaded a top 10 favourite anime openings to YouTube. It's pretty out of date now, but here they are anyway:
#10-6
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YOXTq4Uaoc
#5-1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMvurzRn8AM

Games
I could link the opening of Persona 3 & 4, but we've all seen those anyway, right? :P Of stuff I recently played, I quite like the Tales of Vesperia opening.

And here's a last one... (warning, it's, uhhhh, very "cutesy"). Another Visual Novel OP.

How the hell did I forget about Chrono Cross? Great song for a great opening.

To the Baba Yetu haters: keep hatin'. Shit is hot no matter what you say.

Christopher Tin is currently nominated for not one but *two* grammy's. One for his CD "Calling All Dawns" (which is awesome: 12 songs, 12 different languages, totally solid musical ideas), and the other is for the live performance of Baba Yetu that VGL has been doing. That man is heroic.

(also, baba yetu's lyrics = the Lord's Prayer in Swahili)

My own contributions are very RPG-centric.

Liberi Fatali ~ FFVIII
Into the Wilderness ~ Wild Arms
Scars of Time ~ Chrono Cross
Angel's Fear ~ Secret of Mana
Twilight Illusion (or however you wanna translate it) ~ Atelier Iris Eternal Mana
Expressive/Singing Hill ~ Ar tonelico
Rondo of Light and Shadow ~ Lunar 2 (JP version prz)

That's a pretty good list right there. Not exhaustive, but totally awesome, yes.

Well, you could just copy and paste what Pat wrote in to YouTube! :) But I think most of us are too lazy. :P

It's about time you showed up, Pat! I was about to send you a message to ask for your input.

I KNEW I heard that Baba Yetu song before! It's on my video games live cd.

Another "duh" to me for forgetting the opening to FFVIII.

I like the Planescape: Torment music. I should really play that game.
