When I'm not writing video game news, I'm a part-time musician, and
recently joined up with a new band that's forming on the East Coast; a
band that will play only metal, and only music inspired by the Zelda
series. This meant that I had to go back through all the old games and
look through the music, sit down, and really think about which songs
from Zelda are... well... the best—the ones that are truly good songs.
is hard for me, because as most of you likely know, there are a lot of
emotions wrapped up with each and every single song in the Zelda series,
memories of long nights and entire weekends spent with a controller in
hand, lost in the land of Hyrule. I have a hard time completely
divorcing myself from those emotions and viewing the music completely objectively, but that's what I've attempted to do in this article.
So I've narrowed down the entire list of Zelda songs to three entries; and I'm certain you will have your own opinions, but these are mine.
