Musical Monday - Legend of Zelda overworld theme

The first game I ever rented was Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I chose it because it had a golden cartridge. (I was new to gaming and our Nintendo 64. Don't judge me)

It was amazing. I only managed to beat the first dungeon and I had fallen in love with the game. I preordered Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker specifically to be able to own a copy of Ocarina of Time.

Over time, I've played the other Legend of Zelda's. While (unfortunately) I've only beaten a few (I seem to have developed a mental block on beating games) I've grown to really like the music. And this piece is particularly awesome.

I know, 8 bit music but this really helps it get across. You just want to charge and fight and get to the next dungeon. I'm really glad it stuck with the series for so long (But for some reason, it wasn't in Ocarina of Time)

At some point I'll probably analyze music, but that's not for today or this piece. Just enjoy it!


  1. I was gaming for a year or two before it came out but the first game we ever rented was Zelda too. I mean, Zelda II. Man, I'm old.

    The music also did it for me, especially the Temple Theme. It made a huge impact on me and hearing it years later in Smash Brothers almost brought me to tears. It's a special game with a special place in me heart.

  2. 8 Bit Music is awesome!

    That aside, I cannot wait for the Legend of Zelda Symphony concerts. I hope I get the chance to go next year.
