FAVOURITE CLASSICAL FF TRACKS?

Posts

Pages: first 123 next last
So, if you could pick just THREE of your favourite tracks from the classic FFs ( FF1-FF6 ), what would they be? ( mind you, my favs only stem from IV and later ).

FFIV:

3. Mount Ordeals
2. Rydia's Theme
1. Toroian Beauty ( seriously, I can loop this track for hours )

FFV: ( not as memorable as the other FFs, but w/e )

3. The Dragon Spreads its Wings
2. Battle with Gilgamesh
1. My Home Sweet Home ( I listen to this when mapping my towns )

FFVI: This one was a tough nut to crack, but I finally whittled it down to just 3.

3. Coin Song
2. Phantom Forest
1. GAU's THEME! ( this track gives me freakin' goosebumps. It's one of the most beautiful FF melodies out there )
3. Mt. Koltz
2. Terra's Theme/Intro aka Journey to Narshe
1. Atma Battle

E:
oh jeez.... Forgot about Magitek Research Facility. That might be #3.
How dare you insinuate that Final Fantasy V doesn't have one of the best soundtracks in the series. It's so freaking groovy, man.

FF1

3. Battle Scene
2. Mt. Gulug
1. Main Theme

FF2

3. Castle Pandemonium
2. Rebel Army
1. Overworld Theme (This song is more melancholy and haunting than it has any right to be)

FF3

3. Forbidden Land of Eureka
2. Battle Theme
1. Dark World (This is actually one of my favourite 8-Bit/RPG themes of all time)

FF4

3. Main Theme
2. Red Wings (I use this a LOT for brainstorming when I need to think of cinematic stuff)
1. Land of Dwarves

FF5

3. Fate in Haze
2. Prelude to the Void (This is also a very good boon to brainstorming for me, mostly for environment or atmosphere design)
1. The Decisive Battle (Those FUCKING drums)

FF6

3. Kefka's Tower
2. Awakening
1. Omen

I could probably write a top ten for 4-10, but I'll stay within the limits of the thread.
Off the top of my head:

IV:
Boss Battle Theme
Mount Ordeals
Theme of Love

V:
The Final Battle (actually beats out Big Bridge for me!)
Home Sweet Home
Main Theme

VI:
Terra
Dancing Mad
Kefka's Tower

Those Other 3!
Battle Theme (FFI)
Magician's Tower (FFII - haven't played this game much but the song is cool~)
Eternal Wind (FFIII)

FFV: Mamba de Chocobo

FFVI:

Terra's Theme
The Spinach Rag
Mog
Techno de Chocobo

I don't think I could recall a single memorable tune from FF5...


E:
yeah, had to check out a youtube vid of the OST. And nothing really made an impression on me. It feels like... he just lazily made a sequel to FF4's soundtrack, and never really pushed any new boundries or explored any new sounds or melodies. Like, just polished off some scraps and leftovers and outtakes from his work on FF4 and called it a soundtrack for FF5

Also if we are including FFVII:

3. Prelude (I've always felt it had the best version of this tune. FFIV a close runner up)
2. Red XIII's theme
1. Airship theme
LouisCyphre
can't make a bad game if you don't finish any games
4523
I:
Matoya's Cave
Airship Theme (without the propeller sound, at least)
Chaos Shrine (Bonus!)

II:
Main Theme
Pandemonium
Gave Over

III:
Battle Scene 2
Crystal Tower
Main Theme

V:
Battle Scene 2

I really like V's music, Pizza! ;w;

Actually I probably like it more than 4's, but I also like V more overall...

speaking of FFIV

3. Decisive Fight/boss fight
2. Chocobo, Chocobo
1. Main theme/Overworld
I dunno msn, I think 5 has the third best soundtrack in the series, next to 6 and 7. 4's soundtrack is cool but it always sounded a little flat to me. I think that 5 is where Uematsu really started to take off with his FF work, and I really admire the use of the bass, drums and fades in the songs.

battle on the big bridge???????????????

can't give you three but I really like the theme that plays in the baron castle from IV + the world map theme, and both celes's and terra's themes and in my top favs.

the original ff's battle theme is also pretty badass.
Oh man, I haven't played any of these "classic" Final Fantasy games, so... I can probably narrow my list down to just three songs total... XD

Battle on the Big Bridge
Terra's Theme
The Red Wings

Oh!
The Four Fiends
I
Temple of Chaos
Undersea Shrine
Save Music

II
The Rebel Army
Pandemonium Castle

III
Town of Ur
Boss Battle
Dark World

IV can't pick only 3:
Kingdom Baron
Into the Darkness
Boss Battle
Airship
The Big Whale
Within the Giant
The Final Battle

V
Fate in Haze
Tenderness in the Air (Town)
Beyond the Deep Blue Sea

VI
Honestly, pretty much the whole soundtrack.

7, 8 and X also have a huge amount of excellent tracks.
I like the bass line in the FF4 battle music, the normal battle I think.

And I fucking hate the choboco theme.
