What is your favorite song that comes from a Video Game? May it be with words or without, the theme song or not, which is it?

There are a few that come to mind for me.
- Simple and Clean from Kingdom Hearts by Utada Hikaru (THis has opened me to Hikaru's world, with all her *** songs that I wuv so much)
- Sigh of the Wind from Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles by _______ (not sure) (I love this song so much, but it's hard to find it. In fact, all FF:CC music is awsome!)

I love all the FF music... so simply put:

FF: All.
Pokemon: Battle Music

That is pretty much all I can come up with for now...

Ah, I love game music discussions ^^...

When it comes to game themes, Kingdom Heart's "Hikari/Simple and Clean" and Sonic Adventure's "It Doesn't Matter" take my top billing.
Other songs from the Sonic Adventure and Heroes games are also close favs of mine.

As for other game music...Got quite a few favs, but here's just a few:

All songs from Sonic R
Protoman's theme- MM Power Fighters
One-Winged Angel- FF VII
Forze de Male- Kingdom Hearts
Brinstar theme- Metroid series
Flying Battery, Lava Reef, Sky Sanctuary, and boss themes- Sonic & Knuckles

Oh yeah - I remember the song. "Simple and Clean" I believe...

A great song undoubtably...

Wait, KH stands for Kingdom Hearts riiight? Because someone posted about "Simple and Clean" on the top of the page!

08-22-2004, 07:37 AM

That is it then! I wasn't sure :sweat: I gotta go 'find' it.

:downloads song:

Well, you could also try to track down the original soundrack (it's actually pretty easy to find, it seems; lots of music stores seem to carry it)...Well, if you really want to put down $30 on a soundtrack (it's a 2-disc set) XP...

But if you just want "Simple and Clean", then I wouldn't recommend it <_<;

Yay! Someone else who likes the Sky Sanctuary music X3

I swear, the first time I heard that tune, I was almost blown away. Just hearing the music, and looking out at the background, with the Death Egg emerging from the clouds...The only thing in my mind was "Whoa...."

08-28-2004, 08:36 AM
I love the theme song from Tales of Symphonia

I love the theme song from Tales of Symphonia



XD... :then dies:

That game'd make such a great anime!

And you'd be happy to know that 2 of the Tales games HAVE manga (Tales of destiny and Tales of Eternia...both the most recent, just before ToS). So yeah, ToS manga/anime is quite possible.

Now at this point, I'd like to go murder Garr, Meredy, and Farah (they all from Tales of Eternia) in that exhibition match now. lol

08-30-2004, 04:19 AM
Kenny, any idea if the TOP anime is released/subbed yet? I remember reading about it coming out and watchign a trailer of it on the TOP PSX translations forum (forgot link)...

Matt & Vulpix
08-30-2004, 03:27 PM
They are making an OAV (or whatever that is) for Tales of Phantasia.... they had a topic like that at Gamefaqs.com 's TOP board.

08-30-2004, 03:41 PM
I'm not actually sure on anything with ToP (SNES translation PWNS the PSX version! lol) and its anime/manga, so that's why I didn't SAY anything about it. *sigh*

o btw, did namco deny or confirm whether ToS is the prequel of ToP yet?

Matt & Vulpix
08-31-2004, 12:16 AM
I think they deny it. They say its two different worlds... but then again, I've only played the latter so how should I know?

What is TOS/E/D?

09-01-2004, 06:43 AM
Those would be video games... RPGs... very fun ones actually :P... what system is ToE/D for, if they are for a console... and I'm gonna play Tales of Phantasia after I am finished with Symphonia.

Matt & Vulpix
09-01-2004, 04:53 PM
Tales of Eternia and Destiny are for PSX, except they were never ported to English (either).

09-02-2004, 12:21 AM
XD... blah... that bites :'( That woulda been nice if they had :'(...

I would like to download the OST for Symphonia... maybe I'll try looking it up later...

09-02-2004, 01:25 AM
Fav. songs (by system)

Sega Genises-
Sonic the Hedgehog 2- Metropolis (catchy tune -.-)

Yoshi's Island - "Make Eggs, Throw Eggs" level music (also catchy)
super Mario RPG- Smithy Battle, first fight (same reason)

Harvest Moon- Summer

Gamecube- (dum dum da DA....)
SA2B- Live and Learn, It doesn't matter, City Escape, Green forest, Cosmic Wall, Pyrimid cave

Sonic Heroes- This Machine (-.- so cool), What I'm made of, Main Theme, and Team Chaotix is ok...

Animal Crossing- Rainy Day (and all the other songs based off of that one), Main theme, The one it plays when you're loading your game...

Sonic Adventure DX (Sonic Adventure)- Tail's theme... they ruined it in the second one...

Pokemon Colluseum- The one battle theme it plays when you fight the one guy with the Zigzagoon, also battles 1-10 in the Mt. Battle thingy

GBA- *fanfare*

Fire Emblem- Wow. Pretty much all of them. Especially "Loyalty: Hector's Theme" and "Precious Things"...

(will edit if more come to mind)

www.vgmusic.com is a good place for MIDIs of these... 'sept the tails one... that's not there...

09-02-2004, 05:07 AM
Tail's theme... they ruined it in the second one...

Heheh. You mean the second one as, "Believe in Myself"?

Yeah, that song was baaad. :tongue:

This Machine (-.- so cool), What I'm made of

Uhh, don't you mean:

This Machine, What I'm made of (-.- so cool) :tongue:

I'm just playing.

Yeah, vgmusic is a pretty good place for game music, just as long as they're arent with lyrics, but they don't like directly ripped songs for some reason, I prefer the one on the music than one self-composed (nof offense to any MIDI composers) :tongue2:

09-02-2004, 03:42 PM
Yeah, while SA2's rendition of "Believe in Myself" wasn't too bad, it pales in comparison to the soul of the original version. You really did get a sense of Tails' feelings from it. Kinda gave you that feel-good feeling when it was playing during his ending cut-scene of the first SA ^^

While I have yet to listen to the full version of "What I'm Made Of" (darn you, Chaos Emeralds!! >_<), I really did like "This Machine", as well as "Team Chaotix". Frankly, Teams Dark and Chaotix seem to have gotten the better theme songs for Sonic Heroes... I was a bit disappointed that Crush 40 didn't do Team Sonic's theme (I really thought they would....kinda almost tradition XP)

Oh, also, "Unknown from M.E." (Knuckles' theme) from SA2 was very good, a vast improvement over the original version.
