Greatest song in a video game.

    OVGD I want to know what is the greatest song that you have ever heard in a video game. Please include the title of the game it is from, the title of the song, name of the band, a link to the song or a sample, and reason why you like it.

    Personally I love the opening from Macross VF-X2 for PlayStation.

    The song is called Get Free by Humming Bird


    I like it because is reminds me of classic 80's rock music and I always think Queen could have done an amazing English version of the song.

    ^That's actually a pretty badass song.

    Now when you said "name of the band" I got a little confused. Do you want people to say their favourite song that is background music like Gerudo Desert or The Super Mario Bros. theme or something from Shadow of the Colossus or Final Fantasy? Or do you want the kind of songs that have a beginning and end that don't loop and have lyrics?

    Instrumental version of "Mad World" by Gary Jules in Gears of War 3.


    The cut-scene it is part of is already moving but when "Mad World" starts it just hits another emotional level.

    I should have worded that better name of the artist how plays the song or wrote the song I can't think of a good word that uses a broad enough meaning.

    The Halo 1 Theme!! It sets the tone of the game so well. Or Cynthia's Theme in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl I'm not quite sure if it's in Platinum though.

    So any songs go? Alright time to bust out the old list that I use in every "best video game music" thread.

    And I'll add some Dark Souls for good measure.
    Dark Souls - Taurus Demon
    Dark Souls - Ornstein & Smough
    Dark Souls - Great Grey Wolf Sif
    Dark Souls - Gwyn, Lord of Cinder

    My all time favourite out of all these is The Legend of Zelda's Overworld Theme used throughout the series. A Link to the Past probably has the best rendition.

    If it's by an orchestra, I usually love it.

    It's a long song, though mainly because different parts of the song play depending on how drawn-out and/or how close a match is. Pretty much the music become more epic later on in a long, neck-to-neck battle.

    Cometstarlight What do I do now?

    Let's see, oh gosh, tons of Zelda and Kingdom Heart songs incoming:

    I never played Ocarina of Time, but I still love the music from what I've heard.
    Twilight Princess has some awesome soundtracks
    Midna's Lament, Midna's theme, Hyrule field theme, Sacred Grove (Lost Woods), Temple of Time (beginning, not the dungeon theme), Stallord, and others I can't think of at the moment.

    Skyward Sword: Almost all of the songs XD I loved them

    Kingdom Hearts II: I don't even know what all the songs are called since they have cryptic names lol but I love Sanctuary, Simple and Clean, Dearly Beloved, Rage Awakened, Fate of the Unknown, and Oh my gosh, I just love that series XD I feel like I'm fangirling all over the place LOL

    Yup. It was during the final boss, when you fight Neptune in the Krusty Krab.

    The opening song from Tekken 5 - Sparking.

    Maybe it's just me, but the final boss from the game and the actual Goofy Goober Rock are distinctly different.
