Friday Favorites: Ocarina of Time Songs

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday everyone!
On our Twitch channel, I started playing through The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on my solo streams. I adore the soundtrack of the game, especially with how much magic is part of the music. Today’s Friday Favorites is dedicated to the songs you learn in the game.
Friday Favorites: Ocarina of Time Songs | Legend of Zelda | Nintendo | Nintendo 64 | Video Games | Gaming |
Minuet of Forest
As one of the first songs you learn as adult Link, this song was always a little bittersweet to me. It starts with a high note but patters off like a memory. It’s fitting considering Link is returning to the place that is no longer his home.
Saria’s Song
This was the song that always got stuck in my head whenever we played this game, with its upbeat tempo. As kids, I always thought it Darunia’s dance when you played the tune was ridiculous!
Nocturne of Shadow
The Shadow Temple is one of the creepiest temples in Legend of Zelda history to me, but I adore the tune that goes with it. It’s a solemn song and a little ominous, warning you of whatever danger you’re about to face.
Song of Storms
I love the power that’s in this tune. Not only that, the origin of this song is so amusing to me. You learn the song as an adult from the man in the windmill, who learned it from you when you were a kid. The time loop is great!

  1. I’d say my two favorites are Gerudo Valley and the Forest Temple!

    • Oops, you’re talking the played songs. Silly me 😛 I would vote for Song of Storms as well!

      • I will not be picky about which songs you tell me are your favorites, lol. This game has such a good soundtrack that it would be awful to forget any! Definitely agree with the Gerudo Valley theme and the Forest Temple! 🙂 Have you heard Taylor Davis’s cover of Gerudo Valley? It’s one of our favorite renditions of it.

  2. Great picks! Nocturne of Shadows is definitely ominous, and I do love me some Minuet of Forest. 🙂 Personally, I’ve always loved Prelude of Light for some reason. It always seemed uplifting and helped me regroup if I found myself mired in despair in dark places like the Shadow Temple. Oh, and Song of Storms is pretty great, too! ^_^
