SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - Legendary Edition

Being my favorite video game series, The Legend of Zelda takes center stage on SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs. The first week we will be listening to the 2D installments whereas next week we will be hearing music from the 3D installments.

V271. The Legend of Zelda - Main Theme

Our next game series is the legendary Legend of Zelda franchise. I don't know any other way to kick things off by playing the main theme of the series. Not just one version-- but four!

We have the Smash Bros. Brawl version which is followed by the Smash Bros. Melee, A Link to the Past, and finally the Hyrule Symphony versions.

V272. The Legend of Zelda - Underworld

The dungeon theme of the very first Legend of Zelda game, the one that started it all. The first game with a battery pack included for saving your data without the hassle of passwords. Not my favorite Zelda by any means, but it's still a fantastic game.

V273 - The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - Dark World

This song comes from one of my top 10 favorite games of all time, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for the Super Nintendo. It's the theme used as Link ventures through the unforgiving Dark World. Released in 1991, A Link to the Past is still an epitome of great game design even after 18 years.

V274 - The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening - Tal Tal Heights

Where do you personally sit with this title-- The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening? Everyone has their personal favorite Zelda title, and this is a popular to choose alongside A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time. Tal Tal Heights is still a song that pumps me into a Octorok-slaying mood. Not too shabby for a song playing with the Game Boy's primitive speakers to do that, huh?

V275. The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap - Minish Village

This tune plays in the quaint Minish village where the Minish people, a microscopic race of magical creatures dwell and call home. The Minish Cap may not have had eighty-thousand dungeons, but it was a remarkable and enjoyable title from beginning to end. A fantastic game.

Feel free to leave back any form of constructive feedback. Next week Zelda plays on with Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess. Stick around!
