Best Legend of Zelda Songs

The Best Zelda Songs throughout the game's 25-year history!

The Top Ten

1 Ocarina of Time: Song of Storms

Ocarina of Time's soundtrack is easily the best out of all the zelda soundtracks, and Song of Storms is the best of the songs in it. The song is even a major part of the storyline.

Will and Tim remix

I love this song. It gives me chills but it is catchy

Love this song...so much nostalgia.

2 Twilight Princess: Midna's Lament

WHy IsN't ThIs NuMbEr uNo?

The piano is amazing

Easily the worst part of the game is when this song is playing, you run past a bulblin and it changes to enemy music

This game was so amazingly creepy. The graphics were great, as well as the music and sounds. The story quest in all was awesome as well with the different things you had to do before the end. Truly a great game

3 Ocarina of Time: Lost Woods

When I think of Zelda I think of this song.

IT'S BETTER THAN ALL OF THE OTHERS COMBINED.

This song is unique, and so different. I love it

4 Ocarina of Time: Zelda's Lullaby

This is one of the most recognizable songs from the Zelda series, and by far one of my favorites! I learned to play this one on the flute along with several other songs from the series.

Makes me want to sleep, so relaxing.

This song is so nostalgic for me, and is such a beautiful song. Every time I hear it, I can't help but hum along

This song is just calming and relaxing. You can listen to it for hours on end.

5 Ocarina of Time: Gerudo Valley

Great beat and very fast-paced and cool. Love this one

I just love this song. It reminds me of my childhood: playing Zelda and not having anything to worry.

This is da best

Regardless the occasion, this song will and always will blow my mind

6 Majora's Mask: Song of Healing

This song and it whole context... this really heals your soul

This is a song with some mixed feelings.

This song gives the listener with a sense of distress, sadness, and strangely, tranquility. It's a song that sends shivers down your spine, yet numbs you into a weird, soothing trance.

This one is so eerily calm, it's remarkable. Sure, Song of Storms is a classic, but Song of Healing is too beautiful to not adore. - Mewbosses

7 Wind Waker: Dragon Roost Island

This and Song of storms are the two best, but for me I think Dragon Roost Island just edges it out

hell yeah

Amazing song from an amazing game.

This song is the reason your power bill is so high because you let link stand for hours on dragon roost beach just to listen, before you found out about internet

8 Skyward Sword: Ballad of the Goddess

Empowering

Best song ever made

Propulsive and powerful

There are times where I forget how much I enjoyed Skyward Sword but when I listen to this song it brings back fun memories. I just wish this was higher on the list...

9 Legend of Zelda: Title Theme

Oh my this is the best one here

How is it 9? HOW THE HELL IS IT 9? - MarioBros11

This needs to be number 1

When I hear the main theme on the title screen, I simply think "rising hero" and it relaxes me. This theme song can't be overlooked, even though it isn't.

10 Link to the Past: Dark World

Gives exactly the feeling it should. A masterpiece of 16-bit composing.

This dark, yet adventurous theme set the perfect mood for that dark and mysterious world. - ScarTissue

Best song in the franchise. Adventurous and exciting while remaining subtle and mysterious. A winning combination.

Best zelda theme... that feel... It gives you hope that you can defeat Ganon... Dark and uplifting

The Contenders

11 Majora's Mask: Final Hours

Teah this is good

When the world is ending, I will stand in the middle of the street with this music playing.

I set this as an alarm on my phone the other day, and when it went off I was like "OH MY GOD THE MOON IS FALLING! "

This song is very depressing but great at the same time. That's not something you get every day. I just like to play the Song of Double time and get to the last six hours then go the the Great Bay's coast where I have a good view of the moon and just listen.

12 Spirit Tracks: Overworld Adventure

Seriously this is one of the best versions of the Overworld theme to the Legend of Zelda. The pan flute is just brilliant and beautiful in this music had me tapping my toes every time I drove the Spirit Train

My all time favorite overworld theme, it is just so catchy and gets stuck in my head (in a good way! ) It perfectly captures the game, from the use of pan flutes to the way it incorporated the train sounds. It makes me happy every time I hear it, and I enjoy pulling my train whistle in time to it. TOOT TOOT!

I think that this song is underrated, it has such a great sound with that panflute

I love this song! It's so energetic and adventrous!

13 Wind Waker: Great Sea

Very good - MarioBros11

Exciting and heartwarming. I get nostalgic whenever I hear it. should be in the top ten of this list!

This is my favorite Zelda song. It perfectly gives the impression of a vast ocean to explore and serves as the back drop to my favorite Zelda game of all time.

Very fitting of an ocean adventure

14 Twilight Princess: Blizzeta Theme

One of the best crescendos in Zelda music history, and the unique moment in the game (one of the most memorable of Twilight Princess) would not have been the same without this darkly haunting choral chanting.

Best song ever especially part 2

I liked both parts.

15 Wind Waker: Molgera Theme

Should be too 10 at least! I think we can get rid of one of the five ocerina of time, (I'm sorry, four) songs and put this on here, even if those other songs are good.

I love this catchy theme, for anyone who hasn't heard it, listen to it.

I love the amount of hype and rhythm it's got! CHICKACHICKACHICKA...

16 Link to the Past: Kakariko Village

This calm, homely song was the first song in many a Zelda game. - ScarTissue

Classic

17 Wind Waker: Title Theme

Um, I would call it Makar's Song, but yeah - MarioBros11

Damn, this song makes me cry every single time. It really reflects the adventurous, yet still childlike feel of Wind Waker, an incredibly underrated game. I'll be playing this song to my children as a lullaby when I have kids. It is my favorite Zelda song of all time!

Such a beautiful theme, and truly captures the spirit of the game. It is so catchy, adventurous, and I sing along to it every time I hear it

Honesty I find the title theme kind of annoying after 3 seconds. It's not that it's bad but I just don't understand why people like this song so much.

18 Ocarina of Time: Main Theme

Its Just So Peaceful

19 Ocarina of Time: Kokiri Forest

One of the very first songs I hear in this game and its chirpy tune, always makes me be happy

20 Ocarina of Time: Boss Theme
21 Skyward Sword: Fi's Theme
22 Majora's Mask: Stone Tower Theme

Honestly, I don't know what to say. Just wow. This and Gerudo Valley are my two favorite Zelda songs (although I love SO MANY others too). It's just so unique and catchy, and I'm trying to think of the right adjective to describe it but I just can't describe it. It really gives off an amazing feeling. Any remix of this song is great too.

This music is unique... I just love it. It's like some civilization used to travel here a lot but now they've turned killers almost a little bit of sadness in the tone.

It feels like you're in some temple - Lord28

It's so mysterious. It's creepy and angelic and very fantasy-eque and it's just plain awesome. The percussion part is something I'll never forget.

23 Skyward Sword: Skyward Sword Theme
24 Twilight Princess: Hyrule Field

Just makes you look around you and realize the majesty of Hyrule. Especially on my surround sound setup, it sounds amazing. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

Very enjoyable music for you long trips through this field

Not the greatest, but it's still too low!

Best Hyrule Field theme!

26 Wind Waker: Ocean Theme

Already on here as great sea - MarioBros11

27 Twilight Princess: Queen Rutela's Theme

I love it, it's my favorite Zelda song EVER!

28 Link's Awakening: Ballad of the Wind Fish

I love this song because I incorporates all of the transformations

29 Ocarina of Time: Epona's Song

This should be #1

30 Majora's Mask: Astral Observatory

Peaceful, introspective, and melancholy

As it plays in a room where an old astronomer watches as the moon inches its way toward the destruction of his world, this tune is representative of the peace of academia despite the imminent end.

A soft and yet wonderful tune, signifying the wonder and awe of the stars.

Love this

31 Link to the Past: Hyrule Castle

I don't know how this song isn't higher. Has anyone even listened to this?

Best

32 Majora's Mask: Clock Town Theme

This song is just catchy, beautiful, and nice. It really is a bright ray of sunshine in an otherwise gloomy, but wonderful, game.

Really catchy and fun song, it just makes you feel happy and want to dance.

'Brings so much emotion when you hear it'

On the final day it’s way different.

33 Zelda II: Temple/Palace Theme

Easily in my Top 5. Such a masterpiece. - ItsLeAshton

Imagine this with the technology of today!

People must haven’t played this game or it would be at the top for sure!

34 Ocarina of Time: Forest Temple

It's enchanting music always has had such an intriguing, mysterious, yet beautiful sound that never gets old and makes you want to play through the dungeon over and over.

The temples theme is just plain amazing... Spirit temple is great aswel

35 Link's Awakening: Tal Tal Heights

This is such a fun song, it should be higher on the list

36 Ocarina of Time: Spirit Temple

This is an awesome song it makes you feel like your in Egypt

37 Skyward Sword: Fi's Gratitude

This song is one of the most emotionally powerful songs in the Legend of Zelda, and makes me nostalgic every time I hear it. I could listen to it all day!

This track is just so powerful. It shows the emotion having to say goodbye to someone dear to you perfectly

Listening to it right now, and loving it!

This emotional song is amazing. I loved the progression through the game. It started very mysterious, when you first meet fi, then it playshould itsar normal version as she dances on the water, and then this one, when she says goodbye

38 Ocarina of Time: Hyrule Field

Not really - Marxcute19

39 Skyward Sword: Fi's Farewell

This song is so pretty

This song is so meaningful. After all your adventures with her and her annoying calls, you realize she was your only friend. And now she's leaving.

It's so emotional. Even though I hated Fi as a character because of how annoying she was, this song helped me see past that. Now every time I play other Zelda Games and see the master sword gleaming, I know that Fi is there to aid me in battle. Pity that they don't play this music when getting the master sword

It's so beautiful I can't stop sining it. I definitely think it's the saddest Zelda song ever and the most beautiful

40 The Wind Waker: Intro

Already on here - MarioBros11

The title theme is fun

This song is the bomb!

41 Link to the Past: Battle with Ganon
42 Majora's Mask: Oath to Order

Gives me chills every time I hear it. This was my second favorite song in Majora's right behind Song of Healing and it is probably my third favorite LoZ tune.

This is an amazing piece. It always makes my hair stand on end.

Why isn't this on the list?!?!?! In relation to current events, the idea of this song is to restore hope and balance to the world. ( Calling the giants theme)

So sad. So beautiful.

43 Oracle of Ages: Nayru's Theme

... This song is sad, hopeful and haunting all at the same time.

44 Majora's Mask: Deku Palace

My Favourite!
There's nothing better than getting high while listening to this song.

Catchy

45 Twilight Princess: Ganondorf Battle

One of the most epic ganondorf battles. Perfect track to go along with it, epic, dark, and fits the twilight princess theme well. Love the battle too. The most epic thing is the fact that we’re not doing an insane battle with artillery, divine beasts, godly powers, or magic, it’s just two men, two swords, one common goal. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

46 Ocarina of Time - Title Theme
47 Majora's Mask: Milk Bar

Best

48 Boss Theme: A Link to the Past
49 Oracle of Seasons: Dancing Dragon Dungeon
50 Minish Cap: Minish Woods

This is so underrated! I love it
Dragon roost island is better though
