The Top Ten

1 Ocarina of Time: Song of Storms

This song has stayed with me when I was young and even to this day it is my favorite. The combination of the mystery and somehow sorrowfulness in the song is amazing. It gives an aura of being stuck in time, but somehow it is warm and inviting.

A song that truly relaxes and makes you think of all the adventure that you have gone through. This song sounds really great on the ocarina, definitely my first favorite. I do love hearing the song of time too though :D - Globox

For some reason, this little medley is one of the most renown songs of the Zelda franchise. Catchy and enjoyable, it is one of the first songs that comes to mind when thinking of Zelda. - ScarTissue

so good

2 Twilight Princess: Midna's Lament

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

This song is so hauntingly beautiful. It creates a dark, gloomy atmosphere, which, coupled with the lovely graphics, leaves a lasting impression. Truly one of the best Legend of Zelda songs ever.

This song is beautiful. I become happy, but also sad whenever I hear it. It also fits perfectly for the amazing part of the game that it's featured in.

Mind is my favorite side character from the franchise, and this song reminds me of her. Also, the song is very beautiful and serene in a bizzare way.

3 Ocarina of Time: Lost Woods

This song holds its own musically, largely using its main unique and extremely catchy hook. It is also used effectively in the game in several different settings, and fits well in all of them. Plus, it just makes you want to dance. Lost Woods was definitely the song I played the most on Ocarina of Time.

Yes I very much agree with you finally someone understands how catchy this music is it so just I love it every time it starts playing I start dancing finally someone understands! I'm so happy!

This fantastic song made wandering around that annoyingly illogical forest completely worth it! - ScarTissue

Nostalgia bomb

4 Ocarina of Time: Gerudo Valley

How can this not be in the top three? This song is one of the best I have heard in my life. The uplifting sound of it sounds like "you're entering a new place called Gerudo Fortress, it's really dangerous". It also sounds so awesome, I don't know how to describe it. The use of the guitar in it is very well done, along with the beats and everything else. NA NA NA, NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA! If you don't know this song, you've got to listen to it!

This fast-paced, catchy melody is well recognized both for its liveliness and its perfect representation of the dusty valley. - ScarTissue

Easily the best song in the Legend of Zelda franchise. The tune is so catchy, upbeat, and memorable, and this is one of those songs that really sticks with you.

BEST. SONG. EVER.

5 Majora's Mask: Song of Healing

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

I voted Song of Storms, but I had to post a comment for this because it is just so... Good. It actually makes me feel like I am getting healed!

Majoras mask was a very depressing at times. Your always escaping a terrible death and the npcs are all saying that its no use to be with your family. This song heals the hearts of people and it is a song you can't forget.

This is iconic and beautiful. enough said

6 Wind Waker: Dragon Roost Island

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

I love this one so much! I know how to play it on flute, listen to tons of versions of it, and I literally cried when I heard it at symphony of the goddesses

I would come to this place just to listen to the song, enough said

This song is so awesome. I love it. I stay forever on dragon roost island to hear this.

7 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.

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.

I like the other version best, whenever I hear it, I stop what I'mean doing to listen.

8 Legend of Zelda: Title Theme

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.

Amazing theme for a video game! It makes you think about adventure and going on a journey travelling to places you gave never been before! I think this should be #1!

This classic melody is one of the most recognized themes in video-game history. - ScarTissue

This is the song of the hero

9 Skyward Sword: Ballad of the Goddess

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...

I think it is amazing how much thought goes into these songs. The songs that puts her to sleep n OoT reversed awakens her as the goddess in SS.

I love the 25th anniversary version

Incredible song to go with an incredible game
The fact that its Zelda's Lullaby reversed is an added bonus

10 Link to the Past: Dark World

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

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

This is by far the sickest song in the Zelda series it may sound old but it has good theme

Fun, adventurous music

The Contenders

11 Majora's Mask: Final Hours

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.

The perfect way to show your final hours.

12 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.

13 Wind Waker: Title Theme

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.

Uplifting

14 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

15 Wind Waker: Great Sea

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

16 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'

17 Wind Waker: Molgera Theme

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...

18 Link to the Past: Kakariko Village

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

19 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

20 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
