The Legend of Zelda boasts some of gaming's best music

It is no exaggeration to say that video game music is some of the best music in the world.

From the light-hearted adventurousness of Super Mario Bros.’ “Overworld” to the rockin’ riffs of Command & Conquer: Red Alert; from the ominous guitars of Diablo’s “Tristram Village” to the grand majesty of the Legend of Zelda theme, these are anthems to heroism, danger, valor, fun, vengeance, sacrifice, darkness, justice, and everything worth composing a masterpiece about. And because these are the soundtracks to some of the biggest tales in fiction, they are as emotionally powerful as they are a pleasure to the ears.

And for the gamers among us, these were the melodies of childhood. As we saved princesses, snuck our way around guards, fought giant mechas, slayed gods and demons, and retrieved priceless artifacts, these were the songs that accompanied every adventure, every quest. They’ve lifted our spirits when we were down, gave us the courage to meet challenges, and instilled in us a little of the heroism of our most beloved video game heroes.

The cultural significance and emotional impact of video game music cannot be understated. And for these reasons we think Video Games Live, with its dedication to promoting these wondrous melodies worldwide, is the greatest video game music concert today.
