The Legend of Zelda Theme Song on Wine Glasses, Pots and Beer Bottles
The Legend of Zelda theme song. Another one from the good old days of the NES, with more than just wine glasses, pots and pans. Latest addition: beer bottles!
The Legend of Zelda theme song, also known as the Overworld Theme, is a recurring song in the Legend of Zelda series. It serves as the main theme for most games in the series. It was composed by the now famous Koji Kondo for use in the original game, The Legend of Zelda. Originally, the song appeared as a simple 8-bit music track used whenever Link entered the game’s overworld. The song continued to appear in later games in the series, often being given re-instrumentation as computer game music technology developed. Since then, the song has grown in popularity and fame to become the official theme song for the franchise and among the most recognizable video game music of all time.
The Legend of Zelda theme song can be found in some form in every game in the series; whether used as the main theme, mixed in with another song, or having certain phrases briefly appear for cameo purposes. The Legend of Zelda theme song can also be heard outside of the series. It has appeared in Zelda-related games such as Soulcalibur II and the Super Smash Bros. series. The music has even been conducted in real life at full paying symphony orchestras.
