Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past has one of if not the best video game soundtrack. Its updated Overworld theme is just awesome and although maybe a something heard many times before, you can now download it for free, although there is one cost which isn’t monetary. Fansite Zeldainformer (via Destructoid) managed to acquire A Link to the Past’s soundtrack by ripping it from the original game, leaving 31 individual soundbytes of loveliness. But of course here’s where the cost comes in; ripping video games is bad so their souls are now lost. But hey, we didn’t do it so it’s fine for us to download the pack right!?
If you prefer a more classical take instead of the retro SNES beats then check out Zelda Reorchestrated. They take the music of Zelda and give it an orchestral once over making some rather beautiful music. So much so, I actually persuaded my wife to have the Zelda medley play in the church at our wedding. Truly awesome!
