Hello all !

As i'm slowly discovering the FF soundtracks, i'd like to have your opinion on what are the most emotional themes you've heard (instrumental / piano) ?

Here are some of my personal favorites (in no particular order) :

Main theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=195QtkOJCYg) It always gives me goose bumps.
FF7 World map theme 1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hC_KQi7Gp5Q)
Rebel Army's Theme (FF2) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=siP0syXBde4)
To Zanarkand (FF10) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0pj-Bhvvzk)
Moonlight Wandering(Crisis Core : FF7) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OjDgokYgy8)

Keep in mind that from a musical standpoint they might not be the best, after all I'm a bit biased from having played those game and having good memories associated with those songs.

What about you what are your favorites theme ?

Lately, it's this sad and haunting theme from FFXIV (original version):

Final Fantasy XIV OST ~ Track 51 - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6AD5KEbF6E)

The actual title for it is unknown sadly, but it known that it was composed by Nobuo Uematsu (amongst other things it played when the player selected their Path Companion during the main scenario of the game). And given the fact FFXIV has been shutdown, I can't help but feel sad when I hear this. :(

EDIT: it's called Piece of Mind (sic) and it's track number 43 on the Before Meteor: FFXIV OST album.

FFIX You're Not Alone has always been a favorite. Here are two versions: In game (OST) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YI5fD7Jbnuw) and orchestrated (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXlE8ZESSEI).

My two absolute favourites are To Zanarkand (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKyvAjoIvAI) from FFX and The Last Travel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5w0iCWmm3hI)from XIII-2. I think they're both beautiful, sad songs.

My favorite would be Distant Worlds. Final Fantasy XI - Chains of Promathia. As far as I am concerned, nothing beats this. Terra Final Fantasy VI Piano Collections - Terra/Tina - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ED66swL2gtE) Comes real close.

Sample: FF - Distant Worlds - Piano - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=IOupXUxluF0) Distant Worlds.

I played Final Fantasy III on the DS years ago and the intro theme has stuck with me since then. It's very memorable. Memory of the Wind ~Legend of the Eternal Wind~ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Kd8qdly2io)
