The Wind Waker is one of the many games in The Legend of Zelda series that has excellent music. The Wind Waker went in a slightly different direction to previous games, but the direction that it went was just a perfect choice that fit so well with the series’ legacy.

Dragon Roost Island

Such an awesome track, Dragon Roost Island is one of the most memorable and upbeat tracks in the entire game. Dragon Roost Island is a big location, that is engrossed in the Volcano based in the centre of the island. It is one of the major locations in the game and this tune is the perfect amount of refinement that is expected from The Legend of Zelda.

Farewell Hyrule King

This track has a very classical Zelda motif running throughout the song, most notably from A Link To The Past. It has such a simple beginning that really focusses on the notes that are being played and builds up to quite a grand, evil ending.

Credits (Main Theme)

This is the Main Theme for The Wind Waker. This track, which is quite long, is a real testament to what The Wind Waker did for The Legend of Zelda series. Its basically longer, more broad version of the title theme to The Wind Waker.
