Top 10 Skyward Sword Songs

A YouTuber by the name of vapidbobcat has recently posted a video of his Top 10 favorite musical tracks from Skyward Sword. After playing through Skyward Sword four times, I do think that Skyward Sword has one excellent soundtrack. However, I’m not sure if any of the individual tracks really stand out as being amongst the best in the series. At least not yet. Themes such as the Dark World from A Link to the Past, Stone Tower Temple from Majora’s Mask, or Dragon Roost Island from The Wind Waker were among the greatest tracks in the series’ history. I don’t think it’s clear as to which Skyward Sword tracks will be joining that elite listing. Jump inside to see the listing and to take a listen to this users personal Top 10 list.

I don’t really agree with many of the tracks and the order they are listed in… but hey, this is a personal Top 10 listing. In particular I thought the Skyview Temple and Fire Sanctuary, while both terrific songs in their own respect, are not amongst the best tracks in the game. The Miniboss theme was great… but just seemed way too high on this listing. Lastly, the Song of the Hero was one of the most disappointing tracks in my opinion. Considering it was such an essential part of the quest, I was expecting a lot from it when first hearing it… but it just didn’t connect with me at all. In fact, I was legitimately disappointed with how that song turned out.

I did like the inclusion of the Koloktos boss battle theme as it really was one heck of a mood setter to an amazing boss battle. There was a lot missing from this list and I cannot even begin to think which songs I’d put on my personal Top 10 listing. One song that became memorable to me the first time I heard it was the Isle of Songs theme. Not sure where that would fit on my listing… but in general, I think it’s too early for me to establish a listing of my own. We’ll see how the music of Skyward Sword does in the test of time.
