Most fans of The Legend of Zelda series can probably give you at-least one song that they feel is truly their favorite, or if not their favorite, a song which inspired the most emotion in them. For me, one of the songs that to this day speaks to something deep inside me is the “Bolero Of Fire”. Ocarina of Time is one of my favorite Zelda games, and to me one of the most memorable moments in the game is when Sheik appears and teaches Link the song before disappearing again. The melody of this song is subtly haunting and in my mind aids in the mysterious allure of Sheik as a character. I never had an appreciation for the Ocarina before this game either and the tones that this instrument gives to the song make it all the more eerily beautiful. A few months ago STL Ocarina made a music video of the Bolero of Fire which I believe does this beautiful song a fair bit of justice.

“It is something that grows over time… a true friendship. A feeling in the heart that becomes even stronger over time… The passion of friendship will soon blossom into a righteous power and through it, you know which way to go… This song is dedicated to the power of the heart… Listen to the Bolero of Fire….”
Although there are many amazing songs within The Legend of Zelda series, for some reason this still remains one of my favorites. It was also one of the first songs that I was able to master on my own STL Ocarina and even though I have added a few more songs to my Ocarina abilities, it stays to this day one of my favorites to play as well.
