“Ballad of the Goddess” is one of the most notable new songs to appear in the Zelda series over the past fifteen years. In addition to playing a key role in the story of Skyward Sword, the song also doubled as the main theme of the 2010 game. Since its debut, “Ballad of the Goddess” has appeared in the Super Smash Bros. series on Zelda stages, and it has cameoed as one of the Milk Bar song in A Link Between Worlds.  As many Zelda fans might already know, the melody of the “Ballad of the Goddess” is “Zelda’s Lullaby” played backwards.

This guitar cover of “Ballad of the Goddess” by Bad Hairline Productions is an exciting arrangement of the well-known song. The cover  opens with the gentle sounds of acoustic guitars before the electric guitar take over at the 0:30 mark. In addition to the wailing electric guitar, Bad Hairline Productions uses of a drums and other heavy percussion to give the arrangement a fuller sound. The focus on the electric guitar sets this cover apart from many other arrangements that use piano or other instruments found in a traditional orchestra. This arrangement by Bad Hairline Productions reminds me a lot of the song “Skyloft” from Hyrule Warriors, which was a combination of “Skyloft” and “Ballad of the Goddess” from Skyward Sword.
