Stone Tower’s Temple Music is a Palindrome

Most people think of words that are spelled the same backwards as they are forwards when they hear “palindrome.” And if you’re anything like me, you think of Monty Python’s “Parrot Sketch” (“That’s not a palindrome, the palindrome of ‘Bolton’ would be ‘Notlob!’”) But a palindrome really just refers to anything that is the same backwards as forwards, including music. According to Did You Know Gaming, the music for the Stone Tower Temple from Majora’s Mask is a palindrome.

Personally, I’m not so sure. I think the term “musically symmetrical” would be more appropriate. To see what I mean, simply take a look at this sheet music for the song. The notes aren’t exactly the same backwards as forwards, rather it is specific phrases that are in reverse order. But I could just be splitting hairs. Tell us what you think in the comments below!
