Farewell Hyrule King Piano Cover


To celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda today, along with my video on why I love the series, I've also recorded this piano cover of my favorite song from Wind Waker: Farewell Hyrule King. I personally didn't really like many of the songs on the Wind Waker soundtrack, but I love this one. It's based on the Hyrule Castle theme from A Link to the Past, but the slow, dramatic piano makes it sound totally unique. The arpeggios midway are reminiscent of the dungeon theme from the original Legend of Zelda, and then it breaks into a crescendo of a finale. When added to the sorrowful intensity of the penultimate cutscene, it could easily be argued that this is the best song in the game. I hope you love it as much as I do!
