Good old Prologue. I love that song. Um, excuse me, I have something in my eye.

Final Fantasy (NES): Music
AirshipThe Airship Theme. Not much else to say.
Battle ThemeThis is the music that plays during battles. Youre probably sick of hearing it 500,000 times while playing the game, but download it anyways. :)
Castle ConeriaThe music that plays in Coneria Castle (and other castles). I like this song. But then again, I like all the songs. Whatyagonnado.
Dead MusicSad music, plays when you die. Hopefully you didnt hear this song much while playing...
Dungeon ThemeThis song plays in the Marsh Cave. I didnt like this song much...
Ending ThemeThis song RULES! Its the song that plays when you beat the game. I love this song, man. I just love it.
Gurgu VolcanoJust like the name says, its the Volcano music. It's not a bad song... but it's not my favorite FF1 song, either.
Matoyas CaveTheme used in Matoyas Cave, amongst other places. I like this song.
Menu ScreenThe happy music that plays on the menu screen. Its happy music. Trust me.
PreludeThis is a great song, thats been in EVERY Final Fantasy in the series. It's the song that plays during the opening paragraph, and at the Save/Continue screen.
Prologue (opening theme)If there is any one song you download, THIS should be it. This song is my all-time favorite; it too has been in every Final Fantasy in the series, in one form or another. Download this immediately, you wont be disappointed.
Sailing ShipI really dont like this song much. But it's worth getting, if you want to complete your FF1 soundtrack collection.
Save MusicReally short music that plays when you save your game. (Dont forget to hold RESET while turning power off.)
Shop ThemeDoesnt this music just make you want to spend lots of money? ...didn't think so.
Temple of FiendsThis is yet another of the dungeon themes in FF1. FF1 sure did have a lot of wonderful dungeon themes..
Temple of Fiends RevisitedThe music from the Temple of Fiends of the past.
The Floating CastleThis is a kind of futuristic song that plays in the Sky Castle. I dont like this song much, but it's not that bad.
Town ThemeThe ever-present song that plays in every town. Another nice relaxing song. This is kind of like an early predecessor to FF7s Kalm Theme, I think.
Victory FanfareThe triumphant music that plays when youve killed all the bad guys.
World ThemeThis is the music that plays on the World Map. Its nice and calm and relaxing.

You're welcome.

Like many other FF's, the Overworld theme is my favorite. That would be a nice poll, wouldn't it? Favorite Overworld music in any FF. I would vote for FF VI World of Balance.

Dec 29, 2009 11:59 PM PST

The FF4 one is pretty tranquil and calm.

*nom nom*

Another upvote for the FF4 map music. It's calm, but it has a certain melancholy energy to it that I like. The FF5 World 2 map music is also good for similar reasons.

Dec 31, 2009 02:16 PM PST

IMO, FF4 has some of the best songs in the FF series (besides FF1).

Dec 31, 2009 03:26 PM PST

But none can beat the superiorness of the Archadian Theme in FF12!

Dec 31, 2009 09:46 PM PST

Rock on!

are you not breaking any copyrights here?

FFX just cause there was no ofical overword

Jan 22, 2010 10:52 PM PST

The Temple of Fields Revisited Theme is so epic. I love it.

If we're still talking about other Final Fantasy games: Rose of May (Beatrix's Theme) from FFIX is beautiful and depressing.

Jan 27, 2010 12:58 PM PST

>>Kain: Ssshhh!

Personal, all-time favorite from this list: Airship theme. Second: Ending Theme. Oh frik. Love the ending theme, you have no idea. No idea.

Runner-up: Temple of Fiends Revisited. Epic, indeed.

Feb 04, 2010 04:17 PM PST

I love both temple of fiends songs

Feb 06, 2010 09:08 AM PST

I would mind throwing in a couple of these toons into my upcoming wedding reception

Feb 11, 2010 04:56 PM PST

"but download it anyways. :)"

I hope you don't have a bandwidth cap :P

an nothing beats the origional

Apr 06, 2010 09:33 PM PDT

Ah, the victory fanfare. FF won't be the same without it.

Jun 11, 2010 04:25 PM PDT

Menu screen makes me cry T_T

in a good way

Jun 14, 2010 08:05 PM PDT

I'll make an exception to my usual wsc/origins stuff is better here: I LOVE the ending theme, prologue, and TOF 2 here.

Jul 18, 2010 06:03 PM PDT

The town theme will forever be burned into my memory. It's just so beautiful in my opinion, I will never forget it.

Aug 30, 2010 11:52 PM PDT

I play some of these on my guitar.I mixed the prelude with temple of fiends for a cool song.It starts out like the prelude,then blends to temple of fiends.the prelude was cool but it's too repetitive.so i had to mix it up.Nobuo Uematsu would be impressed(or mad).

Sep 18, 2010 10:31 PM PDT

"cries" you'd be a fricking mad man to hate these song "cries loudly"

Feb 14, 2014 07:58 AM PST

I love these songs! :)

Mar 22, 2014 10:30 PM PDT

It took me a long time to realize why these songs sound a bit funky: they've been "stereo-ized." The NES only does mono sound, but somebody put reverb and weird EQ on their recording to make it more stereo.

I'd say the left channel is closest to the original. The right has way too much triangle wave.

Sep 04, 2015 01:47 AM PDT

I really like the redone versions of the Gurgu music. Notably, FFIX.

Feb 27, 2016 07:18 PM PST

I know

Feb 27, 2016 07:18 PM PST

the dead music is awesome.

Nov 27, 2016 10:19 AM PST

Thank You

Aug 02, 2017 07:52 AM PDT

My favorite song is what you call the Gurgu Volcano song, even though you first hear it in the Earth Cave.

I love how the Temple of Fiends (revisited) song is the same as the Temple of Fiends song, but just in a different key.

And I agree, the Dead Music (dirge) is awesome.

Oct 14, 2017 06:33 AM PDT

The music on this game is still pretty great. It's too bad all these tracks have a fade out, rather than being made into seamless loops. The reverb and EQ is okay, though. At least it's not as bad as that channel on youtube that drowns all classic NES scores in reverb like a moron.

Oct 23, 2017 12:33 PM PDT

II cannot stand the Marsh Cave music in the original NES FF1. It is so annoying and grating on my nerves, that I get in and out of the Marsh Cave as fast as I can.

(I actually like the Marsh Cave music in the newer versions of FF1.)

Nov 07, 2017 08:41 PM PST

Thanks for sharing, brian? Whoever you are, it's appreciated, and you are thanked.

As for the music, I love how Uematsu(sp?) crafts three lines for almost every piece, making them technically impossible on piano. a bassline, a middle line, and a soprano line, all in counterpoint, good music! Love from 2017! email me at james102484@hotmail.com if you love ff1 too!!!
