@LicoriceAllsorts , which ‘Victory Fanfare’ would you like to nominate? All the games do it a bit differently iirc. :)

@Ergo , ‘Aerith’s theme’ and ‘One Winged Angel’ were already nominated, so you still have 19 songs you can nominate!

@Radigar , ‘You Can Hear the Cry of the Planet’, ‘Judgement Day’, ‘One Winged Angel’, and ‘Liberi Fatali’ were already nominated, so you still have 14 nomination slots open.

@Howl , the entirety of ‘Dancing Mad’ was already nominated so no need to nominate any specific piece of it (it’s a 17+ minute song all in all so kudos to those that listen to the whole thing :P); ‘Man with the Machine Gun’ and ‘A Place to Call Home’ were also nominated previously. You have 3 nomination slots open still!

@Mr. Ite , ‘Battle with the Four Fiends’ was already nominated, so you have 1 slot still open. Can pick another from your first massive list. ;)

@looneymoon , what do you mean by Distant Worlds? And, do you want the Japanese version of Suteki Da Ne?

@SeaDragon , ‘Cosmo Canyon’ (as ‘Valley of the Fallen Star’) and ‘Someday the Dream Will End’ (as ‘A Fleeting Dream’) have both already been nominated under different names. I’m not positive which names are the official title and will be looking into that before we get around to the polls! So you still have 4 songs you can nominate.

@HylianMogget , ‘Shinra, Inc.’ has already been nominated. Rose of May is it’s own song so it’s definitely allowed. :) You still have 10 more songs you can nominate if you’d like!

@Ghost X , ‘Movin’’ has already been nominated. You still have 15 songs you can nominate if you want!


Phew, that’s all the duplicates I’ve noticed!

One more thing to mention: I’m going to assume that a song being nominated is from its original rendition unless otherwise specified. So if you nominate something from FFII, for example, I’ll be linking the original version of the song, no PSP remake versions or whatnot.

Below this is the entire list of nominated songs so far. Check this list to see if something you want to nominate has already been nominated! :) If you spot any errors, please let me know! I'll also be putting this into the OP for easy access.

Lol. I just realized that I nominated songs from the Final Bosses of each of FFXIV's numbered expansions (Ultima, Heroes, The Worm's Tail)...

@Flare Small nitpick. The version of "Rise of the White Raven" you link to is the orchestral version, not the original in-game version. Here's the correct music. It starts midway though the video because the first six minutes are the song that plays in the first phases of the boss fight. "Rise of the White Raven" is the song that plays in the last phase.

Rise of the White Raven

Sunleth Waterscape, Distant Worlds, Suteki Da Ne?
Sorry I meant "Memoro de la Stono." Also, Japanese version of Suteki de Ne?
I'll add Memoro de la Stono to the OP :) Also, as your first quote says, you mentioned Suteki Da Ne, so I assumed you wanted to nominate it unless you meant to write Memoro de la Stono?

Edit:
@Philco , Judgement Day was already nominated by another, so no need to nominate it again. You still have 16 more nomination slots! :)

The original version of the song I nominated is in the Wonderswan version of FFII, it's not a rendition of the battle theme in the NES version (there's only one battle theme in the original FFII and it's got it's own rendition in both the Wonderswan and PSP versions). And it's not very good in the Wonderswan version so I'll retract the nomination.

A little late on this front, but do you think maybe we could have a separate ranking threads for songs that are scored versus songs that are sung by an artist?
I know in the case of the FFXIV songs that this would be pretty impossible. Most of the songs with lyrics are not sung by professional artists hired by SE, but employees of SE in other departments that also do vocals on occasion.

I'll replace my nomination with Lightning's Theme from FFXIII.

Just an option. :monster:
Not sure what Fancy thinks on this, but personally I don't think we need to separate them. There's not that many compared to the instrumental stuff. But what do others think of this idea?

My bias towards non-lyrics songs makes me want that as well, but it’s coming from me wanting the songs I like to win. So do with that what you will.

It depends really. Personally, I think belting out the lyrics to Simple and Clean in bad Japanese is a much different experience from making farty trumpet sound affects to the tune of One Winged Angel.

I'd prefer them not to be split up.

That said, much like Ite it's because I want the songs I nominated to win and FFXIV has way more songs with lyrics then most of the FF games do. Like... around half of the songs I nominated have lyrics (or vocals) because it's just so normal for FFXIV Boss music to have lyrics of some kind. It's to the point where it's more noteworthy for FFXIV Boss music to not have lyrics by now. In fact, I'd almost say having vocals in songs on a regular basis is one of the things that sets Sokan's music appart from Umetsu's. Songs with lyrics aren't something "special" or "significant" in FFXIV the way they are in other Final Fantasy games becasue of that.

Right, I think we'll just keep them all in the same polls to make it easiest.

I've updated the OP's list of nominations! @Minato please check to make sure I deleted the appropriate FFII nomination. XD <3

Also, we have one more day for nominations to be open! Unless several people need an extra day or something to nominate, that will be when it officially closes, so be sure to have all your nominations in by then! :) Which reminds me, I need to do mine tomorrow.........
