Merry Christmas from the Lifestream!

Two months and 63 polls after launching our Final Fantasy music ranking event, the Lifestream’s community has spoken: their favourite song from the entire series is…

Main Theme of Final Fantasy VII!

It had to contend with some stiff competition from the likes of Not Alone (Final Fantasy IX), Liberi Fatali (VIII) and Zanarkand (X), but in the end, it’s perhaps no surprise that the main theme from the game our community is built around took the crown.

    Yes! Go “Main Theme of Final Fantasy VII”! I knew it would win! Nice list on the rest of the songs in the 100 list, by the way.

    Agree with this list. FF7 theme is so sentimental. Wish there was also room on there for Daguerreo (water library) & Treno from IX, otherwise content. It’s been a while but the sunlit waterscape from 13 reminds me somewhat of kiss me goodbye from 12. Not Alone (IX) almost made me cry, just one of those wow moments.

    It’s nice to see the main FF7 theme getting some love. Most fans I know seem to love the FFVIII intro or FFX’s menu theme. But for me, there’s something so incredibly epic about FFVII. It’s calming to listen to, and the way the music swells is…breath-taking. It’s a perfect way to transition between the dark, murky streets of Midgar to the vast beauty of the world map.
