For obvious reasons, this overlaps a bit with Day 4’s post. So to add on to that, I just have one additional song.
This is the ending theme to Crono Trigger, one of my favorite games of all time. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that it makes me cry, but if I were to cry, this wouldn’t be a bad song to cry to.
With a heavy does of nostalgia, the airy resonance of a music box, and a dash of hope, it does just about everything right to wrap up the best ending of the game. It effectively ties together the story, emotions, and brings to the forefront the idea that everything is finally over. Without playing the game, it doesn’t have the same impact that it would have at the end of the long road, but it’s still a very nice song.
