The New Year is almost upon us, bringing with it much excitement, jubilation, and hopefully some more Zelda. As such, today we have some scores with the theme of time. Time is used so skilfully in the gameplay and story of many Zelda games, and it has many awesome musical tracks to go with it. Hit the jump to listen to our choices!

Mark’s pick:

The Time Portal theme from Skyward Sword is one of my favorite scores of the game. I’m not a very emotional person, but this theme had me closer to tearing up than pretty much any other portion of any other game. You worked towards this moment for a long time, and this tune expresses the emotion at finally achieving your goal. Enjoy!

Amanda’s pick:

I love the Clock Town theme from Majora’s Mask. The contrast between the game’s dark storyline and the cheerful, upbeat melody of Clock Town creates a chilling effect. ArtificialFear has put together an impressive medley of Clock Town days one through three using multiple instruments. Happy New Year!
