Every single time I play Breath of the Wild, I am constantly reminded of the astonishing soundtrack that highlights each moment while you progress through the game. The Breath of the Wild soundtrack overall has grown to be one of my favorites of all time, due to its brilliant mixture of nostalgic-yet-original themes.

So much excitement overcame me when I began to find covers of these songs online, especially music box covers. The unique tone of a music box has always entranced me, and that feeling mixed with Zelda music is the perfect combination for me.

Medli’s Melodies is a series in which we choose our favorite songs from The Legend of Zelda franchise, or highlight a special piece of music from the perpetually creative fan community. Music has always such been such an integral component of Zelda games, and we’re here to celebrate that every week!

I wanted to highlight a wonderful music box cover of “Mipha’s Theme” from Musicbox cover‘s channel. The second I stumbled upon it, I was immediately swept up in how well the song mixed the tones of the music box. There are multiple aspects of this cover that are especially charming, such as the sound of the winding up of the music box halfway through.

This song is so peaceful and tranquil and takes me back to the first encounter with the beloved Princess of the Zora in the game. Since life can become so hectic and stressful, sometimes it’s important to take a step back and just breathe. This cover has helped me feel calm during overwhelmingly busy days, and I hope it can be just as useful to many of you. Remember to be gentle on yourself, and just imagine you are drifting away in Zora’s Domain.
