I love KQ5.

I love KQ6 too.

Why can't we all just get along?

Word. It'd be nice if people didn't have a dying need to make everyone hate the games they hate.

And there's a couple of themes in KQ5 which are just awesome, the weeping tree is one of my favorite pieces of music.

I love the weeping willow's tune. Did you know that it was probably based on the melody from Les Miserables'  "Castle on a Cloud"?

The Weeping Tree is one of Sierra's best themes, I completely agree on that.

Though KQ6 is my favorite King's Quest game, I think that Princess Cassima's theme in KQV is the absolute most beautiful piece of music in the series.  I used to have Graham stand in the kitchen just so I could listen to it. :)

Can you find a link to it? I didn't make it that far in KQV and I'd like to hear it.

I also love the Village theme from KQVI. Oh, and Beauty's theme, one screen to the left.

Beauty's theme was really pretty, yes.

Click here.  It's the penultimate song, aptly named "Princess Cassima."  It's pretty much an instrumental "Girl in the Tower," but there are some definite changes.  It's beautiful.

My favorite version of her theme is when Sing Sing delivers the letter from Alexander to Cassima.
I also love Sing Sing's theme. So pleasant and pretty, very nostalgia inducing (for me).

It's kind of ironic that a sweet, pretty bird is named after a horrible prison in real life.

Don't get me wrong; KQVI is a GREAT game!  Now King's Quest 7.... I don't like that game at all!  I pretend it doesn't even exist, honestly!

Oh my gosh, I LOVE that song. :) I can't find it for download anywhere, though, which is frustrating.

PS--Mods, we already have a "King's Quest music" thread, right?  Perhaps some of these more recent posts would be better suited there. ;)

Woah, I never realized that. What do you figure it signifies? Does it just allude to the fact that Cassima is locked away, as if in prison?

This is indeed beautiful, and much better than GitT. I think it also plays during KQVI's opening cutscene, where Alexander is moping about Cassima, appropriately.

I actually think all of the instrumental versions are so much better and much prettier than the actual Girl in the Tower vocal song. I know what they were trying to go for, and it was a nice attempt...but it came off really cheesy

I completely agree. :yes: I'll put Princess Cassima's theme on repeat while I clean/do homework/etc, but I simply cannot listen to the actual "Girl in the Tower" song more than once in a row.  I love it for its nostalgia, but...definitely not the greatest song ever written.

It sure does! :) Not for very long, but it's definitely there.

Perhaps, and also I guess a clever allusion (I think that's the right word here) to her being a songbird.
I kind of wish we could've heard Sing Sing talk. Her role in KQ6 is underplayed; it could've been bigger.

"It's not that kind of [bird,] Graham..." ;)

Magic dough could help.  But I don't think that Sing Sing was intended to talk.  I like that she's just a sweet, loyal companion to Cassima, and does her job as messenger when needed.  AND she has babies in TSL. <3

Very interesting...We should a KQVI Analysis thread somewhere.

Why is this? She's pretty important to me. She passes messages to Cassima to reassure her that Alexander is there to save her. It opens up the perfect ending as an option too. That's pretty important to me :)
