Just wondering what songs you love and like to listen to, even to the point of leaving the game open just to listen to them XD

QFG1: No question - Erana's Peace. I imagine this will be a lot of people's answers. A timeless classic.
QFG2: Astrologer's theme. This song left quite the impression on me as a kid. So whimsical, mystical, and nice sounding. I love it XD
QFG3: Welcome Inn. So warm, welcoming, and relaxing. It is the song that sets off all of my DOS Nostalgia hardcore and can even paralyze me with emotion. A close second is the Pool of Peace, being another Erana-associated song that's wonderful to listen to.
QFG4: A very strict tie between meeting the fair folk and battling them. So foreboding, like you're dealing with powers that are way beyond you and are toying with you. Then the battle music kicks in and you're in a frantic battle for your life against these forces, who can and will kick your ass if you do it wrong. And it's only through the benevolence of Erana's Staff that lets you even survive this encounter.
QFG5: No contest. Dance of Mystery and Intrigue. The only one that comes even close to it is the Oracle's theme, which is the most commonly repeated leitmotif in the game aside from the Hero's tune itself.

(copied and pasted from the Quest for More Glory forums)
QFG1: The Dryad's theme
QFG2: Toss up between the "Lawrence Of Arabia" caravan music and the music played while receiving the fruit of compassion
QFG3: The heart of the world screen music
QFG4: Probably the hotel Mordavia theme, purely for nostalgic reasons
QFQ5: Dance of Mystery and Intrigue
QFG1: The Brigand Theme, the theme you hear when you go to the main entrance of the fortress (where the brigands have bows and arrows) or once you're actually inside the fortress, after you've beaten Toro but before you've met Yorick. I know Erana's Peace is considered a classic, and rightfully so, but I tend to prefer faster, louder, more energetic pieces of music.

QFG2: The music you hear once the Djinni teleports you back into Raseir. That music builds the endgame tension and excitement brilliantly. In the remake, though, my answer would be different. It's the scorpion battle theme

QFG3: It's a toss-up between the music you hear when you're fighting the Doppelganger, and the music you hear after you're done with the Doppelganger. Overall the music in this game is hit and miss for me, but they nailed the end-game music.

QFG4: Um, wow, what a hard choice! You really can't go wrong, can you? But, if I have to choose, the main theme gets my vote. I do have to say, the Quest For Glory 4 soundtrack is far and away one of the top two video game soundtracks I have ever encountered. Only the first Gabriel Knight game rivals it. And to think Aubrey Hodges was only 17 when he composed it. Just wow, I cannot say enough good things about the music in this game, or about any aspect of this game. It. is. AWESOME.

QFG5: I'm going to be weird and go with the music for dancing in Gnome Ann's Inn. That music is fun and bouncy, and it's perfect for this comic relief moment in the game.

I'm also going to do Heroine's Quest and Quest For Infamy, because both are great "Quest For Glory" tribute games and part of the reason that they are both great is that they both have great music.

HQ: The Gastropnir theme. It does a perfect job of doing exactly what it's supposed to do. It sets a dark, scary mood letting you know that there is evil in the area.

QFI: Difficult choice. Infamous Quests do a GREAT job with their music. They had great music for their "Space Quest 2" remake and they had great music for QFI. But I'm going with the nighttime music for when you're wandering through the valley. It is so beautiful. The vocal harmonies are great.

QFG1: Trying to think of something besides Erana's Peace. I always really got pumped up by the variation of the battle music used for the harder fights.

QFG2: Absolutely the end-game music. Sets a great tone for the thief's tight-rope walk to the villain.

QFG3: The music from this game was so miserably unmemorable that I cannot recall a single tune that I liked. It all just sounds like pit-pats with oddly placed toots.

QFG4: Is it cheating to say the main theme? Well, the main theme. Such a great powerful prelude to a thrilling adventure. I love how it is occasionally re-used throughout the game in other places, such as in the adventure guild.

QFG5: The main Dragon Fire theme. It sort of calls back to the original theme while being an arrangement all its own.

That doesn't sound right at all... is your sound card emulation working right, or is it just a matter of taste? Let's see.

Here's a list of soundtrack versions of all the songs.

Some particularly memorable ones for me are...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuO0ETHzvww Pool of Peace

Do they sound about what you remember? ("About" because I'm pretty sure that this is the "official" way the music is supposed to sound?)

Oh, it's definitely a matter of taste. Nothing wrong with my sound configs, and I've heard QFG3's soundtrack every manner of ways, and I just don't care for it. The only thing that remotely sounds like music is the Pool of Peace song, but that makes me think of smooth jazz flute in a women's spa and seems out of place in a QFG game.

That's a shame. To each his own, I guess.

QFG1: It's cliche, but I like Erana's Peace most. The character creation screen / alley thieves / brigand fortress music is probably my runner-up.

QFG2: The sequence of tunes when you attack the Emir's palace as a Fighter or Wizard. (The harem and guardroom scenes in the Thieves' route interrupt the flow, unfortunately.) The segue from the "plaza" music to the "inside the palace" music is almost flawless IMO.

QFG3: I think I like Yesufu's theme, when you play Awari with him or (as a Fighter or Paladin) compete with him in spears and bridge wrestling.

QFG4: The Monastery themes really give a sense of how much of a "bad place" it is: Both the loud, threatening chords of the upper floor music and the softer, more quietly menacing basement theme. I like them both, but I think I like the basement theme more.

QFG5: The Dance of the Dryads.
