No piece of music has ever moved me as much as Midna's Lament in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Good lord is it a scorcher out there or what? All week long, I've been doing everything in my power to move a little as possible so as not douse my clothing in sweat from the near triple-digit temperatures I have to endure. With no end to the heat in sight, it seems I'll be spending the next month or so the same way I spent this weekend: listening to music.

I haven't done many music posts for the Destructoid Discusses weekend posts. Not because I don't enjoy game music but because most of the tunes I know come from three or four franchises that get talked about all the time in this series. And today is no exception. I wanted to know what game music my fellow writers felt moved by, the music that takes an already extraordinary scene and amps up the emotion to David Cage levels. Easily, the song for me that fits that bill is "Midna's Lament" from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

It may not be my favorite game in the series, but this is no doubt my favorite scene from a Zeldagame. Midna, the imp-cat who's been guiding me along on my adventure so far, is hurt. Close to death. I, as Link as a dog, must rush her to find help. To save her life. And while I run through this pouring rain, this is the song I hear.
