Hey! Listen! Midna’s Desperate Hour: Part 1 / video

Midna’s Desperate Hour, Midna’s Desperation, Midna’s Lament. Regardless of what you call it, this song is one of the greatest pieces of music in the Legend of Zelda series and quite possibly my personal favourite. As most of you would know this song is played in Twilight Princess, and begins after the cutscene upon collecting the third fused shadow. During the cutscene, Zant (the antagonist) appears and, after taking the fused shadows, gravely injures Midna by exposing her to the light caused by the light spirit Lanayru. From that point the player must quickly depart from Lake Hylia to get to Hyrule Castle as soon as possible in hopes that Princess Zelda can cure Midna from her ailments.

However, during this period of rushing from point A to point B, what would you expect the soundtrack to sound like? Pure heart pounding, panicking, adrenaline filled music? Perhaps, I must admit that’s what I was expecting. But instead came a slow, dark, emotional piano tune that genuinely made me concerned as to whether I would be able to get to the destination in time to save Midna. Ever since that point I have replayed it multiple times, learnt to play the song on ocarina, and have searched for whatever amazing covers I could find. Therefore, I thought that it would be great to resurrect the Hey! Listen! segment by showing great fan made covers of this song in the coming weeks. This is the first cover that I will be presenting.
