The song, when it comes, is a moment of understanding between the game and the player. You’re not just a participant any more. You’re a creator. “This is a moment,” it tells you. “Don’t let go of it”.

First you hear the galloping of a horse, joined by soft major-key piano and melancholy, soaring ocarina notes as a young man in a green tunic rides under the setting moon. The camera pans over a blocky, low-resolution, yet spartanly beautiful landscape as the sun rises. It prepares you for a game that could be as melancholy as it was exciting, as emotionally affecting as it was technologically innovative.
