    Do you have any? Or any remixes of them you love?

    I think I'll always have a nostalgic love for the Amiga Ultima 5 theme -- I even taught myself to play it on the piano years ago. :) I have a lot of tracks I love from the two Underworld games, with I think my favourite being Maps and Legends from UW1. I also love the character creation theme for U6, and will even give the thumbs up to some of the U8 tracks, like the endgame one.

    The Character Creation and Intro themes to U6 are amazing, as was the opening music for U5. U7 had a special place for how well the music was scripted to fit different areas. :D

    Stones goes without saying. :) Say what we will about Ascension, the chamber music for Stones was beautiful.

    You know, 9 had the potential to be good...some of the dungeons looked really cool...if it was only as open as 7 with those graphics it could have been cool.

    People randomly whistling in Ultima IX always gets stuck in my head. Can never find a copy of it on the internet though :(

    U9 was cool. 3D in that day and age > u7 mechanics.

    While Stones remains my all-time favourite (it's a song about Wiltshire after all :D) I love every single track in Ultima VI, and Ultima VIII had some pretty atmospheric music too.

    Stones. It has also been my cell phone ringtone for many years. The Music Box is my wake up alarm.

    People, people, if you're going to argue about whether or not U9 was good, I request that you keep it exclusively to the music.

    Thanks :)

    Apart from Stones I always really liked the Fellowship theme from Ultima 7.

    Also the torture theme which seems to get forgotten. Really good piece of midi music.

    I have all the Ultima Online MIDI songs on my phone. Let's see which one I like the most... ah, it's called "Forest".

    I never got into the official Ultima Online, but I did listen to the midis on loops for a good while. I remember liking...Ocllo, I think it was :)
