Choosing The Perfect Victory Music For Life's Little Triumphs

Of the many rhythms common to the Role-Playing Game, "victory music" is one of my favourites. Every time you emerge from battle victorious, a familiar, stirring theme plays. You tally up your experience point gains, count your loot, and level up.

I want that music to play in my everyday life. Why can't my every accomplishment be accompanied by victorious fanfare? I don't know. I think I'm going to start carrying around a little set of speakers with me, and having gaming's best victory anthems score my everyday accomplishments.

Here is a list of the themes I'd want to play, and when. (Do listen to them, for full effect):

Final Fantasy VII

I want this music to play every time I reach inbox zero.

Trails in the Sky

I want this music to play every time I switch from sweatpants to real pants.

Persona 3

I want this music to play every time I walk into the building where I used to have a job I didn't like.

Final Fantasy Tactics

I want this music to play every time I close the printer door after installing a new printer cartridge.

Suikoden III

I want this music to play every time I ride my bike down the hill in front of my apartment.

Lunar 2

I want this music to play every time I peruse the wine section at the grocery store.

Saga Frontier

I want this music to play every time I successfully snag a cab from the other six people standing in front of the bar.

Chrono Trigger

I want this music to play every time I get a notification that the girl I like has commented on one of my Facebook posts.

Chrono Cross

I want this music to play every time I look out my window in the morning and see that it is actually not foggy today in San Francisco.

The Throne Room

I want this music to play every time I walk into a room carrying a just-delivered pizza.

    chrono cross and persona one made me lol.
    I think the FFXII Fanfare is the winner over the VII one though.

    It's FFVII for me! Used to be my message tone until I saw Advent Children.

    I have the short version of the FFVII fanfare as my message tone.

    This would make life sooooo cheesy. It'd be like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World but times 100000.
