I have a HUGE collection of MP3s from Quest Studios that I have thrown on my iPod. I don't have them on the random shuffle - but on the Sierra Play List. Whenever I am feeling funky. (Because admittedly, it's odd playing/blasting the music for LSL3 from my SUV). :)

Very true. The music/theme was my ringtone and people at work (when someone dialed me) would always ask what it was.

It must be a tie between QfG4 and KQ6. KQ6's songs describe the emotions in each scene so perfectly. As for the cell phone's ring tone, mine is Beauty's theme when she's still on the Isle of the Crown.

Difficult to say. I've always found music from the Gabriel Knight series quite moving and appealing, as well as more...real. I can't really think of a better word, but it sounds less like game music and more like part of the overall world.

Of course, there are some beautiful pieces in the Quest for Glory series as well. I've always liked the music for Erana's various retreats, the mother of the world, and Aziza's home, among others. I especially love some of the tracks for QfG5: the underwater music, the dryad music, the Silmarian days and nights music. *sigh of nostalgia*

Other than that I have a fondness for a piece or two from KQ4 just because it was my first game with music. Even though it sounds very "beepy" now, I thought it was wonderful and stirring at the time.

The Magic Meadow for QfG1 is one of Mark Seibert's favorite pieces that he did for Sierra. You can here a recording of it with a real guitar here. It is from the Sierra Soundtrack Collection. You will need the real player plugin to play it.

My kinda thread! There are so many good scores. My favourite composers are (in order) Mark Seibert, Ken Allen, and Bhris Brayman. The others are all excellent as well but those are my favourites. Space Quest 4, Conquests of Camelot, King's Quest 5, King's Quest 6, and Police Quest 2 are all among my favourites.

The theme music to Gabriel Knight is one of my favorites.

Best music is defiantely police quest 3. It had such great music and that oppening part is just so great.

I actually had the Sierra Soundtrack Collection. :mrgreen: I've heard that one and it is lovely. *nod*

It's hard to claim just one Sierra song as a favorite...the theme from Erana's Peace, Silmaria Days and Nights, all the GK music, not to mention the KQ classics...then for fun, there's the Leshy song from QG4, the Space Quest theme song, SQ3 World O Wonders tune and (of course!) the elevator music from Shivers 1... (!)

Perhaps the theme from Erana's Peace, and Silmaria Days and Nights, are my faves. But that could change in the next five minutes *grin!*
