"Drifting" (Very simple, but beautiful all the same.)

"Lunatic Pandora" (Very unique and just plain awesome.)

"Man With the Machine Gun" (I love electronic stuff like this. One of my favorite battle themes of all.)

"Never Look Back" (What other RPG would this song work in? Perfect for FF8.)

"Only a Plank Between One and Perdition" (I like danger/escape themes a lot... hehe)

"The Extreme" (I'll take this over Dancing Mad and One-Winged Angel any day.)

"Timber Owls" (I bet this didn't even cross anyone else's mind. I tend to like some of the more underappreciated themes, I guess... I love it. :D )

Of these, my favorite is probably "Man With the Machine Gun".

I can honestly say that I can play this game from beginning to end and feel like every piece of music perfectly fits the part of the game where it's played.

Subjectively speaking, it's a masterpiece in this respect (then again, I suppose that's because I haven't lost the childlike wonder of and love for this game).

I agree with CC. This game's soundtrack is perfectly matched, and I think it's flawless. I think this and Chrono Cross both have that quality to them (though I didn't care for Chrono Cross's main battle music "Gale", it seemed.... clownish. Other than that, Chrono Cross was perfect.)

The FFVIII soundtrack was kinda dissapointment to me.
Don't take me wrong though, it has great tracks that fit in the game and it's mood,
but aren't really the style I like to listen.
However, there are some tracks that I do like.
The songs like Ami, Breezy and My Mind have relaxing and calm melodies,
which I happen to like.

I said that the OST doesn't have many tracks that fits my style,
but there are exceptions though.
Martial Law and Mods De Chocobo are that styled tracks I like.

However, the best track in my opinnion is this soundtrack is Find Your Way,
I just love themysterious feeling it gives.
Amen.

Eyes On Me is great. For the first song in the series to feature actual vocals (screw One Winged Angel) with lyrics you can understand, which I also heard got released as a single in Japan, Eyes On Me is one of the best pieces in the whole series! It sure took me by surprise when I first heard it in the game.

Far, far too many to list, as I like a significant portion of the soundtrack. :)

But, here's a few of my particular favourites:

Overture (a clever tip-of-the-hat to Ravel's Bolero)
Liberi Fatali
Don't Be Afraid/Victory Fanfare
Find Your Way
SeeD
The Landing
Dance With the Balamb Fish
Waltz for the Moon
The Mission
The Man With the Machine Gun
Under Her Control
The Stage is Set
Fithos Musec Wecos Vinosec/Succession of Witches
Movin'
Mods de Chocobo
Silence and Motion
The Castle
The Legendary Beast (of all the FF tracks I'm still waiting for an orchestral arrangement this one is at the top of my list ;)).
The Extreme
Ending Theme (as pretty as [i]Eyes on Me is, the song is basically about Laguna so it's completely irrelevant where and when it appears during the scene on the Ragnarok. I think it worked far better as part of the game's ending, a beautiful track that was quite poignant as well.

Even though FFVIII's OST is not my favourite of Uematsu's works, (I prefer the FFVI and IX OSTs myself), but it's still a beautiful soundtrack all the same. :D

Find Your Way is FF8's best track. =] Quite melancholic and slightly mysterious.
Then Breezy. I guess the laid-back peacefulness is what I love about it.
The other tracks I like most I prefer out of the Fithos Lusec Wecos Vinosec album, where most of them are orchestrated so nicely, but I still prefer the two above by a wide margin.

As many faults as there are in the game, I think FF8 has one of the best soundtracks of the series.

Liberi Fatali (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5f_VBd_17M)
Blue Fields (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQFiOq4VcRc)
Breezy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YB30RVWeuP8&p=FFA173B51D7D483F)
The Spy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txs-MnMiP2w&p=FFA173B51D7D483F)
Balamb Garden (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eU0tRBHnE0)
Martial Law (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjTw1Wcjzf8)

Also, check out lonlonjp covers of the songs, such as this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCN-0b_qfXc). He's a fantastic guitarist and just a genuinely sweet human being to boot.

FFVIII - Galbadian Biker - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sPHW-Z_FbQ)

Sorry, video doesnt appear to be working

The video works for me, and the song is called The Landing (about 50 seconds into it, actually), which first plays when Squall, Zell, Quistis, and Seifer arrive at the Dollet beach. Apparently, the fact that gives it's playing when the Galbadians are launching from their garden to Balamb garden give the song's title a dual-reference. Interesting.

Ahah! Thank you! I must have added about 200 views to all the FF8 OSTs on Youtube, and it was hidden 50 seconds into The Landing (which, I must state, I did also like)! I definitely like the dual meaning too, and the entire fight is one of the most awesome I have ever seen (you can see the rest of the fight on this channel MattWensley1992 (http://www.youtube.com/user/MattWensley1992)). The way you can watch a different part of the screen and see a different part of the entire fight! Quite a bit like the final Harry Potter film.

Anyway, thanks again!
