Questshun for everyone out there; Favorite Touhou theme of all time?

Mmmm... this one is extremely hard... ?w?

I'd probably say Nuclear Fusion, but it's really hard to select just one... ^^;

Sweetness and love~ ♥

It IS really really hard.

I used to be a die hard Last Remote fan, but now I think it's Rigid Paradise.

I never listened much to Last Remote, but it's still a pretty cool theme.

As for Rigid Paradise... I like it too, and I think it suits Yoshika a lot. For some reason, I think it sounds spooky, but a little goofy at the same time, which is fitting for her since she is a silly Zombie after all.  :)

Sweetness and love~ ♥

I find it alright, until the climax of the song, which gives me shivers. ;~;

I like how lively yet dark Rigid Paradise is. Your description suits it quite nicely.

As for Nuclear Fusion, it's an all-around solid choice. It's probably one of the most "dramatic" boss theme, that, unlike Border of Life or Septette for the Dead Princess, screams "Badass!" rather than "Elegant".

I agree with that, and I think Nuclear Fusion sounds pretty powerful and boss-ish at the same time too, which fits a character that's all about power, even though she is a little airheaded to use it to its full extent. Those "CAUTION-CAUTION!" beeps through the battle also makes it extra dramatic, giving the sensation that you're fighting an opponent that is extremely dangerous and could really screw you up anytime.

I think ZUN most of the time develops fitting themes for all of the characters, except for some stuff that sometimes feels a bit unusual... like Wakasagihime with a theme that's all about guitars. I mean... I never really associated rock with mermaids, so, I think that one theme would fit better another kind of character, such as a punk girl or something. But then again, it'd feel a little stereotyped in the end, so, perhaps it'd not be a good idea.

Completely; Plus, the nuclear sirens actually fit very well with the song and really gives a "Well I'm done for" feeling. Fits nicely with a boss that throws gigantic suns at you.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought her theme was... Strangely unfitting. It's really good, and pleasing to the ear, but a bit strange considering its owner. But, as you said, originality isn't bad either, so no harm done. Plus, Yamame's theme was similar in the sense that is was somewhat unfitting (Spider underground giving us a half-dark, half-upbeat theme)

A Maiden's Illusionary Funeral ~ Necro-Fantasy

Back when I was working on defeating Ran to get my first Extra clear ever, hearing her epic boss theme was literally the biggest reason for me to keep trying despite my failures. It played a major part in being why attempting to clear PCB Extra was the most memorable moment in my Touhou career.

*checks Touhou Wiki* Oh son of a BITCH, another song title translation changed.  Though this one does sound more fitting. :V

Now, as for favorite theme of all time.....ooooohhh, this is a difficult question.  But if I had to pick one, I'd probably have to say Hartmann's Youkai Girl.

But then again, it'd feel a little stereotyped in the end, so, perhaps it'd not be a good idea.
I think it fits well if you consider the fact that, during the events of the game, she's acting unusually agressive. 'Sides, the chorus is quite cute.

In general, I think the high use of guitars in DDC is to make the songs more agressive, to fit the fact that normally pacific youkai are getting rilled up for some reason.

Plus, Yamame's theme was similar in the sense that is was somewhat unfitting (Spider underground giving us a half-dark, half-upbeat theme)
Yamame's an upbeat socialite, but also a dangerous youkai that can easily kill a human. Her theme fits her well in general, I think.

Choosing a favorite music is haaaaaaard why did you have to ask about that Ikari ; . ;
It's too much of a tie between "Evening Star", "Suwa Foughten Field" and "Old and Distant Hermit"

Yeah, I do agree with that; I think it's the fact it has an aggressive feeling to it, that is quite unusual for a Stage 1 boss; Much like Wakasagihime's. Nothing unpleasant of course.

I'm happy to know I wasn't the only one that's torn apart to choose their favorite theme. ^^;

My traditional two favourite themes have been Necrofantasia and Satori Maiden for a long time, but now I don't think I can (and want to) choose one or two out of the whole bunch.

And while we're at it, what's your favourite theme each "across" the stages/bosses?

let's see for me:

stage 1: the ground's colour is yellow, if you want to count it (if not, romantic fall)
1st boss: crystallized silver
stage 2: song of the night sparrow
2nd boss: green-eyed jealousy
stage 3: walking the streets of a former hell
3rd boss: doll judgement
stage 4: alice maestra
4th boss: satori maiden
stage 5: toughie, but primal scene or lullaby of deserted hell
5th boss: luna dial
final stage: dream land
final boss: onigashima in the fairyland or flight of the bamboo cutter
extra stage: the inevitably forbidden game
extra boss: necrofantasia

I'll leave it up to you guys if you want to count Complete Darkness as a 5th boss or final boss theme or A Midnight Fairy Dance as a stage 3 or final stage one, or if you even want to count The Ground's Colour Is Yellow or Higan Retour or whatnot.

I've gone through pretty much every game, where there is a close runner-up, I've listed an Honorable Mention.

HrtP - Magic Mirror - Not... quite sure why
Honorable Mention - Oriental Magician

SoEW - The Tank Girls' Dream - Iconic. Catchy.
Honorable Mentions - Complete Darkness, Himorogi, Burn in Violet

PoDD- Strawberry Crisis - One of the top themes I've heard really.
Honorable Mention - Reincarnation

LLS - Spirit Battle ~ Perdition Crisis - Elly , actually it's because it fits the fight's pacing well, with her whole survival phase at the start.
Honorable Mention - Scarlet Symphony ~ Scarlet Phoneme  [It may be a loop but it's a good loop!]

MS - Forbidden Magic, This is a awesome, under-loved theme.
Honorable Mentions - Plastic Mind, The Last Judgement

EoSD - Locked Girl ~ The Girl's Secret Room - Fits Patchouli so well
Honorable Mentions - UN Owen was Her?, Shanghai Teahouse ~ Chinese Tea

PCB - A Maiden's Illusionary Funeral ~ Necro-Fantasy , yes, I think this is actually better than Necrofantasia, although it's very close.
Honorable Mention - Phantom Ensemble

IN - Reach for the Moon, Immortal Smoke  - Quite possibly one of the most fitting, and best themes in Touhou PERIOD. The ticking clock in the background, for example.
Honorable Mention - Plain Asia

PoFV - Touhou Judgement in the Sixtieth Year ~ Fate of Sixty Years - Clearly the best piece from PoFV.
Honorable Mention -Poison Body ~ Forsaken Doll

MoF - Faith is for the Transient People
Honorable Mention - The Venerable Ancient Battlefield ~ Suwa Foughten Field

SA - Last Remote
Honorable Mention - Hellfire Mantle

UFO - Beware the Umbrella Left there Forever
Honorable Mentions - Fires of Hokkai, Provincial Makai City Esoteria

TD - Old Yuanshen - Fits the chaotic fight so perfectly it's stupid.
Honorable Mention - Youkai Back Shrine Road

DDC - I actually like Stage 2's Theme - Humans and Youkai Coming and Going at the Canal

Decimal Games:
IaMP - Voile Magic Library, yes, Patchy themes are in general awesome.
SWR - Catastrophe in Bhava-agra ~ Wonderful Heaven
StB - Retrospective Kyoto
DS - The Mystery in Your Town
GFW - Staking Your Life On A Prank [Seriously this is a gem]
HM - The Village in the Dead of Night , it's surprisingly sinister!

Other:

SWR - Dancing Water Spray
Touhou 13.5 - The Lost Emotion
Touhou 14 Trial - Stage: Bamboo Forest of the Full Moon
                                 Boss: Dullahan Under the Willows

All correct choices. You pass.

I'm just glad I'm not the only one who's a sucker for the violin in Dancing Water Spray.

Starting with PoDD, since the previous two never really resonated with me.

PoDD- Lost Dream! Spooky!

LLS- Alice Maestra! It actually manages to be a little spooky!

MS- Romantic Children for sure.

EoSD- A Soul as Red as a Ground Cherry

PCB- Ohhhhh boy this is tough. It's definitely a tie between Border of Life and Deep Mountain. I know those are totally different, but they are both super special to me.

IaMP- Broken Moon. It's so, so pretty.

IN- Extend Ash. Something about it sounds so sad, but I just can't put my finger on it.

PoFV- Riverside View!!  :*

StB- Wind Tour.

MoF- Fall of Fall. Ohhhh my goodness.

SWR- Wonderful Heaven!

SA- Last Remote. That being said, I really, really love all of SA's soundtrack.

UFO- At the End of Spring!!!

FW- Magus Night. Goodness gracious.

DS- Infinite Nightmare. There's something spooky about it.

TD- Night Sakura of Dead Spirits. Easily one of ZUN's most beautiful compositions.  :*

I haven't had the chance to play the DD demo yet, so I can't say anything for 14.

haha ya im bak lol

I wish I was familiar enough with PC-98's music to be able to comment on it.

EoSD: Tie between Chinese Tea and Beloved Tomboyish Daughter. The former because it's just a glorious song, and the latter because it reminds me of my own daughter (long story).

PCB: Mystic Oriental Dream. It reminds me of driving a car down a country road in the middle of the night.

IaMP: lol didn't play

IN: Man I don't even know where to begin here. Every song in this game is amazing. I guess I'll go with Voyage 1969, as it continues to come back to me, and really gets to me every time.

PoFV: Wind God Girl, and because this song's going to come up for StB, too, let me add that I think this is one of ZUN's best songs in general, and easily the best use of ZUNtrumpets.

StB: See above.

MoF: Candid Friend barely edges out Gensokyo The Gods Loved and Faith Is For The Transient People, probably because of a video I once saw of some dude playing Candid Friend on a shamisen.

SWR: lol didn't play

SA: Pardon me for being totally unoriginal, but Lullaby of A Forgotten Hell. Reminds me of the summer of 2009, which was an amazing summer.

UFO: The Traditional Old Man and the Stylish Girl. This is such a fucked-up, psychotic little carnival tune. If only it had been put in for a hard stage.

GFW: Loose Rain. Such a dramatic song for a carefree game.

DS: Nemesis' Stronghold. This is kind of an anti-song, isn't it? No real beat, but some interesting stuff going on here.

TD: Let's Live In A Lovely Cemetery, no question. Another example of night music.

HM: lol didn't play

DDC: Well, we only have a demo so far, but Dullahan Under The Willows. It sounds like some British 80s New Wave band or something.
