    O.1 Introduction 
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Welcome to my second OST FAQ, after getting various feedback from my previous
    OST FAQ, I decided to go all out in my next one, hence I created the 8 Bit
    OST Guide. In doing so I spend ALOT of time gathering information from the
    game by myself with a notebook until 3 in the morning. Yes, that may seem
    sad, but I'm out to please ;) 
    
    As usual you've got the track listing and your basic track guide, like 
    everyone else, afterward, It gets a little diferrent, this is where I spend 
    all the time. I listed the tracks again, but this time I've listed every 
    single time the track is played in the game =O Pretty cool eh?
    
    Secondly, I've done a Game Track guide listing in what order the tracks play
    in the game order! It's all pretty straight forward, so I hope you enjoy the
    guide. 
    
    A final note, any errors, suggestions or advice you may or may wish to send
    me, my address is talking_cows@hotmail.com. Thanks!

    O.4 Track Listing 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now, this is the first new addition to my 8 Bit OST FAQ technique! I listed 
    every single time each track is played in the game, there are guaranteed to be
    Spoilers, so I recommended you DON'T read this until you have completed the 
    main game. I may also note, nobody is perfect, I might have missed a few 
    scenes so if I have, please e-mail me and let me know, I'll be sure to give
    you credit. One last note, if you're wondering where all that FMV music is
    about 90% of it is on the OST PLUS, not this version. Well hope you enjoy.

    O.5 Game Track List
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    And here is my second new technique! I listed every track in the ORDER it 
    plays in the game, (Yes it did tell an extremely long time). Now tracks
    from both the Original Sound Track and the Original Sound Track PLUS play
    through at the game. I haven't listed Boss Music or Stage music more then
    once because it's pretty obvious where it plays, boss music in boss battles
    and stage music in stage music. It's all pretty straight forward so I hope 
    you enjoy!

    English Lyrics
    
    Final Fantasy IX - Melodies of Life 
    Music By: Nobuo Uematsu
    Peformed by: Emiko Shiratori
    
    Alone for awhile I've been searching through the dark 
    For traces of the love you left inside my lonely heart 
    To weave by picking up the pieces that remain 
    Melodies of life—love's lost refrain 
    
    Our paths they did cross, though I cannot say just why 
    We met, we laughed, we held on fast, and then we said goodbye 
    And who'll hear the echoes of stories never told? 
    Let them ring out loud till they unfold 
    
    In my dearest memories, I see you reaching out to me 
    Though you're gone, I still believe that you can call out my name 
    
    A voice from the past, joining yours and mine 
    Adding up the layers of harmony 
    And so it goes, on and on 
    Melodies of life 
    To the sky beyond the flying birds—forever and beyond 
    
    So far and away, see the bird as it flies by 
    Gliding through the shadows of the clouds up in the sky 
    I've laid my memories and dreams upon those wings 
    Leave them now and see what tomorrow brings 
    
    In your dearest memories, do you remember loving me? 
    Was it fate that brought us close and now leaves me behind? 
    
    A voice from the past, joining yours and mine 
    Adding up the layers of harmony 
    And so it goes, on and on 
    Melodies of life 
    To the sky beyond the flying birds—forever and beyond 
    
    If I should leave this lonely world behind 
    Your voice will still remember our melody 
    Now I know we'll carry on 
    Melodies of life 
    Come circle round and grow deep in our hearts 
    As long as we remember

    Comments: About 90% of the games FMV music plus a few remixes and some of 
    the music in the game that didn't make it onto the OST, including Kuja's
    Desert Palace music and another version of Eiko's Theme 'Daughter of 
    Madain Sari.' The tracks pretty much tell what where they are in the game.
