    O.1 Introduction 
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Well welcome to first FAQ, I thought I'd start with something nice simple like 
    a Soundtrack FAQ. I also thought I'd pay tribute to my dear friend Nobuo 
    Uemastsu. Guru and god of the video game music world, and FFIII is some of his 
    finest work I thougth I'd give you a nice detour to some truly amazing VG 
    music.
    
    Now I've done my best and I hope this FAQ will be helpful for you if you've 
    searching for a particular track in the game. Unfortunately the guide may 
    contain what you think are *SPOILERS* but that is unfortunately unavoid. If I
    was to create a Music FAQ without spoilers the guide wouldn't be very helpful. 
    So I wouldn't recommend reading the guide unless you've completed the game or 
    if you don't mind reading minor spoilers.
    
    
    I could create both a Spoiler and Non - Spoiler version like MarcelLionheart 
    has with his Star Ocean Music FAQ, but personally I found the Non - Spoilers 
    version too unspecific and it a really pain find exactly what I wanted. 
    For example; 
    
    Non Spoiler -  The Magic House - 2:34 (Town Music) 
    
    Since there are a few towns music you'd spend unnecessary time searching for 
    the right one.
    
    Spoilers - (The Magic House - 2:34 - Is Played: In Jidoor World of Ruin) 
    
    This is much more specific and the reader will hopefully have a much easier 
    time searching for what they are looking for. 
    
    I also included a 'Soundtrack Version' section, since there are few versions 
    of this soundtrack. So if you're planning on buying the soundtrack I suggest 
    checking the section to make sure that you get the soundtrack that you're 
    after.
    
    Well that's enough rambling from me, if you have any further questions,advice 
    for the FAQ or anything involving the Music of this game, I'm available at 
    talking_cows@hotmail.

    O.2 Track List
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    I thought we'd start simple, I've simply listed all the tracks on each disk of 
    the Soundtrack with the disk and track running time besides the title. The 
    tracks are normally in order of events that occur in the game, so all the early 
    level music will be early in the soundtrack. However, some tracks will be 
    placed later,even though they are heard early on in the game.

    Well, it isn't a song as such, but it still has lyrics, so I posted it for the

     Aria Di Mezzo Carattere Lyrics
    O-------------------------------O
    
     Oh my hero, so far away now.
     Will I ever see your smile?
     Love goes away, like night into day.
     It's just a fading dream...
     I'm the darkness, you're the stars.
     Our love is brighter than the sun.
     For eternity, for me can there be, only you, my chosen one...
     Must I forget you?
     Our solemn promise?
     Will autumn take the place of spring?
     What shall I do?
     I'm lost without you.
     Speak to me once more!
     We must part now. My life goes on.
     But my heart won't give you up.
     Ere I walk away, let me hear you say.
     I meant as much to you...
     So gently, you touched my heart.
     I will be forever yours.
     Come what may, I won't age a day.
     I'll wait for you, always...

    version have been recreated them with a Piano. The tracks from the CD are 
    listed above. I might also add that the orginal print is extremely rare, the 
    CD ceased printing several years ago, so you'll have a hell of time trying to 
    get old of even an used copy.
