hi, i am new here. i saw this small forum of my favorite game(ys1 and 2 only) and decided to join. i don't know if this has been said before, but it is very interesting. The music of the last boss in Ys 4 was a ripoff from yngwie's "far beyond the sun". i happen to discover this a few months ago while playing "mask of the sun" with an emu. i haven't played the tgfx version, but have been told it is the same song. here is a clip from the original: www.onlinerock.com/musicians/kako/yngwie_malmsteen_-_rising_force_-_02_-_far_beyond_the_sun.mp3

Actually, the regular boss music in Dawn of Ys is Ygnwie Malmsteen's song. My friend discovered it a number of years ago, I was at his house, cycling thru cd's for stuff to sample in Sound Forge, & was playing the Ys 4 music, & that song came on, he immediatly jumped out of his chair, & grabbed his Yngwie cd, & showed me the original version. It's slightly different, in that, it's shorter then Yngwie's, & there is less guitar unfortunatly, but, it's a nice tribute to him though! What I'd really like to hear/see, is either Joe Satriani, or Vinnie Moore do an Ys soundtrack, my goodness, that would rock, since, those 2 are where alot of that japanese guitar rock come from, whether it be in Ys, or Lords of Thunder, or Sapphire, the stylings are identical, if you haven't heard there stuff(or even Steve Vai or Dream Theater) I suggest you check them out. Hey, maybe Konami will get one of them, to redo the Ys 6 music? Doubtful, but, that is a redone soundtrack, I'd accept!
yngwie's music would fit perfectly for Ys. there are a lot of similarities between yngwie's music and Ys' music. vinnie and satch are cool, but they are more bluesy. Ys' music is more classical baroque.btw, i like dreamtheater, especially "awake" and "images and words". you have good taste. do you play guitar?

I wish I played guitar. I'm more of a general artist, in that, I have a good ear, & put a keyboard in front of me, & I can make an orchestra. Personally, I mainly an underground hip hop head......not the crap you hear on the radio mind you, like Jay Z or Puff Daddy, I'm talking about intelligent music, where it's not blinging, & full of foul language(not that there isn't any, unfortunatly, but, some I listen to, keep it totally clean). Aceyalone's Book of Human Language, seems to be THE album, that gets anybody who doesn't like hip hop(or rap for that matter), or even hates the stuff(like my friend Brandon, who got me into Dream Theater & Satriani), into Hip Hop(funny, my friend Brandon even now likes stuff I don't like hip hop wise, & he used to HATE the stuff). But, obviously, I'm not close minded like a lot of Hip Hop heads, partially because of playing Turbo games......alot, & getting into the styles of music in Ys & the Thunder series, & Loom(which got me into classical), also, believe it or else, the Wu-tang Clan got me into other music, since alot of their stuff if based on a HUGE variety of music, so, I like alot of stuff. The Suikoden series has gotten me kinda into Irish music for example! I would love to do my own version of Ys songs myself, but, I don't have the right equipment...yet bwahaha!

Actually Yuzo Koshiro composed music for the original PC-88 versions, not the Turbo games. Anyhoo, you're pretty nice on the guitar! That church song, where did you find it? At first I thought it was going to be some variation of the church in Ys 3, but, unless I'm thinking of a different song, that church one is different....I don't know.
so the song was for ys1. sorry for bothering, but do you know where they were going to use the song, or was it just a random name. i donft remember any goddess church in the games ifve played (sms and pc versions). i suggest you check this link, itfs about the original post. someone asked yngwie about the song. check out the second question. pretty boring answer www.yngwie.org/news/Answers.html
