The Timbre of Timber

Hey, a musical list. I don't make these often. After subjecting the endlessly patient and to all manner of VGM jams on the Giant Bomb plug.dj room (found here), I've come to the realization that the best inspiration for atmospheric and memorable music tracks tend to be forested settings, if not a gigantic tree in particular. I've collated a bunch of VGM that play during forest levels - ranging from dark and foreboding to breezy and light - to highlight this phenomenon. It is by no means a complete collection, and I'm sure I'm missing some better ones out there. Comment away if you have one to add.

If you ask me, there's nothing more gangsta than listening to songs about trees.

Neat list, still listening to them all, may I suggest:

I'd also add FFXI's Sanctuary of Zi'Tah. This has replaced all other music for me when I think of a serene forest.

Good list! Castlevania IV still has one of my all-time fav soundtracks. I'd also throw in for water-themed levels generally having fantastic music. Aquatic Ambiance, from Donkey Kong Country, springs instantly to mind, as well as the theme for Big Blue from F-Zero.
