What's your favorite piece of music in WoW?

General Discussion
Culling of Strath, the gauntlet portion.

The translation of the chanting for it is pretty chilling, but really cool.
Toss up between Nightsong (Teldrasill) and the Kharazan Opera House
The music in Crimson Hall in ICC.

Shadowmoon Valley and Gorgrond in WoD, just think its great
While I enjoy the music from basically all of Wrath, Mountains of Thunder from Storm Peaks and Totems of the Grizzlemaw from Grizzly Hills would have to be my favorites... Rise of the Vrykul would be my third favorite.
I'm tied between 2 choices....the modified Nightsong they used for the Val'sharah epilogue with Ysera...and the one they used in the Anduin cinematic.

The modified Nightsong, coupled with the cinematic, STILL makes me scream in fevered pain.

And the Anduin cinematic music made my heart go sad...or at least, until the streamer Bahjeera chose to mock it.
Zul'Drak zone music. Darkest and grittiest zone of WotLK. The tribal music, deranged trolls, twisted scourge. So underappreciated
The Undercity because of nostalgia mostly.
Grizzly Hills and Arthas' theme - Invincible. Wrath had the best music.
I could literally be here forever. There's so many pieces in this game that I've fallen in love with.

Special mention to Forge of Souls just because I remember thinking it was so out of place and it gets a chuckle out of me anytime I hear it. For those hearing it for the first time, yes this actually plays in WoW.

Aside from the obvious Grizzly hills.

Nightsong https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7G6FfKXvZX8

Storm Peaks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38TA-X0dXr4&t=215s

Arathi Highlands https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URh8ca89olM

pretty much this
I'm fond of the music in belf areas, the Undercity, and Sylvanas' Lament.

My least favorite music? The stuff playing in Felwood and Eastern Plaguelands. I always turn it off when there--sorry Blizz, but "whomp...whomp...whomp...WAHHHHHH" is not creepy or atmospheric, just annoying.
Mist of Pandaria soundtrack.

All of it.
Totems of the Grizzlemaw - WotLK soundtrack

The night elf music in Teldrassil, Dark Shore and Ashenvale... Uh wait most of those places are all gone now... ::sadface:: Ok very ::sadface::


I'm still in that area now. I haven't done the Burning Tree storyline yet. When that happens I will be as sad as you are.
Castaways, the goblin theme

It's just such an amusing unique song in the game, with that fun instrumentation and the weird developments. Definitely fitting for the goblins. Composer was having fun with that one. The only songs that compare imo are the dive bar theme and the brewfest theme. Brewfest for sheer silliness, Dive Bar for catchy instrumentation.

Brewfest: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1r5BjKTntA
Dive bar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSE7dDZHGvQ
I still love the original Stormwind music as you walk into the city
Dazar'alor, Highmountain, most of the title screen musics
