What song do you think goes with each of the four original Phantasy Star games?

For PSI, I think "Run The World (Girls)" goes with it.

For PSII, I think "XO" by Beyonce goes with it.

For PSIII, I think "Love Me Like You Do" by Ellie Goulding goes with it.

For PSIV, I think "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus goes with it.

I've probably said this before on this forum, but "Lucky" by Radiohead always made me think of PSII. The others, I have to think about some more.

The nine inch nails song, "the mark has been made", seriously seriously sounds almost just like an arrangement of the beginning of Phantasy Star I, when it opens and says "space century 342" in the prologue as it drifts down and shows Nero dying in Alis’ arms. Seriously, you have to listen to it:

And then there is also another NIN song, titled, "The Great Collapse", which doesn't have any sort of melodic similarity to Phantasy Star II, but in name, one can't help but think of the massive collapse of society after the destruction of mother brain.

I am not good with video editing, as I'm not a digital production hobbyist or professional, but I think it would be so so awesome if "the mark has been made,” was spliced into the opening of Phantasy Star I, and made into a video on YouTube or whatever.
Anyway here is the link to "The Mark Has Been Made" once again, since it is so awesome and so so similar, at least in the opening:

Perhaps Trent Reznor is a closet Phantasy Star fan.

Quick note first: I've moved this topic to the general Classic Series forum. Seems a better fit there. Nothing to worry about, just FYI.

And here's one for PSIV, the song "Sky is Mine" by Amorphis.

I've never been really good at this but seeing how Phantasy Star 2 has such a dark story with an almighty computer ruling over everything, I can only think of this eternal classic

Aero, I don't think you can get much more spot on than that.

I'm better at pairing music with individual characters.

"The Mother We Share" for Nei:


"Personal Jesus" for Zio (the Johnny Cash cover seems most appropriate):


"One Thousand Years" for Laya the Younger (listen to this without watching the video):


"Counting Stars" for Alis:

This one might be hard to explain why it reminds me of Alis.

"Get Back Up" for Chaz:

Ah ! Sky is mine is so great ! And the song is a good choice to be tied with PSIV :)
