    Replace the BGM in FF with popular music

    Have there ever been moments in Final Fantasy games where you wish the music had been replaced with a popular song you know and love? Mention it here! Please include YouTube links to the song if possible so others may hear the songs if they don't know them.

    "Taking it to the Streets", The Doobie Brothers www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&...
    This song is all about standing up together for what you believe in, and would fit very well with a great many scenes in FF, but one of the moments that especially comes to mind where this would fit is when Celes picks up Edgar for the party and finally begins to move against Kefka.

    "Highlander (The One)", Lost Horizon <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OffF0e2h4TU" title="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OffF0e2h4TU" target="_blank">www.youtube.com/watch?v=OffF0e2h4TU
    </a>Simply put, this song kicks ass. I would love it if any time Zidane or Squall (personally don't know if Cloud is awesome enough for it [img]/tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-tongue-out.gif[/img]) to have this play for all of their Limit/Trance moves, specifically this part: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OffF0...ailpage#t=635s

    I've heard the full 11 minutes of that Highlander song before. Very awesome.


    So if I changed a few songs it would be:


    The Jenova battle theme to Time On My Side from Homestuck. Awesome battle song that would fit so well.

    Another Homestuck song that would make a great Boss Theme in FFVIII. I love this song and play it when I'm fighting a boss with lame music or just want to give myself a boost of skill.
