Blue Fields
Trouble with the audio sample?

"Blue Fields" is a theme from Final Fantasy VIII. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu.

"Blue Fields" is often considered to be the main theme of Final Fantasy VIII due to appearing as its overworld theme. However, this definition has been rejected by Nobuo Uematsu, who doesn't consider Final Fantasy VIII to have a main theme like the rest of the Final Fantasy games. "Blue Fields" is exclusive as it only appears as the overworld theme, and its motif is not present anywhere else in the game.[1]

"Blue Fields" is a slow, melancholic song, contrasting with many older overworld themes. It features a xylophone playing the central melody of the piece, being the first time a synthesizer did not fulfill the role.
