Best part is when that white haired dude thrusts his big hard sword into that pretty girl in pink. Priceless

Never has a game made me feel so much emotion, this is truly classic and the story is parallel with much of what is actually going on today.

Regarding the Aeris - Aerith thing, the Japanese language doesn't have the TH sound. So Aeris is how the Japanese pronounce it, regardless of how it's spelled in English.
Report as inappropriate
It's always been Aerith in Japan; it was a bit of a mistranslati o n in the english version that resulted in Aeris. Her original name was probably meant to show her as a foil to Sephiroth. In any case, it looks like Square-Enix is deciding to make it Aerith across the whole series.

The name Aerith may have been a glitch in alot of the copies of the orgional game however they did continue it into crisis core so i beleive they preffered that name.

16 years ago when I first played this I knew it was special. Still f**king love it.

The name "Aerith" is a glitch in a lot of copies of the game that didn't get fixed. Her name is "Aeris".
Report as inappropriate
I never had the chance to buy the game. I know about the tragic death of Aerith, and I was saddened by it. I looked at a lot of posts about her on You Tube.

Aerith...suc h a beautifully woman cursed with the promise of love. This song reminds me of her and Zack together at the church.

I love all final fantasy music wish they had copy rights to all 13 game albums I love to Zankerband and Terra's theme and the promise are favorites

Best song ever wish i could find a soundtrack of just FF7 music and i would have to listen to all day and be emotionally moved to do something that would fit the music of my fav genre of gaming

I got to see this performed live at the Distant Worlds concert in Dallas. Very touching.
@ Juan Carlos Rivera In an age where game consoles where on their infancy ... seriously?.. . . y o u have to be pretty young, 'cause your frame of reference is seriously lacking. Talk to me once you've owned a couple of pong machines and an Atari or two. Seems like you've missed out on the 8-bit and 16-bit generation of systems too. Man, how long did the 16-bit generation last?...

No matter how I'm feeling this never fails to make me feel like the end of the world is coming.

Sigh, never fails; someone always has to start slicing onions when this song comes on.

this song fits Aeris perfectly! but it just makes me a bit sad when i hear it ^^

@buck.mason You are so lucky! But I think I'd combust from the awesomeness. I had near-meltdow n watching Fellowship of the Ring live, and I don't have the same sentimental, deep-rooted attachment to that story or soundtrack like I do for FF7. @minjapa04 Me too! If they would really only redo the game, graphics ONLY, and not touch the storyline at all, that'd be so great.

man heard this literally thousands of times and this still makes me sad. in a good way

Everytime I play the game I always feel so sad during this scene. This musical piece makes Aeris one of the most memorable characters for the game and Sephiroth one of the greastest game villains at the same time. I wish they would update the game with new graphics without changing the story.

I love it.
It is one of the most heartwarming song possibly made. :)x 1,000

One of the most touching songs in gaming history. The story of Aeris is as beautiful as they come. In an age where game consoles where on their infancy this game, story and music where just way ahead of their time. Every time I hear this son I get goosebumps.
