** The 5th Opening [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YNViujuP4Y "Rain"]] by SID is too beautiful for words. The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8GIo_YDHkU MIDI version]] is also incredibly awesome, with the MIDI doubling as Heartwarming Music, especially if you consider the meaning behind the lyrics. Special mention should probably go to the use of it in Episode 61 of ''Brotherhood''. The episode begins with it conspicuously absent; fitting, since this is the equivalent of [[DarkestHour Chapter 104]]. [[spoiler:Everyone is "dead" and Father appears to have won]]. It doesn't play until [[spoiler:Hohenheim's circle activates that reverses the whole thing, returning everyone to life]], and that song playing over the scene just about doubles the already-high levels of [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome awesome]] and [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]]. The use of the 5th Opening at the end of Episode 63 is incredibly satisfying as a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}} AND one of the biggest {{Tear Jerker}}s of all time...

* The song "Brothers" is heart wrenching and beautiful at the same time. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgZbd1f4x98 How can I repay you brother of mine, how can I expect you to forgive...]] Yes, that ''is'' Ed's voice actor singing and playing piano. Actually, the song after that (Nothing I Won't Give) is meant to be an original ImageSong for Ed, and it's quite badass.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdEm7-mIdP0 "Let It All Out"]] by Miho Fukuhara. It starts playing after [[spoiler: Winry got close to killing Scar for murdering her parents. When Winry starts crying after Ed talks to her, the song plays literally saying "let it all out".]] This moment said so much about the series in general especially because it is a cathartic moment in the series. So much turmoil had built up to that point where there is a good emotional release to drive the series forward.

** The first opening theme [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEaPDdhPsWE "again"]], which, like "Brothers", is both heart-wrenching and beautiful.

* The track appropriately titled [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsNRdZ-lUB0&ab_channel=videfabul1 Philosopher's Stone]] is a haunting, mysterious piece, full of airy percussion, that's perfect for the scenes with revelations about alchemy, the homunculi and, of course, the Stone.
* A lot of the big brassy songs used for scenes involving the military. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJWlqDisISE&ab_channel=videfabul1 Fortify]] is used in a lot of battle scenes, and in revelations about the military's crimes, and make it clear just how powerful it is. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqBIQP5MjP4 "Invasion"]] (if the YT link no longer works, it's also on the first OST album) also accompanies a lot of those scenes, but also some lighterhearted moments at Military HQ, which fits with how its mood is more ambiguous than the mightier, and angrier, "Fortify"
* One of my favorites though is "Kei," or "Devotion," which is used for a lot of the scenes in and about Ishbal, especially the ones involving Scar. You can listen to it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GowvJQvOcTA&index=6&list=PL9CD1A1D6FAA8370C&ab_channel=entrevide5 here]]. The hymn-like sound to it represents Scar's devotion to his religion and his mission of revenge, and makes the whole thing feel very epic. Especially in the anime, which often omits the organ and just uses the choral track a cappella, which sounds very old and haunting.

* The use of Chopin's "Tristesse" Etude in the series finale. It's a really common choice in anime (used, among other places, in the finale of ''{{Baccano}}'' and several scenes in ''Anime/YourLieInApril''), but it's particularly well-placed here, especially given the title of the piece (French for "sadness") contrasted with its hopeful mood. It perfectly fits the bittersweet ending, [[spoiler: where the brothers are separated but hopeful and fighting for their reunion, Roy and Riza are closer than ever even after he was seriously wounded in his attempt to overthrow the Führer, and so on]].
