Sometimes, MIDI can work better than expected...
----
* {{Runescape}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2CLZDXEsYg MIDI power!]] comes apparent in "Route Of The Problem," which is the second in a series of amazing tracks, [[ThemeAndVariations all based on the same theme.]] The first is "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnCir8Jm91Q Alternative Root]]" and the third is "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PoL9dESya8 The Route of All Evil]]."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSII5tfe-Ug Temple Desecrated]] is among the best songs heard in the game. It plays when you face down the Balance Elemental in [[WhamEpisode While Guthix Sleeps]].
* Other good tracks are [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwh4SJLD1fw Battle of Souls]], which plays when you fight [[ThatOneBoss Nomad]] in Nomad's Requiem; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHJqJ0mG9OE The Sound of Guthix]] (plays on your way to the Stone of Jas (also WGS)); [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrEii-P9vGk Face Off]] plays during the fight with [[FaceHeelTurn Zanik]] in The Chosen Commander; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSBrIlepYuc But We Can Fight]] plays at the WhamLine of The Chosen Commander; and lastly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiHA8PzO-_o The Void Stares Back]] plays when you fight the [[EldritchAbomination Pest Queen.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVYwn_UQJlk Return of Lucien]] takes Temple Desecrated to a next level.
* Another from The Chosen Commander, during the cutscene with Zanik in the caverns, and then after you defeat [[spoiler: the avatar of Bandos]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgGOC7g1Hcs The music makes things even more heartwarming.]]
* You will never forget the moment you step into the Duel Arena Hospital and hear [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIy2lQDuTzI this.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUOzHNeMyrU Destiny]], unlocked at the start of the game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5epqoGupPb0 Christmas Caverns]]. For a Christmas song, it manages to reach the heights of numerous modern Christmas songs in terms of quality.
* The "Deathcon II" quest of Halloween 2011 provides "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyUGgWnIwq4 DCII Mash-up (Infinity Mix)"]], an awesome techno track mixed by the talented [[CrazyAwesome spider DJ]] Infinity, previously known as Minstrel Web. As a remix, it's actually said to bear similarity to two other great tracks, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKTS24M5GE4 Zaros Stirs"]] and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UUPhYAXn2U Zaros Zeitgeist"]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAzxtEssZ2E Upir Likhyi]] is about as rousing a boss theme as you'll ever hear.
* "One Piercing Note" is a quest designed around sound and music, and is the first quest to be entirely voice acted. When you first walk up to the abbey, you hear Valerio the troubadour playing an impressive tune. When you enter the abbey, you learn that they practice music in their worship. Their choir sings about St. Elspeth, and is also quite impressive. As you continue the quest, you'll wander between Valerio and the abbey a few times, and the music will change accordingly. At the climax of the quest, one more new track starts to play, "[[CrowningMusicOfAwesome Citharede Requiem]]". It switches between the choir singing their song about St. Elspeth, and Valerio singing outside about the woman whose death you've been investigating. The two songs complement each other ''perfectly'', providing an excellent backdrop as you chase the killer throughout the abbey.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fVyTf5pXE0 Tzhaar Supremacy I]], a fine example of a good use of heavy percussions.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGCo-LKXSuU Wending Through the Willows]], which is beautiful enough to be a ''quest reward''.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1V2J6w7iOtE Sub Way]], played during the sub chase at the end of Some Like It Cold.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XnVVWRfvLE Super Furry Animal]], the track that plays in the Big Chinchompa D&D.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33crU4uoFoc Final Showdown]], for the last battle in "Diamond in the Rough."
* They've even started updating old tracks too! The tracks "Tears of Guthix" and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=or-3YIcKTVg The Power of Tears]] have been updated along with the Tears of Guthix D&D rework.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oWvBdtlzS0 Blue Wizards]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgvJM82kIyk The Harmony of the Runes]], the reworked [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h58ws7A_Fmo Vision]], and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_nop6RW5aY Bloody Foundation]], which are all part of the two quests introducing the Signature Hero Ariane.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QebCvjnxwoI Memories of Guthix]], from The World Wakes.
* Many of the remastered tracks from the Runescape 3 update add a new level of awesome to tracks that have been around since the early days of the game.
* The updated [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRn3aMWTljM Pest Control]] music perfectly captures the chaotic nature and gravity of the fight against the alien incursion.

[[folder: Dungeoneering ]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB-phZcEw9k Born to do this]], a heroic main theme of Daemonheim. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ms_tU_VN5Gc Shadow-Forger Ihlakhizen]]'s theme puts a new take on that.
* Not to be outdone, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HegVB5aaty0 Night-gazer Khighorahk]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3zThOtRHV8 Adorno VII]], one of the furnished floor battle themes.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWl3zwrJBjA Rammernaut says hi.]]
* The track for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMbGWCt_Dtg Luminiscient Icefiend]] starts slow and ominous, then grows to a glorious (read: ''LordOfTheRings'') peak just before the end.
* Most of the Dungeoneering tracks really do fit with the atmosphere in the theme you're currently dunging on. On frozen floors there's random 'chilling' sounds showing that you are actually in a freezing area. The music is often rather slow too. In the Furnished floors the music makes you feel like you're breaking into a castle full of armed guards, hence the fast-paced themes. On the occult floors things get freaky what with all the necromancers, reanimated zombies and demons. The music is full of church organs, drums and ominous incorrehent chanting. The ambient sounds inbetween battles sound freaky too, as if the place was haunted. Finally, in the Warped floors, music becomes heavy, twisted, random and intriguing, fit with the theme of being too close to whatever grand power warps the guard dogs', rats' and brutes' bodies.
