Awesome Music: Touhou

"ZUN traded his artistic talent so he could compose awesome music"
Youtube commentator

The Touhou Project really gets a lot of great pieces of music for being made up by a single guy with a synthesizer. To put the sheer number of remix CDs in perspective, there is a torrent which weighs over one terabyte (specifically 1.2 TB or 1,350,284,461,649 bytes) of over 3000 Touhou remixes, and that only includes the ones that the (English-speaking) maintainers of the torrent have added. It would take centuries to download over dial-up, and it's getting bigger as more remixes come around.

For the music of its sister series Seihou, go here.

  • PC98 Era — Covers the music from Highly Responsive to Prayers, Story of Eastern Wonderland, Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream, Lotus Land Story, and Mystic Square.
  • Early Windows Era — Covers the music from Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, Perfect Cherry Blossom, Immaterial and Missing Power, Imperishable Night, Phantasmagoria of Flower View and Shoot The Bullet.
  • Modern Windows Era — Covers the music from Mountain of Faith, Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, Subterranean Animism, Undefined Fantastic Object, Hisoutensoku, Double Spoiler, Great Fairy Wars, Ten Desires, Hopeless Masquerade, and Double Dealing Character.
  • Other Works — Covers the music from official non-game works plus various fanworks.


...By now you've probably realized that pretty much every song ZUN has composed is on this list somewhere. Which is why Touhou is so awesome.

Fun facts:
  • Simply Googling "crowning music of awesome" (with or without quotes) will lead you to THIS PAGE as one of the top three results (the others being the main Crowning Music of Awesome page, and the Video Games).
  • Most Touhou themes have somewhere between 60-200 covers.

And for those interested: on The 1.2 TB song collection. WARNING: As of this edit, the sheer size of the torrent breaks several torrent clients. You may need to use other Bittorrent clients instead.note
