Template:Listen In most earlier games in the series, all towns used a default theme often simply called Town Theme. This trend has faded in later games as many towns now have their own unique themes.

Game Appearances

Final Fantasy

"Town" appears in this game as the first town theme. It plays in every town, and is listed as the eighth track in the NES soundtrack, and the tenth track of the first disk in the PS soundtrack. It also appears as a purchasable theme in Dissidia Final Fantasy and remixed on the Chocobo Racing Original Soundtrack under the name "White Mage's Theme". A live performance is included on the A New World: intimate music from Final Fantasy album.

Final Fantasy II

Template:Listen "Town" returns in Final Fantasy II, with a similar feel to the original Final Fantasy version. It appears as the twenty seventh track in the original NES soundtrack, and the ninth track of disk two in the PS soundtrack. It is also included on the Final Fantasy Vinyls collector's set album on the fourth disc.

Final Fantasy III

Template:Listen "My Hometown", originally called "故郷の街ウル" (Furusato no Machi Uru lit. Hometown Ur) in the Famicom version, is the town theme used most often in Final Fantasy III, appearing in all towns but three. "Time Remains", originally 古代人の村 (Kodaijin no Mura lit. Village of the Ancients) in the Famicom version, plays only in the Village of the Ancients, and "Return of the Warrior", which was originally 勇者の帰還 (Yūsha no Kikan lit. Return of the Hero), plays in Kazus and Castle Sasune after the warriors defeat Djinn, and Saronia after defeating Gigameth.

"My Hometown" is also part of the "Following the Wind" track on the Final Fantasy III: Eternal Legend of the Wind album, and is vocalized on the Final Fantasy Song Book "Mahoroba" album, called "Machi" (Town).

Japanese Rōmaji
Tobu tori no sora o miage
Nekoronda nohara
Yawarakai hizashi ga
Hoo o terashiteru
Midori no umi no sazanami
Mimi o sumashite
Yuruyaka ni nagareru
Toki ni mi o makase
Me o tojite, fukaku iki o hakidashite
Odayaka ni naru kokoro
Kokyou wa itsudemo watashi ni
Yawarakai jikan o kureru
Onaji sora no shita de
Keredo tooku hanareteru
Ima hitorikiri no machi
Sugosu hibi wa
Kibou to yume to fuan to
Soshite samishisa ga
Karamatte tama ni namida
Nagasu keredo
Osanai hi--yume ni, egaita mirai ni
Kanarazu deau tame ni
Sore made wa ima kono machi de
Jibun o shinjite susumou
Mihatenu yume o motometeru

English translation
Looking up at a sky of flying birds
Lying down in a field
Gentle sunbeams
Shining on my cheeks
Ripples of an emerald sea
I strain to hear
Going with the gentle flow
Of time
I close my eyes, take a deep breath
My heart grows tranquil
My hometown always gives me
Gentle times
Beneath the same sky
Yet far apart
Now the town is mine alone
The days I spend here
Hopes and dreams and uneasiness
And loneliness, too
All tangle together; sometimes
I let the tears flow, although
Younger days--dreams, and the future I imagined
So I can be sure I'll come across them
I'll be in this town until then
Keeping on, believing in myself
In search of boundless dreams

Final Fantasy IV

Template:Listen The song "Welcome to our Town", called 街のテーマ (Machi no Tēma lit. "Town Theme") in the Japanese soundtrack, plays in most towns in Final Fantasy IV. It is the sixth track in the official soundtrack. Arrangements of the theme are included on the Final Fantasy IV: Celtic Moon and Piano Collections: Final Fantasy IV albums. The Piano Collections version is also found on the Potion: Relaxin' with Final Fantasy album.

Mysidia does not have the normal town theme, instead playing "Mystic Mysidia". The Feymarch town area also has a different theme, "The Land of Summons". All the inhabited castles have themes of their own.
