Epona's Song

Posted By at 9:25 PM on Thursday April 17, 2008

Little Malon, always dreaming… keeping her head in the clouds with the responsibility of the whole ranch in her hands. Like Marin, she never let go of her dreams. This is a ballad she sang for her friend Epona, a pony who may have understood her better than a human ever could.

Shigeru Miyamoto:

“I’ve always been a fan of country music, including people like Emmylou Harris, so I insisted on having a songstress in the game. I changed the ranch girl Malon into a songstress so the horses were attracted to her because of her song. However, this didn’t really suit her dialogue at the time. Originally we had her singing alone in the middle of the ranch, but halfway through we changed it so she went to the castle, but then she didn’t sing anymore. It was fun to consider those kinds of things.”

エポナ、エポナ、そばにおいで Epona, Epona, come to my side
二人でいれば、寂しく何かない If we’re together there’s no loneliness
だから、エポナ、ここにいて Because, Epona, you’re here with me
お前だけを守ってあげる I’ll protect only you
こうしていると思い出す Standing here, I remember
あの日の夜明け The dawn of that day
月が沈み、太陽と The moon sinking, you were born
お前が生まれた With the rising sun
エポナ、エポナ、そばにおいで Epona, Epona, come to my side
二人でいれば、悲しく何かない If we’re together there’s no sadness
だから、エポナ、ここにいて Because, Epona, you’re here with me
私の歌を聞いていてね Keep listening to my song

宮本茂:

「ぼくは、カントリーミュージックが好きなんで、 エミール・ハリスが、なので、どうしても ゲームのなかに「歌姫」が必要だと主張してね。 牧場の娘を歌姫にして、歌姫の歌を歌うと、 牧場の馬が自分になついてくれる、ということにしました。 でも、途中から話のつじつまが合わなくなってきて(笑)、 もともとは牧場でひとりで歌を歌っている設定だったんだけど、 途中からお城へ出張してくれることにして、 ついでに歌も歌ってない、ってことになっちゃった。 そういうの考えるのは、楽しかったですね。」

    astonishingly beautiful … almost didn’t watch it because i was afraid it would not live up to the quality of (nearly) all things Zelda
