"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 weights one terabyte (specifically 1.1 TiB or 1,203,075,354,327 bytes) of over 3000 Touhou remixes, and that only includes the ones that the (English-speaking) maintainers of the torrent have added. (that 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.

  • Touhou PC 98 -- Covers the music from Highly Responsive to Prayers, Story of Eastern Wonderland, Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream, Lotus Land Story, and Mystic Square.
  • Touhou Windows One -- 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.
  • Touhou Windows Two -- Covers the music from Mountain of Faith, Scarlet Weather Rhapsody, Subterranean Animism, Undefined Fantastic Object, Hisoutensoku, Double Spoiler, Great Fairy Wars and Ten Desires.
  • Touhou -- 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 fact: simply Googling "crowning music of awesome" (with or without quotes) will lead you to THIS PAGE as the 2nd result. (The first being the main Crowning Music of Awesome page)[1]

And for those interested: on The 1.1 TiB song collection. WARNING: As of this edit, the sheer size of the torrent breaks the UTorrent client. Use other bittorrent clients instead.[2]


  1. Actually it's fluctuating between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd result, but it's mostly on the 2nd (1st is quite rare and 3rd is even rarer).
  2. However, all the audio is encoded via TTA, which is only playable by some music players with a plug in.
