while maybe not this exact song the general sound could be used as a low volume background music for a particular zone or intro/main menu sound...

for example the music in the start of oblivion is a song that plays as a video flies around the world... same in two worlds and earth 2160 does the same... all vocalized songs.

Though use of this song or sound for entire world I would not recommend unless you created an alternating or controllable sountrack.

In the case of zone you could compare to the music played in rivervale in eq or the misty thicket... which adds a good deal of character to an area.

Thats classic stuff there NightShadow. A little too classic and kiddy for the Game though. I want to reach out to an older audience with Omnisystem. So I think elevator music may fit the bill. Yall have any more cool pieces to share?

well wasnt refering to that exact song was showing how the song was used for a single zone or two for environment rather than as a constant sound.  And also rivervale had the coirniest most upbeat music in the game... i prefered the music in neriak and kelethin myself.
