I thought Far Away Promise and Radical Dreamers was pretty sad.

I choose corridors of time. It is hard to choose, since there're so many memorable pieces.
I like to listen to a piece over and over again, I rarely keep more than 1 song in my winamp playlist...
Yeah, some pieces are great, but I just find I can listen to COT for a whole day without getting bored.

You see I'm not taking about in game experience.

Other pieces(not in order)

Frozen Flame(RD/CC)
Another Gardov(CC) - It's so peaceful
Radical Dreamers (CC) - no one choose it? *surprised
Singing mountain(CT) - I paid more attention to it because it is an unreleased track, but at last I found I love it.
Magus Theme(CT) - Just epic, the black wind.
Schala's Theme(CT) - Like a gentle breeze.
Le Trésor Interdit(RD)
....

Times Scar would have to be my all time favorite.

I remember first hearing a MIDI of Singing Mountain on The Video Game Music Archive, and I thought it was kickass, and wondered why it wasn't in CT. I'm glad it finally made it in CTDS, but does anyone know why they didn't put in The Mysterious Laboratory (CTP Keeper's Dome)? If anything, it would definitely fit in the Temporal Research Lab in one of the Dimensional Vortices.

I have to say it's a tie between Time's Scar (my vote), Radical Dreamers (love that acoustic goodness), Singing Mountain (mysterious...), and that music boxy tune from RD. I don't remember what it was, but it was awesome.

Several pieces in RD sound like Dream Shore from CC, including the music box one.
Hmm, if I recall, it is called "Far Promise", I don't know whether it has an official name.

------------

*Edit
They don't have official names.

Yeah, I was thinking Far Promise... um... if only I had Rylan's USB cord with me. I have it on my MP3 player, Rylan, but he lacks a screen. The only way to tell what each song is is by memory.

Ah, it reminds me of another topic: http://www.chronocompendium.com/Forums/index.php/topic,6706.0.html
Although I was not thinking about this piece at that time, but maybe it was just a coincidence, this 2 pieces are both in music box style.

My vote goes to Life - Faraway Promise because it is in my opinion the most inimitable song of the Chrono soundtrack, the most inspired, that plunges me to a distorsion of melancholy and hope.
Yeah I'm definitely thinking too much but this song is just great.
And because of its undeniable impact in the game too.

I like Frog's theme- The Intro that was cut from the game version. It makes it so much better for some reason. My Runner Up's would have to be Times Scar, because I love how it goes from sad sounding to upbeat, Chrono Trigger, because it's an excellent song to describe the game, Gale from Radical Dreamers, because it's cooler than Cross's, and World Revolution. For Obvious reasons.

With all these troops who have died and are dying, "Frog's Theme (Complete)" would be quite fitting with the fact that they fought and died for something they stood for.

(Note that the song must come with the intro that was cut from the game if it is ever actually played.)

Yeah, speaking Frog's them, I like the one used in the ending CG, just like I like Shadow's theme in the ending of FF VI. A pity, both of them only last few seconds.

BTW, just searched youtube over, and found some impressive pieces.

Far Promise from Radical Dreamers.  Of all the songs Mitsuda put to 'music box' styles this one is my favorite.

For top three of each game.

CT:
Black Omen theme
Battle with Magus
Memories of Green

RD:
Far Promise (Both the music box and epilogue versions)
Star Stealing Girl (I prefer it without the Lalala from CC)
Ending theme ~ Le Tresor Interdit (Lovely guitar for using the SFC sound)

CC:
Time's Scar
Radical Dreamers
The Dream that Time Dreams (The song played during the game demo, which is a mash up of the main themes from CT and RD)
