Ocarina Songs [Ocrna]

There are a lot of songs you can learn from the game, and all of these songs
are likely to be used a lot.  Here's a list of the songs in the game, how to 
play them, and where and/or when to get them.  There's also a song that's 
optional, but can be used to get extra items.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Zelda's Lullaby

When to get: After speaking to Princess Zelda for the first time, Impa teaches
you this.

How to play: Left C, Up C, Right C, Left C, Up C, Right C

How to use: This has many uses.  You usually play this while standing on a
Triforce mark on the ground.  It does many things.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Epona's Song

When to get: After visiting Princess Zelda, head into Lon Lon Ranch and talk to
Malon three times.  Equip the Ocarina in front of her (after she says something
about singing a song together) and she'll teach you this song.

How to play: Up C, Left C, Right C, Up C, Left C, Right C

How to use: When near a cow, playing this will fill one of your Empty Bottles
with Lon Lon Milk.  Also, as Adult Link and after getting Epona, playing this 
song will call her to you.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Saria's Song

When to get: After visiting Princess Zelda, go to Lost Woods.  Follow the
entrances where the music is played loudest until you reach the Sacred Forest 
Meadow.  Kill the Wolfos to unlock the gate, then head through the evil Deku 
Scrub-infested maze to the end.  Go up some stairs, and talk to Saria and 
she'll teach you her song.

How to play: Down C, Right C, Left C, Down C, Right C, Left C

How to use: Basically used for many things, including getting you a Piece of
Heart.

Sun's Song

When to get: Make sure you have Zelda's Lullaby, then head into the Graveyard
in Kakariko Village.  Head to the large gravestone with a Triforce mark on it.
Stand on the Triforce mark on the ground in front of it, and play Zelda's 
Lullaby to open the grave.  Head down, kill the Keese, head through the door, 
pass the Redeads, head through the next opening, and read the inscription on 
the wall.  This is a poem, along with notes of a song.  Follow the notes and 
you'll learn the Sun's Song.

How to play: Right C, Down C, Up C, Right C, Down C, Up C

How to use: Freezes Redeads in their tracks, and also lets you change the time
of day anywhere.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Song of Time

When to get: After acquiring all three Spiritual Stones, head towards Hyrule
Castle and a scene will show Zelda and Impa escaping on a white horse, Zelda 
throws the Ocarina of Time towards Link but misses, and Ganondorf appears on 
his black stallion.  After the scene is over, head into the moat to grab the 
Ocarina, at which point Zelda will telepathically teach you this song.

How to play: Right C, A, Down C, Right C, A, Down C

How to use: Pretty much only used to open the Door of Time in the Temple of
Time, in conjunction with the three Spiritual Stones.  Another minor use is

Song of Storms

When to get: Visit the windmill man in Kakariko Village as Adult Link and he'll
tell you about the time a young boy with an Ocarina came in and messed up his
windmill by playing a song.  Take out the Ocarina and he'll play that song that
angers him so.  Follow the notes and you'll have learned this song!

How to play: A, Down C, Up C, A, Down C, Up C

Bottom of the Well mini-dungeon for Young Link, and for discovering Secret 
Caves.  Playing this song makes it rain and thunder.
