Song

The "Song of Passing" is a song featured in The Wind Waker.

Learning Location

Conducted on the Wind Waker, the Song of Passing is an optional melody learned which allows Link to change from day to night and night to day. It is learned on Windfall Island from the dancer Tott, who can be found on the hilltop. Once Link shows the Wind Waker to the charismatic dancer, Tott will remember the dance moves, and in return will teach the young hero the Song of Passing.[1]

Uses

This melody is especially useful to pass time while waiting for a figurine to be carved, or to change the phases of the moon. Despite its usefulness, the "Song of Passing" is the only optional song in the game.

The "Song of Passing" is a basic version of the Sun's Song from Ocarina of Time. Its directional notes are also the exact inverse of the Wind's Requiem.

That's... That's it! That's the rhythm I've been trying to recall! OH! I can feel it! I can FEEL it, guy!" — Tott (The Wind Waker)
