Song of Passing
|Song of Passing|
Change from day to night and viceversa
Conducted on the Wind Waker, the Song of Passing 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.
The "Song of Passing" allows Link to advance instantly from day to night and vice versa. It 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 only functions when conducted in areas where the sun or moon are visible, meaning it will not work indoors or while exploring a dungeon. It also cannot be used throughout the duration of Link's search for Jabun or inside the Forsaken Fortress before it is abandoned, due to Ganondorf's magic blocking its effects.

- "That magical dance that changes day into night and night into day... If I could only recall the rhythm. Oh, the RHYTHM! Then I could dance it perfectly! [...] Unh, unh, CHA! Unh, unh, CHA! 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)
