Birth By Sleep's "Dearly Beloved" because of how melancholic, yet hopeful it sounds. (I actually wrote a REALLY long comment-thing for KHI some years ago about BBS' "Dearly Beloved" back when I was just a bright-eyed member and I had fallen in love with the song so :x I really REALLY love it)

After that it is KH3D's "Dearly Beloved" because it is so fun and cute, but still holds a lot of emotion.

And then one that isn't listed because it doesn't appear in any games, "Concert Paraphrase on Dearly Beloved". One of my favorite arrangements of "Dearly Beloved" that I adore.

Hmm you know thinking about it and listening to them all no version of Dearly Beloved stands out from the others to me so I guess I don't have a favorite. All that comes to mind is how much I hated the Re:Coded arrangement when I first heard it through my DS.

Wow those piano and guitar versions were really good! I think the piano is the reason I like CoM's the most. BBS is a close second because of how sad it seems.

No love for the Days version?
It sets up the mood for the game perfectly, and the woodwind is amazing. It's the saddest rendition IMO but it's quality on the DS is meh.

The BBS version ties for #1, it's just beautiful as anyone else can tell you.

I'd say Birth by Sleep's after hearing them all again. ;n; So pretty~

And Birth by Sleep's Dearly Beloved plays during Blank Points, so maybe that's why I enjoy it most. :3

It's a tie between BBS, kh3d and Re:CoM for me. I also hold kh1 high up there cause of nostalgia. ;u;

It's a tie between the original, KH2's and 3D's. They were all so beautiful~

Definitely the BBS Version for me despite loving them all.
This version playing during the most intense part of Blank Points certainly influenced the decision though.

BBB's Dearly Beloved. It's the most varied and the instrumentals (dat violin) are incredibly reflective of BBB's overall somber themes.

The more I listen to it, the more I love coded's arrangement. It so classic with the French horn and piano, and not as over the top and all over the place like some others, and it's got enough pep to make me not want to cry my eyeballs out either. Though picking a favorite is really a crime as they're all gorgeous pieces of work.

I really wouldn't say it's my favorite, but I've been listening to it a lot lately. Coded, KH1, and Days are my upper tier though. They circulate the number #1 spot.

Although my personal favorite iteration of Dearly Beloved is KINGDOM HEARTS 3D Dream. Drop. Distance.'s version, I have to admit that, Birth by Sleep's (the wining track) is AWEEESOOOME. XP

I'd have to go with Kingdom Hearts 1. It's the one I listen to most and gives me so many soothing feelings. Might take a listen to BBS Dearly Beloved. Since, it has the highest vote and I don't remember how it sounds. xD

It's kind of difficult for me to decide since they were all composed differently in different manners but...

The most soothing Dearly Beloved to listen to were KH1, KH Re:coded, and Days (1.5's version) because the instruments had less ruffness from synths/etc but I'm sure this may change once Yoko rearranges the other tracks in 2.5. The most dramatically composed were KH2 and BBS. The most playful was KH3D. The most melodramatic for me was KH2's Reprise and it's also my most favorite of the Reprises.

Easy KH1. Because it was soothing and had wave crashing sounds along with it.

Any of the multiple arrangements by Kyle Landry. From the games though, I was originally going to say Kingdom Hearts II. I'm going to stand by that decision though until I listen to all t he dearly beloved's. There are some I haven't heard yet and others I haven't heard in a long time. I'll make a final decision later.

EDIT: Probably a toss up between 3D and KH2.
