For me it's really any of the starting zones I've spent a bit of time in. When I first started WoW I made an Orc Shaman and played up to level 10. Durotar's zone music is super memorable of my first WoW moments. After that, I've played Human Paladin several times so Elywnn and Westfall bring back a whole bunch of memories...
I'd have to agree with you on Dun Morogh. My very first character was a dwarf so that music hits me in the feels. It's closely followed by elwynn forest though.
I kinda am more partial to the cities. Mostly Thunder Bluff and Stormwind. But honorable mention to the troll music like at Senjin Village.
Night Elf Druid - Gerahel
Troll Shaman - Gensei
Ashenvale is pretty pretty as far as a mind-rapturing's track can be stated as an effective one.
It lingers so well in the mind and is, abstractly so, more than a mere song, rather like the region itself singing its truth to whoever may have ventured under the canopy.
That is, until the drums of war coming from the barrens below are brought in for a resounding elven bloodbath, which is doomed to come upon these barkshaggers' lands.
*Worthless attempt at worsening the grudges between factions, considering they are already willing to catapult a grandma or a newborn if it means chipping further away at the wall of a foe.*
Pesky warmonger me !

Mulgore and Stranglethorn Vale are my two favorites aswell!
In order, my favorite are: Thunderbluff, Shimmering Flats, Burning Steppes, Stranglethorn Vale, and Tanaris. I actually have a playlist on spotify. Helps me work from time to time, since I've associated that music with "grinding".
I agree. Ironforge is a super close contender as far as cities go. For actual zones, I'll say either Barrens, Elwynn Forest, or Ashenvale.
From the slackened maw of the beast can only come chaos and destruction. Defend your people!

There is only one (and this is coming from a staunch Hordist):
I'm an Horde main, I hate Night Elves with all my heart, but the best ambient music is surely the Teldrassil one
Hydraxian Waterlords - RP - EU
- Fendor - Tauren Shaman
- Ildebrando - Dwarf Hunter
- Osandiron - Dwarf Priest
For straight up nostalgia I mainly remember the Durotar/Barrens music. After that I mostly listened to my own music outside of the game.
I didn't play an Undead much during actual Vanilla, but having played one a bit on a pserver I really dug the Brill Inn music. It's a weird song, and it's cool that they kept it unique to exactly one building.
Winterspring for sure. It feels cold, you get the crunch of the snow under your boots, the ambience is quiet and reserved. They captured the deafening silence of a snowed-over landscape perfectly.
