She Loves You, Yeah Yeah Yeah

Post by purple haired Katawa Shoujo character » Sat Dec 03, 2011 6:21 pm

If Katawa Shoujo used "real" music rather than an original soundtrack, what sort of songs do you think would be used?

What sort of music do you think the girls of KS listen to?

Should music play a larger role in emphasizing the story and emotions of a VN rather than just simple background music?

Is that not why the music changes with the mood of the scene, though?

Lily would like something smooth and jazz like or even classical.

Emi would listen to pump up songs.

Rin... well she would listen to anything probably.

Hanako would listen to anything calming.

Misha would listen to something bubbly... or maybe even down with the sickness.

Shizune would lis- oh right...

I'll go with ideas from earlier threads like this one:

Shizune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dd7aqwtlPkw
Lilly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkhxCmbf2Do
Hanako: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zf5UfOuvQHQ
Emi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A67ZkAd1wmI
Rin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xp0Mk-J2Vl0
Misha: http://youtu.be/6v9at5RlFu4?t=31s
Hideaki: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTN6Du3MCgI
Yuuko: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xbjv08 ... -for_music

For everyone else... I don't know. Guile's Theme or whatever.
Yuuko > Misha > Emi > Hanako > Lilly > Shizune > Rin

4' 33" gets boring if it is on constant repeat, though.

If you think Hanako's theme wouldn't be Disco Inferno you're fooling yourself. Emi would be Legs by ZZ Top.

Everyone would be listening to The Killers. On shuffle. With headphones on. At max volume.

Hanako: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOhSqgXOWog
I see Hanako sitting, reading, in the library to this.

Rin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qC310ePiG-4
Seems about right....

Lilly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KWFg_pgip8
calming, cheerful.

Shizune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4Olx-oU1M8
Everything is a big, slightly frantic game. Playful and sly.

Emi: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbEuvLfS3cw
cheerful and cutesy.

On the topic of listening to those vibrations, in some people (such as yours truly), loud bass can cause breathing troubles. I don't exactly know why, but I recall reading something about the vibration causing the plates of the lungs to crack slightly open (don't know how true that is). But it is something that happens when I have labored breathing after going to a club, even if I don't dance.

So, if all she has is those vibrations, that must suck for her.
