What song(s) remind you of/make you think of Katawa Shoujo?

Post by Po1ntBlank » Tue Oct 30, 2012 12:36 am

For some reason, while I was either playing the game, or reading fanfics afterward, I seemed to have noticed a few songs standing out while reading them (I like to play quiet music when I read). Now, whenever I hear these songs, I instantly get reminded of this game. Anybody else have any similar experiences?

We are your friends - Simian, Justice
For Baltimore - All Time Low

Those are the only two I can think of atm. I might mention more later.

EDIT: Thanks to the mod who moved my post here. In case it sounds confusing to anyone, this reply was originally its own topic.

I don't know if you listen to J-songs--or understand them--but one particular band and its lyrics keep reminding me of KS. Curious? Try Supercell and its album Today is a Beautiful Day.

Its one of those that kept my mood running when I'm writing or drafting

Hanako's Neutral ending just remind me of Tupac's "Fuck Friendz" hook. By the way, I am not sorry for using rap lyrics for KS so if you gonna cry, cry because i dunno care!

Theme Songs for the Girls

Post by H_Shot_W » Thu Nov 22, 2012 6:38 pm

I know I can't be the only one to think this, but there are songs out there that I hear which make me think of the girls. Whether it's just their personalities, or the overall relationship throughout the course of the game. I've got a few ideas of my own and I was just wondering if anybody else could think of some.

When I play through the Lily arc, this song most definitely comes to mind for the kind of girl that she is.

For Emi I would have to say that, for some reason, this song fits with her. At least that's my opinion.

Those are sadly the only two I can think of right now. Trying to think of more, though. Anybody else have any ideas?

I was thinking about couple other songs, but I think this makes me think KS the most: All routes (good and bad endings), all characters and ost. This is my feels song:

RIn being in that flower field reminds me of this hip-hop sample of the Healing theme from Ico.

And the title of the song is very fitting too. Perhaps for her character.

Well, since you asked:
The game overall makes me think of "Shine a Light" by Wolf Parade: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lb1N8siYBJE
(That was kind of a given.)

Separate Characters:
Emi - "Run for Love" by Joan as Police Woman (It makes more sense if you read the lyrics):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwlzi0zoN_Q
Shizune - "I Was Everyone" also by Joan as Police Woman (I think it fits her slightly bossy personality quite well):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuLN57IEdBI
Rin - "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart" by Wilco (Strange yet beautiful, just like Rin herself):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlxH9-TYseY
Hanako - "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls (I think pretty much everyone agrees on this one, amirite?):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8UeeIAJ0a0
Lilly - "The Hill" by Marketa Irglova (Extremely pretty, but very insecure lyrics):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfRhrWhuMdE
Misha - "To Be Lonely" yet again by Joan as Police Woman (What can I say? I love her music.):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HANDwb03NPs
Kenji - "The Boy With the Thorn in His Side" by The Smiths (lol):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsjevMbPqW0
Akira - "Time to Know ~ Be Waltz" by The Seatbelts (Jazz and Akira go together like peanut butter and Nutella):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PneJzBpki-U

Wow, that was rather difficult!

Listening to Careless - deadmau5 makes me remember Rin.
You contradict everything, and I don't care
Your logic is twisted, and I don't care
I'll pretend to be happy, and I don't care
You cry yourself to sleep, and I don't care
You're weak and you're gullible, and I don't care
You're a walking disaster, and I don't care

The Un-Music of Katawa Shoujo

Post by Steinherz » Sat Mar 02, 2013 4:25 pm

Or in other words: Music that fits Katawa Shoujo from other places. However that title seems a bit long and unoriginal XD
For example:
The song Devour by Disturbed fits (for me) as an overall theme for Hisao {especially on Rin, Emi and Hanako's routes} the reason being the chorus:

Give me a/Show me the reason to make you mine
I will devour you
Take all the pain away
I cannot stay my hand
From reaching out so that I can
Empower you
For all eternity
It seems to ease my mind
To know that you've brought
Meaning to my life

It fits quite well (for me at least)

Another song that fits is the instrumental of Mein Herz Brennt Piano version. It feels like something that would play at the beginning of a sad scene (start), which shifts into a tense scene (1:50), then shifts back into a less tense scene (3:53).

So what do you all think are some songs/music that fits KS or scenes in KS from other places?
I write take a look, would you kindly?
I also draw, kind of.

Okay, I swear I'm gonna try to take this topic seriously but first... Emi's theme.
<KeiichiO>: "I wonder what Misha's WAHAHA's sound like with a cock stuffed down her throat..."
<Ascension>: "I laughed, cried, vomited in my mouth a little, and even had time for marshmallows afterwards. Well played, Xanatos. Well played."
<KeiichiO>: "That's a beautiful response to chocolate."

Anyway, I can't think of any songs that can fit with the characters right now, but I will be back...
