This sums up KS, in my mind, perfectly. After all, "... dell'amore non si sa."

The unwavering emotion remix in pokemon X and Y make me think of KS a lot.

Clara's Theme from Doctor Who is a very sweet little song that makes me tear up.

So yes, it reminds me of all the happy times in KS.

An amalgamation of a few different pieces from Secret Of Mana, done on piano. Gorgeous.

Gorgeous indeed...And oddly suitable to KS.

Hmm,

I think this one fits Rin

I think this theme fits Hanako.

This one for Lilly

Still searching a fitting one for the Emi, Shizune, and Kenji...

I don't know why, but this song makes me think of one of the Neutral/Bad Endings (Rin's especially...):

Hello everybody!

First things first: Since I haven't seen any "introduce yourself" thread in the forum, and it feels somewhat inappropriate to open one as first message, I'll double this post as answer and introduction of myself. Recently discovered KS and fell automatically in love with it, so that's why i decided to join the forums to know the devs and people like me. (Also I'd like to know if there is an official translation group for the game in Spanish, 'cause I'd like to join it).

So now, on with my contribution.

The game's still fresh enough for me to make every song I heard give me memories of certain scenes, and so I am not sure if I can say it's because of pure enthusiasm or I feel a real connection. I am a very musical-oriented person; it evokes images easily in me. But certain songs give a stronger impression.

For example, these two pieces make me remember Rin's path quite strongly.

"Sprawl II (Mountain Beyond Mountains)" by Arcade Fire. I don't know why, really. For some kind of reason, I connect her with dream-pop, whether it is electronic-oriented or not. However, Arcade Fire's composition gives me a strong, undetermined vibe that reminds me of her story, and I don't know why.

"Primavera", by Ludovico Einaudi. I discovered this track at the same time that KS, and every time I heard it I can only think of a green hill at sunset covered in dandelion seeds taking flight.

This song makes me remember the game in a more general tone.

"Step Out" by José González

And, finally, this song is DEFINITELY about Hanako. Don't try to convince me otherwise. The fact that it has over 15 years is merely accessory:

"Absolutely (Story of a girl)" by Nine Days

Probably a bit more obvious then some of the other submissions here, but "Speak Softly, Love" (Love Theme from "The Godfather") by Andy Williams seems to quite suitable. I don't know why, but the piece's melancholic key seem's fitting - a musical 'memento mori', if you will.

Not sure if it would fit with any particular girl (it could even be an encompassing piece for all of them), but some of the lyrics and allegories seem to remind me of the confession scene in Lilly's route.

'Speak softly, love, so no one hears us but the sky
The vows of love we make will live until we die
My life is yours
And all because
You came into my world with love
So softly, love'

Well, this reminds me a little bit of Red Velvet, mostly 'cause it's on the Euro-café side of things. If not with a little more kick to it.

I also have this irksome suspicion that Kenji would listen to rock.

Damaged People. Especially with Hanako x Hisao.

Actually, a lot of Depeche Mode fits.

Which may have something to do with me writing a fanfic that uses it heavily... (I actually am using Enjoy The Silence as like a quadruple entendre.)

This actually fits in at least three places, if not more: Lilian. The obvious one is Lilly's bad/neutral ending, although it also fits her good ending until Hisao turns it into the good ending. It also fits HANAKO'S bad ending, from her point of view, as well as every other ending except for her own good and neutral endings, and Lilly's good ending (and then it still fits), unless you interpret her presence in Shizune's route as her having come back, and not an error.

(Which is why I used it in my fic as well, given that it existed in a continuity that Lilly didn't come back in.)

Oh hell, these days what song DOESN'T make me think of KS in one way or another?


A scene I'd love to show Hanako when she was feeling down and unwanted. (posted before this damn song got beaten into the ground)

For reasons, I was told to post sound based artwork in here.

The EDM song "We could be heaven." makes me think of Katawa Shoujo.
