Certain parts of Mad World sound like they describe Hanako really well.

"Easier To Run" by Linkin Park pretty much fits Emi perfectly. Running (literally) from your problems instead of facing them.

I was listening to Dogs by Pink Floyd during gameplay so it was automatically stuck in my head and the song reminds me of KS and vice versa forever. Not to say that its a bad thing to think about KS.

I am having deja vu, I swear I have seen this thread before but my post isn't here.

'Fields of Gold'.

Now, Sting sings of fields of barley as opposed to the field of wheat that Lilly and Hisao get, but meh, can't have everything.

Carolyn Dawn Johnson- Complicated fits Hanako so well in my opinion ... most of you find Hanako very dark ... i dont ... i find she just is scare of life cause of what she went through ... social issues are keeping her from coming out of her shell ... anyways here are the lyrics

I'm so scared that
The way that I feel
Is written all over my face
When you walk into the room
I wanna find a hiding place
We used to laugh
We used to hug
The way that old friends do
But now a smile and
A touch of your hand
Just make me come unglued
It's such a contradiction
Do I lie or tell the truth?
Is it fact or fiction
The way I feel for you?

CHORUS:
It's so complicated
I'm so frustrated
I wanna hold you close
I wanna push you away
I wanna make you go
I wanna make you stay
Should I say it
Should I tell you
How I feel?
Oh, I want you to know
But then again I don't
It's so complicated.


Just when I think
I'm under control
I think I finally got a grip
Another friend tells me that
My name is always
On your lips
They say I'm more
Than just a friend
They say I must be blind
Well I admit that
I've seen you watch me
From the corner of your eye
Oh it's so confusing
I wish you'd just confess
But think of what I'd be losing
If your answer wasn't yes

Repeat chorus

I hate it 'cause
I've waited so long
For someone like you
Should I say it
Should I tell you
How I feel?
Oh I want you to know
But then again I don't
It's so complicated

Story Of A Girl Lyrics
by: 3 Doors Down

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

Now how many days in a year
She woke up with hope
But she only found tears
And I can be so insincere
Making her promises never for real

As long as she stands there waiting
Wearing the holes in the soles of her shoes
Now how many days disappear
When you look in the mirror?
So how do you choose?

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

Now how did we wind up this way
Watching our mouths for the words that we say
As long as we stand here waiting
Wearing the clothes or the soles that we choose

Now how do we get there today?
When we're walking too far for the price of our shoes

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her
When she smiles

Well your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her

This is the story of a girl
Her pretty face she hid from the world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad in photographs
I absolutely love her
When she smiles
When she smiles!

~ This song actually reminds me Hanako.. and the feels,.. I wish I could sing this song for her!!

I already posted this song for Hanako. The song is called "Absolutely" and it's by the band Nine Days. 3 Doors Down has never played this song, and never will, it's just that the top rated video for this song on YouTube has both it's name and band mislabeled.

Well... I can think of a few, certainly, but I'm not sure how much help it would be to mention their names, since they're all from around here and none of them are in English, so even the odds of them being recognized are laughably slim.

Very general and associational but definite spoilers for the non-good endings..
There are elements of Hanako, Hisao/Iwanako, Lilly, and Rin in the lyrics, in that order. The first two stanza's are definitely Hanako bad end. The next three are Hisao/Iwanako: Hisao's memory of how his life chnaged, and his rejection (or parting) with Iwanako. Next half stanza is Lilly neutral end, but the final 2 stanzas could also be taken for Rin's neutral end.

Howl's Moving Castle theme tune.

The film has a very similar feel to it to KS as well (anime, fairytale story, feel-good factor etc etc). And the song itself sounds very reminiscent of the KS soundtrack to me.
Routes played: Emi (10/10), Shizune (6/10), Lilly (9/10), Hanako (9/10), Rin (7.5/10)
Emi > Hanako = Lilly > Rin > Shizune
"As long as you're still alive, you can keep going." ~ Emi

Squarepusher's Ultravistor seems to have me thinking about Rin whenever I listen to it now, both because of its abstract qualities and the calm relaxing guitar songs remind me of the music in KS itself. I'll post 2 examples.
