November Rain - Guns n' Roses

Was listening to some GnR. Friend reminded me of Civil War, another great song but largely irrelevant to this game :p. Anyway, November Rain made me think about KS because of the first lyric being about holding back on love because of reasons. For Lilly, it's for a secret. For Emi, to avoid having to experience another loss of a loved on.

When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin' when I hold you
Don't you know I feel the same

Also because its November!

Oh man, [THIS MUSIC] made me think so very much of KS and now I'm playing it all over again and I feel like writing a whole lot of KS-based stories once more...

I agree with November Rain, with the piano also, but especially the first lyric. Strange that I had the same thoughts as someone else!

November Rain: Part of the Official Video linked above gives me a feel of what Hisao/Saki would be.

Also: Akio Mutou's Theme :)
I like all the girls in KS, but empathize with Hanako the most.

Ping-pong circulate as Mutou's theme
Mutou: They're called life fibres, Hisao.

Hisao: Um, sir, please put your shirt back on.

Am I the only one who feels that Aikuro Mikisugi is basically how Jigoro looked and acted in his younger years? :lol:
I write take a look, would you kindly?
I also draw, kind of.

A R.E.M. song, "Don't go back to Rockville". The lyrics is an open request to a girl, who was returning to his home town "Rockville", to not leave.

Well, i imagine Hisao who sing "Don't go back to Scotland" to Lilly

Take this piece from Cavalleria rusticana, which is known to film lovers as what played over the opening of Raging Bull and the ending of The Godfather Part III, which makes me see this:

An elderly Hisao full of remorse over the women that were part of his life but were taken away from him - Iwanako, Lilly, a daughter etc. before suffering a fatal heart attack alone and unloved outside his home in Hokkaido.
"She also ties you up to a chair. You're gonna like that. Chairs are good. Chairs are your friend."

Lilly's route, good ending, when Hisao wakes up in the hospital after his collapse in front of the airport, or actually maybe better just before he decides to run after Lilly, THIS would be the perfect song!

I long for that feeling to not feel at all

Adele sings about Lilly's Route here.

As I wrote Monomyth, there were a bunch of songs floating around my head for various characters and pairings which I eventually dubbed the "Molly Mix v4.0: Yamaku Redux" and referenced in Cordially Invited as Molly's way of remembering her friends while she was back in Britain. May as well post it here for people's thoughts.

Courage (SAO II English cover) - Monistar (Monomyth group)
Immortals - Fall Out Boy (Taro)
Bang On The Piano - Jack McManus (Ritsu)
The Science of Selling Yourself Short - Less Than Jake (Akio)
Did I Say That Out Loud - Barenaked Ladies (Suzu)
Alive (Acoustic) - Krewella (Hanako)
P!nk - U + Ur Hand (Miki)
I Dare You To Break My Heart - Reel Big Fish (Akio/Hisao for Hanako/Shizune)
Gone, Gone, Gone - Phillip Phillips (Taro/Miki)

I work at a radio station, curating a DJ-submitted playlist of songs that airs when no one is currently on air.

Someone added the fucking multiball theme (DJ Fresh - Gold Dust). I could not believe my ears.
