I feel these are pretty good, if they more describe the relationships with Hanako than the girls themselves.
Lilly's seems to be slightly off mark, but I guess anything remotely romantic will suit her road.

Hanako's is the best and Savage Garden's song actually feels like it might describe Hisao's relationship with either Shizune or Rin... I'm surprised I haven't thought of it earlier as I quite like the song.
Yeah, I'm kind of on the lookout for a different Lily song. The only relevant lines in there really have to do with her senses, everything else is generic.

I also thought Green Day - Basket Case was better for Kenji
I'm afraid nothing that I'd listen to frequently would match Lilly, though some of the songs proposed in here suit her quite well.

As for Shizune, there is always the possibility of : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUvenXW_LXI (obvious).

Lilly's ending (bad and to a point, good) is partially reflected in : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGzKCTDGxbU
Lilly/Hanako relationship : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PRfqJiAWlQ

I'll consider what else may suit them before spamming with my favorite bands.
Progress : Lilly - finished (Good ending), Hanako - finished (good ending), Rin - finished (Good ending), Shizune - finished (Bad ending), Emi - Finished (good ending)

Lilly=Rin > Hanako > Emi=Misha > Shizune

While we are here discussing, Hanako is somewhere hopping from dark to darker tiles. Alone.

Well I suppose this is a bit of an excuse to post Dream Theater, but: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgKHimdfNrY for Emi

This one is tailor-made for Rin:
A-ha - Velvet

The lines that get me:
Her touch would be tender
Her lips would be warm
But when we're together
I'm always alone


As for Emi... Hehe:
Ash - Detonator

High explosive girl you turn me on
So volatile like a walking atom bomb (just like a walking atom bomb)
Just takes one spark to kerosene
You go off like nitroglycerine (you go off like nitro glycerine)

The time is right to deviate
The supernatural cannot wait
I'll show you how to detonate, yeah

I'm coming up, I'm rising from the flames
I've been reborn with fire in my veins (I've been reborn with fire in my veins)
(Referring to Hisao's health from being with Emi)

Plus the song is completely dripping with sexual charge, exactly like Emi.

Hanako... Saved the best and most apt for last...:
Muse - Falling Away With You

i can't remember when it was good
moments of happiness elude
maybe i just misunderstood

all of the love we left behind
watching the flash backs intertwine
memories i will never find

so i'll love whatever you become
and forget the reckless things we've done
i think our lives have just begun
i think our lives have just begun

and i feel my world crumbling
i feel my world crumbling
i feel my soul crumbling away
and falling away
falling away with you

staying awake to chase a dream
tasting the air you're breathing in
i know i won't forget a thing

promise to hold you close and pray
watching the fantasies decay
nothing will ever stay the same


*sniffle*

As for Shizune and Lilly, don't really like them so...

Calvin: They say the world is a stage. But obviously the play is unrehearsed and everybody is ad-libbing his lines.

Hobbes: Maybe that’s why it’s hard to tell if we’re living in a tragedy or a farce.

Calvin: We need more special effects and dance numbers.

Wow this is super difficult for me because I tend to prefer music that emphasizes music and not lyrics.

I know these are instrumental and don't really count, but I think these are perfect (might edit for other characters later):
Hanako: It's Natural To Be Afraid by Explosions in the Sky (seriously, don't let the beginning put you off... the whole song fits her really well, imo)
The Shizune/Misha dynamic in Shizune's route: Quiet by This Will Destroy You

And here are some songs with lyrics? This is harder because I always take both the lyrical meaning (which is often nuanced in the music that I listen to) and the tone of the song into consideration, so I'm not sure if they fit perfectly (and I tended to err on the relationship that Hisao has with the girls than about the girls themselves):
Emi: Lion's Mane by Iron and Wine
Hanako: Chocolate by Snow Patrol
Lilly: All at Once by The Fray
Rin: Star by The Crash (the music video even involves dandelion seeds...)
Shizune: Making Noise by Damien Rice

I really wish I could put down Broom People by the Mountain Goats for Shizune because I sort of felt that was a great description of the end of act one for her (at least emotionally), but... he definitely moves past that self-loathing so I'll just mention it here? Haha. It was really difficult to find a song that conveys the way that I see Hisao and Shizune's relationship properly because most songs about women in charge are pretty angsty, and I see their relationship as one of the healthiest.

Gosh I spent three hours thinking about this. ._.
Shizune >>> Emi > Rin = Hanako >> Lilly

Katawa Shoujo is a game that, by all accounts, shouldn't exist, but it does and we're happier because of it!
Shizune è una porcona

Rin - Pepper by Butthole Surfers
Why? Well is a song about identity and how it is impossible to understand others in a meaningful way.
'"I don't mind the sun sometimes
The images it shows
I can taste you on my lips
And smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary
And softly spoken lies
You never know just how you look
Through other people's eyes"

Lilly
Train in vain by The Clash
Why? It is a sweet song about a guy who misses a girl who went far away
"All the times
When we were close
I'll remember these things the most
I see all my dreams come tumbling down
I can't be happy without you around"

Hanako What Is And What Should Never Be by Led zepellin
Why? A Trippy song, its hard to explain, listen to the lyrics, Hanako's all over it
"And catch the wind, see us spin
Sail away, leave the day
Way up high in the sky
and whoa the wind won't blow, we really shouldn't go
It only goes to show that you will be mine, by takin' our time"

Emi Your Wall's Too High by Steppenwol
Why? Since most of Emi's route is about getting past her defenses
"Everyone gets hurt sometimes
Everybody plays the game
If you don't win the first time
Come back and try again
Rocks and bricks can't help you
You can't hide behind your wall
Why don't you try to jump it little girl
I'll catch you if you fall"

I cant find a music foir Shizune, looked trough my music libraries on Grooveshark and nothing.
Don't just eat that hamburger, eat the HELL out of it!
