Characters theme song, anyone?

Today I listen to Vanessa Williams - Breathless and can't stop thinking about Lilly. The song is deep and sweet, just like her character.

Now I noticed that it would be great if each girl has her own song. Anyone want to join me? Just come up with 6 songs for 6 girls, English or Japanese, lyrics or non lyrics and post a youtube video of that song here

Actually, I think the characters do have theme songs, it's just that they aren't called "_______'s theme", they actually have titles.

I do believe Parity is Rin's theme, and Out of the Loop is Kenji's

It's true, but I think the author meant to try and attach songs outside of what was used and created for KS to particular girls.

I think I'll try this tomorrow or on the weekend. It would be interesting to see the overall musical preferences of Katawa Shoujo fans clash.
I think I can afford to be myself and attach an Evanescence song to Hanako (though, I have my doubts whether it wouldn't be even more suitable for Rin)
Song is "where will you go" from "Origin". I don't listen to Evanescence ALL that much, but some of their music is plain awesome.

So, Hanako or Rin, "Where will you go" : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHNsM-Z1398

Those wouldn't be songs per se because they're not, well, sung.

Eva Cassidy's version of "Fields of Gold" reminds me of Lilly's path, for obvious reasons
Also: it's stunningly beautiful, much like the whole route.

This.

I like to imagine Lilly and Haiso spending their summer like in this song

A Summer Wasting - Belle & Sebastian
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8LmfH2kuB8

Just wasting their time doing nothing except enjoy each others company.

Abandon All Ships - Guardian Angel for Hanako/Emi :P

Rin: Helter Skelter by the Beatles.

"Do you don't you want me to love you
I'm comin' down fast, but I'm miles above you
Tell me tell me tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer"

Sums up Rin pretty well, if you think of "dancer" as in social 'dancer' aka socially finessed.

I can't believe nobody even bothered to put this one down. Hanako's theme song.


Coincidentially, it shall also become my theme song in Hell if I keep this up. Whoopsie.

Several threads on 4chan generated some good ones, I've collected a few and added a few:

Emi - Phil Collins - Easy Lover http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnDYattQH3Y
Rin - Genesis - Invisible Touch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMiDhmL_zFo
Hanako - Goo Goo Dolls - Iris http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdYWuo9OFAw
Lily - Celine Dion - Because You Loved Me - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CkKuA86Mis
Shizune - Savage Garden - Break Me Shake Me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJY6xGm_6f0

Hisao - The Weakerthans - Reconstruction Site http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXMiPKBV17Q
Kenji - The Weakerthans - Confessions of a Futon Revolutionist http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9D8VEoghtc

Hanako's I think is the best by far, but a clever anon suggested Invisible Touch for Rin and I thought that was pretty good.

I feel these are pretty good, if they more describe the relationships with Hisao 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

Don't know about specific character themes, but I imagine if there was a graduation scene in KS it would be played to this song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHvgAJe8 ... ure=relmfu

I think it encompasses what all the characters in KS and 4LS itself went through and embody.
