Not so much the whole song, but there's one bit in Jonathan Coulton's Nemeses:
"Sometimes it's hard to tell
If you even notice me
Maybe it's just as well
It's better you don't see
The way I'm running just to keep your back in view..."
Just seems to me to sum up Hisao's early relationship with Emi.
(And of course, the name of the album that's from, Artificial Heart, calls Hisao to mind as well.)

Depeche Mode - Dangerous, Hisao POV, Shizune route.

Depeche Mode - Everything Counts. A couple places I can see it kinda fitting. Akira POV of her parents, or Lilly POV of Shizune.

Depeche Mode - A Question of Lust, Hisao POV, Lilly route (except it's Lilly that needs to drink more than Hisao seems to think, before she's anyone's...) It might also kinda fit Hanako POV somewhere, too.

Depeche Mode - Master and Servant. Do I even have to explain?

I'm assuming Misha/Shizune, but it could also probably work for Hisao/Shizune to an extent.

Considering that Misha and Shizune presumably never had sex, I'd say Hisao/Shizune. :P

And, now, for some more Depeche Mode, because why the hell not...

Depeche Mode - Shake the Disease. I actually usually think of Hanako POV, Hanako route... but that's not the closest match in KS. Rin POV, Rin route matches it more closely.

Depeche Mode - It's Called A Heart. How the hell have I not posted this one? Hisao POV across all of the routes, really, could be a KS theme.

Depeche Mode - Only When I Lose Myself. Hisao POV, applies to any good end, but especially Lilly's and Hanako's.

Alright, I think I'm done for now.

For me pretty much anything by The Doors reminds me of Rin,
particularly People are Strange: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq9oR9x171w
Which works for me because i love both :)

I Just Dropped In by Kenny Rogers is actually a super funky warning against LSD usage, but the lyrics are distinctly Rinny.

It's a song called Run:

Also, I feel like this works for any of the girls with a clear mental/emotional issue. There's no words, but it's called Psychiatry, and it captures the feeling of exploring a damaged psyche pretty well:

Finally, how can I hear this and not think of Hachisame?

I found this through another video and instantly though of KS, no particular reason though why since it does not relate to it, Its just so kawaii :D

Rin's instafeels led me to Roykopp's Happy Up Here. That led me to their song Miss It So Much, which I now associate with Rika, especially brythain's interpretation of her.
I like all the girls in KS, but empathize with Hanako the most.

Hi all, first-time player, been lurking for a while but signed up to post this. Finished Emi's route a couple of days ago and got run over by the feels train.
Anyway, I came across something in my collection that would go great with Emi's good ending, over the end credits or something.

Roxette - Run To You

Here come the feels again...

Lindsey Stirling ft. Lzzy Hale - Shatter Me

It fits in a couple places - Hisao POV, act 1 (with potential to head towards a Manly Picnic, as there's nobody to catch him if he takes a dive), and Rin POV.

Edit: And possibly Lilly POV, actually...

Personally, the KS soundtrack is the music that makes me think the most of KS.
"With my eternal life, I will see the world through to its end. Until everyone who won't like me is gone."

"Can you face your fears ?"
— Hanako

I speak from the noise
Souls and shapes, forever twisted
the lost voices of the damned
lure the bringer of despair

Fugazi - Long Distance Runner - "I can't keep your pace if I want to finish this race, my fight's not with it, it's with the gravity" reminds me of a certain route about a runner, although it doesn't play out exactly the same, but it still fits.
