Sunao ni Narenakute OST
If the cast wasn’t enough to draw people into the drama, then the two main songs of Sunao ni Narenakute are another great reason to check out the drama. The main theme was done by hot new group Weaver who are signed to A-sketch, the same label that flumpool now belong to (they did the themes for the Bloody Monday series). Okay, and not just the main songs, but really all the songs and instrumentals used really added something special to the drama.
Not quit sure what the weird feather girl has to do with the meaning behind the song, but hey, it’s a great song. It would be weird if the videos actually made sense.
01 Hard to say I love you ～言い出せなくて～<
04 Hard to say I love you ～言い出せなくて～（Instrumental）
To go with the catchy beat and more upbeat(?) opening song, we then have the prolific Sugawara Sayuri contributing a softer, no less addicting, track to the drama.
The title of the drama is based on a song from Chicago “Hard to Say I’m Sorry” and it is referenced in the drama during one of the gang’s meetings at Emotion, when they formed the Sunare(sp?) club. This song is really fitting for what happens throughout the drama.
English songs prominent in the series include music by UK group The Ting Tings, i.e. “Great DJ,” “That’s Not My Name,” “Be the One,” and “Keep Your Head.” Some people can take or leave the English music, but it wasn’t the worse and there were two great, addictive Japanese tracks that got more playtime anyways.
01 Be the One
02 Great DJ
03 Great DJ (Acoustic)
04 Keep Your Head
And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Stereophonics “Maybe Tomorrow.”
All of these, plus the instrumentals add up to make a killer soundtrack for a great drama.
