KyouSuna FanMix ~ Another Round

Another Round
Takano Kyouhei and Nakahara Sunako from the manga The Wallflower.
aka Perfect Girl Evolution, aka Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge

12 mp3 songs @ 192 kbps, 52.6 minutes, 72.8 MB



 

This is my first attempt at a Kyouhei x Sunako fanmix. It was rather difficult finding songs that really fit, just cause they are such a-typical characters in a rather undeveloped romance, so some of these songs were kinda 'read between the lines' based. There is no particular order for the songs, they are just a mix of songs that reminded me of either Kyouhei, Sunako or how they (or I would like them to) relate to each other. ♥ ♥ ♥


Ani DiFranco - Not A Pretty Girl [ snag ]
This song reminds me of how Sunako is, she not only doesn't see herself as pretty, but doesn't try to be. She rather do what she likes, and look how she likes, and can pretty much take care of herself (well, most of the time - you know what I mean :)
 
i am not a pretty girl
that is not what i do
i ain't no damsel in distress
and i don't need to be rescued 


Coldplay - Fix You [ snag ]
This is a great song about being there to help a friend when they are lost in love. Sunako has lost all interest in 'living' and 'growing up' she just wants to stay in her safe comfort zone because she doesn't want to get hurt again. Kyouhei (and the other boys :) are trying to 'fix' her so that she doesn't let one incident affect her life, and that she is worth more than one person's opinion.
 
When high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth
 


Duran Duran - She's Too Much [ snag ]
I don't think anyone would argue that Sunako is a handful - try as she might to avoid notice and attention, she seems to end up in a lot of scraps and mishaps - often involving her standing on the edge of sanity, lol. Kyouhei is always there to catch her when she falls and knows how to bring her back to reality.
 
I'll be there when the world is
coming down upon her
When she's scared, I'll be there
Fighting in her corner
I'll be there when the walls are closing to surround her
In the air as she falls with my arms around her
 


Eliza - Broken [ snag ]
This song reminds me of both of them. Sunako has been broken and is hurting and has chosen to avoid it, she just focuses on what she wants to remember and thinks it is fine if she lets everything go and is alone.
 
Just pieces of truth that I chose to keep and
No matter if now they are gone
No matter if I am alone
Still I can get back on my feet and walk on
 

Kyouhei is also broken - his family, the constant lost jobs and being fussed over. He hates it, but he can't control it or confront it - he has to learn to deal with it, but even though it has made him extremely irritable, he hasn't lost all sense, he just hasn't figured out how to deal yet.


Fiona Apple - Sullen Girl [ snag ]
This is probably how sunako felt after her disillusionment. Wandering around in a daze, finding calm in a world of her own making.
 
And there's too much going on
But it's calm under the waves, in the blue of my oblivion
Under the waves in the blue of my oblivion
 


Foo Fighters - Another Round [ snag ]
This song reminds me of all their fights and quarreling. No matter what sets them off, they continue to stick around and eventually are compelled to try again.
 
Can you go another round
I will follow you down and out
Let's go another round
I will follow you down and
 


Our Lady Peace - Made of Steel [ snag ]
This reminds me of Kyouhei in that he is always there to rescue Sunako, but that he isn't a typical 'hero' in that he also vulnerable and often needs rescuing in return. Although he fights it, he really does care about her and is always there to help Sunako when she is most vulnerable.
 
Your secrets safe with me
They knock you down
I’ll pick you up...
They laugh at you
I’ll shut them up


Sum 41 - Motivation [ snag ]
This song sums up Kyouhei pretty well, he lacks any real motivation (other than for food, and money to buy food :). He is self-indulgent, stubborn and disillusioned about life and people in general.
 
Motivation such an aggravation,
Accusations don't know how to take them.
Inspiration's getting hard to fake it.
Concentration's never hard to brake it.
Situation never what you want it to be.
 


Superchick - Beauty From Pain [ snag ]
I first heard this song from a fan music video on youtube (i'm sure someone can find the link - if it is still up) and have associated it with Sunako and Kyouhei ever sense. A beautiful song about getting through a tough time, but knowing that eventually you will be able to gain something valuable from all the pain. Sunako often questions her self worth and wants to retreat from the world, but not all her changes have been so bad - she is still learning, but she has become a stronger individual and hopefully in time, with Kyouhei's help, a more well-rounded and content person.
 
My whole world is the pain inside me
The best I can do is just get through the day
When life before is only a memory
I wonder why God lets me walk through this place
 


The Colour - Save Yourself [ snag ]
I see Kyouhei and Sunako as both having issues and both ignoring/avoiding dealing with them; but they notice each others problems and do their best to try and help. But, how can you truly help someone, when you can't deal with your own issues?
 
Tell me how are you gonna save me?
When you can’t save yourself
 


Trespassers William - Love Is Blindness [ snag ]
This is a cover of a U2 song. I could see Sunako listening to a song like this after her hopes of love had been so cruelly squached. She lost her faith in herself and her trust in people - wanting to retreat into the darkness, distancing herself from people.
 
love is blindness
I don't want to see
won't you wrap the night
around me?

 

Wild Strawberries - Blunt [ snag ]
Another song that reminded me of Kyouhei. He is rather blunt, and uninterested in a being an 'important' high-profile person. He knows that aspiring to such things won't make him happy. He finds joy in the simple things in life and just wants to be normal.
 
I don't want to be beautiful
No one ever hears her speak
I don't want to be a diplomat
With a heart attack for peace

That's it! What do you think? Is there a song that reminds you of Kyouhei, Sunako, or their relationship? I would love to hear about it!

Hi, Welcome!

Welcome. I'm a techie, a fangirl, and an aspiring government employee, lol.

I have a tendency to attempt a little of everything, whether or not I have time for it. I'm a jack of all trades who is an expert at none... but that's okay - I like to learn ^_^

I do not take credit for the creation/distribution of what i'm sharing here. I'm only collecting them in order to share with others who are also interested. Plus it is also a good way to keep track of what I love.

However, the stuff scanned by me I ask that there be no redistribution outside of my journal.

I welcome new LJ friends, but please allow me some time to get to know you before I friend you back.
