Did Hikasa Youko write them?
While I can't find anything definitive to prove it, I seriously doubt that any of the girls actually played instruments on the K-on singles. Finding 4 seiyuu that can sing decently together is hard enough, thinking that they can play instruments is asking too much.

Thinking more on that, I can only remember a few seiyuu that I've ever seen playing instruments at all. Chihara Minori is one, I believe that Hirano Aya is working on guitar, and Iwao Junko was an accomplished singer/pianist/songwriter. Can anyone think of any others?

As for writing lyrics, there is one lyracist cited for all of the other songs that the the Sakurako Keionbu have done: 大森祥子 (sorry, no romanji name, no wiki page either...). The first couple of lines of 'Fuwa x2' were pulled from the manga, and since the rest seem to fit together pretty well, I'm assuming that either Kakifly wrote them and preferred to use 'Mio' as a pen name, or that the staff lyricist completed the job.

Just as interesting, the music composers don't have much of a history either, making me wonder if KyoAni's real skill is in finding new talent. The music for all but 'Cagayake!' is 前澤寛之, and a brief search turned up music credits for AKB48, Melon Kinenbi and Hirano Aya. 'Cagayake!' was written by Tom-H@ck, and though I coudn't find any other credits, he did have an interesting website...

Iwao Junko is semi-retired now, last I heard.

Seiyuu who plays instruments are likely to be those who can be full-time singers.

I can't wait for the single for that stapler song to come out! :X

As for Fuwa Fuwa Time, I enjoyed K-On's version of Tsubasa wo Kudasai more, lol.

Ayako Kawasumi is a skilled pianist, and wrote the opening to Piano. Haruko Momoi plays the pianica and composes her own songs. Even the super-popular Nana Mizuki composed a couple of songs too, I don't remember reading anywhere that she knows any instruments well. I do find Super Generation by Nana Mizuki pretty good. From Mayaa Sakamoto recent concert tour, she seems to know how to play the piano pretty well too.

Hirano Aya should just practice singing before learning any instruments...-cough-

I was thinking the same thing, I couldn't find in the jackets who played the instruments in the song. From other jackets I seen before, they credit the people that played them. I thought the song writers aren't found by the animators but by the production company? Althought KyoAni has a good track record of finding good unknown seiyuu.

Update time for sales, Week 6/2

Fuwafuwa Time was 11 for the week, 13,363 sold (total 52,821)
Don't Say 'Lazy' was 20 for the week, 6,810 sold (total 129,701)
Cagayake! Girls was 27 for the week, 6,046 sold (total 117,078)

Not a bad week overall, but Cagayake! and Fuwa x2 look like they are beginning to fade. You might see another slight boost from the soundtrack release, but we might not have much to cheer for until the Mio/Yui singles get released at this point.

All music sources for the show point to it not being released anywhere yet.

The OST is already out. For those of you who got it, the music is not bad at all IMO (though not to the standard of Clannad OST or even Sora Kake).

Quite a number of tracks have that 1980s-1990s rock/metal feel.

The sweetest track laced with plenty of nostalgia would be Koneko no Ensou Kai.

I just started watching K-On! and I love the OP and ED songs.

I'll definitely get the OST just for full versions of those.

Since no one answered it in the Q and A

I was wondering, is Azusa singing cagkaye! girls (the opening theme song)?

My reasoning being that in the extended version someone individually names each member of the band and they do their respective solo's the only one not included is Azusa.

Or am I just way off base?

You might be right. In each of the albums they are all doing their personal versions of one of the songs, I am not sure if it is the OP or ED since I totally suck at reading Hiragana.

P.S If my waifu is not getting her own personal version I am going to destroy the world.

The song is "Let's Go!", a completely new song.

There might be a full version included with Azusa included, since in the opening credits she is also credited starting with those episodes with her in.

Is anybody else extremely sad/angry/disappointed that the “beach” theme song track isn’t on the OST. You know the one that is played at the beginning of episode 4 and when the train reaches the ocean as well as in episode 10.
I HAVE to have it.
