Higurashi music discussion (OP/ED, game soundtracks, dramaCDs etc.)

Feel free to discuss any music related subjects for Higurashi no Naku Koroni here.

These include but not limited to: OP and ED themes, BGMs used in the TV anime, BGMs used in the original doujin game, dai's Thanks/you doujin album, and drama CDs as listed on Higurashi's English wikipedia site.

As the usual rule, NO POSTING LINKS TO MP3s OR ASKING FOR THEM. You may buy them at the usual place such as cdjapan and what not.

Opening Theme

Does anyone have more of the opening theme lyrics? All I've been able to make out are:

ひぐらしのく頃に
Vocals: Shimamiya Eiko

振り向いた その後ろ(正面誰?)
暗闇に爪を立てて 夜を引き裂いた

雨垂れは 血の雫となって頬を伝い落ちる
もう何処にも帰る場所が無いなら

この指止まれ 私の指に
その指ごと連れてってあげる
ひぐらしがなく 開かずの森へ
後戻りは もうできない

...鏡の中で 蠢き伸ばしてくる無数の手で
さぁ 誰かをここへ誘いなさい...

Here's a site where you can play keyboard DDR with musics from the Higurashi game, so anyone who's interested in what the game's music sound like should give it a try ^^:
ひぐらしのる頃に

Anything above 4 stars kick my ass. orz

Actually, concerning "MP3s" of the original game.

If I understand correctly, 07th Expansion used public domain music in the first four game chapters, right? Therefore, the music is already "free"... is there a list of what songs were used, at least?

I wouldn't know how much of a help it would be since the titles do not correspond to the mp3 filename itself, but here's a screencap from the music section of the game that lists all the musics that were used. Obviously, may of the titles are in Japanese:

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni


Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai

(I listed my own favorite tracks in bold )

It looks like Ryukishi07 had some sort of "file name jumble system" where he would toss the files in and get back some messed up file names. ^^;

Now, "Higurashi no Naku Koroni" (question chapters) only featured non-licensed free musics tracks, but there were some really nice ones in there. In any case, since you can download the trial version of the game (featuring the entire first chapter, Onikakushi-hen) from the official site. You'll probably find most of the tracks from the question chapters (most were used during Onikakushi) included in the trial version.

But the quality of the game's music really took off when we entered into "Higurashi no Naku Koroni Kai" (answer chapters), with bgms created by skilled doujin artists. In particular, artists like dai with his wonderful piano tracks, or the "thinking musics" from Propan Mode (I loved Sheep Counts ), to the exciting adrenaline rush from 煉獄小僧's tracks (彷徨いの言葉は天に導かれ and Z・E・R・O made Tsumihoroboshi-hen's ending one of my favorites). The story of Higurashi wouldn't have half the impacts it did if it weren't for these musics.

EDIT: Eh? The trial version link isn't working. Well, give it a try later. ^^;

The soundtrack by Dai i must say is one brilliant piece of work, even more so with my obsession with piano music - its just a shame i haven't heard the music in the game. ^^;

I definetely recognize some of the BGM from other animes'. If you're not
familiar with the concepts, producers for television or film can purchase
libraries of music to use in their productions so they don't have to blow
the budget hiring big-name talent. But the opening and ending themes
and some of the incidental themes are not in that category, really good
stuff IMHO.

If you go to the mp3 page of dai-san's website, you can actually download a few of the tracks used in "Higurashi no Naku Koroni Kai". ^^;

http://www.geocities.jp/iwamud/music.html

It's not much, but you can download both "Conviction" and "LIVE" there, which, in my opinion, are two of the best tracks from Minagoroshi-hen (Conviction is one of many "sorrow" piano tracks used in Minagoroshi, while LIVE is actually the ending song of Minagoroshi-hen(!)). LIVE, in particular, really delivered an "epic" atmosphere for Minagoroshi's ending, and ranks as one of my top tracks from dai-san.

EDIT: Oh, of course, all the other tracks are excellent too. "you", in particular, is THE signature track for Meakashi-hen, you can even consider it to be "the theme song for Shion's story".

So the opening theme will be released in 2 days. Or rather, one day for most of us due to time difference.

I also noticed that the official site has put up a huge package of goodies that comes with the first volume DVD that will be released on August 4.

http://www.oyashirosama.com/web/item/index.htm#dvd

Can anyone see if this is a special edition DVD? It also includes a mini soundtrack CD.

Conviction has got a very stong feeling being each note played within the tune, really good. Even though i haven't played the game, when listening to the tune - i can just picture the game & whats happening in my head.

Same pretty much goes for Live as well, this is really good music.

You from this track is from the same OST by Dai right? No wonder its my fav', with it being the theme song for Shion's story. ^^

Shouldn't you be asking that in the Merchandise thread?

Higurashi's OP is among the best, if not THE best, this season. The melody is just so dark, rich in nuance, foreboding, yet high-paced and simply beautiful. Period.

I am becoming quickly obsessed with the Higurashi game music. dai is amaaazing. I've been needing a new music obsession since Eureka seveN's first OST... aa... "you" sure sends out that Shion feel.

Great music for things I love... makes me so happy~ dai can quite capture the feelings I get when watching/thinging/experiancing anything Higurashi. Haaau~

Full OP lyrics:

振り向いた その後ろの (正面だぁれ?)
暗闇に爪を立てて (よるを引き裂いた)

雨だれは血のしずくなって頬を
つたい落ちる
もうどこにも帰る場所が無いなら

 この指止まれ 私の指に
 その指ごと 連れてってあげる
 ひぐらしが鳴く 開かずの森へ
 後戻りは もう出来ない


ひとりずつ 消されてゆく (蒼い炎)
暗闇の その向うに (朝はもう来ない)

鏡の中で 蠢き伸ばしてくる無数の手で
さぁ 誰かをここへ誘いなさい

 鬼さんこちら 手を鳴るほうへ
 どんなに逃げても 捕まえてあげる
 ひぐらしが鳴く けもの道から
 聞こえていた声はもう無い


 この指止まれ 私の指に
 その指ごと 連れてってあげる
 ひぐらしが鳴く 開かずの森へ
 後戻りは もう出来ない

 鬼さんこちら 手を鳴るほうへ
 どんなに逃げても 捕まえてあげる
 ひぐらしが鳴く けもの道から
 聞こえていた声はもう無い


Romaji:

furimuita sono ushiro no (shoumen dare?)
kurayami ni tsume wo tatete (yoru wo hikisaita)

amadare wa chi no shizuku tonatte hoho wo
tsutai ochiru
mou dokonimo kaeru basho ga nai nara

kono yubi tomare, watashi no yubi ni
sono yubigoto tsuretette ageru
higurashi ga naku akazu no mori he
