This Year in Drama Soundtracks: 2014 Edition – Part II Odds & Ends

Drama ReviewsEnd of the Year ReviewsMusic

Eh it’s already 2015, but I figure it’s still the right time to look back on 2014 drama OST’s!  There is no particular theme for this soundtrack round-up; instead Part II includes the odds and ends that I didn’t include in Part I.  Funny enough, most of these songs are actually from dramas that I ended up dropping. >_>”

Track List:

  1. Soon We’ll Be Happy ( 快樂快了) by Jia Jia (家家) – Rock ‘n Road OST
  2. Love Me, Don’t Go (愛我別走) by A-Yue (張震嶽) – Mr. Right Wanted OST
  3. Forgive My Imperfections (原諒不美好 ) by Yisa Yu (郁可唯 ) – Mr. Right Wanted OST
  4. Ima Kawaru Toki (今かわるとき ) by Sakurai Minami (桜井美南) – Nazo no Tenkousei OST
  5. You’re the Only One by Mayday (五月天)- Rock ‘n Road OST
  6. Fall by Makihara Noriyuki (槇原敬之) – Kyou wa Kaisha Yasumimasu OST
  7. Neon Sign Stomp by EGO-WRAPPIN’ – River’s Edge OST

Soon We’ll Be Happy ( 快樂快了) by Jia Jia (家家)

Rock ‘n Road OST

“Just pretend the promise you gave
has not yet been fulfilled and is not a lie.

Just pretend that everyday in the future
is to wait for this dream to come true,
no matter how many years it’ll take.”

Given that Rock ‘n Road is a drama about singers & music production, of course it has to have a great OST to go along with it, right?  I loveee both the opening & ending theme songs for this drama, even though I ended up dropping it early on.  This song “Soon We’ll be Happy” is also titled “Happiness is Coming” elsewhere.  Jia Jia’s voice is so soothing to listen to.

Love Me, Don’t Go (愛我別走) by A-Yue (張震嶽)

Mr. Right Wanted OST

Out of all the dramas that I’m mentioning on this list, Mr. Right Wanted has my favorite overall OST.  If I could I would just put the entire OST in this round-up, LOL.  This is one of my favorites off of the MRW OST, very melancholy and beautiful.  It is a famous Chinese song from the 1990’s, maybe that’s why it gives me nostalgic feelings?  Note that this song has also been featured in the tw-drama In A Good Way though, so it is not unique to MRW.

Forgive My Imperfections (原諒不美好 ) by Yisa Yu (郁可唯 )

Mr. Right Wanted OST

Another great song from the MRW OST; this one has a whimsical feel to it.  So suitable for the drama!

Ima Kawaru Toki (今かわるとき ) by Sakurai Minami (桜井美南)

Nazo no Tenkousei OST

This is the opening theme song for Nazo no Tenkousei; I really loved the opening MV for it as well.  Unfortunately I couldn’t find the drama’s OP MV though! >_<

You’re the Only One by Mayday (五月天)

Rock ‘n Road OST

The band Mayday has been coming out with tons of theme songs for both Chinese and Taiwanese dramas as of late.  Out of the ones they’ve done, I enjoy “You’re the Only One” because it goes perfectly with the opening MV.  It gets stuck in my head really easily, heh.

Fall by Makihara Noriyuki

Kyou wa Kaisha Yasumimasu OST

This is another REALLY catchy song from the popular fall jdrama Kyou wa Kaisha Yasumimasu.  Unfortunately this song is one of the only things that stuck with me from that drama. T_T

Neon Sign Stomp by EGO-WRAPPIN’

River’s Edge OST

Saving the best for last. 😛  IMO EGO-WRAPPIN’s theme song has the most charm and character out of this list.  Plus it’s paired with a great atmospheric opening MV; I love how it includes both EGO-WRAPPIN’ performing the song and the characters together!   I’m so glad that River’s Edge featured EGO-WRAPPIN’ because trust me, they are amazing.

That’s all for This Year in Drama Soundtracks, 2014!  Are there any good songs from drama OST’s that I didn’t include?  Let me know which songs you liked the most from 2014. 🙂

  • It’s a little different but did you hear 平凡之路 by 朴樹? It was the ending theme for the movie The Continent (後會無期). It’s a nice song! A little different. I don’t know if you saw the movie, I just watched it a few days ago…it was, atmospheric? lol I’m not sure how to describe it. I liked it.

  • I thought it’s Kimi Hsia who sung “Soon We’ll Be Happy”. Jia jia, is she that other actress?

    I’m also not finished yet with this drama. I wanted to finish it cause I don’t want to waste the DVD I bought and I wanted to explore music-setting drama. But the plot often doesn’t make sense, and the female lead is not effective on trying to act silly adorable (is annoying instead). Don’t know when I’ll go back to finish it. (=_=’)
