I’m pretty late to the party of last year’s Because This Life Is Our First lovers but better late than never! I completely loved the drama except some last minute hiccups. Among the oodles of reasons for the adoration, the soundtrack of the show is a prime highlight. It is very soothing, soft, low-key and yet very strong. Not only on the main central couple, but the songs are played on the other two secondary couples as well, who also are an important part of the story and its meaning. So here is the list of songs that are continuously on loop since I completed the show:
This Life by Moon Sung Nam of Every Single Day
My favourite song of the bunch! It is so emotional right from the start to the end point. It touches the deepest corners of the heart with its tune and vocals. The song is played throughout the many emotional, poignant scenes of the drama. You need to listen to it in a quiet place to really let it enchant you with its magic.
Everyday by Hae Bin of Gugudan
A lovely sweet song, full of sweetness of love and being happy when in love. The track definitely gives you all rainbows and unicorns. It says about all the gestures and reactions when someone is in love and the other person is your everything. One can think of nothing but his or her lover.
Shelter by Song Hee Jin feat. Lee Yo Han (OFA)
A beautiful duet! The song talks about being a shelter to someone and giving your warmth. It is one of the rare duet songs, at least I have not heard many in dramaland as mostly we see male or female only songs. I simply love how softly and gently it starts with Hee Jin and then both sing the further lines together in one sync.
Star Figure by Uji
This song instantly brings smile, sunlight and all positive vibes. It is played in the drama whenever a new zeal comes for our protagonists. Especially the lalalalala is a booster.
Marriage by MoonMoon
A drama about marriage of convenience is incomplete without a song on the theme. This song talks about being in a marriage but feeling lonely due to lack of love between the partners. It says about the contrast between what spouses normally do and the protagonists’ marriage. A deep emotional song.
Can’t Go by Ben
This one is more like the typical love ballad found in numerous OSTs of numerous dramas. But that does not make it less good. It’s soft, melodious and perfect for depiction of the hero or heroine’s feelings.
