The Clannad visual novel has four pieces of theme music: one opening theme, two ending themes, and an insert song. The opening theme is "Mag Mell" (メグメル, Megu Meru?) by Eufonius. The two ending themes are "-Kage Futatsu-" (-影二つ-, -Two Shadows-?) and "Chiisana Tenohira" (小さなてのひら, Small Palms?) sung by Riya of Eufonius; the latter is used as the ending theme in the After Story arc. The insert song "Ana" is sung by Lia. Six of the characters have background music leitmotifs—the five heroines, and Yukine Miyazawa. Nagisa's theme is the self-titled "Nagisa" (渚?); Kyou's theme is "Sore wa Kaze no Yōni" (それは風のように, That's Like the Wind?); Kotomi's theme is "Étude Pour les Petites Supercordes"; Tomoyo's theme is "Kanojo no Honki" (彼女の本気, Her Determination?); Fuko's theme is "Hurry, Starfish" (は〜りぃすたーふぃしゅ, Ha~rī Sutāfisshu?); lastly, Yukine's theme is "Shiryōshitsu no Ochakai" (資料室のお茶会, Tea Party in the Reference Room?).

Famous quotes containing the word music:

    I’ve come close to matching the feeling of that night in 1944 in music, when I first heard Diz and Bird, but I’ve never got there.... I’m always looking for it, listening and feeling for it, though, trying to always feel it in and through the music I play every day.
    Miles Davis (1926–1991)

    To know whether you are enjoying a piece of music or not you must see whether you find yourself looking at the advertisements of Pears’ soap at the end of the libretto.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    Sweet spring, full of sweet days and roses,
    A box where sweets compacted lie;
    My music shows ye have your closes,
    And all must die.
    George Herbert (1593–1633)
