** He made an entire song series called [[http://vocadb.net/L/6718 "Story of 'Zinnia and Meme'"]] prior to his death, and a good chunk of the songs in it are pretty sad. "Brown" is about Meme spending time with Zinnia, knowing soon they won't be by each other's side anymore, while "Zinnia and Meme" is about Zinnia's thoughts on the same matter. "stoy." hits the hardest, as it's about Meme's thoughts after losing Zinnia and, after about 3 minutes in, we hear her speaking, saying that she loves Zinnia and doesn't want to be without her.

* "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AS4q9yaWJkI Sand Planet]]", Hachi's first Vocaloid song in the four years since "Donut Hole" and the theme song of Magical Mirai 2017 (as well as a marker for Miku's 10th birthday bash). You'd think with all those credentials the song would be a nostalgic look at how the system has grown, but it's quite somber. A more serious Miku, followed by heavily clothed musicians representing producers, wander around a dust bowl of a planet in the hopes of planting an apple tree that we later see a more common Miku making music under. They pass a castle resembling a birthday cake, starting off a slew of references to previous hits and Miku advises them to "salute to the graves of the masses/ the life that was born from the Melt sensation". Some of the pack leaves on their own, some join other desert walkers, and she keeps marching on and on with new people waiting on the horizon. The symbolism, and what it represents for the whole of Vocaloid, can be taken as a half-nostalgic half-bitter eulogy for the entire Vocaloid phenomenon, and Hachi's own involvement in it. And that's not getting into the symbolism for the ones that left the pack, who are alleged to represent late vocaloid producers Samfree and Powapowa-P.

* "[[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Cn4fAx2JqT4 Sleepyhead]]" by Steampianist and morbid-morsel seems innocent at the surface, about a girl sleeping in on her seventh birthday, and the narrator trying to wake her up so she can celebrate. But, if you analyze the lyrics enough, you realize that she won't wake up because she died in her sleep, and the narrator continues to try, knowing she has passed.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHm6BjJqIsE Sayoko]] by [=MikitoP=] is sung from the point of view of somebody who has grown tired of their lonely, monotonous existence and has already [[BungledSuicide tried to end it.]] Thing is, it's lonely and monotonous partly because this someone is so convinced of their worthlessness to begin with, to the point where they're not even willing to call their friends because they're probably too busy to bother with them. They have sunken so deep into this depression that at the end of the song, they express their doubt that there is any way out of the slog except death.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyiCYneHZ5I Tightrope]] by Creep-P toes the line between this and NightmareFuel. It tells the story of a tightrope walker who's an ArmoredClosetGay, to the point where he feels disgust even speaking to other men. He keeps himself focused during practices by removing the safety net underneath him (knowing that the fear of death will keep him from making any mistakes). However, he [[HopeSpot finally meets a man he doesn't feel disgusted by]]...[[spoiler: ...only for him to see said man flirting with a woman during the tightrope walker's performance. He's so upset that he missteps, falling to his death.]]

Added DiffLines:

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eh39VWPIj4 Jubyphonic has an English cover]], and her rendition of it starts off as nothing short of utterly devestating, but is wonderfully uplifting in the final verse.
