Additional Notes


Track 1
Alone Again, Naturally Alone Again, Naturally 3:40
Performed by Gilbert O'Sullivan, Alone Again Naturally is the second opening theme in Maison Ikkoku. Ratings were low and the producers decided to do something that might boost the ratings and so they used this song and Get Down for episode twenty-four only. Its a really great song that has a nice up tempo beat, but very depressing lyrics. A midi version is available. It can be found on Music Shake, Super Best OST, CD Single Memorial File and the Complete Vocal Collection.
