Doki Doki Literature Club! OST

These are all the basic backing tracks that are included in the official soundtrack, it does not include the variants and other eerie BGM in the game. The album was released in September of 2017, when the game came out, and is available for purchase on Spotify, Youtube Music, Apple Music, Deezer, iHeartRadio, and PlayMusic. It also comes with the DDLC Fanpack. It comes with 15 songs and has a 5-star rating on the iTunes store.

1. Doki Doki Literature Club! (Main Theme)

Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_OST_-_Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_(Main_Theme)

Doki Doki Literature Club! OST - Doki Doki Literature Club! (Main Theme)

This is the main theme of the game which plays whenever the player loads up the game. It is the only song other than "Your Reality" to include words, although the only lyrics in the song are "Doki Doki!". When the "Doki Doki!" plays, the girls and the menu options will appear on screen allowing the player to start or load the game. It also plays various times throughout the game during club meetings.

This song is 2 minutes and 7 seconds long, and the main chord sequence for the song is C major, A minor, F major, G major. The only other chord in the song is D minor and it occurs once towards the end of the song. A majority of the BGM follows a similar pattern. Themes and melodies from this song are recurring throughout the game. "Doki Doki", from the title of the song (and game), refers to the sound of a beating heart in Japanese symbolism.

One of the most prominent instruments in the music is piano. The background image for this song on the OST is the image of the girls from the main menu screen and the logo of the game.

The player can access the file for this song, "1.ogg," by using a Ren'Py asset extraction tool such as Shizmob's rpatool to extract the game/audio.rpa file within the Doki Doki Literature Club installation. "1.ogg" as well as all other music files will be found within the game/bgm/ folder.

2. Ohayou Sayori!

Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_OST_-_Ohayou_Sayori!

Doki Doki Literature Club! OST - Ohayou Sayori!

This is the first song that plays when the game is started up in Act 1 and Act 4. It is played when the player first meets Sayori on the protagonist's street as he makes his way to school. It is the only song in the OST that does not include the piano (other than Just Monika), and it is also the only song in the game before meeting Monika. It also plays various times out of school throughout the game.

The song is 2 minutes and 43 seconds long, and the main chord progression is F major, B flat major, C major. There are no other chords in the song. This is in contrast to the majority of the soundtrack, which is in the key of C major.

Ohayou means "it's early", and can also mean "good morning". This makes sense considering that this is a morning before school and is early in the game. The background image of the song is the same as the one for the main theme.

This song can be found under 2.ogg.

3. Dreams of Love and Literature

5. Play With Me

Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_OST_-_Play_With_Me

Doki Doki Literature Club! OST - Play With Me

This song plays during club meetings. It is faster paced than the other songs, but fits in the same key as the main theme.

There is also a bridge in the music at 57 seconds which includes E minor, A major, E major, and G major chords.

The background image of the song is the same as the one for the main theme. The song can be found under "6.ogg."

6. Poem Panic!

Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_OST_-_Poem_Panic!

Doki Doki Literature Club! OST - Poem Panic!

This song plays during Yuri and Natsuki's fight in Act 1, which Sayori puts an end to and makes both of them feel better. It is seen as comedic and is supposed to be a lighthearted and funny song. The audio of the song includes "boing" sounds, which symbolizes things going haywire.

There are two main melodies in this song. The main chords in the song are C major and A minor, as well as E minor. The minor chords bring through the feel of conflict. It does not contain melodies from the other songs.

The title of the song is alliteration to make it seem less serious and fun. The background image of the song is the same as the one for the main theme. The song can be found under "7.ogg."

7. Daijoubu!

Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_OST_-_Daijoubu!

Doki Doki Literature Club! OST - Daijoubu!

This song plays during Act 1, when the protagonist is out of school.

"Daijoubu" means "alright" or "its fine", which is ironic, since later in the game it becomes evident that everything is not "fine".

The chord progression of this song is F major, B flat major, D minor, C major. It is a very calming song, and like most of the other songs, makes the player lower their guard, causing the horror of the game to come unexpectedly.

The background image of the song is the same as the one for the main theme. It can be found under "8.ogg."

This song is unique in that it is one of the only songs in the primary Act 1 soundtrack that has no Act 2 renditions of any sort, with "Sayo-nara" being the other one for obvious reasons (the main menu theme, "Just Monika," "I Still Love You," and "Your Reality" don't have renditions either, but most of those are exclusive to Acts 3 and 4, with the Main Menu theme being an obvious exception to both cases).

8. My Feelings

Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_OST_-_My_Feelings

Doki Doki Literature Club! OST - My Feelings

This song is a lot slower than the rest of the songs in the game. It plays during each of the special scenes with the girls in Act 1, in which the player will receive a CG image, and they talk about their feelings, hence the title.

The chord progression is C major, D minor, F major, E minor. The background image of the song is the same as the one for the main theme.

This song can be found under "9.ogg."

9. My Confession

Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_OST_-_My_Confession

Doki Doki Literature Club! OST - My Confession

This song plays during the scene in Sayori's room when she confesses to the protagonist that she has depression, thus its sad and slow theme.

The chords in the song are G major, and F major, and the song contains a lot of arpeggios. The background image of the song is the same as the one for the main theme. This is the last song in the OST with this background, aside from the credits. It can be found under "10.ogg."

10. Sayo-nara

Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_OST_-_Sayo-nara

Doki Doki Literature Club! OST - Sayo-nara

This song plays when the protagonist finds Sayori hanging in her room on the day of the festival. The start of the song sounds like a broken tape, and the majority of the songs has a haunting voice-like sound, which plays over a distorted xylophone-type instrument and a piano.

This song contains distorted versions of the main theme and "Dreams of Love and Literature". Sayo-nara obviously refers to Sayori's name, which contains "Sayo" and the word Sayonara, which means "goodbye".

The chord progression is the same as the main theme, with an exception for the glitch audio at the start. It is 2 minutes and 37 seconds long. The background image of this song is the image of the girls from the main menu and the logo, except Sayori is missing from the picture. The song can be found under "d.ogg."

11. Just Monika

Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_OST_-_Just_Monika.

Doki Doki Literature Club! OST - Just Monika.

This audio is not as much music, but is more of sounds that included distorted and faint audios of other BGM, bursting sounds, and outer space-like audio. It is like a mix of broken game sounds and galactic noises. It repeats the same thing over and over for 3 minutes and 22 seconds.

This audio plays when the game restarts for Act 3 and the player is alone with Monika, hence the name, Just Monika.

The chords in this song are a mix of G major, F sharp major, and A sharp major chords, though it does not have a specific tune. The background image for this audio is the image of Monika from the main menu screen, and the game logo. It is the same as the other backgrounds, except the other girls are missing. This song can be found under "m1.ogg."

12. I Still Love You

Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_OST_-_I_Still_Love_You

Doki Doki Literature Club! OST - I Still Love You

This audio plays after the player deletes Monika. Its title comes from Monika being unable to hate the player for doing so.

This audio is 2 minutes and 4 seconds long, it is the same tune playing over and over again. An echoed sound, and then a short piano segment. Like "Just Monika", it sounds sort of galactic. The chords in this song are G major, and F major, with the occasional G minor.

The background image here is the same as the one for "Just Monika". It can be found under "monika-end.ogg."

13. Your Reality (Credits)

Doki_Doki_Literature_Club!_OST_-_Your_Reality_(Credits)

Doki Doki Literature Club! OST - Your Reality (Credits)

This is the final song in the game that plays when the player reaches the end credits. It begins with Monika saying "Uh, Can you hear me? Hi it's me! Uh so y'know how I've been like...practicing piano, and stuff? And, I'm not really any good at it yet, like, at all. But, I wrote you a song, and I was kinda hoping that I could show it to you, cuz I worked, really, really hard on it. So, yeah!". The credits then proceed to roll and Monika plays the song.

This song is about Monika's feelings throughout the game. She mentions "this world of infinite choices", which is sarcastic because she is in a game with a script, and since she was not given an ending, she will never find "that special day". She also mentions the other girls in "when you're here, everything that we do is fun for them anyway". She expands on not having a special day with "If this world won't write me an ending". She also says "Does my pen only write bitter words for those who are dear to me?”, which shows that she knows she did horrible things to the ones she cares about. The most emotional part of the song is "And in your reality, if I don't know how to love you, I'll leave you be", which shows that she knows she had done wrong things, and that there is no way for her to ever be with the player, so she will let them go, out of her love for them.

This song is the only one in the game with lyrics and a voice actor, Jillian Ashcraft, who plays Monika. It is 1 minute and 47 seconds long. the chord progression is the same as the main theme. The tune and melody is also the same as the main theme, except more of the piano than other instruments, and a few variations towards the end and the third chorus. The image for the background is the same as the one for the main theme. The song can be found under "credits.ogg" (despite Monika entering the command to play "ddlc.ogg").

"Okay Everyone" Character Specific Versions

Each girl has her own version of "Okay Everyone" whenever the player reads one of her poems. These are on Disc 2 of the DDLC Fanpack. These are thought to be the "themes" for each girl. They are all the same length, but will repeat as necessary in the game. During game-play, the music will fade perfectly from the original version of "Okay Everyone" into the version of whichever girl's poem is being read, all while keeping at the same spot in the music.

Variants

These are other versions of the songs in the OST, usually modified to suit the events happening in the game when played, or to sound more creepy to fit the horror of the game.

Note that all of these names are unofficial and are given by the fandom.

1. Doki Doki Literature Club!

A rendition of the main menu theme, notably used during the first day when The Protagonist enters the club room for the first time, and used again after everyone finishes sharing their poems. This track is unique in that it is the only extra audio file not present in the soundtrack that is nevertheless used in Act 1 (the rest are either exclusive to Acts 2 through 4 or are only triggered in special cases). The song can be found under "3.ogg" within the background music files.

2. Ohayou Monika!

A slightly different rendition of "Ohayou Sayori!" that seems to slowly increase in speed and pitch but at a very slow rate and it's used during the beginning of Act 2 [Confirmation Needed]. It can be found under the file name "2g2.ogg."

3. Kowareta Literature Club!

A truncated rendition of "Doki Doki Literature Club," marked by off-pitch notes. These off notes may be a reference to Monika's imperfect music playing (even though the song is mostly woodwinds, while Monika plays a piano). It can be found under the file name "3g.ogg."

4. Konbanwa Sayori!

A muffled rendition of "Doki Doki Literature Club!" combined with various wet, fleshy noises, cracking, and squeaking. It is played after the second special poem in Act 2 should the red vein screen be triggered (See Random Occurences). It can be found under the file name "3g2.ogg."

5. Abrupt Awakening

A short bust of static, followed by a sine wave sequence. It plays if you clicked any glitched words during the second or third poem minigames during Act 2, interrupting the regular "Dreams of Love and Poetry" (See Random Occurences). It can be found under the file name "4g.ogg."

6. Okay, Everyone! (Ghost)

A rendition of Natsuki's "Okay, Everyone!" theme, with missing notes, and a repeated muffled clanging in the background. It plays just prior to Natsuki's neck snap jump scare in Act 2, as the screen darkens and her eyes and mouth become covered in back squares. It can be found under the file name "5_ghost.ogg".

7. Okay, Everyone! (Obsessed)

A rendition of Yuri's "Okay, Everyone!" theme, seemingly run through an extreme audio compressor. It is played for Yuri's third poem in Act 2.

It can be found under the file name "5_yuri2.ogg."

8. Play With Me (Distorted)

A distorted rendition of "Play With Me" as run through an audio compressor. It is played during Natsuki's scenes Act 2 whenever her eyes are replaced with large pixels and her mouth is distorted [Confirmation Needed], as well as briefly during Act 2 in the "No Pupil Yuri" sequence should you write three poems for Yuri. It can be found under the file name "6g.ogg."

9. Play With Me (Outside)

A muffled rendition of "Play With Me." It is played during Act 2 when The Protagonist is outside of the classroom searching for Yuri. It can be found under the file name "6o.ogg."

13. My Sanity

A truncated, speed-up rendition of "My Feelings." It plays at the end of the third day of Act 2 after Natsuki leaves and Yuri is discussing her responsibilities to the club.

This adds to the abrupt changes of tone between Yuri's main dialog expressing concern over Natsuki and her dismissal of her. The song abruptly ends when a small explosion of blood bursts from Yuri's undistorted eyeball, before the game reverts to Yuri's standard dialog. It can be found under the file "9g.ogg."

14. Yuri's Confession

A rendition of "My Confession." This one has crackling sounds throughout the background, as well as points where the song is reversed briefly.
