This took me a lot longer than it probably should have because my lolita music is hard to divide from my music in general. As a result, the first things I think of when I think "lolita music" are the music that I listen to while wearing lolita, things like symphonic metal and psychedelic rock covers of Scots folk ballads. Which are... well, not lolita. At all. Unless your definition of lolita involves large, viking-like men shredding their electric guitars and bands with unpronounceable names.
Come to think of it, that would be kind of hilarious.
In the end, I was able to find music that I loved that actually felt like it matched my wardrobe. I went with the pieces of music that I would choose as a soundtrack to a wardrobe video if I ever made one.
1. "Shy Boy" by Secret
This one's on here because it has a delightful old-school girl group flair that I adore. It makes me super happy both because of the sound and because of the ridiculously adorable video.
2. "Throw it in the Bag" by M.C. Melody Doll
3. . Mononoke Hime (Music Box) by Joe Hisaishi
I love music box arrangements of songs. They range from incredibly creepy to soothing to sparkly and cheerful, and I love that. I think it fits beautifully with lolita, too.
4. "Doll on a Music Box" from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
5. "The Depths Below" by The Cog is Dead
Part of what really got me into lolita was a love of Victoriana-inspired things. Steampunk is another extension of that love. Sometimes, I like to combine the two.
7. "Carousel" by S. J. Tucker
I'm just going to let this one speak for itself.
Utena fans, I'm sorry. This makes me cry, too. Anyway, this song is from my favorite anime of all time. I can't tell you why it feels like lolita to me. It just does.
9. "What If" by Emilie Autumn
10. "Kaze Ni Naru" by Ayano Tsuji
