Now that all the songs have been released from the Mary Stayed Out All Night OSTs, I can safely say this is one of my favorite OSTs from any drama. It’s not terribly edgy or sophisticated, but the music is lovely to listen to and the songs have a touch of heart and warmth. Even the silly Bus song turns out to be adorably kooky! Plus, I just wanted to do a post where I could unearth that now-ancient official still from the fantasy wedding sequence in episode 1 of M3. Looking at it again at this juncture, who has butterflies plus warm and fuzzies in your belly?
Of all the songs on the OST, my favorite is now “I Will Promise You”, which just dropped two days ago. I thought it would be “Hello, Hello”, but then Jang Geun Seok‘s remake of Masaharu Fukuyama‘s “Don’t Cry” was a new singing accomplishment for him. It was honest and spare, a song where his voice and emotion are the key to conveying the meaning behind the lyrics.

I totally got misty-eyed when I watched the MV of “I Will Promise You” set against some of the sweetest OTP scenes in the drama thus far. If there was ever a drama made just for compiling MVs of all the shippy scenes between the OTP, then M3 is that drama for you!
