"K.K. Lament" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It has a sad-sounding melody. As the Japanese title suggests, this song is based on a style of Japanese music/singing called enka. This type of music can be described as sentimental ballads, blending an almost lounge-like vocal performance with emotional themes, like from love, loss, death, and other hardships.
