Oku Hanako 10th Anniversary Rental Best ~NON STOP CD~

I have no idea where this thing came from, but there was apparently a “rental limited release” CD released on August 19, 2015, titled “Oku Hanako 10th Anniversary Rental Best ~NON STOP CD~” / 奥華子10th Anniversary レンタルベスト 〜NON STOP CD〜. I’m not sure how this is specifically a “rental best”, nor why they would call it “non-stop”.

According to the blurb on Pony Canyon’s post, it’s meant to be the most representative of Oku Hanako, taking songs from all over her discography, most notably Garnet / ガーネット and Kawaranai Mono / 変わらないもの, the two songs that made her famous.

The tracklist isn’t numbered in the post, but it is complete (14 songs):

I didn’t think them above because they’re the wrong versions, but I have previously posted the hikigatari versions of Yasashii Hana and Koi.

I will assume that these are the arranged versions where possible, which would leave 2 hikigatari tracks out of 14: “Kaette Oide” and “Saigo no Koi”.

I like this selection, and if this is the order that they’re going with, then I have no complaints. Is it the most representative? I guess it could be better, but I’m sure there’s more than one set that could be considered representative.

If you were tasked with compiling a list of songs that are most representative of Oku Hanako, what would they be? Leave your answer in the comments!
