Simple and Clean is the theme song for Kingdom Hearts, written and sung by Utada Hikaru, featured in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, as well as their remakes, and is also featured in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.
Hikari is the original, Japanese version of "Simple and Clean"; it was originally released on Utada's Deep River album. It was used in the Japanese versions of Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. The name Hikari (光) literally means Light in Japanese, a universal force in the Kingdom Hearts universe.
PLANiTb made remixes of both "Simple and Clean" and "Hikari". The PLANiTb version is faster, longer, and has more of a dance mix feel to it than Utada's original song. A shortened version of the remix is heard during the opening movie of Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.
An orchestral arrangement of "Hikari" can be heard in Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts Final Mix in the opening menu cinematic which appears if the player lets the opening menu sit for about fifteen seconds. The orchestrated version is also featured at the end of each scenario of Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep. The orchestrated version is used during the opening movie of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.
Another, softer arrangement of Hikari plays in Kingdom Hearts when Sora stabs himself with the Keyblade of People's Hearts.
