"Kiss Me Good-Bye" is the third single released by Angela Aki. The title track was used as the theme song to the game Final Fantasy XII. Originally "Kiss from a rose", a cover of the Batman Forever ending theme song performed by Seal, was planned for the single as track #3. However, it was later changed to a cover of Procol Harum's song "A Whiter Shade of Pale" and renamed "Aoi Kage"."Kiss from a rose" would later appear on Angela's fourth single, "This Love". "Kiss Me Good-Bye" is the Japanese version of the song, whereas "Kiss Me Good-Bye (featured in FINAL FANTASY XII)" is the English version. Both versions have different arrangements to them; the single version sounds more like an Angela song, whereas the Final Fantasy version sounds more cinematic. The first press of the single comes with an exclusive DVD, which included the music video for the song. Also includes were stickers of the main Final Fantasy XII characters. This single reached #6 on Oricon charts, charted for eighteen weeks and sold a total of 68,968 copies.
