  19. [2007] - Innocence (Avril Lavigne)
  20. [2005] - When I'm Gone (Enimem)
For anime songs, I love Yui Horie because of her variety. She can do slow songs, techno pop songs, meaningful songs, etc... I also love Yui Makino's singing voice because it's so cute. In general though, I tend to favor upbeat songs over lyrics, and some instrumental tracks.

For non-anime songs, I have a good affinity with punk and hip-hop. I also like some pop songs if they're catchy enough. I like to look for meaning in songs, and surprisingly, some of the best ones I found are in hip-hop. It is really poetry and music combined, two of my most appreciative art forms.

So, what are your favorites?

Since I'm really tired atm, just going to post my non-anime songs...not in any particular order.

1. Forty-Six & 2 - Tool
2. Lateralus - Tool
3. My Iron Lung - Radiohead
4. I Get It - Chevelle
5. Hysteria - Muse
6. Knights of Cydonia - Muse
7. One- Metallica
8. All These Things That I've Done - The Killers
9. Crownless - Nightwish
10. Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

I like all kinds of music, but I favor metal and progressive rock. While I appreciate meaningful lyrics or lyrics that I can relate to, most of the time it's the music that draws me first.

In no particular (these are the more memorable j-pop ones and considered my all-time favorites):

"Trust You" - Yuna Itoh
"Fields of Hope" - Rie Tanaka
"Innocent Starter" - Nana Mizuki
"Sore Ga, Ai Deshou" - Mikuni Shimokawa
"Proof" - Mell
"Winter Sleep" - Olivia
"A Little Pain" - Olivia
"Orange" - Rie Kugimiya, Eri Kitamura, Yui Horie
"All the Way" - Mikuni Shimokawa
"Euforia" - Yui Makino

..There's more but I can't be bothered to list 'em. I tend to love the j-pop songs that have to deal with my infinite love for Fate in some way. Mizuki Nana's my favorite ofc.

In no particular (non-Japanese music):

"So Into You" - Fabulous ft. Tamia
"Where is the Love" - Black Eyed Peas
"Numb" - Linkin Park
"In the End" - Linkin Park
"Vindicated" - Dashboard Confessional
"Superhuman" - Chris Brown
"If you're not the one" - Daniel Bedingfield
"I'll be missing you" - P. Diddy ft. Evans (I dunno)

Ofc there's more, some of these depict my relationship with Fate and involves my dedication and love to her once again. :v

Hmm, listing particular songs would be hard for me, I'm thinking of several artists/groups but it's rarely for one unique song.


In a particular category, X-Japan. Most likely my all-time favorite group, with a rather unique sound. I'm not that fan of Visual Rock otherwise, but I've got a particular feeling with their songs, hard to explain.

Anime music:

-See-Saw, quite all they'e done
-Angela, mostly for Shangri-La (Fafner OP) and Gravitation (Heroic Age OP)
-Nana Mizuki, I like most of her songs. If only one, let's say Eternal Blaze.
-Sachi Tainaka (Fate/SN songs)
-The May'n/Megumi Nakajima songs that we hear in Macross Frontier are overall great. Like Lion (OP2)
-Libera me from hell - Gurren Lagann insert song. I don't know any other song from that artist, but this one is a true incarnation of epicness.

And probably tons of individual songs that I don't recall at the moment. But for most, it's the voice that catches me. I can't care about the lyrics since I don't speak Japanese.

Non-Japanese music:
-Metallica. Also a huge fan here. If I can choose only one, then Master of Puppets
-Nightwish, mainly thinking of the entire Wishmaster album
-Scorpions - Still loving you. T_T (among others)
-Sonata Arctica in general
-Rhapsody, same.
-Linkin Park, some songs like In the End

Yeah, I've been into the rock/metal music for a long time, before being an anime fan I guess. So most of the stuff I usually listen are either this, or anime related.

Non anime (no order):
Mahler- symphony no. 2
Stravinsky- Rite of Spring
Vaughan Williams- Symphony no. 3
Beethoven- Kreutzer Sonata
Dvorak- Symphony no. 9
Liszt- Mephisto Waltz
Britten- Simple Symphony

Are all pieces I've listened to over and over.

Well is difficult for me to choose specific songs as there are too many thata I like. But some of the artists I like: Linkin Park, Pink Floid, Daft Punk, Avril Lavigne, System of a Down, Lady Sovereign, Simple Plan, Infected Mushroom, Green Day, Nightwish and Mamonas Assassinas. Oh and I absolutely love Weird Al Yancovic musics! His parodies and original songs are hilarious.

Post by Teiran » Thu Apr 02, 2009 8:56 am

Hmm, I want to play. I'll give you a sampling of a dozen of each type, starting with anime songs.

I've included (youtube) links to some of the songs that I especially want to share, since they might not be familiar to a lot of people. I listened to a lot of these songs again in order to compile these lists, a project which had two effects: 1) making me appreciate everything all over again, and 2) making me feel old. Oh well.

  • Geki! Teikoku Kageki-dan - Yokoyama Chisa et al., the "Hana-gumi" (Sakura Taisen OP)
  • Give a Reason - Hayashibara Megumi (Slayers Next OP)
  • Allegro Cantabile - Suemitsu & the Suemith (Nodame Cantabile OP)
  • Pure Snow - Sasaki Yuuko (Himiko-den OP)
  • Melissa - Porno Graffitti (Fullmetal Alchemist OP1)
  • Saikyou Pare Parade - Hirano Aya, Chihara Minori, Gotou Yuuko (Haruhi radio show OP... okay, not really an anime song; whatever)
  • Sore ga, ai deshou - Shimokawa Mikuni (Full Metal Panic! Fumoffu? OP)
  • Hishoku no Sora - Kawada Mami (Shakugan no Shana OP1) (Should you disapprove of the way I vote, you can pretty much blame this song; this is how it all started.)
  • The Light Before We Land - The Delgados (Gunslinger Girl OP)
  • Mysterious Eyes - Garnet Crow (Meitantei Conan OP7) (Garnet Crow has a strange composition: a vocalist, a guitarist, and two keyboardists. I'd say that Nakamura Yuri's charmingly low, slightly husky voice is the key to the band's sound.)
  • Call Me, Call Me - Steve Conte (Cowboy Bebop)
  • Blue - Yamane Mai (Cowboy Bebop) (If this song consisted only of the parts where she belts out the word "free," it would still be amazing. No black and white in the blue.)
Honorable mention, showing my age:
  • Boku de aru tame ni - Flying Kids (You're Under Arrest OP1)
  • 13-gatsu no Kakumei - Fence of Defense (El Hazard: the Alternative World OP)
  • Ooki na Tsubasa - Yano Maki (I remember Ooki na Tsubasa as the gateway song, so it stands a cut above everything else. I have a feeling that if this were strictly a list of my favorite J-pop, Yano Maki songs would take up half the spaces.)
  • Ai no tame ni - Ueto Aya
  • come again - m-flo
  • miss you - m-flo loves melody. & Yamamoto Ryouhei
  • Tenohira, Kurumi - Mr. Children (Two songs, but they're on the same single, so cut me some slack here.)
  • Omoi no mama ni - Nakanomori Band
  • Fuuka Fuusou - Cocco (「悲しみ愛より深い」のはだあれ? This song has simple yet stunning lyrics. There used to be an excellent translation somewhere, but I can't find it anymore.)
  • Hikari - Utada Hikaru (If Yano Maki takes up one half, Hikki might speak for the other half.)
  • Utakata - YeLLOW Generation
  • Niji - Fukuyama Masaharu (ED to Waterboys, not that I've ever watched it.)
  • Yuki no Hana - Nakashima Mika
  • Kiseki - Uemura Kana (I doubt most J-pop fans have even heard of her, which is a shame. Her voice, and this song, had me from the first listen.)
Those are actually just lists of my favorite anime/J-pop songs not sung by Sakamoto Maaya, my favorite Japanese artist thanks in no small part to her body of work with Kanno Youko, and owner of one of the purest singing voices I've ever heard. So, the next list:

Sakamoto Maaya
  • Daniel (23-ji no Ongaku)
  • Toto (23-ji no Ongaku)
  • Vector (Escaflowne Movie Insert)
  • Yubiwa (Escaflowne Movie ED)
  • Yakusoku wa Iranai (Escaflowne OP) (As a sixteen-year-old, she not only sang the OP for Escaflowne, but also provided the voice of its heroine, Kanzaki Hitomi.)
  • Mameshiba (Earth Girl Arjuna OP) (Truth is, I adore this song. I try not to play favorites too much when it comes to Maaya, but this one lights up my face to the same extent that "Daniel" gives me chills.)
  • Tune the Rainbow (RahXephon Movie ED)
  • Purachina/Platinum (Cardcaptor Sakura OP3)
  • Scrap ~ Wakare no Uta (Shounen Alice) (愛と希望の物語り。。。)
  • Yoru (Shounen Alice)
  • Koucha (Lucy)
  • Birds (Easy Listening)
And, lastly, the catch-all category for English-language music:

  • Call and Answer - Barenaked Ladies
  • The Old Apartment - Barenaked Ladies
  • The Ground Beneath Her Feet - U2
  • Every Little Thing She Does is Magic - The Police
  • Leaving Town - Dexter Freebish
  • Gravity - Vienna Teng (I saw her perform this live when I was in college; we're both alumni of the same university. Now she's famous and I'm... here.)
  • Anna Begins - Counting Crows
  • Barely Breathing - Duncan Sheik
  • Auf Achse - Franz Ferdinand
  • Creep - Radiohead
  • Sackcloth and Ashes - The Mr. T Experience
  • Hold Your Colour - Pendulum
What's up with that last list? It makes me sound like I'm sixteen.

I guess I'd say that I generally like songs with vibrant, memorable melodies. Strong vocals go a long way toward that--for some reason I'm partial to female vocalists in Japanese and male vocalists in English, though I've made the odd exception. I'd also venture that I have a natural affinity for any song that features violins.

If I were to compile a fifth list, it'd be instrumental stuff: probably a mishmash of video game music and classical music. This post is seriously tl;dr already, though, and I need to stop editing it.

And if somebody pointed out the fact you have no wings...
...wouldn't mean a thing.

Don't forget the touhou medleys Teiran!

uh yeah I'll keep it short, i find most music dreadfully boring and i pretty much never listen to any forms of music ever

with a few exceptions i guess, I find that I'm able to listen to game music for awhile before i get bored of it, touhou music being a great example, a lot of songs in the Final Fantasy Series are fantastic as well, a lot of games made by Square have some amazing song as well, and there are others that I just cant think of at the moment, but yeah y'all get my point.

I generally like the quiet/slow/calming music the most, so the ARIA songs get a big <3 from me.

Otherwise, I love Chihara Minori, esp Yuki Muon and Paradise Lost.

Mizuki Nana is also awesome, along with Ishida Youko, also Makino Yui (anime only lolol)

Japanese songs
• Koe ga Kikoeru - Yuria (Reconquista OP)
• Mirage Lullaby - Yuria (Shuffle! game OP)
• Shizuku - Miwaku Okuda (GTO 2nd ED)
• Sasakure - Kotoko
• Rime - Kotoko
• Forever - Hashimoto Miyuki (B side of Girls Bravo 1st ED single)
• Namida no Riyuu - Minami Kuribayashi (School Days 7th ED)
• Kizuna - Kousuke Atari (A side of Natsume Yuujinchou ED single)
• Days - 2G70 (Cherry Petals Fall Like Teardrops OP)
• Kentai Life Returns - Tomokazu Sugita (SHnY Kyon character song)

I don't have a particular favorite artist, but I do like some of Kotoko and Yuria's songs. Other than that, I can go for any random artist as long as their song is good and is sung well. I'm very loose on genres also, so I can enjoy pop, musical, etc alike.

Oh and Mushishi's OST is my favorite by the way.

I'm surprised to not see Eden of the East's opening and ending tunes anywhere in this list. Oasis' Falling Down is a pretty nice intro, but the ending theme, School Food Punishment's Futuristic Imagination, is probably my favourite pop/rock tune from any anime since FLCL's all Pillows soundtrack. I ended up getting all of SFP's mini-albums, and found the music to be a really refreshing eletronic rock with some interesting musical textures and a beautiful lead voice." onclick=";return false; - Eden of the East ED
