Favourite Japanese Music?

Post by Kodi » Mon 03.07.2005 6:25 pm

Hmm what is your favourite Japanes Music. (I would ask this in japanese but I am lacking a bit of vocab to fill out a sentance hehe).

Ayumi Hamasaki, I have been listening to for a looong time now. Several from anime series like Ghost in the Shell, Chobits (hehe), and a few other artists. It's hard to find the good artists though? What do you lot listen too?

I like to listen to Card Captor Sakura songs(There are A LOT of songs just from that show and they're awesome !!) I also listen to other anime themes but CCS are the main songs I listen to and I also like that song from Rurouni Kenshin 'Heart of Sword'. Its an awesome song. Thats mostly about it. And I like that Teen Titans theme song from Ami Yumi :D

Does anyone know any Japanese artisits that are well known here or in Japan? I'd like to listen to their songs if anyone knows any :)

My two favorite Japanese artists by far are Yoko Kanno ("Cowboy Bebop", "Escaflowne", "Ghost in the Shell", and many others) and Joe Hisaishi ("Mononoke Hime", pretty much anything Ghibli). They both have a style that sets them apart from the standard J-Pop other artists tend have. I'm also fond of the music from "Shin Seiki Evangelion"; the sheer amount of music written for it alone, along with the different renditions (anyone who has seen the track list for the S2 Works knows what I mean) is staggering. On the more J-Pop side, I love the songs from the various "Slayers" series.

I like... Hikaru Utada (or Utada Hikaru, if you will). I like her melodies, her beats. She can get really funky. I also like BoA's danceable pop music. She's a very good dancer, a powerful singer. (She's Korean, but she sings in Japanese, too). There's also a little bit of Mr. Children, GLAY, Ayumi Hamasaki, Miwako Okuda, DEEN, Rimi Natsukawa... I could go on and on. :p

Anyone remember Loudness? That'll date you for sure. I'm sure there have to be other dinosaurs on this site that can remember them.

Inner Universe is the opening song for Ghost in the Shell: SAC, and Lithium Flower is the ending song. :) I used to have nearly the whole OST on my hard drive, but then media player deleted the folder some how... *rolls her eyes*

:D

Whats my favourite music? Right now its the soundtrack for Kannaduki no Miko *fangirlish squeals* ^_^
