Really enjoying Sumika right now.

Like this track:

Soda

Also I have noticed how the mid-song rock guitar solo still lives on in Japanese music Grinning

Now if only the sax solo were revived.

Not yet.  Will work my way down little by little.  It's been a little too sugary to take in large doses.

crying

I like this song and I don't know why:

Spontania - Kimi No Subete Ni (feat JuJu)

The female vocal somehow hooks me even if it's not one of my favourite or first nods.

One day I hope someone will go through this thread and check out the samples.

A few other tracks in randomness:

I discovered Esno via Daoko who did a collaberation with Esno.

This is probably the best track (21 by Esno) but honestly almost every other track is good too, it's sung in a combination of French and Japanese.  

Oracion by Ai Kayano is the ending from No Game No Life.

Fly High! by Burnout Syndromes is a high energy tune from the excellent sports series Haikyu!!

Dreamriser by Choucho is a sugary sweet anime pop song that sticks in your head for days. It was the opening theme from Girls Und Panzer.

Back to R and B now with Candy by Crystal Kay who I found through her collabs with M-Flo.

Holy shine by daisy x daisy, Fairy Tail artist who has several cracking tracks but outside of that is a desolate wasteland.

Hey Boy by Emi Hinouchi is another R&B artist found through M-Flo collabs.

Mirai by Garnidelia, who did the song for Kill La Kill is a nice mellow ballad

Escape by Hemenway was a theme tune to Eureka Seven AO. It's a high energy rock/pop song that wouldn't sound out of place in Haikyu!

Boys be Ambitious by Hi-Fi Camp is a great feel good pop song that was an ending to Fairy Tail

Yubi Bouenkyou by Insane is a catchy pop fuelled opening to Magi.

Tsunaida Te by Lil'B is from Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood

Beach Star High vs Verbal is an awesome R&B song about days of youth

Egao No Mahou by Magic Party is a great anthemic tune from Fairy Tail. It's hard to find good Magic Party tracks to listen to on the internet.

Someone read this and put me out of my misery.

Ideal White by Mashiro Ayano, I have no idea where I latched onto this tune. It's a Garnedelia style song

Be Mine! by maaya sakamoto is the OP to World Conquest Zvezda Plot.

Ski Gold Rush by Midicronica is awesome. Midicronica is like an R&B crossed with Elecronica/synth group. Really funky shit.

Me and Creed by Mika Kobayashi is one of her songs from Blue Exorcist, nice drums. She sings in English too, very anthemic.

Uchouten Jinsei by Milktub is a bit like Bakuden Johnny. Very cool retro-ish sounding sound with gravelly vocals and riffing guitars.

Kyoukai no Kanata by Minori Chihara is the opening from Beyond the Boundary

Change is another Miwa song, opening for Bleach.

There's a lot more to come.

LOL I love the lyrics to these tracks. I normally don't pay attention to the lyrics on Japanese songs as I can't understand the language but these are precious and so awesome:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=su0FCBRwVpE

It's about this girl who makes music tracks night and day

And this one has lyrics PERFECT for anime - unrequited love etc

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jP1kz8aPywA​

This song lyrics are about Aliens who crash land on earth and then live everyday lives:

Such a plenitude of links. I'll check a few after Rufus Wainwright.

I know a bit of Japanese music, such as DJ Ozma (pop/rock/hip-hop/dance/etc, and genuinely one of my favourite groups), Midori (jazz punk), An Café (pop rock/oshare kei), 385 (more jazz punk), and Yosi Horikawa (instrumental electronic music).

These two I like, particularly the first one (added an album to Spotify). Not a fan of the images though.

I haven't heard of any of those. Thanks for the links. Will dig into them later.

I had to search for the definition of Waifu. Apparently they are your 2D significant other and there's no sexual aspect to it, it would be considered a sin to fap to them. Wtf?

If I'm not mistaken, the term comes from Azumanga Daioh, a series that I've actually got on DVD (and I've even got the full manga collection).

You're my vgpress waifu.

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere  
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst  
Are full of passionate intensity.

Oh my, how have I been asleep on Goodwarp?

Sumika like band.

Also on the Future Bass tracks, lyrics ones I linked earlier, the difference between listening to them on good headphones or a decent sound system is VAST compared to using your computer speakers. You barely hear half the stuff going on in the background.
