Beat Crusaders - Hit in the USA
The opening theme for BECK, it's a simple but very catchy rock song, with deliciously simple lyrics.
Kings of Convenience - Sorry or Please
The KoC make very nice, quiet and relaxing music -- but when you listen to the lyrics, you find that not all is well up in Norway... This particular song is very nice because it paints a very vivid picture with simple, understated sentences.
Ladytron vs Kings of Convenience - Little Kids
A Ladytron remake/remix of another beautiful KoC song. Instead of the quiet guitars, we get the thumping bass-lines and minimal synth loops of Ladytron, giving the song the menacing undertone it deserves.
Maaya Sakamoto - Yubiwa
Ending theme for the Escaflowne movie, performed by my favourite vocalist. She has such a beautiful voice, and the song's lyrics are about loss and hope. The rythmic changes add to the mix.
Read or Die opening theme
Very upbeat, great tempo, James Bond-like. What's not to like?
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater opening theme
Also very James Bond-like, but quite different. Very odd lyrics, which add to the amusement.
Cameo - Word Up
Great dance song, if you can stomach the nasal whining sound of the singer. Which I can. ;) Also my favourite song for DDR.
New Order - Blue Monday
Thumping bass-line and crazy drum action. The first dance-classic of all time.
Cocteau Twins - Blue Bell Knoll
Ethereal sounds coupled with a beautiful voice.
Crowded House - Four Seasons in One Day
It's a song that klik sang for her singing course. I didn't know it before that, but the lyrics and the melody are beautiful.
I'm not tagging anyone, but feel free to pick this up if you want.
