What are some of your favorite songs that you listen to often? One of my favorite songs is Aterisk (Bleach Opening 1)

Catchy tune.

Does he say "G. O. D. Why?" in the middle?

If you're not familiar with anime the main character (Ichigo) is a Death God and basically runs around sending hollows (lost souls) to heaven or hell.

Yeah, but I mean the music (I don't think it was made for the show?). I was just wondering if it was a Christian band or something.

Not that all religious music is automatically bad. But I'm wondering if I'm listening to something about Jesus when I can't understand the lyrics ;)


How about this?

"I fall from grace"

It's interesting how much Japanese music draws on English music and references religious concepts. It's hard to know what it means in the minds of the writers.

Oh. "GOOD Bye."
Oh, cool. No Jesus stuff, as far as I can tell.
Stuff about stars and living on in memory? Kinda interesting.


Yoko Kanno is usually a good call.

This one's a little slow, but pretty cool:

Pretty unique approach. Great beat.

Not sure if evangelical >_>
I'm going to guess it isn't, but there are some serious allusions in there.

I only listen to Justin Bieber. That's true music. #LoveBieber
I'm joking.
I actually have a very long list of favourite songs (are only anime songs allowed? I hope not).
These are some of the ones I often listen to:

For evil to prevail, good people must stand aside and do nothing.

Anime songs aren't the only ones allowed. Please share your favorite music with everyone no matter what the genre!
