All-time favourite anime music
As the thread title says, what are your favourite anime music? Be they OP/ED, insert songs or BGMs. I'm not talking about entire OSTs here, but specific pieces which mp3 you keep on your playlist long after the anime has ended, and/or which you find yourself playing every now and then.
My (rather short) list:
Cruel Angel Thesis (Evangelion)
Omega (Jin Roh)
There are other tracks from more recent shows which I really like, but I'm not sure I'll still be listening to them 2 or even 1 year down the road. The above 3 are the ones which I would say have stood the test of time.
hm... well, I like to change up my iPod playlist on a regular basis, but I have several highly ranked songs that I never tired of:
Sadness and Sorrow/Grief and Sorrow/Hokage's Funeral Scene (Naruto - these songs have a very similar sound which is why I group them together... plus I love a lot of Toshiro Masuda's work on the Naruto soundtracks)
Break the Sword of Justice - Tsubasa Chronicles
Starless - Rurouni Kenshin
Butou - Fullmetal Alchemist
The Legend of Ashitaka - Princess Mononoke (also The Journey to the West)
Yuugure No Kaze - My Neighbor Totoro
Alone (Piano Version) - Saiyuki
Compassion/Torn Apart/A Requiem/Will of the Heart/Never Meant to Belong... - all songs by Shiro Sagisu for Bleach (I love almost all of his Bleach music so I keep several of his songs on the list at all times, but these are the ones I never take off it)
Friends - Wolf's Rain
Tatakai No Hate - Yu Yu Hakusho
Ashita Ni Mukatte - Yu Yu Hakusho
Gotta Knock a Little Harder - Cowboy Bebop
No Reply - Cowboy Bebop
Sen No Yoru Wo Koete - Bleach
Madlax - by Yuki Kaijura (I like her work in .hack)
Home Sweet Home (Reborn) - Bleach
I'm a sucker for those instrumental songs that play in the background during the sad/dramatic parts of anime. :P Especially ones with a piano playing. Lol... I just realized that more than half of my iPod is devoted to anime music (and I'm about to add more)
Sorry if its a bit long for an "all-time fav" list, but I listen to music all the time, so I have a lot of favorites. (Seriously, if I wasn't whistling along with my CD player the janitors at school thought something was wrong... they stopped me to ask if I was ok several times on those occasions that my batteries ran dead)
Bleach - Houki Boshi
Bleach - Thank You!
Cowboy Bebop (movie) - Call Me Call Me
Outlaw Star - Tsuki No Ie
Inuyasha - My Will
Inuyasha - Come
Naruto - Seishun Kyosoukyoku
Naruto - Go!
Love Hina - Kimi Saeriba
FLCL - Hybrid Rainbows
FLCL - Funny Bunny
FLCL - Back Seat Dog
FLCL - Crazy Sunshine
I have hundreds... I don't feel like searching
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
