... there are some more, but these are the singers I love most.

I agree, asian kung fu generation is an amazing band. they're pretty popular too. they have amazing and catchy songs and songs you can just sing along to or listen to when your not in the best of moods. i love them.

It's back up! Here.

And I thought I'd chuck in a bit of Candy Girl, too, which you can find here.

I can't post anything seeing as I'm on the work computer (I'm surprised I can actually get on this site without too many problems). Maybe tonite if I don't forget...

I have a lot of different songs and japanese singers that I love. So to list them all is too much trouble and not only for me xD.

My favorite artist is Yui. Some of her songs:
Rolling Star - Some people may recognize this song *cough*Bleach*cough* ^-^
Tokyo - It sounds very sad, but on the other hand (if you find the lyrics) it's also a happy song ^-^
Life - Bleach ending song ^-^
ChE.R.RY - It's I nice or what? :P

Since I love a new song every day... :lol: here's the latest:
They were mentioned before: Remioromen (レミオロメン) - Sakura

I'm surprised no one has mentioned The Brilliant Green yet! They're one of my favourite Japanese bands! :D

A song you should all definitely check out is Ai no ai no hoshi....awesome!

another one is Brownie the cat

If anyone is interested I can tab out (for guitar) most of Brownie the cat....or at least how I hear it :lol:

For the slightly heavier music fans there's Plastic Tree - Ghost (really awesome intro)

and some of their lighter more rock/pop tunes:

Every thread like this I scan through, I notice NO ONE mentions Boredoms. How can this be?
