Help Me Compile A Non-Weeaboo Playlist

Thanks to Lain, I have been hooked on Duvet (which was performed by Bôa, not to be confused with BoA). Now, I’ve been meaning to compile a non-weeaboo playlist of English anime songs, with the noble intent of suppressing my power levels.

So, help? I don’t know much, aside from Oasis (Eden of the East), Ally Kerr (Mushishi), Warren Wiebe (Gundam X), Yoko Kanno and Friends (GitS: SAC, Wolf’s Rain, etc), and whatnot. Oh, and ELISA’s ef songs are out, because.

    One of my favourites are OP and ED from Kaiba (both english of course).

    Paranoid Android doesn’t count.

    Could check out Blue Gender’s dubbed OP/ED, which are pretty darn good IMO. Too bad the ED has no full English version.

  3. omo says:

    The Delgados
    Juno Reactor
    Backstreet Boys
    Daft Punk (tho this is a bit overexposed)
    Origa (I guess it’s YK and Friends, but she has solo stuff)
    Maybe some Mika Arisaka.
    Maybe Galneryus
    Maybe Bless4 (loool)

    I’ll list all of the songs I know:

    Pursuing My True Self – Shihoko Hirata
    We’re not Alone – Coldrain
    White Wishes (English version) – Boa

    I don’t know many 😦

    (also the first and last are from games, but they sort of count)

    Mushishi’s opening

  6. TheBigN says:

    Franz Ferdinand
    Duran Duran

  7. MAGIC

    You know what I’m talkin’ bout ^_~

  8. Our good friend Ottocycle has compiled a list:

  9. Delgados is the strongest. I don’t know anything that hasn’t been named though.

  10. ToastCrust says:

    Wow, I never thought about hidden power level like this.

  11. Oh. no one mentioned the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack yet. Call Me Call Me, Gotta Knock a Little Harder, Don’t Bother None, etc.

    Incidentally, I’ve made this playlist before lol.

  12. Obviously, Fire Bomber English Fire.

  13. Ian K says:

    Jean-Jacques Burnel (Gankutsuou)
    Nujabes (Samurai Champloo)
    RZA (Afro Samurai)
    John Sykes (LEgend of the Black Heaven)
    Becca (Kuroshitsuji & Ultraviolet Code 044)

    And, depending on your tolerance for engrish:

    Boom Boom Satellites (Bonen no Xamdou, Appleseed, & Vexille)
    Mell (Black Lagoon & Rideback)
    Yasushi Ishii (Hellsing TV)

  14. I thought for a moment that you were looking for songs that weren’t from any manga or anime for a change.

    Guess I’ll keep my enka songs to myself.

    It isn’t anime music as such, but “Twilight” by ELO is probably required listening. It’s been the rallying theme song of the modern otaku generation since 1983, after all.

    I bet Duvet got stuck in your head for days like Lain getting hooked to the Wired.

    As for the songs, sorry, I can’t contribute. I practically have Duvet and Falling Down in my head right now.
