Will definitely check out your playlist, yui!
About ten years ago there was a K-pop girl group called Sugar that I just adored. How a middle-aged lawyer in Minneapolis heard of them is a long, goofy story.
"Heart and Soul" is just delicious.
Keep calm and brony on!
Are you at all familiar with Wagakki Band? I saw a video of theirs that blew my mind, and they're playing in San Francisco next month. I'm thinking it's a must-see performance!
I'll listen to your playlist, Thanks!!

We listen to a lot of 60's Thai and Vietnamese pop/rock around my household. I used to like The Boredoms but I'm not so much in to noise music anymore.
I'm a fan of Yoko Kanno and The Seatbelts. I see some of their stuff their, I've gotten all the albums and some of her other stuff.
This is one of my favorite songs by The Seatbelts:

I've created a station on Pandora based on The Seatbelts and The Yoshida Brothers come up a lot and they've got some great music as well.
No Shonen Knife?
The developer of a very popular piece of software was a huge fan. He used to say, don't give me money, just support this group. His software was amazing, it protected you from all the crap on the internet. Sadly, he died way too young. Here's to him, allow me to advertise his favorite band one more time!
Proxomitron, the Universal Web Filter, is a filtering web proxy written by Scott R. Lemmon. This program was originally designed to run under Windows 95.
All future development of the program was ceased in 2003 just one year before its author's death on 1 May 2004; even so, Proxomitron is still viable and used on modern Windows platforms such as Vista and Windows 7.License
The program was distributed under a "ShonenWare" license; it was free to use, but if the user purchased a Shonen Knife CD and convinced Lemmon that he or she had listened to it, then Lemmon would consider that to be sufficient to register that user.
I wonder if east and south Asia countries could get together to have a Eurovision style song contest. If so, which country would earn the first "Nul points" ?
I'll definitely check out you list.
I am a big fan of Touhou and ZEN.
This is one of my favorites --
Nothing is true; everything is permitted.
Thanks for this. Always looking for new stuff!
I will definitely check out your list. Most of the Japanese music I am familiar with is from anime and Japanese role playing games. Here is one such song from Tales of Symphonia that I really like:
I have the entire Loudness pre-english catalog on vinyl, all of them Japanese imports. I'm probably dating myself here.
Love the X Japan on your list. I downloaded their discography a couple years back from a torrent site. I've also been getting into this Korean band a lot lately too
I learned of Asian music through my addiction to Anime.
I have to say my first find was BOA, who I discovered through INUYASHA.
and in no particular order.
Yui from Angel Beats, who sings one of the saddest songs I've heard
And the Grand Lady of them all: Yoko Kanno
And the song that inspired me to learn a new language.
Music is the one thing that can make us laugh and cry even when we cannot understand the words.
Dakara, Oyasumi nasai.
I am having a massive sad, I originally posted 14 songs, but can only have 5, I had to chop 9.
A country being proud of it's millionaires is like a person being proud of their tapeworms.
We know each other from DU...so you know my answer to that question!
I've been in a pretty heavy music mood of late, specifically female-vocal metal...so lots of Bridear, G∀lmet, Moth in Lilac...and the rest of the "usual suspects" from the heavier end of Japanese "Miss Metal." =)
I like the modern Vietnamese but this sounds like it goes back a few years.
seems like every day, I have my friend David add songs to my list.. There will be three more today, later that are added.
I have heard that before, its a fun song!!
how about some Babymetal!!
A lot of great songs come from Anime... here is one of my favorites ...
THIS song has been stuck in my head all day and I really love Chu's Day, they are my favorite band right night. I love the singer's voice and they are all proficient musicians. Love them! <3
I absolutely adore Sung Si-kyung.
He is South Korean, sings mostly ballads.
Oh yeah. It's from the 60s. Been really loving this lately.
I just bought my ticket!
