My Favorite Music

An introduction: I am in no way a music expert. I could probably do a lot better and gain better taste in the art. But alas, I am but a wee lad and don't really care to. So here's my current list of favorites. I am quite fond of Alternative rock. I also like a little Jrock, Jpop, Jazz and a bit of Rap. I dislike American Pop, mostly attached to Japanese pop and Europop. This list is in no particular order, split up into two sections – Video game soundtracks and regular music. I might add notes on some of them and leave others bare. As a side note, I think a lot of newer games' soundtracks are transcending “regular” music. In fact, some games even have fully orchestrated soundtracks, and they're damn good. Let us begin.

Every day music:
-Red Hot Chili Peppers – I love RHCP. My favorite song would be “Can't stop.” Reminds me of California.
-Metronomy – Ahh, some of their songs are way up there on my list. Very nice Europop. I especially like “Heartbreaker,” “The Bay” and “Radio Ladio.”
-Scatman John – Extremely soulful, with an earnest message. R.I.P. John Larkin.
-Mindless Self Indulgence – Gotta love those vulgur vocals about dames and drugs. But I still like it.
-RIP Slyme (Japanese) I don't understand what the hell they're saying but the rap has good flow about it.
-The Pillows (Japanese) Same goes for this one, only it's not rap, it's Rock. FLCL (Fooly Cooly/Furi Kuri) brought them to my attention. The two go so well together.
-Anamanaguchi – Any gamer has to appreciate the 8bit chiptune music that is Anamanaguchi. Using a hacked NES is just that much cooler.
-Gorillaz – What can I say? I love them.
-Franz Ferdinand
-Daft Punk

Original Soundtracks:
A few of these games I've never played before, but I can still love the music.
-Jet Set Radio/Jet Grind Radio/Jet Set Radio Future - A slew of artists and musical styles. Very funky.
-999 – The music completely set the game's tone in stone.
-Trauma Team
-Gyakuten Saiben Orchestra/Phoenix Wright – A very epic orchestrated soundtrack, and I rarely use the word “epic.”
-Catherine – This game has remixes classical music. Splendorous.
-Persona 3 & 4
-Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey – a vast soundtrack.
-Okami – I like this because the music gives you that “mythical” feeling to the game.
-Banjo Kazooie – Pure nostalgia.
-The World Ends With You - It's hip, it's got rhythm, it's got style.
