Musicians out there all know that there are songs of each genre which are "must know" in order to sit in and jam. These are standards, music that everyone knows and loves. What do you think should be in an anime songbook of standards?

I will throw these classics in the mix, because I don't want to run the risk of them not showing up on the first page:

Pokemon Theme
Logos Naki World
Hohoemi no Bakudan
Rock the Dragon
Lupin III Theme '78 <--I'm almost certain that this is a standard in Japan.
Detective Conan Theme

Yoko Kanno= <3 :3

I think Zankoku na Tenshi no These aka Cruel Angel's Thesis from Neon Genesis Evangelion. A classic and an awesome song. And I also think Lilium from Elfen Lied. It's such a beautiful song I feel all anime fans should know.

Funny story about that. I went karaoking with friends one time and the system needed to reboot. So while we were waiting for it, we started singing Cruel Angel's Thesis acapella. Best. Night. EVER!

THAT SOUNDS EPIC.

That song is so awesome too. Amazing to work out to as well! I picture Asuka gettin' all angry and I'm like YEAH IMMA ANGRY TOO! I sang it in my car once and I got weird stares from people across from me at a stop light. I get that a lot actually.....XD

Yay! I'm not the only one here that believes things by Yoko Kanno/Origa should be remembered. :3 I also think that Rise from Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. 2nd GIG should be remembered to. That is such an amazing song--it should always be remembered.

Origa's got some great music. Her voice is really, really soothing to the ears. Rise is another of my favorites from Ghost in the Shell: SAC. Speaking of the show, I think I'll have to get myself some boxsets of it next year. It's always been a pleasure to see how each episode draws out.

Get it. I'm not biased for the show or anything (hahah totally am XD) but it its AAAAAH-MAZING. XD. I actually managed to get my hands on some of Origa's other stuff (through a friend who likes Russian music) and oh GAAAWD her voice is gorgeous. I just want to marry her voice. :3 Her song "Player" and ""Date of Rebirth" which is in GITS: SAC Solid State Society (sequel to 2nd GIG) are also a AWESOME songs. Player is one of two songs (the other is Making of a Cyborg by Kenji Kawai from the first Ghost in the Shell film) I will crank the bass and treble to in the car--it's so awesome with bass cranked. XD It's so awesome and great to work out to! My favorite song from Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex changes everyday. One day I prefer Inner Universe, then Player, then Rise, then Date of Rebirth....such good stuff. And even just the soundtracks to GITS: SAC are great too. Just good music overall. I also love Kenji Kawai's music in the original movies (GITS and GITS 2: Innocence). I have never bought a soundtrack to something before Ghost in the Shell and I heard all of it and I was like "I need to own this music." God, sooooo GOOOOOOOD. :3 <3

Yeah that's another one!!! Making of a Cyborg from Ghost in the Shell. :3
