I'm a dedicated listener of J-Rock and J-Pop and just wanted to know what songs does everyone else like. Any song old or new, from an anime show you love, etc.

I've recently been watching Code Geass and love the song O2 by Orange Range

Wow. Favorite J-music song. Now that's a ridiculous question. ^^
So hard to just put it down into a couple of songs, but I'll do my best. Here's a random list with J-music I really like. I'll add artist with one of my fave songs and the genre.

First off: Fav. J-artists + song (+ genres):
- Kitade Nana - HOLD HEART (J-pop / J-rock)
- -MOON-Kana - Chocolat (J-pop / J-rock)
- Sakamoto Maaya - Kiseki no Umi (J-pop)
- Mono - Lost Snow (post-rock)
- Envy - A Will Remains in the Ashes (post-hardcore)
- Nakajima Miyuki - Jidai (J-pop)
- 夢中夢 - 楽園 (post-rock)
- Broadside - June 20th (post-hardcore)
- miaou - You Found Me (post-rock)
- Kawase Tomoko - Hey My Friend (J-pop / J-rock)

Or something like that. TOO DIFFICULT! ^^

How come people call japanese rock J-Rock but never call japanese post-rock J-Post-Rock? I mean, if you're going to stick "J-" on everything japanese, why not go all the way.

IDK. I think calling it 'J-Rock' is kinda silly anyways. I don't go around saying, "Don't you love Kyo? They're F-rock, don't you know?" But whatever.

I have so many faves, it's impossible just to pick a few...most of the music on my laptop is Japanese~ XD but I guess my faves would be Nana Mizuki, Sowelu and a whole ton with names I can't remember~ XDD and Rie Kugimiya, if she counts, since she only does character songs

Everything from the Utena OST's from Rinbu revolution to Zettai Unmei Mokushiroku, pretty much anything involving Yoko Kanno and Yuki Kajiura and most of Maaya Sakamoto's songs.
Mutyumu is incredible as well.
And I can't forget Noto Mamiko either, her version of Aizome and Karinui are beautiful.

But not all of these are Jpop obviously.

Specific songs might be...
-Masami Okui - Rinbu Revolution, Toki ni Ai Wa
-Shinkichi Mitsumune - Shoujo Kakumei - overture, Gakuen no Scarlet, Beruzeburu no Oujou
-J.A Seazer - Zettai Unmei Mokushiroku
-Yoko Kanno - Blue, Tank!, Space Lion, See you Space Cowboy, Human Step, Big boys, Take Off, Requiem, Shiro,Long Tail's,
-Yuki Kajiura - M12-13, The World, Ensei, Mezame, Otome no Komoriuta, Materialise
-Maaya Sakamoto - Tell Me What The Rain Knows, Cloud 9, 30 Minutes Night Flight, Yukka, Loneliness, Dive, Sora Wo Miro, Scrap~Wakare no Shi, Kingfisher Girl, Yoru, Ame Ga Furu,
-Noto Mamiko - Aizome, Karinui
-Mutyumu - 火焔鳥, 僕たちの距離感, 祈り, 灰の日
-Yoko Takahashi - Cruel Angel's Thesis

That would be Yasushi Ishii. Matsuou only did the Ultimate OST.

Anime related stuff...love the music from FLCL(The Pillows make amazing music), Air Gear, Slayers...character songs from Hidamari Sketch and Ichigo Mashimaro are cute. And I absolutely love anything Yuki Kajiura does, beautiful work.

Outside of anime, I like Capsule, Ellegarden, Shakalabbits, Yellow Monkey, Plus-Tech Squeeze Box and most ska music like Yum Yum Orange, Midnight Pumpkin, Skull Candy etc.

Of course, I hate limiting my music tastes to just Japanese music(as my collection has US music, Swedish, Korean, Russian and others). :)

Without exhausting a list, some of my top favourites are Lia's Toki o Kizamu no Uta (OP for Clannad ~After Story~) and anNina's Taisho A (ED for Higurashi Kai), which is also my favourite blues song. I'm also liking Mizuki Nana's Shinai (OP for White Album).
