Wolf Rain's ending song (which rocked!!) was english!

Wilcon 2004-03-19 12:28

Almost all intial D songs :)

For example: Initial D - Twin Turbo(love it)

.hack//SIGN's opening theme...ED of Peacemaker Kurogane...i could probably think of more

What about the fusions between japanese and english?

There are lots and lots songs out there that have some english words/sentences/parts in it. Dunno, like Slayers or Detective Conan for example. ^-^ even if it is sometimes difficult to find out what they're singing...

hehe, .hack//SIGN is special. There is not only an english opening, they've got other languages too. I was really surprised to hear "Das Wandern" which is in german (so I had some fun figuring it out :D )

oh yeah there are a million of these. I noticed that in almost every japenese theme song there is a little bit of english in it. For example, the Gundam Wing op... "communication" i think it was? And also cowboy bebop's "the real folk blues"

Getting back on topic though, pretty much all the music done for the cowboy bebop movie is in english. Most of the songs for the .hack//sign series are also in english....although it is very difficult to understand what they are saying. Also the pillows, (the band that does all the music for FLCL) have done a few songs in english you might be able to find on the soundtrack for FLCL

Every .hack//SIGN song is in english, except for Das Wandern(German), which was said, and Yasashii Yoake(the ending theme, in Japanese). If you go to animelyrics.com and just follow along with it once or twice, the songs seem to become a lot easier to understand.

Also, Dimension of Love from Tenchi Universe is english, or at least in the dub it is.

Does Fly Me To The Moon count? Or perhaps Komm, Susser Tod. (Both are from Evangelion, although the first is debatable.)

A large number of the Cowboy Bebop songs are in English as well (not just for the movie).

Bandersnatch 2004-03-19 19:24

Hellsing - Logos Naki World - Heard that this song is actually english, I can barely make out what they are saying, only recognizing certain words. You know something is wrong when the longest phrase you can understand is "shoobie doobie doo." Please correct me if im wrong and this is actually Japanese lol.

Hellsing - Shine - Hey! I can actually understand this one compared to Logos Naki World.

Naruto - Wind

Berserk - Tell Me Why - Not the best english: "So put your grasses on, nothin will be wong, theres no brame, theres no fame, its up to you." Thats what it sounds like, still one of my favs though :p

Berserk - Waiting So Long

Longinus 2004-03-21 03:22

Info High from macross Plus?

Newprimus 2004-03-21 06:02

The ending theme to Hellsing is also English (pretty good too, language-wise)

The PMK themes are more of a fusion, although both of them have a lot of english in them.

You mean Just Communication :)

ShinDragon 2004-03-23 06:06

Kousetsu Hyaku Monogatari's OP & ED are both in English.

Wolfsbane68 2004-03-23 08:03

GIST SAC 1 first OP was a rare mixture of Russian, English and a bit of Latin. And no Japanese in sight :)

hm I heard "Fly me to the Moon" not only in NGE but also in Karaoke Videos earlier.
And, yeah Komm susser Tod is an English Song, but the title is in German. Although it has to be süßer (or sueßer) but thats just by the way. ^^

Fly Me to the Moon is a song im not sure who its written by, but its a western song...i know as much as Frank Sinatra performed it...but my spider sense tells me he wasnt the one who wrote it

Bullsquat 2004-03-23 15:13

I think the OP & ED song for Teen Titans' done by J-Pop artists. So not only r Japanese singers singing in English occasionally, they're even crossing over nationwise.

TDKNL 2004-03-24 05:08

Gunslinger Girl, GW, PMK and .hack//SIGN liminality.

Found them all good songs, but I prefer Japanese don't know why :heh:

Your right in that he didn't write the song, he just took all the credit for it. The
original song was first written and preformed around the mid 30's. Yay for Big Band. :)

I don't think so... To the best of my knowledge Komm, Susser Tod was originally
written by Johann Sebastian Bach (it's actually a opera-ish song with a similar
tune only slower). However, as there are several versions of the song that can
be dated to various time periods before Evangelion it would be safer to assume
that Shiro Sagisu took inspiration from one of those songs.
