The Macross Series is famous for having music as an important factor even though its a mecha series. You're probably more interested in the latest, which is Macross Frontier, great music from Yoko Kanno in this one.

And for truly beautiful piano pieces, try the movie, Piano no Mori, or Piano Forest in english. Its very rare, just to inform you. Its also a winner of some film festival this year.

Nodame Cantabile is the only other anime I can think of where music plays a significant role in the plot. It revolves around classical music students.

I've seen FLCL before and it has an amazing soundtrack,but not what i'm looking for,so it's understandable it's a kind of.Detroit Metal City is amazingly awesome and Nodame Cantabile looks interesting.

So could someone tell me why music is an important factor in the macross series.If it's spoiler content you don't have to tell

You identify Macross by 3 things:

Transformable fighters, mechs and pilots.
Music, song and singers.
Love triangle.

The pilot(s) will always have a love triangle with the singer(s). The pilot is essential for protecting the human race and destroying the enemy. The singer is essential for saving the world/galaxy and maybe even the 'enemy'.

To fully understand the importance of music in Macross, though, you would have to watch the original Macross. Which there is a simple alternative, which is Macross: Do You Remember Love?, the movie retelling of the original story which is pretty much canon. Its old school but is classically beautiful, with a final song that everyone remembers till this day.

Simplistic Answer: Macross is well known for having Idol singers influencing the courses and opinions of both enemies and allies during war time (if you do not know Macross, think of it as being somewhat similar to Lacus Clyne from the Gundam Seed universe, and her various songs that she sang to soothe the troops and the nation). The singing is never really the focal point of the series (well, except for Macross 7), but it is a strong secondary aspect of the series that greatly influences the characters, especially the romances in the series.

The original Macross series is classic in every sense of the word. So many conventions and clichés were created from this series, and so many previous clichés were broken as well (the fact that the main character is not the best pilot is simply shocking even by today's standards). Truly a classic anime.

edit: C.A. beat me to the punch; with a far better answer as well .

Nodame Cantabile and Honey & Clover have some of the best music imo.

Nitaboh is the story of a traditional musician, and how he found a certain instrument.
La Corda d'Oro plays in a school, where one part is a music school. The lead becomes a musician in a slightly special way

Music being important for part of the story is in Saiunkoku Monogatari, first season, and in Samurai Champloo. Both excellent watches in their own right.

And seconding Black Heaven, it is good stuff.

Nerima Daikon Brothers, its a really funny anime bout a band trying to build their own stadium. Not to mention that most of the episodes are musicals.
