Lyrical/cantabile music recommendation


I'd appreciate if you could give me some recommendations of lyrical/cantabile J-pop songs, whether they're from anime or not.

What I mean in general is... songs that have pretty melodies, not that loud of a volume, and not that heavy of a beat (i.e. little or no percussion at all). Examples of this type are...
  • "Eternal Snow" from Full Moon wo Sagashite (Full Moon's version)
  • "Yakusoku" from Love Hina
  • "Florescence" from Kanon (anime)
  • "Hikari no naka e" sung by Sakamoto Maaya

I suppose you know what I mean by now? ^.^

So please drop some recommendations into my hat, please?

Try Hikari no Rasenritsu, by Kuikui. Rozen Maiden: Traumend ending, and it's one of the best songs I've ever heard.

I have heard "Yakusoku" (One of my old-time favorites) and I think it sounds a bit like Hikari.

Sometimes I look back and think to myself, "how the hell did I manage to screw this up?"

It's hard to think a song with no percussion but i get what you mean, you want something that is not loud.
Try Maaya Sakamoto's song like Loop, midori no Hane, Pocket o kara ni shite ...etc.
Rie Fu- i wanna go to a place, life is like a boat, Rose
Ayumi Hamazaki's - Dearest ( Inuyasha's ending song)
BoA- every heart
Fiction Junction Yuuka- Honoo no Tobira, Nostalgia, Akatsuki no kuruma
Zard- Natsu o Matsu Sail no yo ni

Nostalgia-Changin My Life. Yes, it is from Full Moon but was never played in the anime series. I bet you've never heard it unless you're a hadcore CML fan.

Michiyuki-Hikita Kaori from Loveless. This is the definition of the song you want. Very slow but emotional. You might even shed a tear-it has a very sorrowful feel-the lyrics are sad too. Add a point if you love piano. Very pretty song.

Morning Grace-Okazaki Ritsuko. From Princess Tutu, it's an enchanting little tune.

Anata Ga Ita Mori-Jukai from Fate/Stay Night.

And last but not least!

Aka No Seijaku-Ishida Youko from Shakugan No Shana. This song is one of my faves right now Youko's voice is really beautiful, ah this is just a beautiful song in general. She gets stronger on the refrain but the song is still slow and relaxing. I love the lyrics.

Thank you, everyone!! *bow*

I listened to most of your recommendations, and liked quite a few of them!

To Zero Shinohara: Hikari no Rasenritsu is a lovely song, but it sounds nothing like the "Yakusoku" I mentioned. I looked up "Yakusoku" as a song name and there are around 10-15 anime songs with that name, so you might have been thinking of another one! Oh, and after seeing your post, I looked up "Rozen Maiden" (I didn't know of this series before) and downloaded both seasons. I like it!

To xxanimefan4_ever: The Fruits Basket opening song is very pretty! I prefer the Yui Horie (Tohru) version over the original though because I can hardly hear Okazaki Ritsuko's voice in the latter. I must say the same of all Okazaki's songs: they're wonderful, but I can't hear the melody! How sad, though, she died of septic shock... rest in peace. (The name "Okazaki" and her cause of death remind me of my Biochem/Med studies, heh. Okazaki fragments, anyone? Remember DNA transcription?)

To Chiibi: And thank you once again!! This is the nth time you've helped me, I think. Michiyuki is a tad too sad :-<
