Phish - Prince Caspian.

Wow, this song is awesome.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

As far as depressing music goes, if I'm in that kind of mood, I'll throw on Sad World by Gary Jules.

I think you meant to say "Mad World."  ;D

It is an amazing cover. The original was too fast paced to be a depressing song.

I never understood the synth in that song since they usually do slow and sad well on other songs.
If it's not on fire, it's usually a software problem.

I'm currently listening to Ayumi Hamasaki - Guilty. That's right, J-Pop. It's goooooood stuff.

I attempted to karaoke her song Evolution at a bar in Japan once....did not go too well.  ;D Although I got a standing ovation when I did Utada Hikaru's "Be My Last." /shrug

AYU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, enough of the random spamage... carry on.

I would list what I'm listing to, but for the most part my ipod is on shuffle, so I could go from Motzart to Jpop to Greenday to Enya to all sorts of random stuff.

Ah, people who know who Ayu is :P I'm right at home.

I'm now listening to her song, Glitter. Seriously, her latest album, Guilty, is incredible.

I know exactly how you feel.  And the fact that no only do you know Ayu, but it heard meantion of Hiki.  What about BoA, Lisa, Gackt, Koda Kumi, Nami Amuro (Not sure on the spelling of her name)?

Also compleately agree with the comment about Guilty.  My favorite thought is Marrionette.  Have you heard the songs from the Mirrorile World single?  If you compair the new version of You against the old it's like "HOLY COW!!!  You have changed!"  but it's so subtle you don't notice unless you listen to them back to back.

J-Pop is really expensive to import. I have heard of Gackt, but not any of the others. What I usually do is find a song from a particular artist, and if I like it, I will go the extra mile and buy the CDs from Japan. My Ayu collection isn't even close to being finished: I only have Rainbow, Guilty, and Secret (which is coming in the mail very soon), along with a bunch of singles that I didn't technically buy -.-.

I normally try to avoid singles because they are too pricey for the amount of stuff on them, but now that I'm looking at Mirrorcle World, it looks really cool, considering Mirror was awesome.

So, right now, I'm focusing on her main albums, because that's where the goods are.

But, I do have Porno Graffitti's THUMPx and Siam Shade's III and IV. I like Ayumi Hamasaki the best, however. I've certainly been listening to Guilty almost constantly. I don't think there's a single song on there that I dislike, which is extremely rare for any album I hear. For some reason, glitter is the catchiest one on there, so I like just putting on the Repeat and listen to that one over and over.

For multiple days straight.

Yup, sounds like me.  When I go through an ayu binge I'll just keep on listeing to it.

two suggestions for getting the music.  1: itunes now has a compleate j-pop section.  2: crunchyroll.com.  It's basically a japanese focused youtube.  (Of course, you still have issues getting Ayu vids since Avex is such a freaking control freak, but there's tons of other good stuff).  One of my current favorites is Black Diamond

Actually, that's not just for Ayu. That's just what I do when I get a song I really like (I'm looking at you, "Neo Melodramatic").

But... but... I don't use iTunes for my rampant, irrational hatred of iPods :P

Ah, so that's why I can never find proper music videos of her stuff. I always thought that was strange, but now it makes sense.

So, I just got Ayumi's album, Secret. It's good stuff. I'm currently listening to "Blue Bird" from that.
