I love this challenge! Thanks so much @MattK95 it really brought me on a trip down memory lane, revisiting the Asian music I obsessed over in high school (minus the K-Pop of course). I'd forgotten what a profound effect it had on my life!

Zwei- Hikari

This was such a beautiful hopeful song for my little teen self to listen to.

Ping Pung- On Your Mark

And then something a little grungier... for all my high school angst haha.

Tank! -Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop)

I remember discovering this show and feeling like the world was a better place. And then I saw the series finale. T_T

Lost My Music- Aya Hirano

For the time in my life when I really wanted to play guitar.

Ayu's Euro Mega Mix- Ayumi Hamasaki

This always sounded so epic to me. Like, if I ever transformed into a magical anime girl, this is what that day would sound like.

Miyavi- Selfish Love

I don't feel like this song encapsulates any one moment of my life (I hope not!) but I felt like I had to include it because it's so much fun to listen to.

Legend of Ashitaka (Princess Mononoke)

Obligatory Miyazaki moment- gotta pay tribute to one of my favorite films of all time. This overture is stunning.

Run Devil Run- Nylon Pink

Kick-butt girl anthems are my jam, and this is one of my faves.

The Pillows- Bran New Love Song (Runners' High)

I love how spacey and quirky this song sounds.

Butterfly- DDR

I kind of resent my younger self for listening to this song so much, but at least I'm probably not the only one?
I love this list, and the addition of the songs from Cowboy Bebop, and Princess Mononoke only serve to make it even better ^^ great job @shannonl5
LOL Some of my coworkers at the cafe I used to work at would always play that Butterfly song in the back room. It's fun, but oh boy, can it get annoying...
Thanks @christy he's one of my favorite musicians!
miyavi oooh the best man ever. I like ur list alot
@shannonl5 I wanna go there so bad!! He is so creative and everything he does is unique!
