Put a Tune To it: Western Songs for Anime: The Last Round

Hey guys. A few months ago I decided to toss my hat into the ring of starting one of those infamous tagging themes. The result was Put a Tune to it which to my surprise took off far better than I expected.

First off, I want to thank everyone who took part, and I hope you all had fun. I’ve been thinking about what is going to follow up, and while I have my idea. I wanted to take one more shot at this theme before we move on. I’ve got a handful of other songs that I think fit anime or anime characters, so let’s get into it after the cut.

In case you forgot the rules.

  • Choose any number of western songs (any genre) that you think best sums up an anime or manga of any type or genre.
    • If you want to pick more than 1 from each section that’s fine. Or if you can’t think of one for a specific category that’s fine also.
  • Explain why you think your choices could work. Is it the lyrics? The tune and the beat? Or just the music video?
  • Link back to the original post so I can read people’s suggestions, I’d love to read everyone’s ideas.
  • Include Put a Tune to It in your tags so everyone including myself can find them all easily.Image result for anime singer

  1. That was a fun tag.

    I do think it’s funny that you chose a song where the video was famously illustrated by Leiji Matsumoto as one of your picks. It’s nice to see it come full circle.
