I remember watching a show on video that ranked the Top 100 J-POP songs of last century...and yes there was an anime song category as well.

If my memory serves me right the Top 10 Anime J-POP songs of the 20th Century were:

10. Kagayaite (Slam Dunk)
9. -gah forgot-
8. Aitakute (St.Tail)
7. Sobakasu (Rurouni Kenshin)
6. Mezase Pokemon Master! (Pocket Monster)
5. -forgot-
4. -damn forgot again!-
3. Single Bed (DNA2)
2. Sekai ga owaru madeha (Slam Dunk)
1. Odoru Ponpokorin (Chibi Maruko chan)

hehe...I'll get that video soon and tell u what the other ones were...

Unless Megumi Hayashibara was on that list (maybe one of the slots you forgot), then that list is wrong!!

Wo thats a tuffy. I always considered CAT to be most popular. I guess you would have to go by how good the music actually is. Everything by Yoko Kanno is a winner. The music from such animes like Bebop and Esca are loved by people everywhere. It also depends on your taste. Every Anime has a different style and thats what draws people to the music.

I am surprised no one said Cruel Angel's Thesis. Heck, there are about at least 40+ different versions to it, no to mention that the orginal version of the song was sung by no other the Frank Senatra. Seems like the song will live on forever.

Frank Sinatra? Are you sure you aren't mistaking that song for "Fly me to the moon"?

Yeah, Frank Sinatra was the one who originally sang "Fly Me To The Moon". I don't think he could have sung "Cruel Angel's Thesis" seeing how that's in Japanese o_O;;

I agree though, I think "Cruel Angel's Thesis" should be considered most popular, or at least one of the most recognizable anime songs out there. At Anime Expo when they played the song at the dance everyone was singing it because they knew all the words.

Ahh!!! I am such an idiot. Yeah I meant Fly Me To the Moon, sung by Frank Senatra. Cruel Angel's Thesis is very popular too.
