The Top Ten
1 Please Stay with Me - Yui

I LOVE this song! Yui is the best out there! I never get tired of scrolling through her albums and pressing repeat. My personal favorite, though, is Again. Every time I watch Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, I start crying because of the openings and the fact that it's so much better than the original. KEEP IT UP!

YUI, I'm proud to be your fan. I trust you can do the best for us :D We're proud to be YUI LOVERS. Someone asked me to hear this song... when I knew the title, I thought maybe I should listen to your song. And since the first time until now, I have never grown bored of hearing your song many times.

This is the first Japanese song I ever heard... She has a really sweet voice and she's really good at adjusting her vocal cords, which is not an easy thing to do!

2 First Love - Utada Hikaru

I like your voice so much. And this song is very good and I usually sing along when I listen to it. Although you sing English lyrics, you can express your mood well even though it is not your language...

Really touching. When I heard this song, I suddenly remembered my first love..

You were always going to be my love, Utada Hikaru...

3 Good Dayz - Rather Unique
4 Heavy Rotation - AKB48

Hey, this song can cheer you up!

5 Eternal - Jin Akanishi

I love this song, absolutely beautiful - perfection is what I would use to describe it. The vocals, the meaning, the music.. PERFECT. Take a listen. It describes many kinds of love. It's a really good song, believe me.

This is a beautiful song. His beautiful words and rhythms go well with them. I support Akanishi Jin, he sings Japanese songs again.

Eternal is really beautiful. It's one of my favorite songs in the world. I think Jin is a genius for creating it.

6 Bumpin' Freakin' - LL Brothers
7 Love So Sweet - Arashi

Upbeat! I'd never heard it until I watched Hana Yori Dango. Listening to it, I can't help but have good thoughts. Loved the drama!

This song shows warmth and love!
I really enjoy listening to "Love So Sweet"!

I love Arashi and all their songs!

8 Umareyuku Monotachi E - Do As Infinity
9 One - Ai
10 Your Best Friend - Mai Kuraki

I'm here from Detective Conan!

Really awesome indeed.

This should be the best.

The Contenders
11 Way to Heaven - Aya Ueto

Best song ever.

12 Ai No Uta - Koda Kumi

I think this was a really good song although I didn't understand some of the lines as I am still in the age of being a teenager, that is thirteen, and my name is Shalini. Please don't feel bad about this comment I gave you. But the name was really interesting. Oh, sorry for my rambling, I typed too much.

13 Nantoka Narusa - News

Although it's an old song, it is a song that gives you the energy to overcome your difficulties in everyday life!

14 Unfinished - Kotoko

Unfinished is personally not my favourite song from KOTOKO, but the song definitely ranks high on my list. Just listen to the introduction! I got hooked!

One of my favorites.

15 If - Kana Nishino

I love this song a lot.

I love this song a lot.

18 Namidairo - Yui
19 A Little Bit - W-inds
20 Laser Beam - Perfume
21 Aaa - Deai No Chikara de III
22 Be With You - Arashi

Arashi love! I love this song! I have practically memorized it! I listen to it all the time and the lyrics are ever so beautiful...

"Because of your voice, your smile, your everything,
I can open my eyes and walk.
No matter what past, no matter what tomorrow, let's share it.
That's why I'm beside you."

Aww... So beautiful!

Love, so sweet, so good.

23 Anata - L'Arc~en~Ciel

I could feel that Hyde sings this song with all his heart and the band plays well.

This song sounds good!

Makes me remember him...

24 Ikimono Gakari - Sakura

I love this song very much. This song should be number 1! Ikimono Gakari's songs are very great!

Definitely the best and the most meaningful with an awesome melody and voice!
Ikimono Gakari rules!

Can't understand why it's not the best song?

25 Shiver - The Gazette

I vote for this song.
