Top Ten Non-Japanese Songs that Should Be Theme Songs of Anime Series

Japanese music has a very distinctive sound but sometimes certain songs by artists from other countries have a resemblance. You don't know what but something reminds you of the opening or closing themes of anime series (the original ones, not the altered dub for Western audiences).

The Top Ten

1 Engel der Nacht - Blümchen

Would fit for a magical girl anime. - Martin_Canine

2 Fallen World - Dragonforce

Would fit for an epic fantasy or adventure anime. - Martin_Canine

3 Written in Blood - Beyond the Black

Would fit for an epic dark fantasy anime. - Martin_Canine

4 Reise durch die Zeit - Blümchen

Would fit for a magical girl anime. - Martin_Canine

5 Play Dead - Björk

This song sounds so much like Megumi Hayashibara but with English lyrics and a different sounding voice... the strings in the background, the beat, the tempo, the melody, everything reminds me of her slower music. - Martin_Canine

Would fit for a closing song of just about any anime. - Martin_Canine

6 Fight - Natalia Barbu

Would fit for a dark fantasy anime or a horror anime. - Martin_Canine

7 Hellracer - Vanilla Ninja

Okay, the lyrics kind of make this very specific, but the music alone would fit for an action anime. - Martin_Canine

8 Frei Wie Der Wind - Nena

This song would fit for about any anime that is more dramatic and epic in tone, and not so much comic.
The lyrics are about a revolutionary, but it could be as well be interpreted as being about a fighter as well, maybe a chosen one who wants to free mankind of some kind of evil powers or something like that. - Martin_Canine

9 Eisenwind - StrawbellyCake

This will definitely be perfect for my favourite anime Cory In The House! - TwilightKitsune

Would fit for a romantic anime or a magical girl anime. - Martin_Canine

10 The Throne - Blind Guardian

Perfect for a very epic dark fantasy anime. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Dead to the World - Nightwish

Would fit for a dark fantasy anime. - Martin_Canine

12 Ride Into Obsession - Blind Guardian

For epic dark fantasy or adventure anime. - Metal_Treasure
