Songs From Pikachu's JukeboxPikachu's Jukebox was a soundtrack album that featured a variety of English Pokémon tracks, both from the anime and influenced by it. 4Kids Entertainment and KOCH Records released it on CD and audio cassette on June 29, 1999. There were some amazing songs in the album and this list ranks them.
This is not just my favorite song from the album, it's one of my favorite songs of all time. This song makes me feel emotional and it touches my heart as well. Every since I was 5 years old, Pokémon became my favorite anime and it brings me memories that all the good times that I watched Pokémon in my childhood and it will always be my favorite, as long as I live. Ash, Pikachu, Misty and Brock are like my childhood friends.
If there is one thing the Pokémon anime builds perfectly, it's the friendship of Ash and Pikachu. Together Forever is an emotional song that looks back on Ash and Pikachu's times together, and they remember when they first met in Oak's lab. The warm synth in the beginning of the song hits like a truck of nostalgia and the waterworks automatically start flowing. Ash and Pikachu look back on all they've been through. In the lyrics, they sing that they've been such good friends, and that they'll be together forever. That they'll always remember each other and ...more
This song has a great beat and is incredibly catchy. Apart from being catchy, the song makes Team Rocket look cooler than they were before, since they were always goofing around and fooling around. It also shows all of their times trying to sabotage things involved the "twerps" and their rivals; Cassidy and Butch.
The song also shows their funny times together, and Jessie and James even sings along to some parts. My man, James has an amazing voice and the best giggle ever. The video shows their times catching Pikachu, and for me it's funny to see all the times Pikachu was captured.
And not to mention, some of the lines of this song was out of this world.
" We're Team Rocket and we fight for what's wrong
For mayhem and madness and rare Pokémon."
" We're always gonna try it
No one can deny it
We can cause a riot in Sunday School (Ooh a riot!)
We'll have you believing
Truth can be deceiving
Do unto others is our Golden Rule."
Arguably the catchiest song in the album! It took me years to realize that this song is essentially a basic guide on how to play Pokemon.
The voice is probably one of the smoothest in the world, the video has some of the best moments from the anime, and the song itself is turned into a rap which is the true definition of 'fly'! The singing is on point and bonus points for that Drowzee dance!
"Make one wrong move and it will kick your grass!"
Jaw drops in less than 5 seconds and stays dropped till the end. Smoothest voice ever!
Although the music is cheerful and inspirational, this song is a complete tear-jerker!
Listening to it, I feel too much nostalgia, it's overwhelming and sad. Makes me shed manly tears!
It reminds me of my childhood. More importantly, it reminds me the importance of friendship. Songs today are not like this. They don't make music with passion, good lyrics, and meaning like this anymore. I miss all of the amazing friends I've had in my life. Trust me, life is not all about productivity. Life without friends is like an absolute void.
This is the 'If Michael Jackson were in Pokémon' song.
Catchy with awesome beats, this song is great! It shows all of Ash's attempts to win in battles and become a Pokémon Master like he's always dreamed of being. It's silly and goofy, and the song also depicts funny moments, such as when Charizard disobeyed him and used Flamethrower on his face. Overall, I find this song to be very enjoyable to listen to.
Oh, and how can I forget the moment when the 'Poison' type was renamed 'Flame' type?
The shipping we shipped before even knowing what shipping means- Pokeshipping 4Life!
This song is sad but also such a beautiful song! Romantic songs now-a-days are horrible but back then, there used to be meaningful songs like this. What makes it even greater is the fact that this song can be very relatable. Those who have been in the situation can understand what a melancholic vibe this song can radiate.
As I mentioned multiple times before, songs in this album are too meaningful for songs about a kids' anime. This song is an underrated gem which teaches valuable life lessons with lines like these-
" You take a chance, you roll the dice.
You risk it all, it's just a part of life.
You hold on tight to what you know.
You can't hold back, you got to let it go.
Every little step that you embrace-
One road ends, another begins and takes you to a better place!"
I'm not a fan of the fact that they made a song about one city and not the rest. That being said, there's no chance to deny that it's sung by the man himself and it's unbelievably catchy.
I think it's the only version where the Poison type survives. Awesome cover!
Who can forget the Pokerap? Nobody thought screaming the names of 151 magical creatures (Arceus and the Jewel of Life reference) could be catchy but they managed to do it! There are some lines which don't rhyme but the nostalgia factor is enough to ignore them.
This is surprisingly good. It felt very weird at first and I didn't like it. But after listening a few times, it's very easy to vibe to.
They actually made the Team Rocket trio look intimidating!
Best Team Rocket motto ever!
You haven't heard a true masterpiece if haven't heard a guy angrily scream Caterpie. Probably the most fun cover of the most fun song ever!
This songs kicks so much grass!
This song kicks so much grass!
These puns kick Grass!
This sounds like a Disney song to me. And it's my least favorite out of the bunch!
Markiplier as Giovanni, I never knew I needed that in my life.
