I hear all this positive stuff about it, so I'm going to dabble in the arts.

Anyone know where to start?

I wonder why they named the band Megadeth.

Wouldn't it be more superior if they named it Gigadeth?

I don't see how the hell you can play J-Pop on guitar. I thought it was like Japanese chicks doing some Britney Spears style vocals in Japanese? At least that's what I gather from Cinematech: NE and every single anime cartoon I've been unfortunate enough to watch.

Utada Hikaru

She's got an amazing voice, she does stuff in English (she was born in America), and she's hot.

That's all I can think of at the moment, though.

I've heard of her...
Did she do the Kingdom Hearts 1 main theme song?

If so, her discography will be mine!

Yep.

I have "Distance", "ULTRA BLUE", and "Deep River". All great stuff.

And the Kingdom Hearts track is called "Simple and Clean". The one most people know is the PlanetB remix, but there's a full 5 minute version.

And, IMO, Utada Hikaru has one of the best album covers known to man.



I don't know what it is. I just love it. It's so....I don't know. It's just in the top #10 covers, for me.

Definitely Utada Hikaru. I just love all of her stuff. Unlike other pop artists, she writes her own songs...

Th great thing about it is that even I can play most of her songs on electric guitar (watch her Utada United 2006 dvd. There's heaps of cool guitar leads in it)
