For whatever reason, this song popped into my head today. "merodiii, something something sommeething." At first I was like... where was this song from? I couldn't remember, but after going down the list of anime I watched on myanimelist.com I remembered it was the ending from Tokyo Magnitude 8! It's about a young brother and sister, who are caught in an earthquake and have to make their way back home. Great, emotional story, I'd recommend it to just about anyone. I watched it about 2 years ago now (I think).

Enjoy :) This song is great on a sunny spring/summer day.

So I'm watching some episodes of Amagami SS+ right now, and I'm beginning to realize how soothing some of its OST is.. Very light music overall, good elevator music, and I don't mean that in a bad way. One of the better light romantic comedy series in recent years.

@videodragon: Props for mentioning Macross 7. I really love the Macross franchise and the inclusion of the fictional band, Fire Bomber really took the concepts of music in space combat from the original series to the next level. I will admit that over the course of the show however, I heard "Planet Dance" way too much. I went through a series of disliking it, having it grow on me, hating it, and finally appreciating it for kitch value. On the other hand, I really love "Sweet Fantasy" which was Mylene Jenius's theme song. I still need to sit down and watch Macross Frontier though. I keep putting it off because it means an end to the franchise unless they make something new.

Having said this, Minmay's songs from Do You Remember Love and Flashback 2012 still rank tops in my book from the franchise. Hell, "Ai Oboeteimasu ka? (Do You Remember Love?)" is still among my favorite songs from an anime. "Tenshi No Enogu" from 2012 really wowed me when I originally saw it, too.

Musically, I found Macross Plus (1994) to be the weakest of the releases even though it had a virtual idol singing electronics-inspired pop in a multitude of different languages throughout such as "Information Highway" and "Idol Talk". "Voices" from the opening did have an ethereal quality that would have been at home in Macross Zero from 2002. There weren't too many vocal songs in the OVA series which is understandable due to the setting of the story, however "Yanyan", the 3rd OVA ending was notably eclectic. The score for this series is pretty good though which is why I rank it about Plus. Macross II Lovers Again (1992) isn't canon to the franchise, but I felt it's music much better linked back to the original series than Plus. Ishtar's songs could have been Minmay's which was comforting to me. "For Now, A Friend" and "A Promise" are good examples.

Crunchyroll posted a nice article giving a list of great anime openings, pre-2000. I think it's relevant to this thread. xD

Funny story about the Sailormoon opening. When I was a child (pre-5 years old) I loved Sailormoon. And apparently during one of my pre-school's talent shows or something, I actually got up and sang the Sailormoon theme (in English though) for the show. My mom keeps telling me about it, but I don't remember ever doing that. =\
