I already included more JP songs than originally intended, so NO to those.
Sonic them is way too relaxed, Gargoyles is too talked over, and Heathcliff is no.

On the heels of Awesome 80s and Awesome 90s are three extra projects

Overflow of Awesome- 80s and 90s theme that didn't make the cut the first time around, in their own album. Gimme suggestions, some might make it in.

Awesome 2k- What it says on the tin, Awesome themes from 2000-2009.

GARjin!- themes of people who exemplify the trope of GAR, but who aren't Japanese in origin. Batman, Samurai Jack, Mace Windu, folks like that. Taking suggestions.

And yes, the sonic song is too relaxed for its lyrics. I am dissapointed in the singer.

REFER TO ICON.

also, Serial Experiments Lain. It's anime, but the song isn't japanese :monster:

and of course... DUCKTALES (woohoo).

Also, Animaniacs, Inspector Gadget, and Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Doug theme was really catchy too.

Looney, please note what's in the EXISTING albums before suggesting themes for the new ones.
However, non redundant ones noted.

Ahh sorry, I thought some 80s cartoons were 90s ones thus did not think to check for them :P *was not alive for the 80s*

I would also suggest the Clone High theme, even though it's '02. Also, if you're considering non-cartoon themes then there is probably a lot missing.

Clone High can go into the Awesome 2000 album.

BTW, What I'm really looking for is suggestions for GARjin and Awesome 2000, since I've given those ideas less thought. Overflow suggestions are welcome, I just want more for the other two.

Keep in mind- I'm going to be limiting myself to ~20 songs per album, give or take a few depending on length.

With a song like 'fastest thing alive' about SONIC, no singer should be taking as long a pause between lyrics as that.
A theme like Sonic Heroes is what I expect. Stupidly frenetic, that constantly pumps the energy, giving you no time to think.

Sonic!...
...
...
He can really move!
...
...
Sonic!...
...
...
He's got an attitude!

Doesn't cut it for awesomeness when the defining aspect of the subject matter and the name of the song are blinding speed.

That song is very fitting for the tone of SatAM. That show actually had a good plot, not just Sonic running around all the time like he was on crack. It also aired in the early 90's, you are forgetting what kind of cultural influences it had at the time. You are missing out on your list of awesome if you don't include it.

I am dissapoint, Ryu. :sadpanda:

VERY DISSAPOINT!!!!

Have to agree. Reminds me of the first time I saw Sonic X. Thought the theme was AMAZING. XP



Also recommendations for Awesome 2000.

I know you already had a TMNT one, but I love this theme.

Fine.

If you are all going to be poops then you'd better add this one to the list:



It's the only way I'll forgive you. </3

I've never been able to decide whether I like Just Communication or Rhythm Emotion better. I like the video that goes with Just Communication better...but I go back and forth on the actual songs.

As for Sonic SatAM, I love the show but I never liked that song. I never thought about it being slow or relaxed or whatever its just so...cheesy. I know a lot of these shows have cheesy openings, but I noticed Sonic's when I was a kid.
