Moviebuff here,and I'm going to present you with my first top ten list.Now I thought I would start with a fun one,The Top Ten Kamen Rider Openings (My opinion of course).If you don't know what a Kamen Rider is heres a small explanation.Kamen Rider is a tokusatsu series that has been around for 40 years.It is about a Motor-Cycling Super Hero who fights various villains,Every Year theres a new series that focuses around a New Rider.So since its basically a different show every year that means a new theme song every year.Most are really good and some are just kinda boring (I'm talking to you V3 and ZX).So with that being said lets get to the list.
Number 10-Kamen Rider Agito (2002)-While I haven't seen that much of Agito,I really like the theme,Its is slow and sad but with a rock feel still imprinted in it.It is slow until it eventually gets more of a faster beat,and it has very catch lyrics.
9.5 and 9.5-Kamen Rider Ryuki-"Alive A Life" (2003) and Dragon Knight
(2009)-Yes I know I'm kinda cheating here but to be honest I love both
of these themes equally but for different reasons.I like Dragon Knight
because of its rocking guitar and few but catchy lyrics.With Ryuki its
Rica Matsumoto beautiful voice with a fast paced Techno Rock Song,its
fast and memorable beats will keep the song in your mind for a long
Ryuki "Alive A Life"
Kamen Rider Dragon Knight Theme
8 -Kamen Rider Black(1988)-Before Black pretty much all of the Kamen
Rider Themes had the 70's type feel (despite the fact that half of the
Showa Series was in the 80's) but had subtle differences when it came to
Kamen Rider Black it basically says Welcome to the 80's with loud
blaring techno beats,and to add even more awesomeness to the theme Kamen
Rider Black himself Tetsuo Kurata sings it,How cool is that.
Number 7-Kamen Rider Den-O "Climax Jump"(2008)-(laughs) Aw Den-O,The laughs you have given me....But anyways The Den-O theme makes you want to singing along with your pretend mic.Its is song by a band called AAA(its consists of 5 guys and 3 girls)and they bring energy into this song.It gets you pumped and you almost can never get it out of your head its to damn catchy.i-jan!!!i-jan!!!suge-jan!!! I-jan!!! I-jan!!! Suge-jan!!
Number 6-Kamen Rider Kuuga(2001)-After being off the Air for nearly 11 years (well there were Movies and Tv Specials) Kamen Rider Official came back on to our tv screens (Japan not ours),and Well what kind of theme does Toei have for use after this long wait.A hard Rock song(with some techno beats) and lyrics that tell you exactly what to expect from this new toku badass.Its starts out slowly and quickly builds up and grabs your attention.
Number 5-Kamen Rider Black RX(1989)-Black Rx is the only sequel series in all of Kamen Rider,So of course they would have to make the show bigger and better to top Kamen Rider Black,And while they certainty did top Black (in almost everyway)it of coursed did in terms of theme song.Just think of how cool the Black theme was but with a orchestra and the voice of Takayuki Miyauchi.This was the last Showa era Kamen Rider and it certainly went out with a bang.
Number 4-Kamen Rider Kabuto"Next Level"(2007)-AW HELL YEA.Awesome is to plain of a word to describe this series.But I'm here to talk about the theme.Its has very fast techno beats that get your heart pumping.And I just love YU-KI's voice.Out of all the themes this theme just gets my heart pumping the fastest.Its so Fast that I would have to clock up right after hearing it (Well that was a Stupid Kabuto Joke)
Number 3-Kamen Rider Kiva"Break the Chain" (2008)-Why does Classical Music(In this case a Violin) mixed with Rock Music always sound so cool,I have no idea but I won't complain.Kamen Rider Kiva probably has one of the best soundtracks out of all the series (thanks TETRA-FANG)but this theme song just kicks ass.At first it gives the show a dark horror feel then in about 5 seconds your rocking out to guitar and violin.
Number 2-Kamen Rider Double (or W Whatever)"WBX W Boiled Extreme"(2010)-First it starts out with some film noir type Sax,Then the tempo picks up,Then you hear one of the most beautiful voices ever "Aya Kamiki".It is catchy and quiet addicting to listen to.Aya's voice is so beautiful and to here it with Rock and Jazz Music and TAKUYA'S background singing,This song is an instant Classic.
Well with 9(or ten I guess) out of the way its time to give out some honorable mentions.Now 4 themes that I really like that didn't make are JustFaiz's (Kamen Rider Faiz),Setup X(Kamen Rider X),Elements (Blade's Second Theme) and Finally The Current Kamen Rider Theme Anything Goes (Kamen Rider OOO) which would have been on this list but OOO is still on so maybe after its over.Now here it is my Number 1 favorite Kamen Rider Theme Song.
1-Kamen Rider Decade-Journey Though the Decade (2009)-Well Duh,I think
almost every Kamen Rider Fan would pick this,What can I really say It's
Gackt singing a song for Kamen Rider (Hey did two more really good ones
for the movies)While its not as Rock orientated as most of these themes
it Truly is the best (and It was one of the best Rider shows,And I don't
care what you say) Kamen Rider theme.
Well that was my first top ten list.Please comment on the list,Tell me if you agree or disagree with list and tell me why,or tell YOUR favorite Kamen Rider Themes.I don't have a signing off pharse yet so,ummmmm.....Bye
