    Help! I want to buy some Japanese songs but I only know the names of the artists. I can hum the tunes but I don't have the titles. Is there a website out there where I can listen to short clips of Japanese songs and purchase them?

    (Same question for Chinese songs too but I really want to purchase a quality version of those songs, not download some pirated ones. :) )

    Thanks in advance!

    Youube has a variety of music videos, may it be Jpop or Kpop, but I admit I never looked for Chinese song so far. :)

    Thanks! I did find the titles of some Anzenchitai songs with thehelp of YouTube. Turning them into mp3 was such a hassle however, and there're so many songs from them that I love! I eventually opted to buy their CD.

    I did downloadd other J-pop and Cantopops from YouTube though.

    This is my absolute fav:

    Futari de Iru tame ni
    Hitori kiri
    Konna ni Sobani Iruto iu no ni
    Kanashiku Saserunara
    Mitsumenai
    Anata no Sono
    Kirei na Mabataki ni Goodbye

    Perhaps we should have a thread where we recommend non-English songs (and movies) for fans here to enjoy. Do you think people willbe interested?
