If we're talking songs with lyrics:

Vanilla - Gackt

It always makes me wanna dance. XD Gackt is awesome. <3

I also like a few random anime opening/ closing themesongs, like What's Up People? by Maximum The Hormone from Death Note, and Sakura Kiss by Chieco Kawabe from Ouran. :3

Without, it's definitely The Other Promise (Drammatica) by Yoko Shimomura. :3

Hm, a few favorite Japanese songs of mine:

Passion- Utada Hikaru
Valenti- BoA
Mahaloha- Yuna Ito

Also anything by Sarina. She's not a singer, but a violinist and is very good. Violin music+pop music= win for me. :P

If talking about anime openings, I like Hero's Comeback by +nobodyknows also and Lucky Star's opening Motteke! Se-ra-fuku.

You're linking Nicovideo here? XD Wouldn't it be more user-friendly to put up the youtube instead? XD

Anyways, as far as the mashups go though, my current on is Nanairo no Nico Nico Douga, which is the latest of Shimo's mashup songs.

Actual songs, I've been liking Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari from Bakamonogatari lately, which would be Supercell's debut single (i'm also a sucker for Nicovideo artists)

Ready Steady Go - L'arc-En-Ciel

I find it funny how the name of the band is rainbow in French.

I don't listen to any Japanese songs, but I sometimes watch animes that have Japanese songs in them. I like the one that plays at the end of Wolf's Rain. I think it's called "Gravity".

It would be, and I looked for a YT video of that particular version (no vocals, base audio). I couldn't find one, though I did find some interesting versions on YT.

Dakishimetai - Jungle Smile (Ending to Super Gals! Kotobuki Ran)
Anything by Akiko Shikata. She is absoluely amazing, especially her work on Uminako No Naku Koro Ni, and the Ar Tonelico games. Ar Tonelico was where I first heard her voice.
I also like anything by GACKT and Susumu Hirasawa
