7. Cowboy Bebop: The Movie – “Ask DNA” by The Seatbelts

Cowbow Bebop is a cult-classic in the anime community but not just for the show – for its incredible soundtrack as well. The band The Seatbelts was created solely to make music for the Cowboy Bebop franchise, and they excelled to unparalleled heights in doing that.

“Ask DNA” is just a sample of all the amazing music The Seatbelts have put out for the show. If you haven’t heard their music, prepare yourselves!

6. Jujutsu Kaisen (ending credits theme) – “Lost in Paradise” by ALI, AKLO

Folks, here we have what can only be described as the best end credits song to any anime, ever.

“Lost in Paradise” caught my attention literally the first time I heard it after the Jujutsu Kaisen episode ended. I even prevented HBO Max (now just Max) from skipping to the next episode. It’s got soul. It truly does. This song has been played in my Spotify more times than I care to admit, and it’s a huge favorite with my children as well.

The extended version of “Lost in Paradise” can be found here, and I highly recommend listening to it.
