As much as the show itself, the theme song to an anime series can help to really hook a viewer. Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order (hopefully, I've got the titles right):

1) "Revolution": Revolutionary Girl Utena, a song as stylish as the series itself
2) "What's Up Guys?": Sorcerer Hunters, a knock-down, drag-out rocker!
3) "Ai (Chuuseishin)": Excel Saga, a fave just for the goofiness alone
4) "Sakura Saku": Love Hina, another delightfully goofy favorite
5) "For My Loved One": Fushigi Yugi, a song that hooked me like the series had

Well, there's my faves! How about listing yours! Should be fun! :)

I like most anime theme songs, they tend to grow on me if I listen to them too much XD
Ride on Shooting star: FLCL (whoops its a closing theme XD)
Catch you catch me: Card Captor Sakura
dan dan kokoro hikareteku: DragonBall GT

And what about those closing songs? They kick some *** too

The closing theme of .hack//sign is called yashii yoake (which means gentle dawn I think)

It's tough to mention all the anime themes I like, or really pick a favorite... there are so many good ones of many different styles, so it's hard to lock in on just one. Many already mentioned here are among my favorite songs...

I figure I'll chime in with the anime theme song which actually made me start looking for Japanese pop/rock music outside the world of anime theme songs:

L'arc~en~ciel - "Blurry Eyes" (OP from DNA^2 TV/OVA)

I liked that song so much I ended up purchasing a random L'arc~en~ciel CD to hear some of their other music, which led to purchasing other J-artists based on other anime themes, then based on the music charts in Japan and from other info I could find... and now, many years later, my CD collection is MUCH larger and my bank account is MUCH smaller...

:p

"Blurry Eyes" is definitely a defining song in my life...

I like a couple, some in Rourouni Kenshin, heart of sword, stray in wolf's rain, the GTO opening song, and presently I like shooting star from Onegai Teacher.

My all time favorite anime song isn't a japanese song. It would be the theme song for "Lain." After that I like the themes for Excel Saga (opening and closing are awesome and hilarious) and the themes for Witch Hunter Robin.
