I have been listening to Japanese music since middle school.  There's something very special about the groups that I like.  Their upbeat music, even happy songs, seem to have an undercurrent of melancholy.  That element has fascinated me and moved me to tears.  I don't believe I can say that about an American group.  It's either melancholy or happy; never both.  This particular band, Stereopony, are also special to me for a very important reason: they are all girls.  They play instruments with sophistication, instead of merely strumming two chords and looking pretty.  Check out the above video for "Hitohia No Hanabira" and rewind the solo, play it twice.
