I'm thinking of introducing some friends to Vocaloid, and I'm wondering what songs to play for them. Obviously I have my favorite songs, but I'm trying to think about what songs would really be the best for an introduction to Vocaloid. So I thought I'd see what suggestions people here might have.

Now, I don't want this to be a "what is/are THE BEST Vocaloid song(s)" thread, because that's obviously going to lead nowhere. Nor do I want just a "what are your favorite Vocaloid songs" thread, because I know I can think of lots of songs that I really like and would count among my favorites but don't think are really suitable for an introduction to Vocaloid. Instead, try to come up with one or two songs that you think would be likely to pique someone's interest in Vocaloid, to show them what Vocaloid is capable of. They can be really popular and well-known songs or obscure songs; they can be by well-known producers or complete unknowns; they can feature any Vocaloid too, and I'd actually like to show my friends a variety of Vocaloids (and if a song you want to suggest actually features an Utau, then go ahead and include it). I'd also like it if we could have selections for both Japanese and English. (I'm actually having the most difficultly thinking of the best English Vocaloid songs to introduce, because that is the language that I and my friends speak.) Another thing to think about is the style or genre of the music, not just about the sound of the Vocaloid.

Hopefully I can get a few responses with some suggestions. Thanks in advance!

How's this one for an English song, then?


Well, I think something important for picking the best song to show your friends may depend on their interests/favorite genres if you know them, though if you are showing them all at once that may be more difficult.
If you know a general favorite genre, though, I think that may be a good lead!

Thanks Move->Forward and SilverChihiro! These friends of mine are people who know a lot about music and have a pretty wide-ranging experience of music, and are open-minded, especially when it comes to listening to music in genres they don't necessarily like. So I'd say in my case genre isn't a concern in the sense that I want to pick only music in genres my friends actually like, but rather I want to pick songs that will show them something of the diversity of genres that Vocaloid has.

Thanks Tema and mojyo314. I was already toying with the idea of showing my friends some VOCALOUD, complete with screaming. And anything by Tiara is a fantastic example of just how far someone can go with realistic tuning of a vocaloid.

@ SilverChihiro I don't know why, but Cynic seems like a really good song to introduce people to VOCALOID/UTAU imo.

I think this one is good for introducing Vocaloid. It's live, it's recognizably a rock song, and Luka seems pretty normal performing it. Although someone who knows how to play guitar will know that her air-guitar skills suck.

Any Mitchie M song. Mitchie M's most notable characteristic in his music is the realistic way he tunes vocaloid. This is especially apparent in Viva Happy, I feel.

I put it on here for the same reason, actually. Maybe because of how similar it sounds to some American pop music?

When showing Japanese songs to people who are unfamiliar with vocaloid, I usually show one of Cillia's covers since they're tuned pretty realistically and I find that most people I show can't even tell they're not real people. Now if they think vocaloid is a thing only for weebs that's only a Japanese thing, I would say ECHO by Crusher-P is a good song where the English is really understandable and well tuned. I would also say Unbreakable by YusukeKira would be a good one too, I've been thinking about showing this to one of my coworkers actually.

I feel like even more so than his tuning, it's his music style. I think it would sound very appealing to someone who's new to VOCALOID.
