With a soundtrack composed by Yoko Kanno and several vocals sung by Megumi Nakajima and May Nakabayashi, Macross Frontier by itself is able to put all the previous entries of the Macross franchise to shame in the music department, and stands tall as one of the most iconic collections of awe-inspiring songs since it aired in 2008. It's really saying something when the first soundtrack * Nyan FRO broke into the top 3 of the Japanese charts since Neon Genesis Evangelion over a decade ago!
"Houkago Overflow" * After School overflow, the first of three songs used during the climatic final battle.
"Hoshi Kira" * "Sparkling Star", the movie's ending credits song.
May'n and Nakajima
As a duet, Sheryl and Ranka rock out even more awesome than their solos, which is no small feat.
"Infinity", sung in Episode 7's climax note "Infinity" is initially sung in the first soundtrack by May'n only, but the episode itself features a variant named "Infinity #7", which includes Nakajima.
"Nyan Nyan Service Medley", which is an epic mashup of several songs in the series note In order of appearance: Lion, Infinity, Watashi no Kare wa Pilot, Diamond Crevasse, Seikan Hikou, What 'bout my star?, Lion, Ai Oboete Imasu ka, Lion, Aimo (last one is sung by Maaya Sakamoto), is used in Episode 25's climatic fight against the true mastermind who has hijacked the Vajra, Grace.
"Get it on ~ Kōsoku Climax" * "Get in on ~ Light Speed Climax", which is used as Alto and company rescue Sheryl from her imprisonment under the guise of Ranka's concert.
"Nyan Nyan Final Attack Frontier Greatest Hits!"; this differs from "Nyan Nyan Service Medley" in that it incorporates other songs; it ditches "Infinity", "What 'bout my star?", "Diamond Crevasse", "Watashi Kare Wa Pilot" and "Seikan Hikou" for "Northern Cross", "Niji-Iro Kuma Kuma", "Universal Bunny" and "Obelisk".
