It's so hard to choose!! My favorites are 2 and 4, but I absolutely love the animation in 2 (it's so refreshing after "Melissa" ^_^;;).. especially the scene with all of the military personnel ^_^, so therefore I voted for "Ready Steady Go".. although I do realize that the vocals are better in "Rewrite".. heh ^_^;;
2nd 1 was boring espically wen they used english 2 say ready steady go. i skipped it everytime i watched it
My two-cents: LOL, I love it when songs in anime use English but not appropriately and/or not making any sense. But I myself have always preferred English to my native language, so I understand the hype.
I've been wondering if in this song "back" is supposed to rhyme with "luck."

Maybe Melissa (a person) was their/his source of inspiritation? Or maybe they thought it was just another one of those cool American words and because of its coolness they wanted to use it? As you can see I don't have the slightest idea.

2. Tempted to say 4, but I definitely prefer L'Arc~En~Ciel's sound to that of Kung-Fu Generation, and moreover I think my opinion of 4 is based on its accompanying animation, which is more impressive than that of Ready Steady. GLEE for Hawkeye and Hayate, Mustang of course, and for the lovely blue-green ruins.

About the Melissa song, in the second verse, the guy sings about how he won't wish for wings- instead he wants to be able to dance in mid-air like Melissa. (Maybe Melissa is a goddess from some myth or religion...The Melissa PV had this woman in white sitting on a tree...)
Personally, I like Melissa the best out of all the openings, but Undo comes pretty close. I like the animation in Rewrite the best, though. (It's so cool when Ed jumps off the waterfall, and the part when Wrath is throwing stuff around in the hotel-place...)
Um, I have to say that I never really liked Ready Steady Go that much. Sorry to all the fans that are obsessed with the song, but I just don't especially like L'Arc en Ciel (I don't really know why, though)...The animation was really nice to watch though, especially the part with all the military people...
