returnable memories is the most nostalgic and melancholic music of all.... i love it...

Um, from what I can translate by ear, "Asu e no Basho" is kind of about Ed (and Al) journeying towards tomorrow and how they'll keep moving forward...
"Returnable Memories" is a lot darker, and I think it was about Ed trying to take back what he lost even though it's painful, and whether it was possible (something like that).
In "Hagane no Kokoro," Ed sings about trying to taking back things he's lost and how he needs Al, Al sings about always being together and sharing both happiness and sadness, and Winry sings about keeping Ed & Al in her thoughts when they're far away and always being there to surround them with kindness (although she's a little sad)...
Um, I hope that helps a little. I don't understand the entire songs because my Japanese isn't that good (I'm still learning it in school...), and I can't find any of the lyrics online. But if anyone can find a website with the lyrics or someting, I could give it a try...
Also, about the song poll, I personally like Returnable Memories the most. (Probably because of the cool background music and the fact that I like sad songs...) But I love all the songs a lot! (The instrumental for "Asu e no Basho" is nice to listen to too...)

OK, I've finally made my decision and came up with Hagane no Kokoro. Partly based on the fabulous traslations done by Elderberry. Thank you! And partially because of the nice beat and wonderful vocals. *__*

my favorite of the 3 would be returnable memories. and it's 'the only one i can stand to have on repeat endlessly XD tho asu e no basho comes pretty close too. hagane no kokoro toook the longest for me to get use to, but after that, it's' not that bad. >.>
