I'm with most of the people here It sounds cooler like if someone speaks a different language to someone they are hitting on.

Well, the Japanese people could really say "ice cream".

Maybe they are practicing their English?

I think of it as a combination of things.. sounding cool, sounding better, flowing better, and so on for the particular part the English words are in.

Uverworld and Abingdon Boys School both do this often. There are a few other Japanese bands that also use some heavy use of English lyrics in their songs.

I'm assuming it's a a "coolness" factor. Just as even now, French words used (in proper context-- otherwise it sounds stupid or pretentious) in English language communication can lend an air of elegance or sophistication. There's no inherent reason why it should, but it has such a connotation in enough peoples' minds that it works out that way.

Well a main reason is some words just rhyme better in English.

As well, the Japanese language does not have all words to describe all situations. In other words, there is no Japanese words for what they want to say so they use English.
