My favorite right now is "Kuchizuke" by Bucktick. It is the opening for Shiki.
On a random, sorta related, but technically not the question: My favorite closing is "Still Doll" by Kanon Wakeshima. It is from Vampire Knight.

No particular order. Here are the openings that had such good songs and sequences that i never skipped them when watching the show for the first time.
Macross Frontier Second Op "Lion"
Soul Eater First OP "Resonance"
Both openings of Sword Art Online: "Crossing Field" and "Innocence" (can't choose. both songs are great and i love fairies. They don't appear much in anime)
Zero no Tsukaima Season 2 "I Say Yes"
Shakugan no Shana: First Op "Hishoku no Sora" plus both openings of Season 3 "Light My Fire" (which was frickin COOL) and "Serment"
Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood: First Op "Again", Second "Hologram", and Fourth "Period"
Romeo and Juliet "You Raise Me Up" (while not very original, this classic song sounds beautiful in Japanese. Also the sequence is exquisite and pulls your heartstrings)

Lastly, any opening featuring May'n. I fell in love with her voice hearing her perform Sheryl's singing on Macross Frontier ("Lion" was a duet with her and Ranka's VA). After seeing that anime, I watch every opening with her songs without skipping. Those I've seen are:
"Chase the World" (Accel World)
"Ready Go!" (Okami-san and her Seven Companions)
"Scarlet Ballet" (Aria the Scarlet Ammo)

Mirai Nikki, Shiki, Cowboy Bebop, Durarara!!, Gundam 00, Magi, Mawaru Penguindrum and Utena are the first I think of when it comes to memorable openings. More so due to their opening animations than the songs played, though great songs certainly helped. There's plenty of great openngs to anime, in fact I find openers and closers some of the better parts of many animes, but those are the first few I think of when in reference to personal favourites. I'm also referring to first openings only.

I thing that the best opening song ever is Tougenkyou Alien, from Gintama. It was a big suprise for fans that had been waiting for new episodes about years. That song and opening video describes the Gintama world better than anything!

According to Bleach Wiki, it's the 9th opening, but anyway.

I agree. Velonica is the best Bleach OP. Now, as for the best ED, that's a discussion for another thread.

mmm Opening.

There are lot of great sounding Op songs but I am starting to prefer OP songs that are made to fit the anime instead ie original songs like Yoko Kanno's works or rewritten lyrics like Ixion Saga DT

But the songs by artist and bands that I remember:
Durarara - Uragiri No Yuuyake - Theatre Brook
Naruto Fighting Dreamers - Flow
Gintama Pray - Bt Tommy
