comment Why are Japanese vowels occasionally rhotacised in songs?
You said you hear this sound when you "listen to Japanese music" but do you only listen to rock? The sound you describe is prevalent in rock music because it is thought to sound cool. Extending the ends of words with a drawl that borders on an r sound at times. I always thought it came from a similar phenomenon heard in American hard rock and metal, e.g., "off to never never landaaah" of Metallica's Enter Sandman. And you said of one of your examples that you "hear a very distinct [r] at the end of 「たいよう」." I can pretty much guarantee you that is nonexistent to the Japanese ear.
