Has anyone listened to the Birds of Prey movie soundtrack? What do you think?
I personally didn’t really listen to that kind of music much. I’m more of 90s grunge music kind of guy. My knowledge of current music started getting spotty around 2005. Today, out of new artists, I’m most familiar with Melanie Martinez’s music. That’s kind of it.
The BoP soundtrack is pretty good. I found myself liking this poppy, silly stuff. I found myself downloading the soundtrack off my music streaming service, in case I lose reception.
I don’t know any of the songs’ names, except for Boss Bit (so to not swear on here) and It’s A Man’s World, but have listened to the entire soundtrack over 10 times.
I feel I like the soundtrack because I can see this kind of music appealing to BoP’s Harley Quinn. Like, I can see her listening to this music while chewing gum and feeding Bruce. That and classic rock. I don’t see Batman TAS’s listening to it. Never. I’m not sure if current animated series on DCU Harley would prefer this kind of music, but she wouldn’t mind it.
So, my point is, I can see this soundtrack being a playlist on Harley’s phone. I see her drinking to it on a boat with the other Gotham City Sirens or a troop of strippers, both male and female, after cashing in that diamond.
This soundtrack just works. It’s really catchy at times but not in an annoying fashion. And it feels like an in movie universe experience. Like an extension of the film.
I love that Black Canary’s actor sang It’s Man’s World for real. That was a beautiful cover. She has a great voice.
The fact that it is sung in Sionis’club was a lovely auditory and visual contrast to the display of female strength at the end by Black Canary.
A song of male dominance in the club of a powerful man. She, submissive to Sionis at first, she uses the same voice which broke that glass in the club to take out waves of Sionis’ men. I don’t recall any female thugs. It was 5 women against a small army of men. All 5 women took on armed thugs which was amazing. But Black Canary showed girl power big time as she had such an enormous strength in that beautiful voice which dwarfed Sionis’ power of fear, crime, and money. Sionis loved her voice. He was captivated by it once. But that was a suppressed voice, something he underestimated, owned. Her true voice was something amazing and freeing.
