Welcome to another exciting edition of Mixtape Monday! I want to thank you all your amazing contributions to last week’s Shazam playlist.
This Week’s Theme: Arthur Fleck
I’m thrilled to be hosting for the first time and embarking on this musical journey with all of you. Today, we delve into the enigmatic mind of Arthur Fleck, the infamous Joker. As one of my favorite variations of the Joker, I’m excited to dive into his musical tastes and hopefully explore other intriguing variations of our favorite DC characters in the future.
Let’s kick things off with a few songs that come to mind when I think of Arthur Fleck:
Welcome (again) to our new host!
“Smile”, by Jimmy Durante
“Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive”, by Bing Crosby
I guess, I’m taking a more melancholy approach this week, while the songs are “uplifiting”, it’s almost ironic for someone who’s constantly struggling…
Hello @Stoic_Jester! Welcome aboard! Here’s my two picks that I think Arthur Fleck would listen to as he become the Joker!
*Please forgive my laughing…
I could just picture him dancing to this while he bombs a precinct or something lol
First up, “Make 'Em Laugh” by Donald O’Connor from Singin’ in the Rain.
And then “They’re Coming to Take Me Away” by Napoleon IV (I doubt The Joker ever had a dog, but i hate to to think what would happen if they ran away…)
This is what I’m vibing with for Arthur Fleck
Here’s a version of the classic (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction that I think Arthur Fleck can totally get behind:
I’m excited to see this continuing, and this is a great topic! My first reaction was just thinking that Arthur really didn’t strike me as the type to listen to music, since he’s so troubled and miserable, but then I remembered he did at least watch music on TV when he was pretending to dance.
I can see Arthur listening to this one and definitely relating to it:
And while I’m not entirely sure this would be Arthur’s type of genre, I think the lyrics fit him perfectly and could be something he’d sing himself:
I think the Joker would like these two.

Laugh - The Monkees
