This Week’s Theme: John Stewart

This week’s playlist is highlighting one of the brightest stars of the DC Universe and the star of last week’s Green Lantern: Beware My Power-John Stewart! John has had a long and distinguished career as a member of some highly selective teams-the Green Lantern Corps, Justice League, and the USMC. What songs do you think would be on his favorite playlist? Share your picks with us, below!

Here is my pick to start things off:

Due to the high volume of submissions and the limited number of hours in a day, we’ll be selecting two songs from each member, but feel free to share as many as you like!

Hello @Green.Lantern, When I think of Jon Stewart, I think of him as a military guy. Hope @Vroom would agree with my first pick! :military_helmet::us:

YO JOE!!!
Actually…YO LANTERN!!!

Two songs. First up is “Sunshine Superman” by Donovan, which is the only song I can think of that mentions Green Lantern (although I think it was probably either Alan Scott or Hal Jordan given the song came out in 1966).

Second, I seem to recall John’s original appearance was based on Sir Sidney Poitier, so “To Sir, With Love” by Lulu makes sense!

I don’t think I knew that, about Sydney Poitier! I watched In The Heat of the Night recently, so know I’m picturing Poitier as John. That would’ve been amazing.

He would have been fantastic as John!

John Stewart always reminds me of JLU. That’s where I got to know John much better.

Greetings Mix Mob! :notes: :inkys_mixtape_mob2: :dancer:t2: So, John Stewart!

I’m pretty sure I shared this for a Memorial Day playlist a few years ago, but I love it and it feels right for this. :saluting_face: He’s playing a 1917 Wurlitzer in a stairwell and :sob: it’s beautiful.

Evening Colors- Jim Steele

And this one, because… Detroit. :green_heart: Plz enjoy and have a great week!

Here’s my choice for a song, and I think we can imagine John Stewart heading up to the clouds on a mission while this tune plays in the background:

Easily my favorite song by Donovan. He also has one that mentions Supergirl in some context, but I’ve not yet heard it.

As for John…I’ll have to think this one out. Like @TravisMorgan, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited are where I came to know John, and their musical openings are pretty darn triumphant calls to badassery for John, I feel.

I think you’re right about Donovan mentioning Supergirl, but I can’t recall which song! Anyway, “Sunshine Superman” has always been my favorite Donovan song too.
