I’ll start things off with two classics based on Future State: Superman of Metropolis:

Jon Kent reminds me a lot of Phillip Hamilton (from Hamilton). Both have fathers who are highly revered and leave/left a legacy that can’t be beaten. Both have humongous pressure from their peers to live up to those expectations.

How about Remy Zero’s “Save Me” just for the fun of it?

Carry on, my wayward son
There’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more

This is shaping up to be a fun playlist. Since Jon is a relatively new character, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but any playlist that has Kansas, Springsteen, and The Animals is a good one. :slight_smile:

Did I forget to do clean version of Eminem just the two of us for Booster & Blue Beetle week? I just noticed it got removed, but I didn’t remove it. I didn’t see any messages alerting me that it was removed? I completely couldn’t care less, not upset AT ALL. Just curious if that’s what happened? If so, I apologize. I thought I selected the clean version but I probably forgot…?

Great ones especially Dayton, Ohio’s own The Breeders, The Reverend whom I’ve seen over 10xs in concert & all of them in Dayton or Cincinnati, & They Might Be Giants.

Sorry for the late response this week, I felt creatively bankrupt for this theme… BUT, I heard these songs this week and for some reason I thought they’d work, so here they are!
“Take Me”, by Hawk Nelson

“Reinventing Your Exit”, by Underoath
