I’ll start things off with a classic:
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!

We’ll follow up next Mixtape Monday with the list of tunes, two from each user, collected from the week before.

@Don-El, you don’t want to miss this week Mixtape Monday!
and I always wanted to borrow this one for the Legion
I don’t really know Legion of Super-Heroes all that well, but from what @idle453.87595 has told me this song is probably appropriate.
The Legion of Super-Heroes is one of the corners of DC I’m least familiar with. I mostly just know them from appearances in other comics. I finally started reading The Legion, which was highly recommended to me a while back, and am really liking it.
I could see this playlist having a lot of Pink Floyd on it.
He doesn’t look very pink to me:
Well Obviously the entirety of this CD
I haven’t heard it myself, but it does exist.
Also, a while back, I tried (unsuccessfully) to create songs for each legionnaire. I came up with the ideas of My Name’s Rokk (Let it rock) and Mindreader (Maneater). although very few lyrics were actually made.
in all seriousness, how about Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Won’t Back Down.
that sums up the Legion Philosophy pretty well. (They fought Darkseid and a cloud that ate suns.) and here’s a page or two to reinforce.
Gotta love Karate Kid trying to take out Darkseid.
And now the awesome George Perez spread
Sorry it’s so long, but I do love the Legion
And @Cradle2theGabe, there are ate least 4 continuities shown here.
I’ve been thinking about spacey futuristic music for a Legion soundtrack.
Telstar - The Tornadoes
A funky instrumental celebrating the Telstar Satellite that was so futuristic back in the 1960s.
For Science - They Might Be Giants
A kitschy song about girls from Venus and getting missiles ready to destroy the universe.
Maggot Brain - Funkadelic
I’d post a link, but there is a little bad language at the beginning of this spacey instrumental. It just reminds me of drifting through space.
