First up, the obvious. They better use this in the upcoming Penguin show!

And the first “bird” song that came to my mind.

I love this! You’ve really made my day @ZatannaZ! Thankyou thankyou, thankyou! :penguin_smirkhqtas: :penguin:
Anytime I hear this song from Phantom of the opera, I think of The Penguin, Batman Returns does have a Phantom of the opera vibe, wonder if you ever notice! :slightly_smiling_face:

I saw the theme at work… but I have to wait until I get back home to post my songs. I was hoping no one picked it yet hahaha! Haven’t heard your share, that was a good one!

I thought of All Time Low’s or Postmodern Jukebox’s covers. Went with Travis Barker. I can chalk it up as a nod to our resident Cobblepot/blink-182 stan @basicallytimdrake :wink:

They’re all great covers! I don’t think I have ever heard a bad cover of “Umbrella.”

I’ve been looking for an excuse to put a link to this song up. Many thanks:

The Bird’s The Word (youtube.com)

It’s annoying, the songs I’m thinking of that fit Oswald are too explicit and I can’t find clean versions of them. :sob:

Too obvious…?
The face Howie Bowens makes when he delivers Let It Snow, Let It Snow is possibly the greatest music video moment since the Buggles used a title camera to film themselves.

I continue to hold out hope that at some point we will get a movie which does the obvious and has Oswald Cobblepot putting this record on and do the classic terrifying yet oddly well choreographed boogie while viciously beating someone (or multiple someones) to death scene. Or probably dancing while he has beautiful women with bird nicknames do the actual killing for him.

I can not explain exactly why this gives me Penguin vibes, but it does. Sorry not sorry.

And can’t not include this one… since he went through all the effort of making sure it was television friendly.
