This Week’s Theme: Superman: Space Age

For this week’s playlist, we’ll be travelling to the stars and back in time for Superman: Space Age! What do you think are the perfect songs for this special Black Label Superman series? Share your picks with us, below!

(And if you need to read it for some inspiration first, you can find the comic here!)

Since it’s impossible for me to hear the phrase “space age” without hearing this music, I’ll start things off with this:

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!

:headphones: Curious what Mixtape Monday is? :headphones:
Every week, we’ll post the title of our latest Mixtape, and you post tracks of your choice in the comments below! We’ll follow up next Mixtape Monday with the list of tunes, two from each user, collected from the week before. And if our “What’s the Last Song You Heard?” thread is any indication, you all have superb taste in tunes!

:vulcan_salute::grinning: Greeting @Green.Lantern, I’ve come in peace and offer you these 2 great music to enjoy, hope you like them.

May you live long and Prosper. :slightly_smiling_face:


I’ve been wanting to read this series, it looks super interesting and that retro space-age vibe is SO my thing.
I’m going to start with a bit of a wild card: Five Years by David Bowie, a song about the apocalypse.


I don’t know why I didn’t think of it, but Star Trek music is a great fit for this series.
So is apocalypse themed, music, now that I think about it. :stuck_out_tongue:


This might be an obvious choice, but…


My second pick is a song I’ve always associated with Superman in general, but I think it’s especially fitting for this series.

Plus, it’s one of my favorite songs of the 60s.


First up is “Rocket Man” by Elton John


And now “Sky Pilot” by The Animals


“Planet A”, by The Devil Wears Prada

“Crazy” (Space Jazz cover), by Postmodern Jukebox (orignally by Gnarls Barkley)


Let’s go with some instrumentals this time:


Might be obvious but it needs to be on here.

This probably fits the time period better though (assuming it takes place in the 1960s)


Well hello there G.L. And everyone else. :wave: :sunglasses:

Superman: Space Age. :superman_hv_3: :milky_way:

This first one is for Superman and company in what they are probably thinking about… :smile:

And next… If it is the end of the world for Superman and company… :eyes:

I’m feeling fine… Because that is a job for Superman! :superman_hv_4:


Space Truckin’ - Deep Purple

Children Of The Sun - Billy Thorpe

  1. Written In The Stars by Tinie Tempah
  1. Drag Me Down by One Direction

Check out this cool article by NASA about the music video!



It is so good.


Spoiler-y notes on the setting:

It starts with the death of JFK on 22 November 1963, and continues decade by decade until the mid-1980s, ending concurrently with Crisis on Infinite Earths.


My takeaway from this thread is not enough people have read this series.
