This Week’s Theme: Penguin!

This week, we’re highlighting the 80th anniversary one of the greatest villains ever - The Penguin! Over the decades, Oswald Cobblepot has been in many classic comics and depicted by several different fantastic actors. What are the songs that would make up his favorite playlist? Share your choices with us, below!

I’ll start things off with a song that I am absolutely certain Penguin would relate to (and I would be shocked if Frank Sinatra hasn’t been depicted performing at the Iceberg Lounge at least once):

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.

We all know penguins don’t fly, but The Penguin did (see the 1966 Batman movie and many classic Penguin comic book stories). Here’s a song that would probably be going through his noggin as he’s using one of these specially equipped umbrellas:

Ok I’m back, here’s my two pick to celebrate 80th Birthday to my all time favorite villian…

With Minnie Drivers singing this from The Phantom Of The Opera movie, I think it’s a perfect song for him as well.:penguin:

What can I say, I Love Batman The Animated Series! And here’s The Penguin’s theme. :penguin:
