Welcome back to Mixtape Monday, where we bring you soundtracks inspired by your favorite comic book characters.
This Week’s Theme: Zatanna
Hello, music lovers and DC enthusiasts! This week, as the spotlight turns and the curtain rises, we present to you a magical musical journey inspired by the enchanting Zatanna. With her spellbinding blend of stage performance and genuine sorcery, these tracks aim to encapsulate the essence of her charm, mystery, and power. Let the show begin!
NML swinging in again with more of the greatest hits of bands that retired before you were born!
@capo-mage you don’t want to miss this week!
Makes for a very interesting sound I like that you chose reversed music for her!
(also me thinking about what a nightmare it must’ve been to clean silly string out of guitar strings…)
Okay, obviously if you’re talking Zatanna you have to include “Oh, Pretty Woman” by Roy Orbison
And “Magic” by The Cars comes to mind.
Jk, I just thought of another one! A great Di Bari cover.
And this awesome variant.
And this feels right, too.
Ahhh I totally forgot about Crystal Castles! Excellent choice!
Anybody who’s a fan of DC Superhero Girls will no doubt remember this song:
I mean … I’m pretty sure there’s a comic somewhere that she’s actually on page singing this while getting dressed…
And, y’know, maybe a few songs not just about her clothes…
And back to the fishnets.
Aaaand …conceptually, sure, nearly every JLD story arc. But mostly just for the line “I can kick ass and talk backwards / I hang out with a whole bunch of slackers”
It’s Magic - Pilot
Strange Magic - ELO
Five Gears In Reverse - Elvis Costello and the Attractions
