I’m not sure about everyone else, but as a writer, I often come up with my best story ideas because of music. Sometimes songs will even remind me of favorite characters from comics, books, or television shows.
Are there any certain songs that remind you of characters from DC Comics? I’ve always found it fun to see just how differently we view the same characters and wanted to see what others think in the context of music. Please post songs that remind you of certain characters. If you would like to share why, please feel free to do so.
Here is a list of some of mine just to get the conversation started:
(Everyone knows I am a big JSA fan, so I will start there)
- Power Girl: All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor
- Wildcat: Candy Man - Christina Aguilera
- Nuklon/Atom Smasher: (Al has 2 songs depending on era) Talking Heads - Once In A Lifetime or Radioactive - Imagine Dragons
- Sand: Silent Lucidity - Queensrÿche
- Black Adam: Ride The Lightning - Metallica (you expected anything else?)
And of course some non-JSA characters:
- Martian Manhunter: Veteran Of The Psychic Wars - Blue Öyster Cult
- Deathstroke: In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company - The Dead South
I had ideas for more but my mind went sort of blank when I sat down and put my hands on the keyboard. (The kids running in and out of the room and getting interrupted by phone calls hasn’t helped either)
Anyway…I’m more interested in your list than mine. I hope we can have some fun with this and keep it mostly family-friendly.
