🎶 Mixtape Monday: FanDome Fun! 🎶

Happy Mixtape Monday, all!

We have good news to share with all of you - it seems our Krypton playlist was found to be a success… both on this planet and elsewhere! But, honestly, can less than that honestly be expected after looking at the list of songs you shared? Not only were they perfect fits for the feel of the show and the characters chosen, but it did its own part in restoring honor to the House of El, and for that, we send kudos!

Oh man, it took me forever to find this song, despite it being such a staple in my musical diet while growing up, lol. Curious if any of you’ve ever heard it before? :eyes:

“Video Game Song” (Nightcore Version), by Jaki Rose


Side note: To our lovely Music Mixers, new and old, my apologies for being missing in action as of late. I was recovering from ailments I’ve made mention of occasionally in passing that made typing difficult (hard lesson learned: ergonomics = important), so it’s taken a bit to catch up. Almost done doing so, however (minor flare up this weekend, but yes, the others will all be responded to :heart:), so early apologies for the sudden influx of notifications you might receive (+ my distantly heard “mwahaha!”) after the Kraken is unleashed. :eyes:

Well, if geeky is the theme… I could go on for quite a bit. But I’ll try to limit myself. :stuck_out_tongue:

Let’s start with movies:
“Throne Room/End Title”, by Galactic Empire

And I probably should throw in something DC related this week of course…
“An Ideal of Hope Meets Metal”, by 331Erock

Now on to video games:
“The Legend Of Zelda”, by August Burns Red

And surprisingly I can throw in some classy this week!
“Super Mario Bros. Tap Dance Medley”, by Postmodern Jukebox (ft. Demi Remick)

Ah DC FanDome MissInkBlot… Looking forward to a lot of things that they have offered on the schedule! :grin:

Thank you for also sharing that tune as I had not heard it before! :musical_note: :sunglasses: :+1:

Now… For my list, I’ll start with this tune from AC/DC to capture my overall excitement for it. :smiley:

This next AC/DC tune also captures what I will be thinking about when it gets to the Black Adam and Shazam panels… :cloud_with_lightning:

This next tune will keep me going and the energy high throughout the event. :metal: :sunglasses:

Also keeping the energy up with be none other than this tune. :muscle::smiley:

I also have to include some New Order as well @ashleywilbanks! :superman_hv_4:

And to conclude, it would be to have all the themes for the shows that I’ve fit on my schedule. :smiley:

Well, can’t have “Geek Week” without …

“Geek Boogie”, by Ira Newborn and the Geeks and yes I’m gonna poach a couple other songs from Sixteen Candles soundtrack. Michael Anthony Hall was the King of Geeks, dorks, dipwads, whatever he called himself, maybe it was just leader :thinking:
“Kazooed on Klassics”, by The Temple City Kazoo Orchestra, and

“Rev Up”, by The Revillos, yep I even get movin to this song. Not very good but.

While searching for these on YouTube I came across “The Peter Gunn Theme”, performed by Poison Ivy of The Cramps, (this was the first time I heard it and thought this would be a cool add-in), and how about the opening credit theme song to the 1970s Wonder Woman TV show. Are those okay for DC tie ins?

Lastly the theme music to Johnny Quest, both opening and closing music from the 1960’s show. This is one of my favorite theme songs, I even bought a Hanna-Barbera theme song cd to have it. It was before downloads and yes I still own it.

Thanks, everyone have a good week.

With the Supergirl comic cancelled and the show on a long hiatus I was really excited for the Supergirl panel, but then you know, it turns out it is the only show without a panel. So this song kind of channels the Supergirl fandom at the moment.

I think this song is appropriate for the Fandome because if Steven Tyler doesn’t want to miss a thing, neither do any of us in the Fandome.
