While lyrics must abide to Forum Guidelines, the songs can be anything, of any genre, as long as it meets each week’s theme!

:headphones: Curious what Mixtape Monday is? :headphones:
Every week, we’ll post the title of our latest Mixtape, and you post a track of your choice in the comments below! We’ll follow up next Mixtape Monday with the full list of tunes collected from the week before.

The Queen of Fables is my favorite character from the series, so, imagining a pairing for her is… interesting. :stuck_out_tongue: Because I like that she’s a “real bad guy” versus, as she’d feel, a fake one, and seems to have a go big or go home mentality, while I don’t have a specific character in mind, I think she’d need someone who’s something of a Bonnie & Clyde match - someone also lacking in both a “line” and cares left to give. Someone who’d be there for her through thick and thin… very much the ride or die type who recognizes how special she is. :thinking: I like this as a choice for them, and feel the lyrics explain how they’d feel toward each other:

“My Beloved Monster,” by Eels

Ne-Yo’s, “Beautiful Monster,” too, methinks:


And because I’ve become a chronic show binger who often watches seasons after they end (no worries about spoilers, I do watch some of the episodes before the finale, so those don’t bother me), noting this choice is based on Season 1’s bit where Ivy was embarrassed to be around Kite Man. Doesn’t completely fit for the two, no, but, considering the title, I’d still probably choose this for the poor guy’s reaction upon putting 2+2 together (that had to have been a blow to his ego, lol). Also because I love the song and wanted to hear it again. :eyes:

“Self-Esteem,” by The Offspring

Disclaimer. I have not seen the show yet. Besides that “Release the Snyder Cut” gag. (I know, I’ve heard great things about it, I’m sorry!!!) But I could probably go off of the comics?

“Chemical”, by The Devil Wears Prada


Despite my sharing of the Zombie EP two weeks back, this is a pretty mellow song. This could be good for a Joker/Harley relationship. I kind of got the thought for this from the scene in the “2016 Task Force X” movie, at the ACE Chemicals plant.
“Every Rose Has Its Thorn”, by Poison

Well this probably points to a Harley/Ivy relationship. Especially with the plant AND Poison (heh heh) references. But from some of the comments I’ve seen, maybe this might be Kite-Man/Ivy? Since it seems to be more of a sad, bittersweet, or breakup song?

I was so happy to see Harley and Ivy happen. It might have taken forever, almost like we had to sit in a Toronto airport on the longest layover ever.
Rush - YYZ

We were teased in the middle of this season, almost as if Pam’s lips were poison.
Alice Cooper - Poison

The next time something happened it was like Harley was trying to get a kiss from a rose.
Seal - Kiss From A Rose

Then the relationship became more of a “less we said about it, the better” type of relationship.Even though Harley knew that she was home and that is where she wanted to be.
Talking Heads - This Must Be the Place

For my favorite DC couple:
Porcelan - Lois Lane

There were complications though. Mainly, Superman was too busy saving the world from Solomon Grundy.

Happily, they finally married. I like to think that Clark’s vows were something like this. Especially the part where he says, “Strange you never knew” as she was in love with Superman before she was in love with Clark.

Let us follow Harley’s emotional journey of relationships.
(This could be a much longer list, but I thought 21 songs was a good stopping point. EDIT: it’s now 22, because one of Harley’s epiphany moments is when Joker pushes her out the helicopter again. It’s a deep psychological moment and deserved it’s own song.)

I have a feeling Harley would be a big Scandal/Patti Smyth fan, and would probably have this song playing in her head as she declared her independence from Joker:

Commissioner Gordon and Clayface’s Hand? I never would have thought of that! Way to go, my friend!

Gordo & Clayfaces Hand! That’s what I’m talkin’ about!! :fist:t3: Excellent @xLOVEandDoomPatrolx :tada:

Harley Quinn tunes you say @MissInkBlot? :thinking:

Well, looks like it’s a good thing I always have my music on shuffle as I have gotten quite a few ideas now. :sweat_smile:

First I’ll take a look back at some of the tunes I had in mind a little while back for Harley and Joker…

Next, I’ll take a dive into the Ivy and Kite Man relationship… This first song is what I thought upon the first interactions between the two.

This next one follows their relationship for a little while, especially when Kite Man and Ivy were “floating on air.”

This next one I’m thinking could be used for both Kite Man and Ivy and then later on Harley and Ivy. Also, thinking about it, it might also work for Joker thanking Harley for “delivering” Batman to him at the end of season 1. :sweat_smile:

This last one I think is a good fit for a certain “moment” that happened between Harley and Ivy in season 2 that sent the threads on fire. :sweat_smile:
(My friend in college had one day played this song while we worked. Also works really well for my cardio workouts, and I have to say listening to the Swedish version for so long, the English version is a bit weird :sweat_smile:)

Okay, full transparency, I haven’t kept up with Harley Quinn. I watched the first three or four episodes of Season 1 and fell out of it (please don’t block me). That being said, I’ll give it a shot anyway:

I do remember Kite-Man throwing himself at Ivy even though she is waaaaaaaay out of his league. I did feel for the poor dope. I know what it’s like to be that guy. Here’s my favorite song about being that guy:

I don’t need to watch too much of the show to know that The Joker is toxic for Harley. He’s the worst. He gaslights her, shifts blame, and just takes and takes… like a vampire. Here’s a song about vampires and leaving a toxic relationship:

Harley and Ivy are a thing now… right? If so, good for them. It’s about time. Here’s a song about being in love from my very favorite band:
