This Week’s Theme:
Party Time: Scooby Doo-Style!

Jinkies, guys! Have you heard the news? If not, behold! We’re excited to announce that Scooby Doo comics are coming to DC Universe! Have you been looking forward to their arrival? If you’re like us and already going, “Lemme at 'em! LEMME AT 'EM!!” at the thought of adding them to your must read lists, let us know what theme songs you’d play to accompany them! :paw_prints:

Scooby Doo’s 50th Anniversary was last year, too, so if you missed out on that, we invite you to make up for it by joining us in shaking a tail feather and partying like it’s 1969! :wink:

Share your party picks with us below! :partying_face:

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. And if our “What’s the Last Song You Heard?” thread is any indication, you all have superb taste in tunes!

Okay, so, staying at home has made my family unit a bit guitar cover crazy, and we’ve been on a 60s kick already. I, therefore, present to you a few of the favs we’ve been looking up - all from 1969, and yes, you’ll probably notice they’re all from the Quarantine Time, “one day soon, we’ll be back on the road together, ruining bad guys’ plans, and being called meddling kids again!” playlist I’ve been compiling, lol. :wink:

“I Can’t Get Next to You,” by The Temptations


“I Want You Back,” by The Jackson 5

“Someday We’ll Be Together,” by Diana Ross & The Supremes

“Come Together,” by The Beatles

and this is because I saw Taraji P. Henson on the “Feeding America Comedy Festival” last night, and it made me want to watch her movie of the same name (lol I love how they pronounce words like “burning” in that song :stuck_out_tongue:):

“Proud Mary,” by Creedence Clearwater Revival

:rage:I would’ve gotten away with it if it wasn’t for you meddling kids and your dog too!

@Izzy11 - Ahh, I concur! Sharing a video with their songs below, but wanted to ask if you happen to have a favorite of the bunch that you’d want me to make sure is on the list?

@Reaganfan78 - Yes! :slight_smile: Thanks for joining in on saying it - it’s the first thing to pops into my mind when I think of Scooby Doo, and it always brings a smile. :wink: Looking forward to hearing your choices later!

“Those Nights”, by Skillet


Basically this song was written from the singer’s memories of his youth, just spending time with friends.

“Scooby Doo, Where Are You?”, by MxPx


And he has his own song! We NEED to have that somewhere!

Yes @MissInkBlot! I can’t wait to have a nice read of all those Scooby comics soon. :star_struck:
Now, how best to honor such a great character of my childhood from watching the classic Scooby show to A Pup Named Scooby Doo? :thinking:

First, I guess I should start off with the themes for the episodes of Scooby Doo that I did get to watch. :sunglasses:



Next, I can’t help of thinking of this song that the villains would like as to dissuade those meddling kids and their dog too. (Also happy to include some CCR too :grin:).

It also might not be a little coupe as the fun Beach Boys sing, but that Mystery Machine is the fastest set of wheels in town. :wink: :laughing:

Oh and here is some evidence to prove that the Mystery Machine is the fastest around. :joy:

To finish it off, I am thinking of this number when Scooby gets his Scooby snacks and it’s always a good time when Scooby and the gang do their thing. :sunglasses:

Season if the Witch- Donovan for moooood. :ghost:
Spooky- Atlanta Rhythm Section for Daphne, ‘cause…obviously :dancer:t2: A cross between SMG & cartoon Daphne, btw.

Hungry- Paul Revere & The Raiders for Scoob…singing to his snacks like they’re his GF.
Nowhere to Run- Martha & The Vandellas for Shaggy because he just can’t quit the gang.

One more thing! Lana Del Rey: (since she came up last week) if there’s 1 thing I’ll defend until the end of time is that she does some :ok_hand: fantastic covers.
(I am a sucker for a good cover—guilty!)


I would use this version, because I prefer it, but it’s not era-appropriate…?? Wanted to share it w/ you anyway. Or use it. I’ll leave that to you!
And yes, Push is def a great workout song!
…got my mom (& all the ladies in my tribe) written all over it, btw.
