This Week’s Theme:
What Song Would You Dedicate to COIE’s Fallen?

WARNING: Potential Spoilers Ahead!

As we wind down from the first installment of Crisis of Infinite Earths, we can’t help but ask… have you recovered yet? :hushed: With so many Earths and their character populations now gone, which characters do you miss already? Are there any you feel the crossover’s plot would’ve been doomed without, or should’ve kept around?

Share a song you’d like to dedicate to the memory of one of COIE’s fallen, or to another character you found pivotal to this event’s crossover. Both major and minor characters count!

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!

I’m kind of breaking my own rules, since the theme asks about one character, and I’m devoting this to all of the fallen, so you’re free to rebel as I have. I like songs that are bittersweet and heavy, so Anadel’s “Remember Me” came to mind:

Now I got a couple of songs idea, just give me a minute! :slightly_smiling_face:

Already? :hushed: I can’t wait to hear what you have in mind, @Reaganfan78!
(If they’re sad ones, I’m already anticipating my saying, “I’m not crying, you’re crying!” lol)

Play this with a picture of Superman holding Supergirl in his arm and Batgirl speaking at Supergirl’s funeral, you get a really sad heartbreaking music!

I’m trying to stay spoiler free because I haven’t watched it yet. I’m 1 season behind on everything but I still wanted to join Mixtape Monday because it’s my favorite!

I just wanted to leave this song here : Die and Live Forever by The Growlers dedicated to everyone who might have died. There isn’t a single character I don’t like so I’m feeling sad about what might happen

:notes:Bleed together, suffer together
Laugh and cry together
Live and die remember
Die and live forever :notes:

@Reaganfan78 - Ohh, I loved Phantom of the Opera, so I can only respond with “I approve!” :slight_smile: My goodness, though, the “The Civil War” has my heartstrings being tugged. It’s strange how, despite the topic being completely different, it manages to give me some Titanic, “My Heart Will Go On” vibes (the more instrumental version). What is it about those period movies? They have such great (and sorrowful) soundtracks… :sob: Thank you so much for framing it so well with the scenario mentioned!

@TornadoSoup - Thank you for the spoiler blur there - completely understand! It’s a great choice, though, and I’m glad it provides something more upbeat, particularly when compared with my own choice. It’s a superb “palate-cleanser” of sorts, and kind of makes me think of the “remember me as I was in good times” concept. What is it about that particular scene (the original, I mean, vs others), that you like most? o.o

@MovieAddict - Oddly enough, though I really like Sarah MacLachlan, that hadn’t come to mind for me (“Fallen” usually does when I think of her), so I ended up wagging my own finger at myself for not thinking of it, either. >,< Thank you for bringing it up… that definitely fits in well! A superb choice!

@seitan - That’s a great addition! Especially in that it keeps the very, very, very long-term in mind, in its inclusion of forever. I like the idea of that representing everyone, and love that the lyrics are so inclusive in something of a “we are all one” way. I’d never heard this song, but I’m quite fond of it already. :slight_smile: Thank you for that, as well as your kind words - we’re honored to hear you like Mixtape Monday so much! :heart:

I’m out of here for now, but will check in later. Thank you for participating, everyone! :slight_smile: There are so many superb choices already shared that I can only imagine what the rest of the week will bring!

For this week I’ll be honoring some fallen ships that the crisis took from us.

I’ll make a poll for it and see if that works. Everyone vote for the one you like the most.

WestAllen

Westallen
Knowing the future has always been the curse of the WestAllen relationship. Whether it was about Barry disappearing or the article being written by someone else, they always fought to change it, trying to hold on to eachother. In the end it was Iris who died young.
Laleh - Some die young
YouTube

Supercorp

Supercorp
A friendship that many wishes to be more was lined with lies and betrayals. The world ended before they could make up and find forgiveness and maybe more. In the end, they were always on the same side. They wanted to make the world better.
Enigma - Why!
YouTube

Dyla

Dyla
Lyla had been working with the monitor all along, letting Diggle live in a relationship of lies. After a final kiss she commits the ultimate betrayal of Diggle as she lets the antimatter wave take him.
Weeping Willows - Emptiness

Olicity

Olicity
After walking setting out on a quest alone to give his wife and children a chance, Oliver dies. Oliver becomes the new Spectre and sends his daughter away when she comes to look for him to try to return him to life.
Beborn Beton - Another World
YouTube

Brainia

Brainia
Coming from the future he was one of the world’s brightest thinkers. No matter how many tiny boxes he compartmentalized his heart in, he couldn’t think straight when the dreaming girl of his dreams was near. She must have seen the end coming and he would have known.
Jonathan Coulton - When you go
YouTube

Coldwave

Coldwave
Mick Rory was alone. Drowning himself in beer, he still had the voice of Snart with him. When you are on the wave rider, time means nothing, he had all the time in the world.
Air Supply - I can wait forever

Batmoore

Batmoore
Kate Kane never lost her love for Sophie Moore. A thing that should have been right went wrong. After Moore got married to Tyler, Kate sought her out again trying to find out where they were. The antimatter wave ultimately took them both, leaving Kate alone.

I’m going to rebel @MissInkBlot style, and go with a song that can cover multiple characters.

Ok here’s another sad song, Sweet dreams by Patsy Cline, this song was released after Cline was tragically killed in a plane crash. I think this makes a perfect tribute to the 90s Flash death if Tina was thinking about him.:pensive:

@Coville - I love the idea of honoring ships, and really appreciate the accompanying rationale behind each one, as well as the extra suspense added, now that I see that the top two are neck and neck. :hushed: It’s always so difficult for me to choose one because I always end up liking them all the options you mention, so I thank you for adding the poll - I can’t wait to see which wins!

@Vroom - The added support for rebellion’s welcomed, especially for songs like those. :slight_smile: I’m with the top comment on the “My Immortal” video that that asks, “Does anybody else still have a hard time believing that this song is nearly two decades old?” Listening to that today still gives me the same chills it did when I first heard it years ago. When I think of The Police, I usually think happier songs like “Message in a Bottle,” so I hadn’t thought of that option, nor that one for Scorpions… with that combo, I was back to being weepy by the time “Wind of Change” was over, lol. Thank you for sharing them - they’re sublime choices!

@Reaganfan78 - You know, that’s the type of song I can imagine being used in one of the show’s episodes, too. Having spent more time time in the Fallout universe than I should admit, and listening to the radio in it most of the time where similar is played, it’s become easier to automatically think of specific tunes during scenes, so I can understand why you’d choose that one. The tragic story it comes with is definitely fitting, though I hope you don’t mind my reaching for your box of tissues. I certainly needed them earlier. :sob:

@Anonymousbluebeetle - The introduction for that song’s so pretty… and it so deftly eases you right into the depth of emotion to be found in the lyrics, that it’s both comforting in its method, and disquieting in its overall sadness at the same time. Did you have a specific character or moment from the COIE episodes in mind for that, or were you dedicating it to all of the fallen?

@TornadoSoup - I’m liking where your mind’s going with that song! If I were a superhero, I could see using it as a rallying call to indicate that no matter what, all hope is not lost - where there’s a will, there’s a way, and indeed, it’s not over yet. I love the boost of enthusiasm with your choice - unexpected, but in such a wonderful way!
