This Week’s Theme:
What Songs Make Up Your Birds of Prey Playlist?

Speaking of 2020, with a new year comes a list of new blockbuster releases to look forward to, one of which we’ll be highlighting for this week’s theme! Are you looking forward to Birds of Prey as much as we are? The trailer has us hyped and excited, but for me, it also brought to mind songs that’d make great background music for the scenes they gave us a glimpse of.

What about you? Know of any you’ve heard elsewhere that’d be perfect for movie like this? Let us know what comes to mind below! Since films typically have both instrumental scores (OST), along with accompanying vocal songs with lyrics, either type is acceptable. :slight_smile:

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!

Since I love a good movie with a full crew in tow, I originally considered a Diplo song, but since I also like the “I’M the one they should be scared of” concept of rising in status and wanting to leave a lasting impression on her surroundings (as well as those unfortunate enough to be occupying that space. :stuck_out_tongue:), I went with NF’s “Grindin’” for its overall feel. If I mute the trailer and play this behind it, I can especially imagine that song’s instrumental intro being used during one of the scenes where the crew walks in formation together. Some notable lyrics:

:notes: Yeah, what is you running for?
They should be running from ME! :notes:

The first to come to my mind is from Birds of prey TV show. :slightly_smiling_face:

That’s My Girl - Fifth Harmony

Yay girl bands!

Sorry if I pick really obscure bands sometimes but it’s just what’s in my musics and it really does fit the theme, or at least to me it does. I picked this song because it reminds me of Harley and she’s the biggest parts in the trailers. She’s crazy.

Break Your Mind - The Darts (US)

@Reaganfan78 - Ah ha, you’ve unleashed all the nostalgia feels already! Was always a fan of that on its own as a pretty catchy song in and of itself, but indeed, the BoP connection makes it perfect for this. A great choice as always! :slight_smile:

@arkhamassassin - Recommendations like that are what tell me it’s been much too long since I’ve heard a Fifth Harmony song. I love how it fits with the crews using teamwork concept. The video’s especially nice in showing how no day’s a boring one for them, and you’ve made me join in with @seitan in exclaiming: “Yay girl bands!” :stuck_out_tongue:

@seitan - Please, no need to apologize for picking obscure bands. Those are often my favorites when it come to trying to find new music to listen to, so the more obscure, the better. Besides, you’re right about that one and its strangely upbeat declaration of, “I’ll break your mind!” - alas, bright colors and lethal threats is the exact feeling I get from the BoP trailer, too, so to say it’s well-suited is an understatement. :slight_smile:

Another awesome thread, @MissInkBlot! I’m so excited to comment on this one because I’m currently reading the Birds of Prey series! The two songs that immediately came to mind are:

Dangerous by Big Data (featuring Joywave)

Kill of the Night by Gin Wigmore

After seeing the new trailer just now, one song that comes to my mind for the new movie is ‘Firework’ by Katy Perry! :slightly_smiling_face:

@KeyFamily - Alas, we’re on the same wavelength, and I love it! :partying_face: When that happens, you know it’s a sign of good things to come… and in this case, a double dose of music to our ears!

Thank you for sharing them! It was my first time hearing Big Data, but you did exactly what you did last week with “Kill of the Night,” (I always get that narrowed eye stare that Fry from Futurama gets, and my mind goes into an, “I’ve heard this somewhere before. but… ohhh, I remember, now!” :hushed: journey toward epiphany, lol). They both have a such a gritty heaviness to them, that, as one of the comments on those videos says, makes them addictive - definitely songs to put on repeat, and I might have to look for their guitar tabs, too. :stuck_out_tongue:

@Reaganfan78 - Ooh, are you talking about the TV spot they did for New Year’s, or another one? If the one I mentioned, I know what you mean! It’s so well done, isn’t it? And it really does set the stage for a fantabulous New Year’s. :wink: Side note: Typing out “fantabulous” has me humming the “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” song, now, too, lol,

Edit: Actually, noo, I just caught up on seeing the new one. I was missing out! Really liked their choice of background songs for it, but I can see “Firework” doing just as well over it, for sure! :slight_smile:

Awesome! Thank you, @MissInkBlot! I could picture Black Canary starting a mission or on her “off day” (never happens) cruising to the tunes. Love the Futurama reference - too funny! :laughing: I’ve had them both on repeat since I selected them for the thread.

Very cool that you play guitar!

@KeyFamily - Ahh, that gif! I never get tired of seeing it :stuck_out_tongue: Though… “play” isn’t the way my family would phrase it (more like, “please, spare our ears further torture!” hehe). But, you’re always welcome, any time! I’m just excited you all find songs that match characters so well - everyone’s been so good at it that I really need to sharpen my skills by comparison. :wink:

@dago-mage - Wow, with a list like that, your post must be a continuation of the wonderful Gift Exchange Party that was going on! Thank you for the great suggestions, and for being so specific in detailing which character you’re dedicating each to, @dago-mage! I’m adding yours to the list now, but do tell, do you have a favorite among those on the list? :slight_smile:

Honestly, I thought of the character & what best applied. Drop Dead Legs & that whole 1984 Van Halen album is a favorite. Huge Lauper fan. 5 octave voice & one of my favorite voices ever. I’m all over the map with music. I like everything that predated me thru everything I grew up on. Not a genre that I don’t dabble in. Thank u for the compliments. Means a lot to me.

Aw, you’re most welcome! I’m all over the place in music, too, so I really did appreciate the range you shared (“Not a genre that I don’t dabble in” …I might have to steal that lol :stuck_out_tongue:), and hearing about your and the other Mixers’ favorites makes Mixtape Monday all the better an experience.

Also, to your other post in the “New to App” thread, you’re so right, we hadn’t seen you for a little while; in light of that, sending a happy hello and welcome back to the forum to you, in return! If you end up posting to this week’s theme, looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this week’s Mixtape Monday! :slight_smile:

That’s no problem at all. I finally got it working. I’m so bad with tech, actually I need to stop saying that. I’m actually crazy innately good with tech. Social Media is where I’m clueless. Thank u so much for the welcome back. I missed chatting with u all. I stumbled on this post, luckily, cuz I love it. Now that I have it bookmarked I will try to do em all. Besides the glitches everything that goes wrong on here is my fault. You never have to apologize to me, but I appreciate the notification of what was behind it. I was like, I know I’m bad at this but how did I become a new user, lol. I was trying to show @DakuQuinn my shrine. She said send me a link, I said I will do my best. I honestly don’t know how I ended up getting it to her but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a link. I’m still learning how to navigate the boards with this format. I love it tho. If I miss out on certain ones it’s only b/c I haven’t found it yet. I feel so bad. I’m always respectful on here & it’s not an act. It wasn’t anything crazy. I just passed a board to congratulate the users who won that contest for their own show. I didn’t even know about it, so I wasn’t upset. I watched that Andrea Romano DC daily & she’s one of my biggest heroes. I was one of the 1st ones to post on ask a question. I even gave a compliment & it didn’t even say to. I put her as top 5 all time favorite voiceover actors like a year ago. I got 0 likes & nobody else mentioned her. I said I know she’s a voice director but she does voices too. The entire interview was perfect for my question. Then they said we’re gonna read some compliments from DCU members & I was thinking yes. I gave her a great one & the post said ask a question so I was for sure I’d get one in. It killed me to watch a hero get so emotional & appreciative of all these posts & not be a part of it. I said every person I nominated for community hero got it & not one of them gave me a single vote or recommendation back. It was all of us from day one that we’re on here & literally used as an example of the criteria necessary to get nominated. So I nominated all of them as common sense would dictate & not one person thought maybe I should nominate him as well. They did the questions & mine fit absolutely perfect. I get passed over again & people I nominated got there questions asked. I was thinking, why would people who already got the title & the gift bags also be the ones who get selected every time there’s one of these. Nobody gave any likes when I listed her a yr ago & nobody else mentioned her. Now, all of a sudden, everyone’s loved her forever? I’ve never won a single thing or been chosen for any interviews. I’ve checked that box on every contest I’ve ever entered & still have yet to receive the emails & updates I’m supposed to get automatically when I signed up. My friend got it for me for my bday cuz tbh, I’m poor. He said he received a bag of gifts etc. for signing up. So it ran out & I renewed it & I haven’t received anything including the emails & updates I’ve checked the box on for a yr & a half. Please understand I’m just telling u what I posted cuz I feel really bad. I’m not aiming this at u or anyone else I’m just telling u what I posted under extremely bad judgment. I said that every person I nominated absolutely deserved my vote. I apologized to DanTheMan1 for hijacking his post & venting. I don’t think he accepts it & I don’t blame him. Bottom line I’m beyond sorry & embarrassed & not to play victim but I think just not having the means to live or survive financially just heightened everything. I’m sorry I wrote u a novel. I promise u I’ll never let anything even close to that happen ever again. I’m the most laid back person in the world. My skin is extremely thick. I misrepresented who I am & it’s shameful & for sure reeks of envy, but it was just one day, one moment that I couldn’t suck it up & face the position I put myself in. God I’m sorry I unpacked all of this on you. Scouts honor I’ll be the kindest person on here for as long as I’m in this community.

Pop Evil - Birds of Prey song off their self titled 2018 album. This song fits cause as lyrics say some are impressed- black canary, batgirl, question and some are misfits like Harley Quinn. There is a diversity in the background of characters on the team. They feed off their own blood line. Batgirl gains some of her resources, knowledge, experience from the Batman. Harley Quinn from joker. Their wings are clipped, fell from grace, they are on their own now no joker or batman to stop them from being who they are. They feed off the weak- being the criminals and scum under black masks employ- they revel for the fight - life’s an open door, stays wide open. Many new possibilities. And its possible to bring change, especially for Harley Quinn’s character as she has never worked with hero hero’s like this before.

@dago-mage - Yay! I’m happy to hear you’re going to try to participate in all of the MTM threads. We’re happy to have you as a member of the DC Family, so the more, the merrier! :slight_smile: No worries about your prior posts - completely understand, though if you ever end up needing tech help, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the mods using the “Need to Contact the Mods?” button on the right side of main forum pages. We’re always happy to give a helping hand when needed! As for things going on in life in general, I hope the new year makes for improvements in all areas there. The past few years seem to have been pretty tough, but there’s always up from wherever we are, so I think things will get better in time. :slight_smile:

@nu52 - Ohh, you’re so right! How could I forget? Thank you so much for that - that lovely tune was added to the list, post haste! :wink:

@Nok - Fantastic choice (but this, we’ve come to expect anyway! :slight_smile: ) - not only with the perfect choice of title, of course, but after going through the rest of the lyrics, it applies well in so many ways. Songs with that general sound have always ended up on my favorites list, so that one’s not only added to the BoP list we created, but my “repeat” list, too. Thank you so much for sharing it!
