My choice is the theme song for Doom Patrol - it’s the most recent I’ve come to really like. :slight_smile:

“What Are You Going to Do When You Are Not Saving the World?” from Man of Steel. This might be my favorite single track from Hans Zimmer. I absolutely love how it keeps building up until it completely explodes at the end. It’s just a perfect theme for Cavill’s Superman

Ooh, we just started November, but gifts are already being given, I see - thanks for helping me add more to the list, everyone! :slight_smile: I’m stopping in to let you know that you can also attach video of your song to your comments, too, so if interested in doing so, please do! Going to edit my post to make the adjustment now.

OK, come on. Superman Theme, John Williams.

I mean, Danny Elfman’s Batman theme is great, and honestly the Superman themes from the Fleischer shorts and STAS are almost as good as the Williams one, but… come on.

Very underrated: Li’l Romeo’s Static Shock theme.

“Criminals, get twisted — this super hero gifted!”

Also, I really love the surf rocky anthem of later seasons of The Batman.

Wait! Actually! Hang on! I want a do-over! Because somebody else is probably going to get Williams-Superman for me, I’m going more off the beaten path:


It’s completely ridiculous but also… kind of accurate?

The 1960’s Batman theme. Still iconic to this day.

Zimmer’s The Dark Knight soundtrack.

It’s a tie between that classic Superman, Batman tas, and Batman beyond. Though I do like the Titans OP and would love to hear an extended or full version.

Awww maaaaan. As much as I’m a Bats girl, I think it’s gotta be Williams’ Superman theme. It evokes so many memories and emotions from when I tiny enough to wear a pillowcase as a cape.

It’s got to be Remy Zero’s iconic “Save Me,” from Smallville. To this day, I can’t hear that song without smiling and reminiscing about the CW show that really started it all.
