I got to thinking about all the iconic themes from various DC media and how just hearing it would bring me back to moments in time.
- Batman 1989 theme: I was in school band at the time. The way the music would gradually grow louder, how exciting it was for us to play it. Plus we had a gong! Oh the gong was a big hit when we played for the younger kids even if it meant they each took a turn banging it. My ears still ring.
- Batman the Animated Series: yes another version of the theme from 1, but I can remember after school, sitting down excited to see another episode. I would sit there with my snack of sunflower seeds and watch raptly as characters I had never seen before came to life.
- Smallville: Somebody come save me! They treated Clark right as someone coming into their own with enough WB teen angst to keep him human. I watched this as I was older but I could not miss what happened. I get chills when I hear the theme and when they teased it during Elseworlds crossover as they approached the Kent farm.
What are your favorite themes and what memories go they bring up?
