Collecting 75 – years worth of nostalgia together in a single set. ‘The Music Of DC Comics’ will most likely appeal to fans new and old.
The set includes soundtracks from the 1940’s through to the present day and has contributions from a number of composers.
The set gets off to a brilliant start with some narration from the 1940’s ‘Superman’ radio series and then follows through with Hans Zimmer’s ‘What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving the World?’ from the Superman reboot ‘Man Of Steel’.
We also get to hear the wonderfully magical ‘The Flying Sequence / Can You Read My Mind?’ (feat. Margot Kidder) – John Williams, which was one of those iconic moments from the first Christopher Reeves ‘Superman’ movie and in my opinion still the best.
Moving away from the ‘Superman’ theme. The set then takes us on a wonderful trip down memory lane with music from DC comics most popular property ‘Batman’. This journey begins with the soundtrack from the 1966 television series, which has you singing along and mouthing the sound effects and pumping the air with your fits as you go.
We also get Hans Zimmer’s ‘Fight Night’ theme from ‘Batman Vs Superman: Dawn Of Justice’ as well as Danny Elfman’s much loved soundtrack from the 1996 ‘Batman’ Series.
The best parts of this set of DC soundtracks is when it playfully goes back in time and provides other elements from the 60’s Batman show. Thing such as ‘Joker is Wild’ – The Sensational Guitars of Dan and Dale: Sun Ra and the Blues Project (1966) and the fantastic ‘Penquin’s Umbrella’.
You also get a few music elements from the ‘Superfriends’ before things move more toward the more contemporary DC soundtracks from the recent ‘Supergirl’ television series and ‘The Flash’ TV series. We even get the soundtrack from the 1990 television version of ‘The Flash’.
If you’re a fan of music and the superhero genre. Then you will not want to miss out on this set. Its literally a good hours worth of fun that will have you foot tapping, whistling and humming along to the various different television and movie soundtracks from 75 years worth of the DC Universe.
This set will be available as both a music download and CD version on 15 July and is well worth owning.
