    The Music of DC Comics: Volume 2

    • 19:11 on 13th Jul 2016
    • By Charlie Brigden

    While I’m not sure of the occasion – perhaps the rebirth of the DC comic universe and Batman V Superman – Watertower Music have seen fit to release a second volume of tunes from the DC universe spanning a wide range of eras from early serials to the aforementioned 2016 cinematic smackdown, although thankfully it’s not all that grim and includes several interesting tracks that may be seen as rarities.

    As you can imagine, there’s a fair amount of music from Batman and Superman, beginning with the new DCCU where we have the best track from Man of Steel (‘What Are You Going To Do When You Are Not Saving The World?’) and ‘Fight Night’, which comes from BVSDOJ (with the new “ultimate edition” cut now out I’m tempted to call it BVSDOJTUE). The Man of Steel track is as brilliant as it’s always been, but ‘Fight Night’ is pretty obnoxious and not a good fit for the album, although I’m not sure if anything form that score would be. There’s a track from The Dark Knight Rises as well, together with one from the new Gotham TV show.

    We also get the themes from both of the Superman and Batman WB animated series (the Danny Elfman theme for the latter) as well as the 60’s Neal Hefti Bat-theme and the intro to the 80’s Ruby-Spears Superman cartoon which has John Williams adapted by Ron Jones. Curiously, the track is taken straight from the show audio with the opening narration, whereas the FSM Superman Box had the theme music-only on their disc dedicated to the show. We get more Williams with ‘The Flying Sequence and Can You Read My Mind?’ and ‘Lex Luthor’s Lair’, and yes, the former does feature Margot Kidder’s love poem for the last son of Krypton.

    But it’s not all score, with ‘The Ballad of Batman’ from The Brave and the Bold cartoon, a fun western-influenced track and the Arthur Korb songs from the 60’s animated shows featuring the Justice League, as well as a trio of tracks from the “classic” album Batman and Robin: The Sensational Guitars of Dan and Dale by Sun Ra. There’s also a fair representation of music from the new DCTV era, with the themes from Supergirl, The Flash vs Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow. It’s a weird album that’s perhaps top-heavy in quality, but there are plenty of welcome additions, not least Mark Hamill singing “Jingle Bells/Batman smells” and the Charles Fox/Norman Gimbel Wonder Woman theme, and it’s nice to remember that DC can be fun occasionally.

    The Music of DC Comics: Volume 2 is released by Watertower Music on July 15
