Experience The Music of DC Comics: 75th Anniversary...

dccdart There aren’t many things I love as much – or more – than comics, aside from my friends and family. Music is one of those things. Whether it’s discovering a new artist and wearing out their album, catching a show in the city or shuffling through my own music archives to find that perfect track for a mix CD, music is something that’s constantly on my mind. If you’re foolish enough to follow me on Twitter, you know this. Heck, I’m probably listening to some music right now. So, the idea of mixing my two passions – comics and music – together not only sounds good on paper, but in reality. DC Comics has produced a number of amazing books, televisions series, cartoons and more over the last 75 years. But never before have all the essential sounds and songs from these shows been collected in one place. Well, now they have. It starts in 1941, with the theme to the classic Fleischer Superman cartoons and moves through the years, including shows and movies like BATMAN, THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, LOIS & CLARK, BATMAN BEYOND, SMALLVILLE, THE BATMAN and a ton more, all on one compact disc – with 21 of the 31 tracks available for the first time ever. The collection, which hits stores later this year, is a must-buy for any fan of DC Comics and it’s various television, film and cartoon interpretations. Scroll down for the track listing and album art. I know I’ll be popping my copy in once it arrives. The Music of DC Comics: 75th Anniversary Collection 1.
