Secrets Liars & Spies – Leslie Hudson

Welcome to The Redhead League
We’re loosely a collective of
The best and brightest redheads far and wide
Personal objective and collaborative fire
Are the values we espouse, come on inside 

“Secrets Liars & Spies” by Leslie Hudson, from her concept album “The Redhead League.” Leslie explains in the album description:

The Redhead League is a concept album based on 9 female redheaded comic book characters: Red Sonja, Medusa, Teela, Jean Grey, Mary Jane Watson, Scarlett, Poison Ivy, April O’Neil & Black Widow.

They’re not superheroes or supervillains. They’re passionate, powerful and occasionally poisonous so don’t piss them off. They’ve got swords and guns and prehensile hair, telekinesis and martial arts expertise, lipstick lips and latex, and they don’t mind getting their hands dirty.

Lyrics available on Bandcamp.

Gotham on the Fritz – waiting4codot

waiting4codot:

Have you seen the ne’er-to-do, locked up in ‘Ark Avenue’,
On that famous thoroughfare, with some toxin in the air,
High hats and Arrow collars, green spats and lots of dollars,
Spending every dime, on a wonderful crime!

If you’re blue and you don’t know where to go to,
Why don’t you go where chaos sits,
Gotham on the fritz!

Femme fatales who wear a day coat, two-faced men,
Or leather bound coats, perfect fits,
Gotham on the fritz!

Dressed up like a winged flying sleuther,
Trying hard to look like Ol’ Lex Luthor (super duper),
Come let’s mix where Cobblepots walk with their sticks,
Or umbrellas in their mitts.
Gotham on the fritz!

Kitty cats all wear a diamond choker,
Harley walking with the man who broke her (what a joker),
You’ll declare it’s simply insane to be there,
And cower as they battle wits,
Gotham on the fritz!

(I was bored. This happened. Deal with it.)

The Ballad of Barry Allen – Eben Brooks

And I’ll be there before you know it
I’ll be gone before you see me
And do you think you can imagine
Anything so lonely
And I know you’d really like me
But I never stick around
Because time keeps dragging on

“The Ballad of Barry Allen,” a song about the downsides of being a speedster. Original song by Jim’s Big Ego, performed here by Eben Brooks.

Purple and Yellow – Adam WarRock

Had a chance to finally read and catch up with Cameron Stewart & Brendan Fletchre’s new Batgirl title for DC Comics. Besides the fact that Stewart & Babs Tarr’s art is a joy to look at, it’s a great title that harkens back to any number of great comics that do what they do best: show what it means to be a young person of exceptional and at times, ostracizing and frustrating circumstances. If you haven’t checked it out yet, then you should take a second and give it a chance. Get Volume 1 here.

I mean, I know everyone wants me to do more DC comic songs. So here you go.

The New 52 Song – axonsandsynapses

axonsandsynapses:

To be sung to the tune of The M.T.A. Song

Let me tell you the story of a Batgirl named Steph’nie
And the editors of ol’ DC
They ended her adventures, they cancelled her series
For Cataclysmic Crisis Part 3

Well, did she ever return?
No she never returned
And her fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
She’s the hero who never returned

Cassandra was fast and Cassandra was bright
She made Batgirl her very own
But then the Flash exploded the universe (again)
And our beloved Cassandra is gone

‘Cause did she ever return?
No she never returned
And her fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
She’s the hero who never returned

Green Arrow – Ollie Queen- he had a son
His name was Connor Hawke
He took his father’s mantle, he did it proud
But the editors, they forgot

And did he ever return?
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
He’s the hero who never returned

Well Speedy, he grew up, his sidekick days behind him
And then Mia fought her way on scene
She learned to wield that bow, she owned that title
Made “Team Arrow” truly a team

But did she ever return?
No, she never returned
And her fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
She’s the hero who never returned

Now Wally West, he was the Flash’s sidekick
Was in the Titans from day number one
Loved as a kid, loved more as a hero
But they decided his days were done

‘Cause did he ever return?
No he never returned
And his fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
He’s the hero who never returned

Donna Troy, well her past is tricky
And on her story nobody agrees
But she still shone bright as the first Girl Wonder
But it wasn’t enough for ol’ DC

And she never returned
No she never returned
Her fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
She’s the hero who never returned

Oh no they never returned
No they never returned
And their fate is still unlearned
Stuck forever in continuity limbo
They’re the heroes that never returned

Note: Yes, I’m aware that Steph is currently making her reappearance in Batman Eternal. She was just the easiest character to begin with.

Also, I’m aware that I’m missing characters. Feel free to add verses if you so desire.
