Episode 14:

Owing to the fact that Detective Comics #408 and #409 took place in Madrid, I went for a Spanish-feeling song. Listen and enjoy the sounds of Rodrigo y Gabriela's "Diablo Rojo"

The segue music is "My Boyfriend's Back" by The Angels!

Episode 13:

What a fantastic musical opportunity I had this month! First, I used The Beatles "Let it Be" as the intro music. This is not only in celebration of John Lennon's 70th birthday, but also because the song really fits the hippy-ish feel of the Detective Comics reviewed in this issue.

The segue music is Michael Jackson's "Thriller." What better way to celebrate the month of Halloween and Batgirl #14?!

Episode 12:

The intro music is "I Hate Myself for Loving You" by Joan Jett. I think that this really represents Veda's hate/love for Billy Warlock.

The segue music is "Trust Me" by Janis Joplin. Here we have the theme song for the Batgirl/Det. Nick relationship in Batgirl #13.

I'm happy that this episode uses some vintage music. I will try to do this more often!

Episode 11:

The intro (once again changed) features "First Time" by Lifehouse. This best represents the first partnership between Batgirl and Robin.

The segue music is "What If This Storm Ends" by Snow Patrol, a good song describing the resolution of the "Flood" arc in Batgirl.

Episode 10: Interview with Bryan Q. Miller

On a suggestion from a friend of the podcast, Jeffrey, the opening music is Dessa's "Children's Work." Dessa's work is very eclectic but her verses are poetic. I highly recommend checking out this artist!

Episode 9: Wham, Bam, Thank-you M'am Special

"Dire Wolf" by Grateful Dead is the Intro music, attempting to channel the tone of the Detective Comics issues that I review.

As the segue music, "Dreams" by The Cranberries is representative of the dream-like sequence of Babs in the initial scene of Batgirl #11.

Episode 8:

There are several music bits in this episode...okay, perhaps not several but three!

The intro music is "Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)" by Beyonce, a sure theme to Batman #214.

"Rude Boy" by Rhianna featuring Viz Major finds its way'll see why!

Finally, "The Boys Are Back In Town" by Thin Lizzy is the segue music in celebration of the return of the Birds!

Episode 7.5: The Wonder Woman Show:

Besides the obvious original intro rap by Bubba Moose, this episode contains the Wonder Woman Season 1 Intro.

The outro music is "She's So High" by Tal Bachman.

Episode 7:

The intro music is "Paper Planes" by MIA. I got the idea for using this song after reading Adventure Comics #381.

The transition music is "No Rain" by Blind Melon. Such a fitting song to begin an arc called "The Flood!"

The outro music is a song from an artist I've recently become fond of, "Dreams" by Brandi Carlile. A fitting end that matches a great story in Brave and the Bold #33.

Episode 6:

As there was a lot of death, sickness, and overall sadness in this episode, I tried to pick music that reflected all of that.

The intro music Armor for Sleep's The Truth About Heaven

The segue music is Sixx: A.M.'s Life is Beautiful

The closing music is The Wreckers' The Good Kind

Episode 5:

This is a song that my friend Christine and I often listened to while racing through town in her Audi. I also thought it was an especially poignant song since Babs just needs to stick it to the world after this set of issues!

A classic! I thought of this song for an intermission while reading Brave and the Bold #78...Batgirl and Wonder Woman-karaoke, anyone?

Episode 4:

This episode features "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescence. This was wisely recommended by my special guest, Kevin Cushing. As he so eloquently told me, it is a strong song about origins and it really fits not only Batgirl: Year One, but the character of Barbara Gordon as well!

Episode 3:

The intro music for this episode is "What is This Feeling?" sung by the Original Broadway Cast of Wicked (leads played by Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenowith). This really gets at the animosity and angry felt throughout the issues reviewed.

I'm not sure if I'll continue doing intermissions, but I knew this episode was going to be a longer episode so I decided to create a break. One of my favorite "Hero" songs is by the Foo Fighters, "My Hero" and I thought it gave some flavor to the show.

Episode 2:

The opening music for Episode 2 is "Just a Girl" by No Doubt. This rock song possibly gets to the frustrations of Barbara as she competes with the boys!
