D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Captain America Returns Again!

djnew

Since Captain America: The Winter Soldier is still in theaters (and I still have more Captain America music to share) I’m going to continue my tribute to The Living Legend of World War II. And that means more classic comic book covers featuring everyone’s favorite kid sidekick, Bucky Barnes. No reason.

And while I’m at it, let’s include Batroc the Leaper and The Falcon, just because.

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, what are you wating for?

D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Captain America Breaks Records!

djnew

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a hit! It broke the record for a movie opening in April. And that segues nicely into this record. (See what I did there?) Yes, it’s another record about Captain America, the 93-year-old who doesn’t look a day over 90.

CA Winter Soldier poster

Once again we celebrate the star-spangled avenger with a song you probably haven’t heard before. And once again we present a gallery of classic comic covers that feature Bucky, everyone’s favorite sidekick. True blue and loyal to the end. Good ol’ Bucky! What ever became of him?

D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Captain America Springs Ahead!

djnew

Spring is here and it’s time for The Winter Soldier, the new Captain America film that just opened in theaters (check your local listings for show times). That means we have to interrupt our battle between Spider-Man and Batman over who has the most songs (Batman does), so we can pay tribute to the star-spangled avenger. Naturally we have a song to share that ties in with the film. It’s the theme song, which I know you’ll enjoy.

CA Winter Soldier.

To celebrate Captain America’s return to the silver screen we present this gallery of classic covers. Whatever happened to Bucky, anyway? Always liked that kid.

D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Spider-Man Strikes Back!

djnew

Last week our unbroken streak of Spider-Man songs was broken by Batman. This Tuesday, Spidey fights back! It’s a battle between these superstar super-heroes to see who has the most songs. (Batman does, but I’m not going to be the one to tell Spider-Man. Are you?)

Spider-Man yellow

Who will win this battle of the century? (Batman. Like I said.) Be here next Tuesday to see and hear what I have in store!

D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Jealous, Batman?

djnew

logo 1966_Batman

For the past several weeks we’ve been presenting songs related to Spider-Man, in order to prove my point which is that there sure are an awful lot of songs about Spider-Man! (We don’t have very lofty goals here, folks.) I’ve been saying how Batman is the clear winner, but Spidey is a close second.

Just so Batman doesn’t get jealous, let’s swing the spotlight onto the Caped Crusader and enjoy a classic bat-tune.

Batman band

Batman Big Band

As I’ve said many, many (many) times before, this is probably the most covered song in all of comicdom: the theme from the 1966 Batman TV show. This time we’re hearing a big band arrangement by the Brian Setzer Orchestra. Take it away, Brian!

D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: The Spider-Tunes Keep Coming!

djdavidb

As you undoubtedly know by now, I’ve proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that there are a heckuva lot of songs about Spider-Man. Did you think I was lying? By my count, Spidey is second only to Batman when it comes to having a ton of comics tunage. And now, another one! A song you’ve probably never heard and yet it’s a great little record. The Ray Wall Band gets the credit here.

Spider-Man yellow

If you thought I was done with my musical tribute to ol’ webhead, you’ve got another think coming. Be here next Tuesday for another Spider surprise.

D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Spider-Man Yadda Yadda Yadda

djnew

By now it’s all been said. There are nearly as many Spider-Man songs as there are Batman songs. Still not convinced? Check out this heavy metal version of the theme from the 1967 Spider-Man TV series.

And I’m not done yet! Tune in next Tuesday for another Spider-tune.

D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Spider-Man Re-Covered!

djnew

Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know that I have been spotlighting Spider-Man these past few weeks. The point I’m trying to make (are you paying attention?) is that there are oodles of songs about Spider-Man, perhaps almost as many as there are Batman songs. Like any good scientific theory it requires lots of research, rigorous testing, and plenty of hard work. Since I don’t have time for that, I’ll just share another song about Spider-Man.

Spidey on yellow 2

You may recall (back on December 11, 2007) that we discussed the connection between Peter Parker and The Ramones. Both are from Forest Hills in Queens, New York. Both are outcasts and misfits. And both overcame obstacles to become heroes! As far as I know, The Ramones were never bitten by radioactive spiders, but I can’t prove it didn’t happen.

ASM 24

Naturally, The Ramones covered the 1967 Spider-Man TV series theme (as heard here). And now their cover has been covered by Brats on the Beat. That just shows the staying power of this song. It even has a cover version of a cover version. Top that, Batman!

D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Yep, More Spider-Man!

djnew

For the umpteenth week in a row I’m shining the Comics Tunes spotlight on that ol’ web-slinger himself, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Why not?

Spidey on yellow 2

My thesis is simple, there are an awful lot of songs about Spider-Man, perhaps second only to Batman. Don’t believe me? Listen to this!

D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Spider-Man Again!

djnew

As I’ve been saying for the past few weeks, there are an awful lot of songs about Spider-Man. Don’t worry bat-fans, the Caped Crusader is still Number One! There are quite a number of songs about Charlie Brown and Snoopy, and Superman has his share, but from my research it’s Batman and Spider-Man that are at the top of the Comics Tunes list. Can someone prove me wrong?

Spidey on yellow 2

This week an original song about Spidey, not a cover of the TV show theme. Take it away, Katrina!
