Yesterday was National Superhero Day. We love Superheroes at our Griffiths Music Studio. Adam is the resident expert around here so I had him compile a list of 10 Superhero Themes you'll be humming for the rest of the day.
And in no particular order:
1. X-Men Cartoon Theme- Ah the good ol' days of superhero cartoons. I remember watching these after school with my brother.
2. X-Men movies- Let's not give all the X-Men glory to the animated series. (Composer for X-Men 1 is Michael Kamen)
3. Nanananananana BATMAN!- You're welcome.
4. Tim Burton Batman- You know this one is iconic as well. And we have Danny Elfman to thank for it!
5. Dark Knight Trilogy- So much good batman music! This theme is courtesy of Hans Zimmer.
6. The Incredibles- Let's come out of the darkness and enjoy a superhero theme that might not have immediately jumped to your mind. But you know it belongs on this list and so does its' composer, Michael Giacchino.
7. Spider-Man- Our niece LOVES Spider-Man! And with such a catchy theme song, who can blame her?
8. Spider-Man Movie- Regardless of your feelings about the Spiderman movies, but the theme music is pretty good. But Danny Elfman has had some practice with superhero themes.
9. The Avengers- I have a friend who listens to this music while she runs. And who can blame her? It makes me feel like a superhero too. Well done composer Alan Silvestri.
10. Superman- The King of Movie Themes, John Williams, is a good option for topping off our list.
Man, that's some good music! Makes me want to get out there and fight crime! If you walk around with any of these stuck in your head today, well, you could definitely do worse.
Leave a comment and let us know what other Superhero themes you love! Obviously this isn't a comprehensive list!
We'd also like to leave you with an honorable mention...because childhood nostalgia....
