American Pie by Don McLean
“Now for ten years we’ve been on our own

And moss grows fat on a rollin’ stone
But that’s not how it used to be
When the jester sang for the king and queen
In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
And a voice that came from you and me

Oh, and while the king was looking down
The jester stole his thorny crown
The courtroom was adjourned
No verdict was returned”


Tragic Kingdom by No Doubt
“But now it’s written in stone
The king has been overthrown
By jesterly fools”

Clown Dream by Danny Elfman (Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure)
Danny Elfman does such a wonderful job at circus sounding music. :D

Bolero from Moulin Rouge
I fell in love with this song within the first ten seconds of it playing when I first saw Moulin Rouge in the theaters twelve years ago.  It has been one of my favorites ever since.

Say That We’re Sweethearts Again by Virginia O’Brien
The headliner for this post.  If the song itself does not scream of me and my puddin’, then maybe you need a little refresher course on that time I teamed up with The Bats.

The Court of Miracles by The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Anything Hunchback of Notre Dame is pretty self explanatory.  The whole movie is just jam packed with gypsies and fools, I love it!


Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend by Moulin Rogue Soundtrack
Several of the songs from Moulin Rogue could probably make my list, but I like this one.  Why?  Because it is about diamonds (of course I am thinking of the shape rather than the stone, but those are nice, too).


Il Mio Pensiero by Ligabue
Such a pretty song, I heard it while I was traveling overseas when Mr. J. was locked away in Arkham one time (while the clowns away….).  I love the imagery of the video and the old circus theme with the tumblers and the girl on the horse.


23 Bears by Circus Contraption
This song just has a very circus feel, and the name of the band does not hurt this image.


Red and Black by Les Miserables Soundtrack

This one is probably the one that has the most people going “WHAT?!”  But think about it….Red….Black….it’s all about my colors!

Jaded by Aerosmith
This song makes the list just for the video, I remember the very first time I saw it, I thought: “I can do that!  I want to be in this video!”

Baby Elephant Walk by Henry Mancini
Because baby elephants are adorable, and this is a classic circus-type song.

Make ‘em Laugh by Singing in the Rain Soundtrack
One of my favorite movies to watch when I am blue is Singing in the Rain, and Donald O’Connor did such a wonderful job with this song.  Of course, fools, jesters, clowns, harlequins alike, all want to make ‘em laugh.

The Riddler by Method Man
This one is for our buddy The Riddler…at least I think he is currently our buddy…are we on the outs again?

Pink Elephants on Parade by Dumbo
MORE ELEPHANTS!  I amaze (or frighten) my friends when they realize I can sing this entire song….complete with voices.

Mad Love

Mad Love
Harley:  Yes, I admit it.  As unprofessional as it sounds, I had fallen in love with my patient.  Pretty crazy, huh?
Joker:  Not at all.  As a dedicated, career-oriented young woman, you felt the need to abstain from amusement and fun.  It’s only natural you’d be attracted to a man who could make you laugh again.
Harley:  I knew you’d understand!

Harley Quinn Playlist: Part I

I know I have been pretty quiet, but things have been slow around here.  Gotham City gets pretty cold in the winter, and I am much more a beachbunny than a snowbunny (leave the cold to Mr. Freeze-pop…YUCK!).

We are quickly approaching peak crime season though, and I love to rev myself up with some great music.  There are a lot of songs that really appeal to my harlequin nature, whether it be for the sound of the music, a line in the song, or even just the theme of the music video that I associate with the song.  Here is the first set of songs!

 

Batdance by Prince
I cannot find a video of this song due to copyright issues, but if you do not know this song, you need to find it now.  It is off the soundtrack to the 1989 Batman movie, which featured my puddin’ (although he was chasing after that horrible Vicky Vale….see where that got him).  Anyhow, you will here Mr. J. a lot in the song, including one of his favorite sayings: “Ever dance with the devil in the pale moon light?”

 

Topsy Turvy by The Hunchback of Notre Dame

This one should be pretty self-explanatory, a song about fools!  *dances along*

 

Madness by Muse

This is a relatively new song, only about five months old, but I just recently discovered it and I LOVE it.  It may or may not be obvious why it is included on this list, so for those of you who do not get it, the title is Madness.  Seriously….I listen to this song and immediately picture me and my puddin.’

 

Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite by The Beatles (Across the Universe Version)

The original version is just as good vocally, but I love the visuals of the Across the Universe version.  Eddie Izzard is very entertaining.  The song is very circus oriented.

 

Poison Ivy by Meshell Ndegeocello

A song about my bestest friend, Red.  Also from one of the Batman movies (why does he get all the movies?): Batman and Robin.  Opinions of the movie aside, this is just for the song, and I think it fits Red pretty well.

 

That is all for now.  Maybe I will do another five each week until it is time to get into some serious activity.  I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do!  And please, if you know of any songs you think I will like, leave a comment and let me know!
