Sci-fi’s Greatest Hits – Defenders of Justice

Summertime means fun, sun and blockbuster superhero popcorn movies. This year we have Iron Man, the Hulk, Indiana Jones, Hancock, Batman lighting up the screens. Here at the Lounge – we are doing our part to keep you in the zone this summer. This one will take you back to the good old days of getting up early on Saturday mornings to sit in front of the t.v. for half the day. Lots of cool tracks, like the 60's version of the Astroboy theme; Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet (which are sort of like cousins to each other); Underdog; Batman: The Animated Series (one of the most amazing shows ever. Period.); The Green Hornet with it's great rendition of "Flight of the Bumblebee" played by trumpeter-extraordinaire Al Hirt; the original Spiderman cartoon theme (which everyone likes better than the new one); The Tick with it's crazy, jazzy, scat theme; Knight Rider, which is awesome and unforgettable; Max Headroom, the late, great, short lived show that deserved a much better fate; and Quantum Leap. There are many more, some good, some so-so, all interesting choices (Mortal Kombat is one of those 'interesting' choices, as they aren't really defenders of justice. Oh well.) A few of the cuts are “recreations”, like The Flash theme and they still stand up well. All in all – the perfect blast for the summer movie season. POWER UP!
