EVERY SONG THAT HAS BEEN IN A SUICIDE SQUAD TRAILER
If there is a pattern here, please let us know.
- •An odd, moody cover of the 1968 Bee Gee's song "I Started a Joke"Robin Gibbs says this song was based on the sound an airplane makes, and that he accosted the pilot and forced him to land the plane so that he could write it. Accosting pilots and lying about it! Sounds like some kind of suicide squad, if you ask me.
- •Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"I actually respect this choice. It was my go-to in the American Idol PlayStation 3 game because it was very demanding, very long, and extremely manic. It is a great way to get everyone to leave so you can have the game to yourself. It makes sense for this trailer, because it fits perfectly with the feeling that this movie might be something you want to avoid. It also screams "Weird movie! Weird characters! Scary-ish?" pretty loudly, which has become DC Comics' quite transparent plan
- •A cover of Lesley Gore's 1963 feminist anthem "You Don't Own Me," sung by Australian singer Grace and featuring G-EazyWhat if Lesley Gore were alive and someone played this trailer for her and she croaked "What is this... some kind of... suicide squad?" and cracked everyone up? Of course she would not have watched the first two trailers, because she's Lesley Gore.
- •Sweet's "The Ballroom Blitz," best known for being sampled in a very aggressive Beastie Boys song, as well as soundtracking a pivotal scene of Daddy Day Care.Do you think Suicide Squad will be more like the chaos of a Beastie Boys music video, or the chaos of a family-friendly Eddie Murphy comedy? Man, I hope it's both.
