Awesome Music / Titans (2018)

No, 'Titans' is not a musical.

    Season 1 
  • "Alone" by Monogrenade runs during a scene where Dick is cleaning his Robin suit of blood. The song's lyrics combined with the "show don't tell" filming are meant to represent Dick's issues with violence, but also the character's taste in music, since he is the one playing the song on a vinyl.
  • "S.O.B." by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats plays when Rachel is searching for Dick and sounds quite happy, but there is a dissonance between the song's upbeat chorus and Rachel's situation when you realize she was on the run after her adoptive mother was murdered by a cult that is trying to capture her.
  • Kory has an entire soundtrack comprising the most catchy songs of The '70s; bonus points for being herself a fan of the era:
    • "Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel" by the Tavares Brothers plays during Kory's very first scene in the show, hinting at the fact she is an alien, which doesn't know due to her amnesia.
    • "Sunny" by Boney M. plays during a scene where Kory is beating some idiots, a fun, upbeat song that makes the action-packed scene very funny.

    Season 2 
  • "Burn It to the Ground" by NICKELBACK makes it all the more ironic when Dr. Light is killed by Deathstroke, after he hyped himself up in a car.
  • "I Just Want To Make Love To You" by Etta James is a cabaret song that runs when Dick has a hallucination of Bruce Wayne doing a dance very reminiscent of Batman's camp portrayal from Batman (1966).
  • Rose chooses "Party Monster" by The Weeknd to try to make Jason forget a little bit of his PTSD. Then things quickly become intimate between the two.
  • Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D major becomes incredibly disturbing when it's played while CADMUS is brainwashing Gar into seeing a scientist as Rachel, then mauling said scientist.


How well does it match the trope?
