Singin' in the Rain

In 1927 Hollywood, a silent film production company and cast make a difficult transition to sound.

Last season on The Flash, Barry revealed that his all-time favorite musical is Singin’ In The Rain, which starred Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor, and the late Debbie Reynolds. Most people around Barry’s age adore hit Broadway musicals such as RENT, Phantom of the Opera, or Les Miserables, but not the Scarlet Speedster. He has fond memories of Reynold’s famous flick because he used to watch it with his mother, so it holds a sentimental value for him.

Barry Allen's first appearance in Showcase #4, 1956, showed him reading a comic book featuring the original 1940s Flash. This inspired him to take the name Flash when he got his super powers. He soon discovered the other Flash wasn't fictional. but real person fighting crime on an alternate Earth. Grant Morrison's epic The Multiversity takes this up to 11: every alternate Earth appears as a comic in some other alternate Earth, the comics holding the key to saving the multiverse from evil entities.

A Wrinkle in Time

Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture.It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger."Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time. A Wrinkle in Time is soon to be a movie from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.This title has Common Core connections.Books by Madeleine L'EngleA Wrinkle in Time QuintetA Wrinkle in TimeA Wind in the DoorA Swiftly Tilting PlanetMany WatersAn Acceptable TimeA Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel by Madeleine L'Engle; adapted & illustrated by Hope LarsonIntergalactic P.S. 3 by Madeleine L'Engle; illustrated by Hope Larson: A standalone story set in the world of A Wrinkle in Time.The Austin Family ChroniclesMeet the Austins (Volume 1) The Moon by Night (Volume 2) The Young Unicorns (Volume 3)A Ring of Endless Light (Volume 4) A Newbery Honor book!Troubling a Star (Volume 5)The Polly O'Keefe booksThe Arm of the StarfishDragons in the WatersA House Like a LotusAnd Both Were YoungCamillaThe Joys of Love

A timeless (sorry, not sorry) classic about traveling through time and space to fight evil. Even if someone like Barry Allen has already read this, it deserves a reread.

Flashdance...What A Feeling - From "Flashdance"

Barry Allen
Barry Allen
Scientist, Superhero
Alright, we’re having a little fun with this last one, but Barry needs to let loose and cut some rug every now and again. Why not bust a move to some “Flashdance?” We love how Barry is still very much a kid at heart. Whether it’s singing karaoke, hanging out with friends, or just enjoying a run around the globe; Barry finds excitement in everything. Here’s hoping we’ll be seeing some more of that lighthearted Barry next season on the CW.

Back In Time

While Marty McFly might have something to say about us stealing his song, this one fits our list. When Barry Allen runs fast enough, he can actually bend the time-space continuum and time travel to another day, year, or era completely. It only makes Barry’s story more challenging and complex, but also exciting.

Speed

Judging from the title, you shouldn’t be surprised as to why this song would make our playlist. If the title alone wasn’t enough reason, let’s take a look at the lyrics. “Give me what I need. Yeah, white lightning! Let’s speed.” It’s in The Flash’s blood. He is lightning.

Iris

Barry Allen
Barry Allen
Scientist, Superhero
“And I don’t want the world to see me, ‘cause I don’t think that they’d understand.” We wanted to pay tribute to Barry’s one true love, and the woman who he longs to be with, despite the challenges that may lay in his way. Iris West is the girl who Barry grew up with, fell in love with, and vows to protect when he’s The Flash. When superhero duties get in the way, trying to maintain a relationship can get pretty difficult. Barry really needs to savor every moment with Iris, because Captain Cold or Gorilla Grodd could be stirring up trouble at any moment. “You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be, and I don’t wanna go home right now.”

Good Vibrations - Remastered

Barry Allen
Barry Allen
Scientist, Superhero
A brick wall isn’t a problem when you’re The Flash. You can just “phase” or vibrate your molecules through it. If you want to disguise your appearance or voice, vibration comes in handy again. It’s one of The Flash’s more overlooked powers, but also one of his handiest tools when making a getaway. “I’m picking up good vibrations.”

Speed of Sound

“All that noise, and all that sound. All those places that I have found.” The lyrics from Coldplay’s “Speed of Sound” perfectly summarize what life might be like for Barry as he continues to discover his new talents. Speed wasn’t always his gift, so the discovery and the complexity of it all pushes him to become a better, faster, stronger Flash.

Blurred Lines

When The Flash is running through Central City, saving the day, what do us everyday citizens see? A lightning strike? A streak? More like a couple of blurred lines, if you ask us. Enough reason for this song to make our list, in our opinion.

Jumpin' Jack Flash - Mono Version

Barry Allen
Barry Allen
Scientist, Superhero
“I was born in a cross-fire hurricane.” Not exact, but close. Technically, it was more like a freak lightning storm caused by a malfunction in the particle accelerator, but we’ll let The Rolling Stones have some liberty with the lyrics there. This is a great song for our The Flash playlist, since it not only has the word “flash” in the title, but also highlights the spirit of perseverance and staying in the fight. We all know that Barry Allen would never give up.

Life in the Fast Lane - 2013 Remaster

Barry Allen
Barry Allen
Scientist, Superhero
“He was a hard-headed man.” Barry doesn’t always make the wisest decisions on the battlefield, but you can rest assured that he’s hard-headed and won’t back down from a fight. Throw in the chorus line, “Life in the fast lane, surely make you lose your mind,” and you’ve got a great song to play as The Flash runs through Central City.
