Music that makes you think on ninja turtles?

Is there any music that whenever you hear it, it makes you think of ninja turtles? Such as songs that you heard all the time in the period when a new episode of any TMNT cartoon aired?

I was watching 2k3 season 3 episode 20 "Across the Universe" and my father
suddenly turned ACDCs "Highway to hell" on.

Thanks to him, everytime Raphael drives a bike this song appear in my mind.

"The Riddle" (both song and album) by Nik Kershaw. Reason: I bought a tape of the album while I was an arcade game repairman, and guess which was the most popular one at the time? I did investigate the show and Mirage comic series at the time, and two sort of melded.

Oh, man. You really asked the right question for me. Get ready for some free-associative answers. I usually read things with music, including comics, so I've ended up with some albums pretty firmly rooted in my memory as being paired with certain books.

I don't even know how to explain this one, but for around six years now, Radiohead's "15 Step" has always made me think of "City at War" from the comics:



And "Bodysnatchers" from the same album of its climactic fight against the Foot Elite:



Really, most of that album. Again, no real connection other than thinking it fits tonally, I suppose. (Actually, maybe a little lyrical connection on the first one.)

Oh, also "Weird Fishes" for the entire Mirage series:



Finally, Animal Collective's "I Think I Can" evokes Turles for me, particularly Turtles Forever, as well. Maybe because they came out around the same time? And, again, I think they're a weirdly nice tonal fit:



Death in Vegas' The Contino Sessions album is my go-to reading soundtrack for Vol. 4. Particularly the track "Dirge," which has a beat almost reminiscent of the 1987 theme song, but obviously far more downbeat and strange.

Battles' Mirrored album is similarly my reading soundtrack for the early TMNT Adventures material.

So ... no other takers or people with interesting associations for this?

This could've been a fun thread. Do other people not listen to music when they read?

Aside from the themes, background music, & soundtracks, which I've always loved, including of course Vanilla Ice's Ninja Rap & ZZ Top's Can't Stop Rockin, I guess I never really associated the turtles with any music I enjoy. Since I can picture the turtles more as dancers than singers, I suppose the disco/dance genres are the best fit for them.

Giving this thread a bump 'cause of this-


It strongly evokes the first live action movie for me. Feels like something that would've been in the flick itself if not in a trailer or something.
