TVLine Mixtape

Arrow Playlist: The Ultimate Soundtrack to the CW Series


The Green Arrow may not have raised his voice in song during the Arrowverse’s musical episode, but that doesn’t mean the show doesn’t have some playlist-worthy tunes. Get ready for an Arrowthemed TVLine Mixtape.

An essential for Arroverse fans, this compilation features some of the best tunes from the DC show that started it all. This playlist contains songs from all six seasons (so, um, spoiler alert!) and also includes artists and album names just in case you want to store them in your quiver personal playlist.

Some of tracks made us laugh. Others brought tears to our eyes. A few even made us want to suit up ourselves. But we also want to hear from you. Take a listen and hit the comments with your favorite Arrow tracks.
