Muselist No. 79: Anniversary #

Muselist LogoMusic has always come hand-in-hand with putting together each issue of the National Pasquinade, inspiring the content and creation. Hell, “muse” is even part of the word!

What follows here are some tunes to inspire myself and the other writers and artists during the creation of the upcoming Anniversary #. Maybe they’ll also inspire you to create and submit your own comic masterpiece. Submissions can be emailed to us at This is a special issue and a special theme with some rules (nothing too difficult, I assure you), so please read through our Submissions page, and devour a recent issue or two, before submitting, so that you have some idea of what we’re looking for.

Additionally, Wayne Tuttle submitted a Muselist for this issue before realizing that it was supposed to follow the issue theme. No worries, though. I wanted to include it here anyway, since this issue is kind of a mixed bag of “former” themes. Here’s a link to the Spotify playlist for this one.
