But even more than that, a theme song needs time and repetition in order to stick. Wonder Woman's theme had the advantage of being not only musically good but distinctly different from just about every earlier superhero theme, and then plastered all over the trailers for the movie, but it's probably at the minimum level of exposure for iconic music.
I actually liked the score for Aquaman more than for Wonder Woman, but the main WW theme was a lot more memorable and yeah catchy for me. I found the Aquaman score kind of unique and very fitting. It really felt like music for the ocean life and also somewhat alien. Like from another world.
