name yr 2 fav songs about superheroes

at the moment mine are

the flamin lips - waitin for a superman (is it gettin heavy?)


AND
soofjan stevens - the man of metropolis steals our hearts





he hasn't dropped them / forgot them / or anything / it's just to heavy for superman to lift
only a steel man / can be a lover / if he had hands to / tremble all over


any mentions of Five for Fighting will result in immediate expulsion

Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me by U2! And before you say it's not really about a superhero, it just featured in a superhero movie, I'll have you know that it's about they themselves, the stars, rock stars are like superheroes, aloof and misunderstood and sort of minor boring deities.

Hmmm, stretching the definition beyond breaking point now... Mr November by the National. If this has to be limited to literal allusions to characters from the Marvel or DC menagerie of freaks, then I bow out.

Since someone already mentioned the R.E.M. track, honorable mention to...

The Ramones - Spider-Man

From the compilation, Saturday Morning Cartoons' Greatest Hits
