Pop Music Super Heroes Set 2

Yesterday we began the exploration on super-heroes in pop music. Today we continue that with a focus on the hero that started it all; Superman! It's not surprising that this man from Krypton has iconic status and is almost the go-to figure when looking for that all-encompassing super-heroic image with him being the first man in tights, an outsider, an alien, powerful and invulnerable yet isolated and alone.

Yesterday, Donovan showed up with his Supergirl song and today he's here with Sunshine Superman featuring both Superman and the Green Lantern

Next up we have Jim Croce with "You Don't Mess Around With Jim" featuring Superman and the Lone Ranger.

REM comes up next with "I Am Superman" which is actually a cover from a 1969 band called the Clique.

Finally we have The Spindoctors with Jimmy Olsen's Blues (A Pocketful Of Kryptonite).

Check out set one and set three here.
