Threesome: Superman’s songs

August 13, 2008

Inspired by a pub trivia question about the Crash Test Dummies song, as well as an NPR story on Superman’s birthplace (no, not Krypton – Cleveland, OH), here are a trio of songs about the Man of Steel. Three plus a bonus, actually – you can choose between Laurie Anderson’s cerebral version of ‘O Superman’ or the dancefloor-electronica M.A.N.D.Y. version.

MP3: The Flaming Lips – Waitin’ for a Superman (more Flaming Lips)

MP3: Sufjan Stevens – The Man of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts (more Sufjan Stevens)

MP3: Laurie Anderson – O Superman (more Laurie Anderson)

MP3: M.A.N.D.Y. vs. Booka Shade feat. Laurie Anderson – O Superman (more M.A.N.D.Y.)
