YOUR MISSION, SHOULD YOU ACCEPT IT…
So I’m in the market for new music, but because it’s too damn easy to download stuff, and JBs makes hunting shelves an exercise in mundanity, I’m forced to hunt by theme rather than artist or style.
Today’s mission: songs about; starring; titled after; or just damn well written by– superheroes.
Drop your ideas in the comments. If you’re reading this via LJ feed, remember- if you comment via LJ, I won’t get it, so you’ll need to come to the blog page or email me.
Just to get you started, here’s a few I have in my collection already–
That’s Really Super, Supergirl— XTC
Superman’s Big Sister— Ian Dury & The Blockheads
Spiderman— The Ramones
Kryptonite— Thee Doors Down
Flash— Queen (Yeah, all right, not strictly a superhero. But, you know, it’s my list!)
Plastic Man— The Kinks
Particle Man— They Might Be Giants
Superman— Dina Rae/Eminem
(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman— The Kinks
Pocket Full of Kryptonite— Spin Doctors
Superman (It’s Not Easy)— Five For Fighting
First person to mention The Spiderpig Song or Prince’s Batman soundtrack wins a free bullet in the back of your head when you’re least expecting it.
