(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman – The Kinks (US 12″ Extended Mix)

And now for something completely different (I’d never heard this before, nothing wrong with trying something new) … A reader of my blog’s request :

“(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman” is a song written by Ray Davies that was first released on the Kinks’ 1979 album, Low Budget. The song, inspired by Superman: The Movie, employs a disco beat and lyrics that describe the singer’s wish to be like the fictional character Superman. The song’s disco style was created as a response to Arista Records founder Clive Davis’s request for “a club-friendly record,” despite Ray Davies’ hatred of disco.

The song was released as the lead single from Low Budget, becoming a moderate hit in North America. It has since appeared on numerous compilation and live albums.

  1. You know, it’s funny. I work with my old man. So I know a lot of classic rock. But the mainstream radio stations hardly ever play anything outside of maybe a hundred songs’ worth of playlist.

    But every so often they open it up to caller requests so people who were around to remember forgotten hits can open things up, or they run an alphabetical order and play uncommon songs.

    Anyway. It’s a pretty salient song, methinks. And I love the beat.
