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.
