Herbie Mann - "Superman"



Here's another find from the AMERICAN TOP 40 archives. I'm not sure how I went all these years without hearing of a comic book-themed song that actually made the Top 40. Yet "Superman" by Herbie Mann was completely new to me when I heard it this weekend on a 1979 countdown. I'll go out on a limb here and assume the song was inspired by the release of SUPERMAN in late 1978.
