MORE UPTEMPO THAN A SPEEDING BULLET: Yahoo's Top 10 Superman Songs +1

Superman is one of comics biggest sources of real-world-inspiration, so it only seems natural 'Big Blue' would pop up in the inspirationally fueled world of pop rock and roll. So many infact Yahoo has chucked together a list of the Top 10 Superman Songs. Place your bets then click through for the list and one I think is missing from the bunch.

Yahoo's Top 10 Superman Songs

1. (Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman - The Kinks 
2. Superman - R.E.M.
3. The Man of Metropolis Steals Our Hearts - Sufjan Stevens
4. Waitin' For A Superman - The Flaming Lips
5. Sunshine Superman - Donovan
6. Superman Lover - Johnny "Guitar" Watson
7. Silvergun Superman - Stone Temple Pilots
8. Superman - Bush
9. Kryptonite - 3 Doors Down
10. Superman Inside - Eric Clapton

Some real beauties that's for sure, but I've never met a Top Ten list I didn't want to alter. Here I'd chuck in Land of Confusion. Sure Genesis did a great job on the original, but Disturbed's recent cover is really great to run to and comic superstar artist Todd McFarlane worked on the video! Catch all his handy-work - just make with the clicky...
