Weekend Superman Music

One of our favorite groups, The Kinks, released "Superman" from their "Low Budget" album in 1979. The Kinks were being pressured by overrated record mogul Clive Davis to do a "club friendly" song (this was the disco era, after all).  Ray Davies decided to respond with a humorous take on the wildly popular "Superman" movies, and the "club friendly" sound was subsequently sharpened up by brother Dave Davies' guitar work. And, voila - a great Kinks song that we hope you'll enjoy.
