Song Description

On the surface of the song, superman is questioning the motive behind his relationship with his girlfriend. Deeper the song can be about anyone in the same frame of mind. Suspicion, fear. In the end it works out. The other party has to hammer home their love convincingly.

Story Behind the Song

No backstory except I will sometimes have a curl in my hair that sometimes reminded me of superman. I'm always looking for a story to write about. Why not a superman curl?

Broadjam Member Reviews

This is really solid early 80s Power Pop like The Connells, REM, Mitch Easter, Posies, or like a band I was in called The Deal. Very much like the Posies actually. Really strong and enjoyable vocal performance with very good lyrics, melody, and changes underneath that add drama. Excellent arrangement, jangly guitars, and the backing vocals are ace. This is really like a period classic that I never heard before. Superb work!!

Lyrics

Superman Curl
Words and Music by John Masarone

She's in love with my superman curl and I know this isn't right
She's in love with my superman curl and I feel this while in flight

Way up here I can see the city lights
Way down there got a feeling that I fight

Pros and cons are that I love her
When I'm with her I am home

Still I don't know if our planets are aligned
Does she love me for who I am?

(Chorus)

And I don't care who is friend or foe
'cause where I stand is all I need to know

Pros and cons are that I love her
When I'm with her I am home

In a flash I have the strength to stop a train
But deep inside I am weak and strained

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
She already told me that
She really loves me

How can I deny
the power of those eyes
seeing past a super guy.

I'm in love with my superman girl...

She's in love with my superman curl. That's OK and I'm alright
She's in love with my superman curl but I think she is out of sight!

I'm in love with my superman girl and and I know that this is right
I'm in love with my superman girl and I feel this while in flight
