View Full Version : Good songs for Smallville
Which songs do you think would be good to be played in the show which convey either a certain emotion one of the characters could be feeling or seem to be a "Superman" type song?
Here's one: "Would you love me then" by Lori McKenna. Its chorus asks questions such as "what if i could leap tall buildings in a single bound" or "what if I had X-ray eyes"...."would you love me then?"
Any other ideas?
Meoww! Send in the clowns!

How about this;
If the show is stupid and you know it clap your hands. (Clap, Clap, Clap).

For some reason, the wise words of an old sage suddenly spring to mind:
Ah, there's the JohnJones we all know and are annoyed by...!

i think that the song perfect by simple plan would kinda work....but it's too slow for a show.it reminds me of SUPERMAN when he turns back the world to slow down time in the film.
it talks bout how a kid fought dad and now they hate each other.he asks if he grew up to plan and says he can't turn back time.it's really good to listen to.

I don't know if these songs have been used yet but how about "Iris" by Goo Goo Dolls and "I Believe I Can Fly" by R. Kelly.
These lyrics from Iris particularly make me think of young Clark's isolation from the rest of the world:
<I>And I don't want the world to see me
Cuz I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am</I>
The rest of the song sounds like a good description of his feelings for Lana as well.
As for I Believe I Can Fly, that song made me think of Superman the first time I heard it and it continues to, even to this day.

Actually, it's amazing how many songs have been named after or directly reference Supes. Just to name a few artists who've recorded a song called Superman or have referenced him: David Bowie, Bush, Eminem, REM, Crash Test Dummies, The Kinks, 3 Doors Down, Spin Doctors, Sister Hazel, Genesis, Alanis Morissette, Andy Stochansky, and that's just from memory. I guess theoretically any of these songs would be appropriate.

How about the awsome punk rock cover of "I believe I can fly" by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes?
How about John Mayer's "Bigger than my body"?
