Posts Tagged ‘The Man Of Steel’

The mythology of the modern age is that there exists among us individuals of great abilities.  Typically, these individuals are just like you and me until some life changing event transforms them in such a way that they become aware of their abilities and become super-heroes.  They do what the average man or woman cannot.  They protect the innocent, the weak, the young, the elderly and the frail.  The pinnacle hero in the pantheon of comic book superheroes is Superman – the Man of Steel.  In honor of the release of the latest movie, aptly titled:  “The Man of Steel“, I’ve added the lyrics to two songs:  “I Need A Hero” and “Search For The Hero” to my poems page.  The first was made famous by Bonnie Tyler and the second was performed by the group M People.  Both are terrific, up-tempo, inspirational / motivational songs.  In other words, the lyrics alone don’t do them justice.
As always, read through the lyrics, go listen to the songs on your favorite music provider and then go be the hero other people need you to be and who you can be.  Who knows, someday there may be a myth about you…
Don’t forget to go see someone play some live music any chance you get and support the arts in your own community.
And, of course I’ll be reviewing the movie after I see it this next weekend…
