Than a post about the Spin Doctors?

Remember this?

Well, I don’t think I can handle this
A cloudy day in Metropolis
I think I’ll talk to my analyst
I got it so bad for this little journalist

It drives me up the wall and through the roof
Lois and Clark in a telephone booth
I think I’m going out of my brain
I got it so bad for little miss Lois Lane

(Chrous)
Lois Lane please put me in your plan
Yeah, Lois Lane you don’t need no Super Man
Come on downtown and stay with me tonight
I got a pocket full of kryptonite, I
I got a pocket full of kryptonite, I
I got a pocket full of kryptonite

He’s leaping buildings in a single bound
I’m reading Shakespeare at my place downtown
Come on downtown and make love to me
I’m Jimmy Olsen not a titan, you see

He’s faster than a bullet, stronger than a train
He’s the one who got lucky, got his cape around miss Lois Lane
I can’t believe my dilemma is real
I’m competing with the man of steel

I think it’s clever. Boy did the song suck, though. (I saw them once…)

Here’s a better one, by Braid – “Collect From Clark Kent”

honey please don’t ignore me
please accept this call
i’m on the corner of cough and cold
and i’m a lovestruck lost soul
please save me
from the superpowers that i don’t believe in
save me please
i’m lost and alone
i can’t come home
i’m stuck in a phone booth
honey understand me
i’m not sure to fly
in fact i’m super stupid tonight
and all the loose ends remain untied
please save me
from the superpowers that i don’t believe in
save me please
i’m lost and alone
i can’t come home
i’m stuck in a phone booth again
but once in your arms
we’ll rise above the ground
you and me and the beautiful aerial view
of sunrise city
i’m never coming down
in your arms
we’ll rise above the clouds
me and you in the sweetest sheets of blue
i’m never coming down
but come and pick me up first please.

Super dramatic sounding in performance, and actually quite funny lyrically. But not just funny. Love it.
