THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
659-Laurie Anderson-O Superman.
1981-Number 2 single.
Best Bit-At 2.40 If you know of a more unusual sounding song to reach Number 2 in the chart i would like to know what it is.
The song became a surprise hit in the UK after it was championed by Radio 1 DJ John Peel.Laurie Anderson explained the songs meaning.’In 1979,Iranian students stormed the US embassy in Tehran.America went blazing in with helicopters to get hostages out,but it backfired.A helicopter and a plane crashed in the desert,we were left with dead bodies and a pile of burning debris,so i thought I’d write a song about all that and the failings of technology.’
‘Here come the planes they’re American planes made in America.’
