Soundtracks – Superman Returns!

SupermanReturns      Not many people liked this film. I, for one, quite enjoyed it. Having grown up watching the Christopher Reeves Superman films, it was exciting to finally see Superman on the big screen again doing superfeets using modern film technology. I thought Brandon Routh did a great job stepping into the Blue Tights and Red Boots and Cape.

And the music…got chills when the screen went dark and silence was broken by the opening notes of the classic Superman Theme written by John Williams. This time around, the score was composed by John Ottman, long time collaborator of Bryan Singer. Ottman also serves as a film editor on their projects together. He managed to recreate many of the William’s original themes and created a few new ones of his own that blended together to create a wonderfully enjoyable soundtrack.

Sadly, the commercial release left off 2 of my favorite cues. If you get the chance, take a listen to Krypton Destroyed and Superman Returns

Highlights of the commercial release: honestly most of this soundtrack is just wonderful but i guess i would point out 4) Little Secrets/Power of the Sun and 12) Reprise/Fly Away as two of the best…


1. Main Titles
2. Memories
3. Rough Flight
4. Little Secrets/Power Of The Sun
5. Bank Job
6. How Could YOU Leave Us?
7. Tell Me Everything
8. You’e Not One Of Them
9. Not Like The Train Set
10. So Long Superman
11. The People You Care For
12. I Wanted You To Know
13. Saving The World
15. Reprise / Fly Away
