The history of this hit originates in the mid-80s: the composition owes its appearance to the film “Season of Miracles", because it was for him that it was written Yuri Chernavsky.

Song "Superman" became a big hit with the Indian public, and there was a good reason for that: it sounded in the program of the International Festival "India-USSR", which took place for several years! Alla Borisovna has always been one of those artists who was not afraid of experiments, but boldly looked them straight in the eye! So - at first glance, a superficial and frivolous song from the film hooked the audience, soon becoming a big hit ... English version "Superman” enjoyed great success in the USSR. Nevertheless, at first the Soviet media ignored this fact ...

Successful cover versions

At the peak of its popularity, this song often became an inspiration for covers by various bands and performers ... For example, you can highlight the version of the Swedish band The Pinks: shortly after the release of "Superman"The group released their album, which they called"The Pink's Superman / Pink & Rock'n Roll"!

If we talk about Russian performers, then it is worth noting the version of the team "Kar-man" 1997 (Unfortunately I couldn't find it...)

Comedian and actor - actually Fallon big music lover! But that doesn't mean that he loves all music... He has so many records that he even came up with such an interesting segment of his show as "No Listening List": and it's not that these songs are bad (although some of they're definitely bad), they're just... weird. On the next episode of The Tonight Show Jimmy Fallon shared with the audience a new portion of strange songs that were included in his already famous list "Do not include!" Among them was a late 70s singer named Gary, 80s rapper Devastatin' Dave, и Alla Pugacheva with the song "Superman"... The comedian also drew attention to the unusual cover of the single, in which Pugacheva rides in a buggy, and above it stands a mustachioed man in glasses and a Superman suit.

Even though he included the song "Superman'in your anti-top, at the end Fallon said that the song was good and removed it from the list "Do not include!" He even praised the song: “Super, super, superman,” he sang Fallon in unison with Pugacheva! “I love this song!” commented the comedian.
