“Superman” is a 1969 song by the Texas band The Clique, made more famous in 1986 when recorded by R.E.M. It was written by Mitchell Bottler and producer/songwriter Gary Zekley and originally released as the b-side to The Clique’s hit “Sugar on Sunday,“ itself a cover of a Tommy James and the Shondells song. R.E.M. recorded it for their fourth album, Lifes Rich Pageant. It was released as a single and received a fair amount of radio play, but did not chart on the main U.S. singles chart, though it did reach #17 on Billboard magazine’s Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
