Talk:Spider-Man (theme song)

The song was not featured in Spiderman 1 but was featured in 2 and 3.

On Saturday Night Live, when David Hyde Pearce hosted, he played a high school english teacher who discovered his students had all plagerized their poetry from famous songs rather than compose original works, which was the assignment. One student used the Spiderman theme song as "his" poem. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:45, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Iron Man[edit]

Where is the Iron Man parody supposed to be from, or is it just a general thing. I've seen at least two different versions of this: "Iron man, iron man, does whatever an iron can, gets the wrinkles out of clothes, his suit doesn't have a nose" from Nintendo Power and "Iron man, Iron man, does whatever a metallurgist can" from Sally Forth. Neither really seem notable enough to be mentioned, though. Pizzadinosaur (talk) 22:46, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Barack Obama[edit]

"Obamanan, Obamaman, can he do it? Yes he can..." While I don't know the full lyrics, an Australian radio station apparently created a parody centered around him a few weeks prior to the inauguration. Probably worth trying to discover which radio station specifically was behind it before adding it to the article though. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:04, 21 January 2009 (UTC)


According to the Times Online [1], this song was written by Paul Simon. From the article:

Paul Simon wrote the lyrics and theme song to the Sixties Spider-man cartoon as a favour to head of the ABC network. Because he didn't want to be associated with kiddie material, he asked that the music be credited to his old stage name, Jerry Landis. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:41, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

The Electric Company?[edit]

Could some one find references on the Spiderman Theme song from "The Electric Company"? It would seem that this also played a historic role in the character's music.

Why Michael Buble?[edit]

Why is the Michael Buble cover mentioned so prominently? It gets more space than the original song and almost as much space as all the other covers combined. I think it needs to be reworked into the Covers/Parodies section. Also, the main information and background from the original song needs to be fleshed out. I'm going to take a whack at these when I have a chance. Shoeless Ho (talk) 23:32, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Totally agree, so I've been bold and removed all the Michael Buble material and condensed it into one item in the Covers section. As it stood, the entire text of the article except the lede and the Covers section was about this single cover. If someone wants to create a new article about the Buble version, that's fine, but it was grossly excessive in this article. Mnudelman (talk) 18:13, 15 June 2014 (UTC)


Is it worth it to include the lyrics in the article?
