Singer/songwriter Randy Cherkis releases super-heroic new single
(Published: June 16, 2013)

For singer/songwriter Randy Cherkis, the timing couldn't have been better. His lovely acoustic single, "When a Super Hero Falls in Love," made its debut shortly before the latest Superman smash, Man of Steel.

Q: When you wrote "When a Super Hero Falls in Love," did you have any idea that Man of Steel was about to be released?

A: No, I had no idea when I wrote the song over a year ago there was a new Superman release called Man of Steel coming out. In fact, I was inspired to write the song after seeing the movie I Am Number Four. I wanted to write a song about something original and was intrigued by the common themes of the traditional Superman script with Lois and Clark and other super-hero movies that had them falling in love and struggling to keep their identities and powers a secret.

Q: How did the song come about? What was the inspiration behind it?

A: After having some success with my Fathers and Daughters EP, fans e-mailed me asking me to write more songs that had a love song theme. My goal was to try to write an original song. After watching the film I Am Number Four, the inspiration was to capture the human dynamics of being a hero and still being able to have a romantic relationship with that special woman of your dreams. I also wanted to get across that there are super-heroes in all of us who do amazing things each and every day but also struggle with the same challenges of balancing the demands of domestic life with a romantic relationship.

Q: Did you grow up reading comic books? Were you fascinated by the idea of secret identities?

A: I did. I loved comic books and still enjoy them today. I am fascinated with the concept of secret identities. We are all multi-dimensional and have so many different sides of ourselves that others may not ever know about or be surprised to one day learn.

Q: There is romanticism behind the lyrics, that being a super hero itself is romantic with all of its confidentiality. Is that how you see being a super hero?

A: My feeling is that it's not being a super-hero that is romantic in its own right. It's that love and romanticism are such powerful forces that cannot be controlled by even a super-hero with powers. They fall victims to the same ups and downs and symptoms of love.

Q: There's irony in a being with super powers having the same emotional weaknesses as a regular human being. Is that what you intended to get across in this tune?

A: Exactly. This is what I was shooting for! I hope this message comes across which is why tag line to song is: "Dedicated to the super-hero in all of us who do amazing things each and every day."
