Question ID: 700901
Can you tell me the name of this song I'm looking for, and the artist? I know a few of the lyrics... "I've got to have you...be my wonderland, be my Superman...I wanna F ya, I wanna F ya." It's a female vocalist, sounds like Macy Gray (but I don't think it is). The song is probably classified in the electronic or pop category.

Hi jonniekat, Turns out it *is* Macy Gray after all, but she?s a featured performer on Fat Boy Slim?s ?Halfway Between the Gutter and the Stars.

I don't know how you did it, but you did. I'm sure others have asked more complicated questions. But believe me, I tried to Google the answer myself because a) I have every confidence in Google, and b) I am cheap. I will recommend Google Answers to everyone...

Well, we?re supposed to post our search strategy and I forgot, so here tis: Google search: ?be my Superman? ?lyrics? and after 3 pages of Superman/Supergirl of Killing Heidi lyrics, on page 4 you come across this nugget: Love life@Everything2.com A song by Fatboy Slim, with lyrics/vocals by Macy Gray, released on Halfway ... Gonna be my Superman Be my Batman Be my Invisible Man! Yeah (Oh my soul) ... everything2.com/index.pl?node=love%20life - 35k - Then I compared the lyrics to yours, checked out some reviews at Amazon and elsewhere, and played the full version at Rhapsody to make sure the folks at E2 were reliable (they usually are). Then I checked out some CD reviews in case you wanted to purchase the entire CD (shout out to Marty Brown@culturedose). Hope you?re enjoying your Lovelife and a pleasure doing business with ya and thanks for the stars. Please send all your friends GA way. Ta-ta, =V=
