‘The Man From Metropolis Steals Our Hearts’

Besides the connection to Superman’s hometown, Sufjan Stevens said his song ‘The Man from Metropolis Steals Our Hearts’ was more about the need to create symbols of national pride, fame and glory.

‘The Man From Metropolis Steals Our Hearts’ is off of Stevens’ 2005 release ‘Illinois.’ In live performances, the singer has been known to play the song with an inflatable Superman he purchased in the real town of Metropolis, Ill.
