Doesn't Anybody Ever Know That the World's a Subway?

Those, of course, are the lyrics to Superman's Dead by Our Lady Peace. That is the song that came blaring out of my clockradio on Monday morning.
"That's weird," I thought to myself, "CKUA (the station that my clockradio has selected for itself this month) never plays Our Lady Peace."
Then I learned the morbid reason for which it was playing. Superman did die. I felt sad as I finished listening to OLP, then to The Crash Test Dummies (Dummy or Dummies, I don't know which)'s Superman. That one was a little bit more appropriate for the circumstances, seeing that OLP (or"wolves' " if you will)'s song doesn't really have much to do with Superman himself. It's about the loss of childhood innocence, as far as I can tell.

Christopher Reeve, may people continue to push for spinal cord research.

Peace. May Christopher Reeve fly and be free in Heaven. He deserves it. Great man.

Hmm, it seems that I fancy putting song lyrics on my blog, so I'm going to keep doing it.

I'm still undecided as to whether or not this was an appropriate song to play.
