Haunting YouTube, I haven’t found the actual video for the Iron Man song circa 1966. In those days, a (highly) limited animation of some of the Marvel Universe characters was broadcast to tragic kids who didn’t realize how shoddy it was. We were dazzled. Even though the famous “Spider-Man” song (c. 1967) appears in the expensive Sony blockbusters, we can’t expect to hear this number sung by an uncredited female jazz crooner:
Tony Stark makes you feel
He’s a cool exec with a heart of steel.
As Iron Man, all jets ablaze,
He fights and smites with repulsor rays!
A blaze of power! Iron Man!
Amazing armor! Iron Man!
Hunting around, I couldn’t find this song, although I was happy to hear that John “Dean Wormser” Vernon did the studly voice of our favorite alcholic flying robot man for this show. Vernon was another Canadian who sounded more American than the Americans (see Greene, Lorne, etc).
While I couldn’t find the did find the equally hummable Captain America march, with lyrics any former kid of a certain age can quote; no need to take up bandwidth with them. Making the coffee this morning I was thinking, What if the captain had been from Toronto?
When Captain Canada makes his point of order
All those who oppose his point must reconnoiter!
Respectful minds may disagree
When the Maple Leaf on the shield they see
When Captain Canada makes his point of orderrrrrr!
