17. “Super Heroes”
Performer(s): Brad, Janet, The Criminologist, and chorus
One of a handful of songs here you’d swear was written by someone with a hard-on for Ziggy Stardust, “Super Heroes” might be the least-impacting track in the Rocky canon, but it does have two saving graces: the Criminologist’s introspective final thoughts and a choral arrangement that wouldn’t be terribly foreign in a chapel. Given this entire maelstrom was spawned from a tiny church wedding in Denton, it feels fitting. Dull, but fitting.
Moment of Absolute Pleasure: The Criminologist’s interjections are supportively poetic, reminiscent of the old Scotsman’s rant on Pink Floyd’s “Great Gig in the Sky”. –David Buchanan
