Five for Fighting's sixth studio album boasts a remarkable step up, with a brighter vibe from the king of balladry
FIVE FOR FIGHTING/ BOOKMARKS
It's been more than a decade since the heartfelt piano ballad Superman (It's Not Easy) became a breakout hit for American singer-songwriter John Ondrasik, better known as the man behind Five for Fighting. The song was so well received it went on to comprise the soundtrack of numerous hit TV series such as Smallville, Dawson's Creek and Grey's Anatomy. Its message also resonated throughout the world when Ondrasik performed it live at The Concert for New York City, a benefit event held after the 9/11 attacks. Locally, Superman (It's Not Easy) quickly became a staple for cover bands to play at a pub or beer garden. A few notes in and a soft, gentle sway from the crowd is almost 100% guaranteed.
