    When thinking about the hero song, I immediately think of a power ballad that they sing…to themselves. Think “Am I a Man or a Muppet” from the Muppets or, more specifically “I Want to Know What Love Is” by Foreigner. I think that would be hilarious. I definitely like Brian’s idea of the hero singing in the 3rd person with the reveal at the end of each stanza. A poignant part of the show getting flipped on its head by the reveal of “and the hero I love is me” etc. But I guess of the two styles you presented, I lean more toward the doo-wop style. It’s easier to get more actors involved in the background and it’s just kitschy and campy enough to be hilarious. Keep doing what you’re doing guys. It’s great!!
