America Town is a 2000 album by Five for Fighting. It includes the hit single "Superman (It's Not Easy).". The song "Easy Tonight" appears in an episode of the sitcom Scrubs.

 

"Superman (It's Not Easy)" is a Contemporary Rock song by Five for Fighting (stage name of American singer-songwriter John Ondrasik) from his second album America Town, released in 2000. The single peaked at #14 on the US charts.

 

The song comes from Superman's point of view, although his name is never mentioned lyrically. The superhero is portrayed as misunderstood and not as powerful as people see him, relating to ordinary people's struggles to fit in, live up to expectations and fulfill their responsibilities. At the end of the song's music video, John Ondrasik lies in the bed with his own wife and son.
