Soundtrack Q & A
Q: Who sings the song "Light's Out" in the new Superman Returns trailer? (from MJ in Palmetto, FL)
A: I don't think it's "Light's Out." It should be from Full Tilt: "They've Broken Through" by Groove Addicts. Maybe you are referring to a different trailer? (thanks to Supermann, Guangzhou, Chinaadd more info

Q: There's background music playing in an elevator scene... a very popular tune. Can I know the title of the song? Thx in advance. (from vince in malaysia)
A: "Quando Quando Quando," originally by Humperdink and now sung by Buble.... (thanks to Lyne, West Hartford CT Planet Earthadd more info
A: According to the closing credits, the song is not performed by Michael Buble. It's performed by the group The Drifters. (thanks to Supermann, Guangzhou, Chinaadd more info

Q: What's the name of the song Jason (Tristan Lake Leabu) and Brutus (David Fabrizio) play on the piano in the ship? Thanks in advance.  (from Blade in Ljubljana, Slovenia)
A: "Heart & Soul," a popular song by Frank Loesser and Hoagy Carmichael which has been recorded by many artists. This song/instrumental is also featured in the Big soundtrack from 1988. (thanks to Supermann, Guangzhou, Chinaadd more info

Q: What is the name of the song heard when Louis Lane enters Lex Luthor's ship? There is a song like opera one, and I think it was a famous song... also, can you tell me who is the singer too? (from JquaD in malaysia)
A: It's called "Habanera," an aria from the opera Carmen by Georges Bizet. Singer is not yet known, but may not be too important. (thanks to Supermann, Guangzhou, Chinaadd more info
A: According to the end credits, the version of "Habanera" that is heard in the film is performed by the Slovak Royal Symphony Orchestra with Alexander Rahbari conducting, and is available on the Naxos music label. However, a check of the Naxos website shows there is a typo in the end credits; it should read Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra (instead of Royal). The recording is available on multiple albums through iTunes. (thanks to Hand of Krypton, USAadd more info

Q: What is the classic/opera song called that Lex Luthor listens to in his yacht? It's not Habanera. It sounds like mermaids. =P (from Ani in Stockholm, Sweden)
A: That's when Kitty and Lex were in the ship talking about Prometheus. The opera is called "Flower Duet"/Lakme by French composer Leo Delibes. (thanks to Supermann, Guangzhou, Chinaadd more info

Q: What is the name of the music that is playing on the teaser movie trailer? It is not on the movie soundtrack.  (from user120 in Maryland)
A: That should be the first 1 min 22 seconds from the #2 track called "The Planet Krypton" in the first Superman the Movie OST. (thanks to Supermann, Guangzhou, Chinaadd more info

Q: What is the name of the music (and who's it by) playing in the trailer when Superman is trying to save the plane etc (1:54 - 2:16)?
...from ant in london (answer ant's question)

Q: Where is the other soundtrack? When will that be available? Not the instrumental one by Ottman, but the one with the variety of songs by different performers. There's a song I want from the movie, beautifully sung and gives me hope.

Q: What music is playing when Kevin Spacey is talking about Rome and England and the USA on the boat? (from ironlung in ohio dayton usa)

Q: Where can I find "Heart and Soul" that little Jason plays with Brutus?
...from scott in scotland (answer scott's question)

Q: There is another symphony I liked. Not "Habanera" nor "Flower Duet." I believe it's playing when Louis Lane entered Lex's room where he had his schematic's for America's renovation?? What song is that? (from chris in Valley Stream, New York, U.S.A.)
