Alan Menken to Create Theme Song for ‘Captain America’

It has been announced that Alan Menken will be creating an original USO theme song for Captain America: The First Avenger. The song is called “Star Bangled Man” and is co-written by David Zippel and performed by Metro Voices.

Alan said that he wanted to capture the spirit of the wartime songs.

‘Star Spangled Man’ is a USO style production number; stylistically an homage to those great wartime songs of Irving Berlin. In it, we follow the on-stage development of Captain America from a nervous amateur to a confident showman. For the song, I reunited with my Hercules collaborator and Tony award winner, David Zippel.’

Alan Silvestri does the original score for Captain America: The First Avenger and it hits theaters on July 22, 2011.
