What the heck – I figured I’d post a second video for the Animated Anthems event. This one’s a fan video by tehbasil set to “The Ballad of Barry Allen,” by Jim’s Big Ego, from the album, They’re Everywhere!. If anyone in the music industry knows Barry Allen, it’s singer/songwriter Jim Infantino. He’s the nephew of classic Flash artist Carmine Infantino!
Check back at our first video of the day, the Filmation Flash intro from 1967, or check out the rest of the Animated Anthems being celebrated today!

I’ve heard this song a few times and I really like it (and I’m not just saying that cause I’m a huge flash fan). Got stuck in my head one day and then I was just humming it all day at work.
BTW that Carmine Infantino fact… did not know that.

That’s a great friggin’ tune. I enjoy goofy super-hero songs as much as the next guy, but this was actually a thought-provoking, perceptive piece of music. Thanks for introducing me to it!
