Character: Johnny Storm (a.k.a. Human Torch)
Theme song: "I Know My Love."
Traditional Arr. by Paddy Moloney, performed by The Chieftains in a team-up with The Corrs, on Chieftains albums Tears of Stone (RCA 1999) and The Wide World Over (RCA 2002).
I know my love by his way of walking
And I know my love by his way of talking
And I know my love dressed in a suit of blue
And if my love leaves me, what will I do?
While this is certainly Johnny's theme song, you have to take it from the point of view of one of his (former) girlfriends. Which one? I have no idea. Odds are there's at least one that fits the bill, though.
From Fantastic Four #526.
And the FF uniform is, of course, blue. It fits. (By the way, that panel? It's the recap of a dream. Who's the leafy-haired woman in the bottom right corner, anyway? Just curious.)
And still she cried, "I love him the best,
And a troubled mind, sure can know no rest"
And still she cried, "Bonny boys are few,
And if my love leaves me, what will I do?"
There is a dance house in Maradyke
And there my true love goes every night
He takes a strange girl upon his knee
Well now don't you think that that vexes me?
...and the lyrics are a bit old-fashioned (though the fiber arts aren't exactly dying),...
If my love knew I can wash and wring
If my love knew I can sew and spin
I'd make a coat of the finest kind
But the want of money sure leaves me behind
I know my love is an errant rover
I know he'll wander the wild world over
In dear old Ireland he'll no longer tarry
An American girl he's sure to marry
Um... Okay, close enough.
Runner-Up: "Help Me" by Joni Mitchell, with lyrics along the same vein and fire imagery in the second verse. Not nearly as fun and upbeat, though.
