I thought I'd share my own custom album programming of the Superman: The Movie score. Essentially, this is what I would have put out, if I was in charge of putting out an album of the score in 2019. This is mostly a compilation of everything from the 2018-19 La La Land Releases. If anyone else has made their own playlist or edit, I'd love to see it! Any thoughts, comments or suggestions are welcomed!

Theme From Superman (Concert Version)
As far as I know, this is the complete score. I have left off any "Film Mixes" of the Main/End Titles, because I don't think they add too much to the set list. There are already many appearances of the Main Theme, and they wouldn't add enough of a substantial change.
I also considered adding the 'Original Sound Track' Album as a Disc Four, but decided not to. Instead, I keep it as a seperate Release in my iTunes Library. Its strength lies in being a succinct and selective presentation of Williams' score, and tacking it onto the end of a 3-CD presentation wouldn't do it justice. It should be enjoyed as its own collection.
