Batman: Music From The Motion Picture
Sello: Warner Records
Can you imagine Prince, of all people, singing ditties about the Joker as the "Partyman" and the Batman as keeping "Vicki Waiting" while he saves Gotham? Thanks to the blockbuster movie and Prince's superstardom, Batman sold over two million copies. Today, it's an Eighties pop curio that sounds really dated. The epic love ballad "Scandalous" and the throbbing pop beats of "The Future" and "Lemon Crush" hold up best. However, nothing exemplifies its strangeness quite like "Batdance," a "megamix"-styled cacophony with cameos from Jack Nicholson and Kim Basinger.
