- Batman: Partyman- Prince
- Batman Returns: Face to Face - Siouxsie and the Banshees
- Batman Forever: Kiss from a Rose
- Batman & Robin: The End is the Beginning is the End - Smashing Pumpkins
I sometimes forget Smashing Pumpkins- the End is the Beginning is the End is from Batman and Robin, since they used it in the first Watchmen trailer. It worked so well with that footage that I associate it with that movie more.
Aw, Face to Face is a close second, but I can’t resist the Seal.
It’s kind of a loaded poll. They’re all great songs but Kiss from a Rose is easily one of the best pop songs of the 90’s.
The other Pumpkins song The Beginning is the End is the Beginning is the Watchmen trailer song I believe. The Batman and Robin soundtrack is the one I played the most.
My favorite from the 89 Batman soundtrack isn’t ‘Partyman’ (as great as that song is). It’s 'the Future.
I pick Seal, Kiss from the Rose.
In a sky full of people, only some want to fly. Isn’t that crazy?!
I went with the Pumpkins because I don’t actually dislike the song.
You hate me don’t you @AlexanderKnox?
U2’s “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” from Batman Forever.
Since that’s not a choice, I went with Smashing Pumpkins’ song, but I’m also a fan of their other Batman & Robin song, “The Beginning is the End is The Beginning”, which played over the end credits of Batman & Robin.
I mean, the entire Prince Batman Soundtrack.
Kiss from a Rose by Seal out of those picks.
But there is a lot of other good songs from the Soundtrack of Batman Forever. It’s my all time favorite soundtrack of all the Batman movies (maybe of all time in my personal opinion).
Fun Fact: Kiss by A Rose existed prior to Batman Forever.
Joel Schumacher enjoyed the song and felt that it was a natural fit for the movie. He also directed it’s music video.
The “Music From and Inspired By” Batman Forever soundtrack contains a pretty damn good assortment of solid tunes, with some being in the movie and others not, but still feeling apropos to its aesthetics.
I tried to include the “hit”, you know, the one most people remember.
For me, U2’s song defines Batman Forever, so I have a bias towards it over Kiss by a Rose.
@Tobias-RCO2 A good song, one which defines it’s movie quite well.
