I’ll start things off with this Prince classic:

I’ll admit this doesn’t really remind me of the movie, but it’s a great hit from '89 regardless :musical_score:

Here’s another great 80s hit that would be appropriate for this playlist. I can imagine the montage of scenes that could be set to this one:

You remember, that Cher song was quoted in DCeased: A Good Day to Die #1? I am so sympathetic with Scott there: “Are your last words really going to be quoting Cher?” “I like Cher.”

I’m just assuming no one is mentioning the actual theme song because they think it’s too obvious?

Oh, never mind, I saw it was mentioned.

Oh, DCeased is a great topic for Mixtape Monday! I have so many ideas: “Bad Moon Rising”, “Radioactive”, and “Now or Never”, to name a few.

So this is one of my favorite songs from Batman (actually any song from it reminds me of the first Lego Batman game)
“Waltz to the Death”, by Danny Elfman

Since this series taps into nostalgia, this one is kinda fun… and it’s only off by a few years…
“1985”, by Bowling for Soup

Well hello there G.L., Mixtape Mob, and everyone else. :wave: :sunglasses:

Batman '89… :batman:

Quite a selection of tunes to choose for this one. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

I will also add to the 80’s theme. :smiley:

First up, for the criminals in Gotham before the arrival of Batman… :musical_note:

And then, for Batman’s constant war on crime in Gotham, this tune. :batman_hv_1:

Oh cool, I didn’t know “1985” was by Bowling for Soup!

Here’s one. This was a song by Prince that was written and recorded for the Batman '89 soundtrack but was left out because he felt it was too dark.

I was reading about this yesterday, I didn’t realize it was actually recorded. I am kind of amused by people thinking something Batman related can be “too dark”. :stuck_out_tongue:

2 Likes

I think it was deemed “too dark for Top 40 dance charts” not “too dark for Batman”… :wink:

That does make more sense. :stuck_out_tongue:
