5. “Miranda” by Adam West, Batman (1966 TV series)
I love this song. I love that this woman has Batman wrapped around her finger so much that he is going to make Robin patrol the city on his own. Honorable mention would have been Frank Gorshin’s Riddler song.
4. “Partyman” by Prince, Batman
Most people would have placed “Batdance” on this list. Which is insane. I love Prince but that song is unlistenable. I do like “Trust” but “Partyman” out shines it by a hair. Also how excited is that henchman to paint that statue? He is loving it!
3. “Hold Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me, Thrill Me” by U2, Batman Forever
Not to be confused with the Weird Al version.
2. “Kiss from a Rose” by Seal, Batman Forever
This song is so good that people have forgotten that it was even on the soundtrack of a terrible movie. It is now a standard being played on soft rock stations all over the nation.
1. “Gotham City” by R. Kelly, Batman and Robin
A song that has almost nothing to do with Batman. That’s okay because it’s a great song! I think R. Kelly had this in a drawer somewhere and just changed the title last minute so it could be on the soundtrack. It may not have been the song 1997 wanted on a Batman soundtrack, but it was the one they deserved.
