Let’s Broaden Our Minds With An Australian TV Show About Dancing To ‘Batdance’

Batdance00

Although Chris Sims is without question the World's Foremost Batmanologist, there is one area where he's a little weak: International Batman Studies. Sure, he knows about Jiro Kuwata's manga and The Wild World of Batwoman, but it seems like there are always strange new interpretations of the Caped Crusader from other countries to discover. Like that time in 1989 when a bunch of Australians dressed up like Prince and did some dodgy choreography to "Batdance."

Let’s Get Nuts: A Contemporary Review Of Prince’s ‘Batman’ Soundtrack Album

Untitled-1

In the summer of 1989, primed by "Kiss" and "Alphabet St." and "Sign 'O' the Times" to expect brilliance from the first taste of new Prince music, I raced out to buy "Batdance," the first single to be released from his soundtrack to Tim Burton's Batman. It seemed like a great idea at the time.

I remember my feeling of dazed disappointment the first time I heard "Batdance" lurch to an end. "Batdance" isn't even a song, as such, but a cluster of unrelated chunks of underdone rhythm tracks, ineptly pasted together with chopped-up samples of film dialogue, a couple of lines flown in from other songs, Prince singing the hook from Neal Hefti's '60s Batman theme, and (in its album mix) a very aggressive guitar solo that has almost nothing to do with what's going on around it. Prince and Batman together? How could that not be awesome? What just went wrong here?
