Batdance – Prince (1981) [Batman]
An individual, limited edition, example of vinyl record art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” single featuring the pop single by Prince from 1981, Batdance. The record was released on the WEA record label, in the UK, and has been reworked into the shape of the Batman bat logo.
Batdance is a song by American musician Prince, from the 1989 Batman soundtrack. Helped by the film’s popularity, the song became very popular across the world. It was a last-minute replacement for a brooding track titled Dance with the Devil, which Prince felt was too dark. Batdance is almost two songs in one—a chaotic, mechanical dance beat that changes gears into a slinky, funky groove before changing back for the song’s conclusion.
