  • Josh from Champaign, Il"I always as that of all my prey" It's spelled prey. ;)
  • Seventhmist from 7th HeavenWhat an utter travesty that Prince's album outsold the album with Danny Elfman's score. His music was indispensable, while Prince's offerings made no significant contribution.
  • Susan from Airdrie, -I used to listen to the Batman soundtrack on my Walkman religiously. Prince made it awesome.
  • Eric from Bend, OrI was 9 years old when the first Batman movie and this song came out. I always really liked this song (more so for the beat and sound than the relationship to Batman).
  • Ma_cherie from Little Rock, ArAbout the time this came out, I remember learning that Prince was a big Batman fan and was disappointed at not being picked for the part in any of the movies. Did anyone else hear that, 'cause I wouldn't want to post incorrect information.
  • Ekristheh from Halath, United StatesAll this and brains too!
  • Nathan from Defiance, OhWait a sec, Jack Nicholson is a fan of Prince? Thats fu**ed up.
  • Leya Qwest from Anchorage, AkI think this hit's just awesome....but it's the video that's simply GODHEAD. Prince makes a fantastic Joker, and all those Vicki Vales doing their thing is some real cool deal. Keep bustin', oh Purple One!
  • Max from New York, United Statesgodly song
  • Annabelle from Eugene, OrWhen I first heard the line, "Get The Funk Up!", I seriously thought he was saying, "Get The F**k Off!".
  • Al from Wahiawa, HiJack Nicholson is a big Prince fan & pitched him to director Tim Burton about the Artist possibly doing the whole soundtrack.
