Best song from the original film series?

Kiss From A Rose...Instant classic. :up:
 
I didn't care for any of them. They all felt "tacked on", i.e. pop songs put in the movie to attract young audience members. the problem with using contemporary pop music in a film like this, is it dates the film. I prefer Nolan's approach, it has a much more timeless feel to me.
 
Then I must be dated because I still listen to Prince, U2, and the Smashing Pumpkins. Films are a product of their time, I don't claim films from the 70's are dated because they feature 70's music. It's what's to be expected from every generation of movies.

The settings themselves dates the movie. TDK will seem "old" in 20 years. The only section of film that's impervious to this, would probably be futuristic sci-fi.

How is 'Batman Returns' not timeless :huh:

True enough to an extent, But I find find using contemporaneous pop songs will date a movie more than anything else could. Truth be told, That's not the primary reason I don't think they belong in a Batman movie. I just plain don't like any of them.
 
I go with Face to Face because of it's relevance to the film, but all those songs, save R Kelly's, are great. Yes, even 'Batdance'. :hehe:
 
How IS it timeless?. It's a good movie, but I would never classify it as timeless.
I'd say Batman Returns is almost in the same league as Batman The Animated Series, in this regard. I'd say it's timeless, not as timeless as the latter, but you really can't pick anything out that dates the film. 89 would be as well if not for the Prince tracks which are so 80's.
 
U2's Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me is my all time fav. Forgot about it for a while until I listened to Weird Al's "cavity search". When I heard the lyric "Numb me, drill me, floss me, bill me", I remembered the original from my childhood. Good times.

Well then...what year does it take place?

All the Batman films timeless or not besides B&R are all great.
 
"Face to Face," no doubt. They used it perfectly in the movie. I dig "Partyman" for the same reason.
 
It really is, isn't it? Even out of the context of being Batman-related, I still love it. Just great music lyrically and in the composition. It's catchy. :hehe:
 
What about the song during Joker's parade? 'Trust'? I actually like that much better than 'Partyman'.

My favorite song from the first movie was Electric Chair but yeah Trust was pretty damn cool. I love how it's incorporated into dialogue from the scene and all.
 
Face to Face without of a doubt. I also like Kiss From A Rose by Seal and Patyman by Prince. Another one I like is Smash It Up by the Offspring. It's the song that played when Dick Grayson was driving the Batmobile. 0:48 is where it picks up.

 
Face to Face, Kiss From a Rose and Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me are all tops. Face to Face is my favourite though, and it perfectly fits in with the rest of Elfman's score.
