Batman Music: Prince Dead at 57

Prince, one of the many artists who created music for Batman, died at age 57.

Some of Prince Rogers Nelson’s music was used as soundtrack to Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989. He recorded nine songs for the movie and two which were featured in some of the film’s most crucial parts. “Partyman” was played when The Joker, portrayed by Jack Nicholson, and his bodyguards vandalized a museum. The song also featured the voice of Anna Fantastic, Prince’s girlfriend during that time. The scene where The Joker held his own parade and threw away money at random to the people of Gotham is when Prince’s “Trust” is being played in the background.
