One response to “BILLBOARD #1 HITS: #699: ‘BATDANCE’- PRINCE -AUGUST 5, 1989

  1. it was a dark (k)night for music when this hit #1. Couldn’t resist that pun! REM had a go at the Batman theme, probably while very drunk and tired, but had the sense to only put it out as an obscure b-side. Prince might’ve done the same. Then again, he wasn’t dumb… it was a #1 hit!
