**
...gefällt mir nicht...
*****
Fand ich am Anfang auch ganz grässlich, doch später dann richtig cool
**
...was ist schwarz und fliegt in einem Ganzkörperkondom durch die Gegend? Richtig! Batman. Um den ersten Film gab es dazumal ja einen Mega-Hype - und was war dran? Nichts, genausowenig wie an dem Titelsong von Prince. Wie konnte der bloss die Poleposition erreichen? Einer der schlechteren Songs von Prince. Nervt.
*
Grauenhafter Schund. Und sowas von Prince - wie kommt das?
**
finde ich auch eher schwach
***
Hype eben, na ja für eine # 1 in den USA hat's gereicht.
*****
Muss mich korrigieren. Im Spektrum von Prince Schaffen ist das natürlich nicht sein bester Titel, aber hat trotzdem Genialität. Prince gewann in der Auswahl gegen Jackson (der mit der Bad-Tour absorbiert war) und wurde zudem von Jack Nicholson bei Tim Burton für den Soundtrack vorgeschlagen. Der Titelsong aus dem Album entfaltet seine Wirkung v.a. mit dem Video, wo auch Paula Abdul noch etwas zu den Choreographien beisteuerte. "Batdance" sampelt die Oneliner von Nicholson von vorne bis hinten durch, inkl. Gekreische von Kim Basinger. "Ever Dance With The Devil in The Pale Moonlight? I Always Ask That Of All My Pray. I Just Like The Sound Of It!"
Mir gefällt's. Der ganze Sample-Hype Ende 80er wurde auch von Prince auf die Spitze getrieben. Der wilde Einbau aller Instrumente, v.a. der Gitarrensoli, der Tempiwechsel zu Vicky Vale und der Lyrics ist Pure Art! "Hey Ducky. Let Me Stick The 7-Inch In The Computer!"
Trotz der Tatsache, dass dies nicht viel mit Kommerz zu tun hat, war der internationale Hype so gross, dass auch in der Schweiz "Batdance" ganze 12 Wochen in den Top Ten war, davon 4 Wochen im August 1989 Platz 1.

Mir gefällt der Titel
****
Knapp ein 4 ! weil die Gitarre solo gut ist.... aber die "Text" und auch das Film ist, sehr schwach.... # 4 in Juli 1989.
*****
Gut, sogar sehr gut...
**
schlecht
****
Für diesen Song gibt's eine 4! Prince hat auf jeden Fall bessere Songs abgeliefert.
**
schwach
*
Kurz gesagt: mieserabel!!
**
SCHWACH
**
...nicht einmal das Lachen am Schluss ist wirklich lustig...
*
Wieder ein swache Platte von Prince aus Juni 1989 !!! Die Platte stand trotzdem 9 Wochen (Platz # 4) in die Holländische Top 40 ??? Mit Geld machst du Geld !!! Und das ist auch mit diese "Shit" Platte auch so !!!
**
Einer der grössten Schnäbbisongs der 80er überhaupt. Absolut batmanunwürdig (geiler Film übrigens) und voll dünnpfiffmässig platt produziert. Tafkap setzen!
*
Kommerz-Scheisse
***
etwa gleich schwach wie der film...
******
Kann den meisten Reviews hier nicht beipflichten , für was auch ?
Der Track ist absolut astreine und geile Ware von Prince. Auch geiles Gitarrensoli - lecker .
***
War ja seinerzeit eine immens wirkungsvolle Marketing-Symbiose - hier der schon im Vorfeld unglaublich gehypte erste Batman-Streifen, dort der Soundtrack des exzentrischen Musikgenies ...
Damals konnte ich mit dem Song gar nix anfangen, heute seh ich zwar gewisse "Ansätze", bin aber doch in 1. Linie überrascht, mit was für sperrigem Sound Prince hier bei den "Batman"-Machern durchgekommen ist ... obwohl, war ja verkaufstechnisch eh ein Selbstläufer ...

kleines Meisterwerk, kann aber auch die Leute verstehen, die es hassen ;)
***
Nicht schlecht, aber halt schon etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig...
*
Nein - kann ich überhaupt nichts anfangen mit.
******
Geil!
**
Hat bis auf das Intro viele Ähnlichkeiten mit "Kiss", ist aber noch schwächer. Und das war bei uns #1 und sein grösster Hit? *kopfschüttel*.
****
Finde den Titel recht gut.
******
arschgeil und zu recht #1. das video ebenso hammermässig..
*
noch schlechter als der film

Ja nicht der große Knüller!

in der tat ziemlich schwach. 2,5
******
geniales lied
**
Das ist ja gar kein richtiger Song und selbst für Prince unwürdig. Ganz mies. Und dann auch noch No.1? Allein schon das Gelächter geht mir dermassen auf die Nerven, dann die stetigen Unterbrüche und abrupten Wechsel... Einfach nur ganz schlecht.
*
Müll
*
Naja, Schade Prince war ja genial.
Was er sich bei den Song, woll gedacht hat.
*
erbärmlich,wer ohl diese cd gekauft hat,oh man
**
Ganz übel, das Stück hat er wohl bei Vollmond geschrieben.
****
Komisches Lied.
***
Geht so.
******
Auch nach fast 20 Jahren noch Kult!!!
******
Genial. Me encanta.
*
Das soll Musik sein???
*
Geht gar nicht...
***
Nein, auch der leider nicht.....
*****
Ultimate late 80's groove that set the seen for more funk from Prince!
****
Schräg von vorn bis hinten, nicht übel aber ein bisschen zu unkontrolliert für meinen Geschmack.
******
Toen ik deze plaat voor het eerst hoorde, dacht ik ''wat heeft Prince NU gemaakt''???????

Dit is een nummer waarvan je de achtergrond moet weten en je moet hem vaker gehoord hebben. Het nummer bestaat uit samples met stukjes tekst uit de film ''Batman'' (waarin Michael Keaton, Jack Nicholson en Kim Basinger de hoofdrol spelen). Bovendien heeft Prince het verhaal van de film op zijn eigenzinnige manier vertaald naar een origineel nummer!!!! Ik vind dit toch wel een klassieker, want de samples zijn op perfecte wijze ingekleed in dit nummer. Daar moet je een meester voor zijn en dat kan Prince als geen ander !!!!!!!

Finde es Mittelmäßig, aber auch nicht schlecht.

wenn man schon einen Namen im Popgeschäft hat kann man jeden Scheiß produzieren
**
kann damit auch nicht viel anfangen...
*
Certainly not for me. His biggest hit in New Zealand :-X

very messy and un-listenable
*****
Great blast from the past. I like the changes in pace during the song. Uniquely Prince.
*
das kleine, exzentrische Würstchen im Batman-Kostüm - einfach nur peinlich und lächerlich - Nagel für diesen Totalschrott!...wurde das eigentlich in Frankensteins Gruselkabinett produziert?...

Poor!
***
Blöder Song. Sehr unrythmisch, zu viel experimentiert. Sollten das mehrere Remixe im Mix sein. Solch ein Song hat fällt normalerweise durch. Aber als Soundtrackthema... *3-
***
Huch, endlich mal ein Prince-Song mit dem Notendurchschnitt, den ich mir für fast alle seine Werke wünsche? :)
Und dann hebe ich den Schnitt auch noch an, kuriose Welt...
Klar, ist fies amelodisch und bizarr, aber zu einer drei lasse ich mich gerne hinreißen.
**
A total mess of a song. I understand what Prince was trying to achieve but without the Batman movie, there is no way this song would have been as huge as it was. Borders on the unlistenable at times.
****
irgendwie cool weil es eben von prince ist

das video ist schon legendär

prince als extrem gutaussehnder joker :-)
******
... ich sehe da immer den Joker Jack Nicholson "pinselschwingend" durch's Museum tanzen, wenn ich den Song höre ...
... als Soundtrack einfach nur genial, ansonsten natürlich nix ... aber weil's so gut passt, gebe ich die Höchstwertung ...
*
Probably the worst Prince has ever done, together with Sexy MF.
****
BO du film "Batman" de 1989. Pas spécialement marquant.

Very Bad Dance.
*****
Totally random and completely addictive.
****
Klingt ein wenig zusammengeschustert - wie ein Song im Comic-Format - hatt ein paar interessante Elemente - kommt aber insgesamt zu weird rüber ... paßt dann aber umso mehr zum Film
**
2 stars
*****
Quite random, but interesting enough. I quite like it.
******
ziemlich geil! das war ein sehr neuer, einzigartiger song und ist bis heute irgendwie genial, war und ist sehr gut!!!
*****
Passt mir doch ganz gut - etwas verrückt, ja wilder als Prince ansonsten
***
Oh wut :P
***
Es hat Höhen und Tiefen. Die abgehenden Drums und die Gitarrenparts sind noch das beste. 3+

CDN: #1 (1 week), 1989
USA: #1 (1 week), 1989
**
Diese Nr.1 konnt ich auch nicht verstehen, aber das geht mir bei einigen Nr.1 Songs so. Hat mir wirklich nie gefallen und wenn ichs heute höre, geht`s mir da nicht viel anders!
War in den italienischen Jahrecharts 1989 sogar die #3, obwohl es der Song "nur" auf #2 dort schaffte!

Nee, geht gar nicht. Nervt und hat keine gute Melodie. Tiefpunkt der 80er!
*
unsäglich
****
Zu der Zeit, als der Song in den Charts abging und rauf und runter lief, fand ich ihn ganz furchtbar - inzwischen kann ich ihm etwas abgewinnen, mindestens interessant, einige Teile sogar recht gelungen. Insgesamt eine solide 4.
****
Gut!
**
Da hatte 1989 aber viel interessantere Songs zu bieten als dieses krude Etwas, das mir schon vor 27 Jahren wenig gegeben hat. Wird mit den Jahren nicht besser.
*****
...crazy little man, mit diesem crazy Titel - teils geheimnisvolles Geplauder, laute, freche, aufdringliche aber starke Gitarren, mal preschende Rhythmen und dann wieder eine Gemütlichkeit, die wohl beruhigend wirken soll, machen dieses "kleine Theaterstück" zu einem coolen Hörerlebnis ...crazy little man: Rest in Peace...
*
Minable.
****
Interesting song by Prince. UK#2 and Ireland#2.
******
genial und hier völlig verkannt, sein Bester Streich.
**
Schlecht!

Das ist keine Musik für mich.
