Back to raiding the memory of my mother’s 45s, all the way back to 1966… and here we find Neal Hefti’s Batman Theme. On the flip side is a waaayyy groovier take on the theme, Batman Chase.
And hey, guess what, here’s two more versions, courtesy of The Who (also from 1966), and The Jam (released 1977, with a way tight, more uptempo, and much rockinger take on the theme).
Rest In Peace, Neal.
