    I am trying to identify a song in the 1989 Batman.

    The song can be heard in the scene where the Joker comes into the Museum/ Art Gallery and destroys everything. The song occurs right after he sits down with the female reporter and plays the song on the portable boom-box.

    Not the Prince song, but the one heard on the boom-box after he sits down at the table with the female reporter.

    It's instrumental.

    I know the "Batman" music pretty well. Once Prince's "Partyman" finishes playing, and Joker sits down with Vicki Vale, it then goes into an excerpt from "A Summer Place" (I forget the composer's name offhand). Hope that helps! [​IMG]

    Douglas, as a thirteen year old in 1960, who spent many hours glued to the portable radio, I can tell you that Percy Faith Orchestra's "Theme from 'A Summer Place'" was a monster hit - #1 on the charts for about 9 straight weeks, it finished as the #1 song of 1960 beating out several Elvis Presley hits and a dance phenomenon song called "The Twist" by Chubby Checker.
