Batman Theme

 

  • First appeared on: Neal Hefti: Batman Theme single (1966), also included on the album Batman Theme and 11 Other Bat Songs (1966), but primarily known as the title theme music for the Batman TV series, which began airing January 1966
  • Trivia: Although performed live for the first time in 2016, Prince has stated that this is the first song he learned to play on piano, at the age of seven (which, if true, would place that in the first part of 1966, soon after the show began airing). So he learned to play the music 50 years prior to playing it in concert for the first time.
  • Composed by: Neal Hefti



Performed by Prince
28 February 2016 (show 1): Paramount Theatre, Oakland, CA, USA
  • Played live in: 2016 (solo piano version)
