Soundtrack – Batman – Danny Elfman

Batman One word: Fantastic! This one goes right up there with John WIlliams’ Superman: The Movie as one of the best CBM soundtracks ever.  Danny Elfman created the perfect theme for Tim Burton’s vision of Batman. And that Anvil…I can remember when this was first released how music critics kept talking about Elfman’s use of an anvil as a musical instrument. Superb!!

Highlights: 1) The Batman Theme, 10) Descent into Mystery, 15) Charge of the Batmobile, 16) Attack of the Batwing, 20) Finale, and 21) Batman Theme Reprise…yes, i know each of those focuses solely on Batman. Joker’s music was fitting for Jack Nicholson’s take on the villain.
