I also had the Batman soundtrack and I do remember the songs not in the movie being better. I remember the merchandise more than anythjng. The t-shirts, the leather necklaces with the bat symbol, fast food toys, etc. I loved the movie as a teenager, but not so much when I revisited it a few years ago. I also for some reason felt it and Batman Returns were more violent than the Nolan Batman movies. Vicki Vale was Billi from Temple of Doom-annoying. And Michelle was dating Michael. Would never put them together. Interesting.

I remember the merchandising very well too. It was everywhere…as was Prince’s Batman soundtrack. You couldn’t escape it.
