Prince: That Guy That Worked On A Batman Film Before “The Dark Knight”

Prince Rodgers Nelson is his name and he is from Minneapolis, Minnesota...yes Minnesota Viking territory. Is he a Minnesota Viking? Well, I don’t know about all that but he is most certainly a great guitarist and singer. And he has no association with the mega-hit Batman film “The Dark Knight”, but that isn’t all of what this post is about, it’s about Prince himself.

I been planinng to make a post about Prince for a long time, but somehow I never did. Prince is one of my favorite recording artist and this is certainly a enjoyable post. Prince created music for “Batman”, the first Batman movie, released in 1989, directed by Tim Burton., starring Michael Keaton, Jack Nicholson and Kim Basinger. Now look at the franchise Batman has become, sequel after sequel...box office hit after box office hit. DC Comics created a new cinematic category - superheroe films - and today we see a non-stop issuance of these type of films, with rival Marvel at the head.


Prince didn’t supply any music for the current Batman blockbuster “The Dark Knight”, and it seems to be no less without it, it’s breaking box office records. Sorrowfully though, the catalyst for this film’s success seems to be the untimely death of one its main actors, Heath Ledger who played the Joker in “The Dark Knight”. Though his acting was superb, the attention surrounding his death was the reason for the films phenomenal intial success.


The purple lover, Prince is a very handsome, sexy singer who flatters and attracts women with his Pied Piper-like music and performances. I loved this man’s music since I first heard of him. I have his early music and his later releases, I gotta have my Prince. I want to express my gradtitude for the powerful music he has made, and the strong image he provides for any struggling musician out here. Prince believed in himself and so should you. I wasn’t a fan of singers holding guitars until I saw Prince, he made handling that axe seem so awesome. He made me feel his love for the guitar, it was not an instrument but an extention of his very self. I’m a dancer and we dancer hate holding instruments but Prince made me change my mind about playing the duitar, he looks so exciting when he plays his tool.



I urge each and everyone of you to give this music god a thorough listen, listen to “Purple Rain”, listen to some of his earlier joints - then you will see that this guy is worthy of the successful career he has had. Let the Purple One rule, he is a good king.

Did someone say Prince? Sorry I'm late. :-)

Most people I know either absolutely love him or have no idea what to think of him. I tell them to forget about his stage antics & costumes & listen to the music. I've introduced plenty of Prince tunes to people who thought they didn't like his music. I'm happy to say... they were converted.
