What are your thoughts on "Batdance (The Batmix)"?

I grew to love this remix. It was done by William Orbit (more known for his association with Madonna).

Your thoughts?

I prefer the Vickie Vale Mix over this one.

Correct - Orbit remixed The Future and Electric Chair, released together on a cd single.

I haven’t heard a Batman-era remix that I didn’t enjoy, though I agree with kingricefan: The Vickie Vale mix is a little better.

Dope track, it's practically a remix of "Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic".

Keep your headphones on.

Kudos for the Hijack mention. 👍

The Orbit Future/Electric Chair remixes are excellent. It would be interesting to get the full story on the collab. Very rare for P to turn over his music in this fashion.

At the time of release I remember liking it a lot because it was the first Prince single that got an authentic club remix.

My favorite remix of the song never got an official release though--the John Luongo remix featuring Big Daddy Kane.

This song was a hit back then and people still love it. However, I never understood the appeal. I'm up for mindless fun, but there's nothing about that song that seems uniquely Prince. I'm glad he paid some bills with that song but it's always been a bunch of samples advertising, and now memorializing, the movie. Project-wise, songs like The Future and Partyman.. those songs are great.

I absolutely love this mix. Was blown away by it when it came out - wish it had heralded a new dawn of him working with good outside producers / remixers...
