D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Oh no! Batman Again?

djnew

Oh yes!

Ever since I, D.J. David B., began bringing you comics tunes on Tuesdays, I’ve been presenting an occasional selection from my wide variety of Bat-tunes (starting back on Tuesday, October 23, 2007 to be exact). I won’t repeat what I’ve said before about the Batman TV show of 1966 being the biggest thing since sliced bread or that it inspired more comics-oriented songs than anything before or since. Oh wait, I just did.

No nipples on this bat suit!

Long before he was the grim, gritty Dark Knight, Batman was portrayed on TV as a shape in a cape by Adam West. Spend some time in a gym before putting on spandex? Not this caped crusader. This was the Sixties and things were done differently back then.

Anyway, here we are again with a nice twist on the whole Batman phenomenon. This time it’s Batman himself, Adam West, with a song called The Story of Batman, for some reason.

Enjoy this bat-tacular record simply by clicking the link below.

    The one I’ve been waiting for someone- anyone!- to post is a 45 Adam West did, a comedy-romance thing called “Miranda”
    Oh, I’ll do anything for you, Miranda
    I’ll do just anything you ask
    I’ll beat all the bad guys for you, Miranda,
    But please don’t ask me to remove my mask!
    (it’s against the Code of Heroes)
    and so on.
    They used to play it on the AM station in north MN constantly during the TV show years.

  2. D.J. David B. Says:

    Great suggestion! That rare record is in my vast archive, natch. We don’t usually take requests here at Comics Tunes HQ but I’ll try to schedule that for a future Tuesday. And the Bat-hits just keep coming!

  3. Jim Thompson Says:

    Do you have the Miranda b-side “You Only See Her” in MP3? I’m a Batfan since 1966 and this find is new to me, now I’d like to get the b-side!! (bat-side?) If you can help, thanks! My email is here.

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
