Batman Forever: Music from the Motion Picture is the 1995 soundtrack to the motion picture Batman Forever.


Only five of the songs are actually featured in the movie. Hit singles from the soundtrack include "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" by U2 and "Kiss from a Rose" by Seal, both of which were nominated for MTV Movie Awards. "Kiss from a Rose" (whose video was also directed by Joel Schumacher) reached #1 in the US charts as well. The soundtrack itself was an attempt to (in producer Peter MacGregor-Scott's words) make the film more "pop". The soundtrack was hugely successful, selling almost as many copies as Prince's 1989 Batman album. A second release, featuring over 40 minutes of Elliot Goldenthal's Original Motion Picture Score, was released two weeks after the soundtrack album.

Accolades Edit

In 1996, "Kiss from a Rose" won three Grammy Awards for best male pop vocal performance, record of the year and song of the year. The album also reached no. 5 on the US top 200 charts.
