U2 - Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me

Sometimes, the soundtrack to a film is almost deemed as important, if not equally so, to the film itself. Batman Forever still receives mixed opinions to this day (though it is a personal favorite of yours truly), but the soundtrack in the 90s was stellar and marketed as the next coming. U2's contribution, HOLD ME, THRILL ME, KISS ME, KILL ME captures the themes and undertones brilliantly. A hint of seduction, mystery, and action that only a 90s green-wearing Jim Carrey could love. Lyrics aside, the rhythm and vocals line up perfectly to underscore the Bat film that the studios wanted desperately to erase memories of the previous adult outing with the penguin. If you haven't heard this one in awhile...refresh your bat-senses.
