Batman, Revolution, Kiss Me/Kill Me, Drive B-side, Sen Pat Leahy, Mayor Chuck Searcy etc

Thanks to Chuck Searcy, the mayor of Hanoi, there’s a significant Batman anniversary coming up soon, which reminded me of this little ditty from years ago:
 
 
Can’t remember the exact story but I think it was a song that probably not gonna make Automatic or Monster, and Batman the movie was looking for songs.
 
BTW U2 also had one of their best underrated songs in that film that is still a staple highlight of their shows, the catchily-titled “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me”:
 
 
They must have had a bigger video budget– haha! That’s a cool way to make a rock video– according to the Internet: Bono described it as being about “being in a rock band” and “being a star”
 
I guess so:
 
“Dressing like your sister
Living like a tart
They don’t know what you’re doing
Babe, it must be art
You’re a headache, in a suitcase
You’re a star”
 
And then there was also this from the time,
 
 
“Winged Mammal Theme was the B-side for first AFTP single, Drive. So it had to be in that interesting 1992-1994-ish era
 
The End.
 
PS: the Chuck Searcy link that started me up this rabbit pole this morning, about his old war buddy Pat Leahy, the stalwart US Senator from Vermont
 
 
“The prosecutor turned senior lawmaker was born just one year after the Caped Crusader, in 1940, and by age 4 was checking out books at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library near his Montpelier, Vt., home. By third grade, he says, he had read all of Charles Dickens and Robert Louis Stevenson, yet it was the prose and pictures of Batman creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger that especially captivated him.”
