NADS AWARDS 20-10: Best Music To Read Comics By: The Batman And Robin Remix
Me, I read with the stereo on, and when a song matches the book I'm reading, I think 'Crikey!' - and even write posts like this.
Grant Morrison and Frazer Irving's run on Batman and Robin, read like the Vertigo book the editors didn't see slip through to the printers. With Joker dancing with a bridal corpse, bizarre sexual fetishes, Pyg, and Robin's interrogation skills, the brilliantly twisted arc was one iconic number that will go down in bat-history.
Meanwhile another pairing over in the world of music were exploring similar themes, with rock legend, Slash and Black Eyed Pea, Fergie's Beautiful Dangerous. The track's original video was deemed to hot for airing in the U.S., but what do you know, it airs just fine here on IADW.
Now replay that as you read this remix of scenes from Batman and Robin, and you'll see that when Slash was writing the licks for his little hit, a debauched Joker may not have been all that far from his mind.
