Prince - Partyman (Official Music Video)

-

"Partyman" is a song by Prince from his 1989 Batman album, and the follow-up to his number one hit, "Batdance". The song is one of the few on the album that is prominently featured in the film, accompanying the scene in which the Joker and his minions gleefully deface the exhibits in the Gotham City Art Museum before meeting Vicki Vale. The bassline shares great similarities to Talking Loud and Saying Nothing by James Brown.The song's chant "young and old, gather round;everybody hail the new king in town" follows the same rhythm from the 1986 outtake "Rebirth of The Flesh".

The song became the only Batman single to perform better in the UK, where it peaked at number 14, as opposed to the US (where it peaked at number 18). The upbeat and humorous number features horn samples and Prince's sped-up "Camille" vocals, as well as a vocal performance by Anna Fantastic. The 12" single extends the song to about six minutes in length (labeled as the "Video Mix"), and features the B-side "Feel U Up", a previously unreleased Camille track which would later be available on The Hits/The B-Sides compilation.

The song's accompanying music video, directed by Albert "Al" Magnoli, again presents Prince's "Gemini" persona dressed in a "half-Joker" costume.
