And the Favorite Batman is: Adam West

The song "Adam West" to came to mind today. I hadn't heard it in years. I think I first heard it was back when the 1989 movie Batman was released. As I recall I was watching the CBS Morning show when they were interviewing Adam West, Cesar Romero, and Burgess Meredith about the new movie and they played "Adam West" as the lead in.

Bat Fans will remember the controversy of Tim Burton casting Michael Keaton as the Caped Crusader. Even though Adam West's version is what made me a Bat Fan and I thought the casting of Michael Keaton was going to be a disaster, I think it worked out in the end.

I decided to look it up and was surprised to learn that this song was written by Bat Fan Wally Wingert. Wally Wingert is a voice actor and can be heard in everything from Family Guy to the video game Batman: Arkham Asylum, as the voice of the Riddler. The song is a parody of the song "Wild, Wild, West" by the Escape Club. Check it out. It's quite clever.
