This week I'm spotlighting two songs featured in The LEGO Batman Movie which I saw last Saturday.  The movie was a lot of fun, if you haven't seen it yet, and it has a pretty great soundtrack.

"Who's The (Bat)Man" by Patrick Stump - This is Batman's theme song which is in the beginning of the movie - and I'd say that it perfectly fits LEGO Batman!  Be sure to pay attention to the lyrics - they get pretty funny!  Here are a few gems: "Who does the sickest back flips? Batman!" "Turn Two-Face to Black-And-Blue Face", "I 100% am not Bruce Wayne", "Who could choke hold a bear? Batman!" and "Who never skips leg day? Batman!"  It's even better when you realize it's performed by Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy!



"Friends are Family" by Oh, Hush, Will Arnett, and Jeff Lewis - You'll want to stay for the end credits for this one - it's a lot of fun and it's The LEGO Batman Movie's answer to "Everything is Awesome!" from The LEGO Movie.  Will Arnett gets a rap as Batman and Alfred even gets a guitar solo!  The song definitely fits Robin's bubbly, excitable personality.

  1. I've heard that this is the best onscreen adaptation of Batman ever. That it takes everything in the comics, all the "lore" of Batman and everything that the comics say he can do and puts it in the movie.

    1. I think that my favorites are still the Christopher Nolan movies a little more, but LEGO Batman is 100% the most fun! :D
