One of my favorite singers in the rock/pop genre has and always will be late INXS singer Michael Hutchence. It was a shame that he passed away because he could have been a bigger star than he was. Neverthless, when the producers were making Batman Forever, which is the version that features Val Kilmer as Batman as he battles The Riddler (Jim Carey) and Two Face (Tommy Lee Jones), they wanted to make the film more pop than it was. The producers brought in the likes of U2, Brandy, Seal, Method Man, Nick Cave, The Flaming Lips, and todays soundtrack saturday star Michael Hutchence who covers Iggy Pop’s The Passenger. The Passenger is one of the most covered tracks from Iggy Pop’s album Lust For Life and Hutchence delivers an amazing performance. The result from the list of guys featured on the album was that the album became a huge hit as it almost sold as many as Prince’s Batman 1989 Soundtrack. Check it out below:
