Winged Mammal Theme
While the movie "Batman Returns" was in production, the producers asked rock bands to submit potential themes for the movie. R.E.M.'s entry was rejected but turned up as "Winged Mammal Theme." The high distorted voice heard during the "verses" of the song is actually saying "Batman!" [Joshua Hall-Bachner]
  First song: Wolves, Lower
