That Time The Who Recorded The ‘Batman’ Theme

The Who recorded a cover of the Batman theme in 1966. It was originally released on the EP Ready Steady Who, but has since been re-released as a bonus track on CD pressings of A Quick One. Composed by Neal Hefti, who is humorously credited with “word and music”, the song is built around a guitar hook with a twelve bar blues progression, using only three chords until the coda.
