Dance With The Devil is an unreleased track recorded in February 1989, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during initial sessions for the Batman movie and accompanying Batman soundtrack album). The song is based around the phrase "You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?", used in the movie by The Joker (recited by Jack Nicholson as 'The Joker' and by Hugo Blick as 'Jack Napier'), which is sampled during the track. This was later sampled in Batdance, but is not considered a sample of this track as it originates from the movie. The song contains sampled dialogue from the film (the cathedral scene where The Joker dances with Vicki Vale). Samples of the Gregorian chant initially used in 21-24 (The Dopamine Rush Suite) can also be heard in this song.
The track is long and suite-like, containing several separate sections, including a classical synth run similar to the ending of When Doves Cry. It was included as the ninth and final track on a March 1989, configuration of the Batman album. Prince felt the track was too dark, however, and while it was on a configuration together with Batdance after that was recorded in mid-to-late March it didn’t make the final cut of the album and remains unreleased. A line lifted from the song "Don't dance with the devil in the pale moonlight. The curious try and always die" was included in the liner notes of the Batman album.
