Workout Song #1 - Barbastella

I love comic books. I started collecting in 1989 when Tim Burton's Batman movie was in theaters. Still collect comics today but I'm more Marvel than DC but I still love Batman and consider 2005's Batman Begins and 2008's The Dark Knight as two of the greatest comic book movies ever. One of the things I love most about those movies is the score by Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard. My favorite piece is Barbastella. It's from Batman Begins when Bruce conquers his fear of bats when he goes into the well that he fell in as a child and discovers the huge cave below.

The music slowly builds until the climax at the end when Bruce stands up to his fear. I start with this music during my 5-minute warmup walk. By the end of the piece I'm motivated and ready to run. The first link is the clip from the movie and then the entire piece of music.
