If bats had a theme song what would it be? Bat out of Hell? Bat Country? Bats in the Belfry? There are so, so many choices. I guess the theme song might depend on the bat. Would a fruit bat like a lighter, happier song or a vampire bat might like something dark and spooky and a large gray bat, maybe something a little more goth? Given a choice, what would their theme songs be?
One of the most well known bat songs is Bat Out Of Hell by Meatloaf. There are hundreds more. Bats also turn up in children’s songs and poetry. Maybe poetry will be another post.
What is your favourite bat song?
Here are some links to lists of bat songs, incase you want to give a listen.

Important: Do not handle bats. They can carry the rabies virus. Only those who have been properly vaccinated and have knowledge of bats should be handling them. If you find a bat in your home call a bat rescue. Do not call an exterminator, call a rescue. Bats are important for our environment. I have links below for rescues.
