I'd say Pop, because not only is the sound sort of in keeping with the direction Pop went, but the lyrical theme seems to fit in with some of the themes tackled on Pop, such as The Playboy Mansion.

That being said, I think that a song like Babyface is sort of in that same wheelhouse, so Zooropa would probably have been an equally good place for it to go. I have no idea what the theme has to do with anything in Batman Forever, though. I don't really remember any part of that movie tackling the struggles of being a celebrity and being worshipped by the public.

Batman and Bruce Wayne were both of these things imo. The struggle would be more to do with the identity issues Bruce has etc.

That seems a bit of a stretch to me.  The song seems pretty solidly in the "Bono writing about himself being famous/Parallels of Jesus Christ and celebrity stardom" category.  "They want their money back if you're alive at 33", "Turning tricks with your crucifix", etc.  But the strings give the song a nice gothic feel that works as a Batman song.

I remember being excited to see the video to see what new direction they might be going in.  I loved it, but was maybe a little disappointed that it was just rehashing Zoo TV rather than marking a new direction for them.

Went with SBS, NYD, and Surrender.  But 40 and Drowning Man are strong contenders.
