"The Arms of Orion" is a slow, romantic duet written by Sheena Easton, performed with Prince from the 1989 Batmansoundtrack.[1] Released as the third single from the soundtrack, the song was a top 40 hit in the US, peaking at No. 36 on the Billboard Hot 100.[citation needed]

"The Arms of Orion" is a ballad that is accompanied mainly by the piano. Synthesizers also play a strong role throughout the song, programmed to emulate a string section. The track also uses a subdued drum machine loop, and samples of rain and thunder. The lyrics allude to the constellation of Orion, implying that the arms of the figure in the sky are wide enough to hold him and his lover together, although the lovers are far apart.[citation needed]
