Any story on why he chose William Orbit to remix it?

Not in 1989.

Didn't Mark Moore throw him in the mix? They both remixed Batdance together some months earlier, and given that Batdance was partly influenced by Moore's S'Express, I'd assume Prince first reached out to Moore.

Yes.
In this interview Moore says he knew P had listened to S’Express when he heard Alphabet St (This Is Not Music, This Is A Trip)

Yes! Good catch.

You also worked alongside William Orbit on the Batman soundtrack by Prince, how did that come about?

I tracked down William to remix my track Hey Music Lover. I loved his Torch Song stuff and his solo albums and he’s always been one of my favourite producers. He ended up sending me cassettes of all these amazing bits and loops he’d done of the track but he’d been up for days and needed help editing them all together in a way that made sense. We ended up editing the mix together down the phone!

With Prince, I knew he’d been listening to S’Express when I heard This Is Not Music, This Is A Trip on the b-side of Alphabet St. He called up and said he’d like to have me remix some of the tracks from his soundtrack for the Batman film. I immediately called up William and we carried on working together on more remixes after that, my fave being Malcolm McClaren’s Deep In Vogue. Malcolm introduced us to the New York voguing scene and we got to sample the movie Paris Is Burning long before it came out or anyone had seen it.

Right about the dates. Ørbit hadn't worked with Madonna by 1989, and it's unlikely he worked with her in any fashion before Ray of Light which came out in 1998. The latest project of hers would have been Like A Prayer, then soon after Dick Tracy and Blond Ambition Tour. Those remixes were still in Shep & maybe Junior zones. That's not to say he wasn't around doing his thing. It'd be interesting to know how he got to remix both of those songs.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Orbitt did the TF remix and the remix edit... I have them 12, 45, 5, CS and Moore did the Batdance mixes... TF mix was release 29 ywars ago in Europe and BD 30... wow and I must be getting older

I think he did a remix of Justify My Love so that would be their first indirect collaboration, but still a year after the Batman mixes.
