Bring back the original!

Post by Nyarlathotep »

Just read something interesting about that old ‘80s song “Maniac” (from Flashdance)
The song was included in Flashdance after Sembello's wife accidentally included it on a tape sent to executives at Paramount Pictures who were looking for music to use in the film.[2] Sembello had originally written the song as a horror theme after watching a slasher film (possibly 1980's Maniac) with lyrics such as "He's a maniac, maniac, that's for sure / He will kill your cat and nail it to the door." Producer Phil Ramone convinced Sembello to write new lyrics to reflect the film's subject matter
I want to know who I have to kill to get them to release the song with the original lyrics.

Thought that was well known.

I recall even Kasey "This is a Special Hello Sent to the Woman I have Abducted" Kaseem mentioning it.

I didn’t know it until I found it in the middle of a Wikipedia Death Spiral (tm)
