Bring back the original!

Post by Nyarlathotep » Thu Dec 13, 2018 5:08 am

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.

So the parody shtick me and my buddies used to do on that song was in fact a reconstruction of the original. :lmao:

Thought that was well known.

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