FlinterFile: Michael Sembello- Maniac
In 1983, Dennis Matkosky and Michael Sembello wrote a big hit for the movie Flashdance. The whole song started with Matkosky watching the movie Maniac, which was about a serial killer. The song he wrote was inappropriate for the movie, but thanks to Phil Ramone, who heard the song and wanted it to be used for Flashdance, the lyrics were changed. He produced the song and the movie made it a big hit, number 1 in the US! Enjoy
