Listen to: Michael Sembello with Maniac (1983)
Hello again and welcome to WLCY Radio Hits. I'm Fidel Benitez Corrales and now you will listen to Michael Sembello with Maniac, It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks beginning on September 10, 1983, and is one of the highest-grossing songs ever written for a film. In addition to producing "Maniac", Phil Ramone produced the song that would dethrone it from the top spot, Billy Joel's "Tell Her About It". The Original Soundtrack of Flashdance won the 1983 Grammy Award for Best Album of Original Score Written for A Motion Picture or a Television Special.




The song was nominated for an Academy Award. Another song from the film, "Flashdance... What a Feeling" performed by Irene Cara, won the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1983.
