Catalog Number: 811492-1-M-1

Vinyl plays nicely (play-tested). Cover looks great; a few creases near edges, light-scuffing (front/back). Inner sleeve is original (plastic), one seam is split. Spine is easy-to-read, with mild-wear. Minor shelf-wear along top/bottom-edge; wear to corners – especially top-right corner. Opening is crisp with signs of light use. (Not a cut-out.)

Flashdance is a 1983 American romantic drama film directed by Adrian Lyne. It was the first collaboration of producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer and the presentation of some sequences in the style of music videos was an influence on other 1980s films, including Top Gun (1986), Simpson and Bruckheimer's most famous production. Flashdance opened to negative reviews by professional critics, but was a surprise box office success, becoming the third highest grossing film of 1983 in the U.S. It had a worldwide box-office gross of more than $100 million. Its soundtrack spawned several hit songs, among them Maniac performed by Michael Sembello and the Academy Award–winning Flashdance... What a Feeling, performed by Irene Cara, which was written for the film. Flashdance... What a Feeling was performed by Irene Cara, who also sang the title song for the similar 1980 film Fame. The music for Flashdance... What a Feeling was composed by Giorgio Moroder, and the lyrics were written by Keith Forsey and Irene Cara. The song won an Academy Award for Best Original Song, as well as a Golden Globe and numerous other awards. It also reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in May 1983. Despite the song's title, the word "Flashdance" itself is not heard in the lyrics. The song is used in the opening title sequence of the film, and is the music Alex uses in her dance audition routine at the end of the film. Another song used in the film, Maniac, was also nominated for an Academy Award. It was written by Michael Sembello and Dennis Matkosky. A popular urban legend holds that the song was originally written for the 1980 horror film Maniac, and that lyrics about a killer on the loose were rewritten so the song could be used in Flashdance. The legend is discredited in the special features of the film's DVD release, which reveal that the song was written for the film, although only two complete lyrics ("Just a steel town girl on a Saturday night" and "She's a maniac") were available when filming commenced. Like the title song, it reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in September 1983. Other songs in the film include Lady, Lady, Lady, performed by Joe Esposito, Gloria and Imagination performed by Laura Branigan, and I'll Be Here Where The Heart Is, performed by Kim Carnes. The soundtrack album of Flashdance sold 700,000 copies during its first two weeks on sale and has gone on to sell over 6,000,000 copies in the US alone. In 1984, the album won the Grammy Award for Best Album of Original Score Written for A Motion Picture or a Television Special.
