Comics & Flashdance

So I worked some more on my standee & did some more with getting comics ready for SPACE this weekend. That will probably be more or less the story of the next several days. So I might not bother to do blog entries as they’d be boring even by my standards.

I got an email from Music Supervisor (a music placement library) today that included this story I thought you might like.
“As songwriters ourselves, we can’t tell you how many times we’ve penned songs for a movie or TV show, without getting the placement, but then, that song ended up being used in something else. & making money later.
A prime example in music history was “Maniac” written by Michael Sembello. Originally written for a 1980 horror flick of the same name, the original lyrics were: “He’s a maniac, maniac that’s for sure. He will kill your cat & nail him to the door.” When selected for the film Flashdance & the soundtrack album, Sembello changed the lyrics to: “She’s a maniac, maniac on the floor. & she’s dancing like she’s never danced before.” The song & Flashdance soundtrack eventually reached #1 in the Billboard charts, won a Grammy, & went on to become one of the biggest soundtrack singles in history.”

    the flashdance version is definitely a better rhyme.
