Bossa Nova Hotel is the debut album of rock singer/guitarist Michael Sembello. The album contained ten tracks including the smash hit "Maniac" from the motion picture Flashdance, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 on September 1983. The album itself peaked at #80 on the Billboard 200. "Automatic Man" and "Talk" were the other singles released from the album. "Automatic Man" had three other versions released on an LP and 45 single (which were the Extended mix, Instrumental mix and Single Version). The version of "Maniac" that appeared on the soundtrack to Flashdance is different from the one that appears on this album. "Maniac" also had remixed and instrumental versions of the song.
Singer Marilyn Scott covered the song "First Time" on her 1983 album Without Warning.
