This section was removed, as virtually all of the items in it were obscure and non-notable. --♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 07:48, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Other appearances[edit]

Wasn't this song in Scarface too? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.134.171.184 (talk) 09:16, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Maniac (1980) film[edit]

The song was originally written for the Joe Spinell film Maniac (1980) I believe the original chorus was written as "There's a maniac on the loose". it was not used in the film and eventually used in Flashdance with some lyrical changes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 97.103.144.2 (talk) 19:25, 13 September 2013 (UTC)

Slower, orchestral version[edit]

In the album The Lost Years, at track 7 you can listen to a slower, orchestral version of Maniac, complete with string ensemble. --201.223.85.24 (talk) 04:34, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
