Product Description

Product Description

You'll be dancing like you've never danced before well, since 1983, anyway. The #1 multi-platinum soundtrack to Flashdance is back, digitally remastered and featuring the Oscar-winning #1 hit Flashdance What a Feeling Irene Cara; the Oscar-nominated #1 hit Maniac Michael Sembello; Lady, Lady, Lady Joe Esposito, and songs from Donna Summer, Kim Carnes, Laura Branigan and more.

Amazon.ca

Véritable créateur, en 1975, du disco avec "I Feel Love" interprété par Dona Summer, Giorgio Moroder trouva en Midnight Express puis Flashdance en 1983 matière à exprimer son génie pour la musique "dance" au cinéma. Plusieurs titres atteignirent les sommets des classements mondiaux dont le funky "Maniac" mais c'est avec "What A Feeling" que le compositeur allemand démontra toute sa classe. Sur des images léchées montrant une Jennifer Beals aussi gymnaste que virtuose du ballet, "What A Feeling" fit d'Irene Cara une star mondiale. Mais Flashdance, c'est aussi tout un environnement électronique au service d'un film parfaitement ciblé. De morceau en morceau, nous est remémoré le "son" des années 80 en même temps qu'une totale frivolité révolue. Une musique vivifiante que l'on fredonne sans pouvoir s'arrêter. Didier Leprêtre --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Audio CD
I have owned this soundtrack in first cassette, then vinyl, now on c.d. format. What I would have hoped for in the remastered version was the classic extended versions of some of these tracks radio stations use to play when Flashdance was hot ! Tracks like What A Feeling, Maniac, and a couple of others had some remarkable extended counterparts which are now completely difficult to find.Flashdance did not conform to the "breakdancing" period like other movies or soundtracks did. It was pop-rock at it's best before the Top Gun soundtrack.The only artist to still carry some weight after all these years is Donna Summer.Everyone else is just a faint memory. Where's Kim Carnes ? Michael Sembello? Laura Brannigan? and let's not forget the blue-eyed soulful voice of Joe "Bean" Esposito who was a soothing cross between Michael McDonald and a lightweight version of Barry White on Lady, Lady, Lady.
There is very little difference in the remastered version with regards to sonic quality. The sound level is a little bit higher with a little more bass and a little more treble. Otherwise, nothing that could be considered a revelation ...

"What a Feeling!" by Irene CARA!!!

It made the film FLASHDANCE a monster success, and also went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Too bad the song "Gloria" by Laura Brannigan is not on this soundtrack, because it was in the film.

When Flashdance the movie came out i was only 13 and now 18 years later i still love listening to the original soundtrack.The songs for me were motivating and they allowed me to dream and to be myself.The songs "Flashdance" and "Imagination" are really inspiring with their"you can do it no matter what"lyrics and the beautiful love songs are just that-BEAUTIFUL!Lyrics such as"running like the wind thoughts can come undone,Dancing behind masks just subtle pantomime"from Lady,Lady,Lady,or "it's just a song that just keeps playing on the radio and you know i haven't seen you for a while" from-I'll Be Here Where The Heart Is.The soundtrack is a classic and will always be.It's amazing!

I can still recall seeing this movie when it was first released. I was so impressed with the music that I drove to the record store to buy the LP. I taped the album onto a cassette so I could listen to it while driving and exercising. The cassette eventually broke. My turntable also broke so I couldn't listen to the LP. I needed my "Flashdance" fix so I purchased the CD. I hadn't heard the CD in a couple of years, but listening to it brought back the same kind of excitment as when I first heard it. Like "Saturday Night Fever," this one has staying power. I guess I'll have to buy the DVD movie.

Here we go with some more nostalgia, and probably scenes from the movie will flash before your eyes. But if we focus on the artists who made the background, the movie pulsates with action.
With artists like Laura Branigan, Irene Cara, Kim Carnes, Joe Esposito, Karen Kamon, and Michael Sembello, to name a few, we can see how these following cuts became so popular:
Imagination
Flashdance
I'll be where the Heart Is
Manhunt
Maniac, and others. Truly remarkable. Try dancing to Maniac, and tell me if you're exhausted after.
A nice collection for audiophiles. And recommended!!!!

Throughout the nineties there was a biblical flood of movie soundtracks, most of them bland and irrelevant,just simple packages of different artists put together in the hope of making a few more bucks;it's not the case here-actually,this soundtrack far surpasses the forgettable film.Great performances fron Irene Cara,Donna Summer,Michael Sembello and others.While the new soundtracks,besides promoting songs you never hear in the film,keep reusing old tunes,this album is a collection of entirely fresh (for that time)songs which is very honest and commendable.

Amazing! one of the best cd's out there, still 18 years after the first release.
It's full of energy, and makes you feel good. Great for audiophiles!! you will get more than one favorite song.
Buy it, you will never regret it.
A very deserved award for Irene Cara for "What a feeling".
The success of this entire cd will be hardly repeated again.
A cd that will be always treasured, and if you haven't seen the movie, go ahead still rocks.
