Did You Know: “Flashdance (What a Feeling)” By Irene Cara
On ‘Tickets @ 2’ today it’s movie music, the title song to the movie Flashdance, one of the first movies centered around the music. As more people watched MTV, it became easier and more acceptable to integrate pop songs into films. This led to movies like Footloose and Dirty Dancing.
It won the 1983 Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and an Oscar for Best Film Song. Irene co-wrote the song with Giorgio Moroder and Keith Forsey.
When the movie came out the soundtrack quickly sold out in stores.
We’ll take caller # 13 when it plays between two & three for tickets to the 2011 Nascar Sprint ‘All-Star’ Race & Viewing party at K-1 Speed Indoor Go-Karting in Torrance; 1-800-232-KRTH (5784).
