It was May 28, 1983, and almost everyone who had seen the movie and heard the song was dreaming of dancing and becoming popular. What song am I talking about? It was Irene Cara’s song “Flashdance (What a Feeling)” which rose to the top of the U.S. pop charts on this day. Irene Cara became popular through the 1980 movie “Fame”. From this movie came two Oscar-nominated songs for her. One was the title song “Fame” and the other was “Out There on My Own”.
The movie “Fame” also inspired many young people to attempt to become stars. However, for Irene Cara, the biggest success came from her work on the movie “Flashdance”.
