- Cat People was released shortly after Under Pressure. Another
underrated masterpiece, this time from the soundtrack of the movie

Giorgio Moroder is normally such a dominant talent but he scarcely
gets a look in as David unleashes his most theatrical voice to
devastating effect: great lyrics and a great film.
