I've been going crazy trying to get a version of this song, it's called "Strong as I am" by The Prime Movers. It was featured on the sound track to Manhunter back in ...1986...I think.

Anyway, the few places that have it downloadable as an MP3 either don't work, or are blocked here. There are a ton of videos for it on youtube that I could have used an audio grabbing program on, but youtube is blocked here and my audio program is fubar'ed thanks to a recent computer update.

Can anyone help me get this song?

one of my favourite movie's, manhunter...a stone-cold cult classic imo and one of michael mann's finest.why not just try and track down the cd soundtrack...that's what i did when i wanted a piece of music from point break.it was easier just to buy the cd,then convert it to diffrent formats.and that was'nt a jab...by the way!;)

This soundtrack has never been "officially" released on CD, and for now, I only want the one track. And I agree completely, Manhunter is one of the best movies, and one of the best movies of the 80's, very stylish, and Mann's use of music to highlight scenes is beyond compare!

And about my jab comment, I do apologize for that, I must have been having a rough day when I posted that. :(

that's ok:)...are you a michael mann fan? i've been a fan since miami vice[series]...my favourite mann movie is without a doubt...heat[pacino and de niro]cop and robber,perfect!coupled with all the sub-plots that movie is a masterpiece imo,and again stylishly shot and with a very moody ambient soundtrack.another mann favourite is thief[from 1981 with james caan]soundtrack by tangerine dream.

No, not yet. I got a bootleg copy of it on DVD from my brother in law for my birthday a few years ago, that will have to do for now. It's a great movie, I wonder how it would go if it were re-done. Mann's version would be great if it wasn't for the aweful editing.
