The instrumental backing tracks of the song made extensive use of synthesizers. In addition to topping the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Cara’s only No. 1 hit and earning a platinum record in 1983, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” won the Academy Award for Best Original Song, and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song in 1984.

Cara won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, in 1984 for her performance of the song. The song was also nominated for Record of the Year.
