Short Circuit Soundtrack


Nice homage for Fever with the use of "More Than a Woman" by the Bee Gees. "Who's Johnny" by El DeBarge hit #3 on the charts that year as well as "Come And Follow Me" performed by Max Carl and Marcy Levy (aka Marcella Detroit).

Song Trivia The song "Who's Johnny?" is repeated several times in the film, first on Stephanie's stereo and later on the radio in the NOVA truck. Having heard it several times, it's most likely the reason that Number 5 changes his name at the film's end to "Johnny 5". -Thanks to C.T. Warren
