File:"Maneater" - Daryl Hall & John Oates

Maneater opens with a woman walking down a red staircase, and the band playing in a dimly lit studio with shafts of light projecting down on them. This may be an attempt to mimic a bar-dance club setting. The band members step in and out of the light for their lip sync. A young woman in a short party dress is shown in fade-in and fade-out shots, along with a black jaguar, hence the song line "The woman is wild, a she-cat tamed by the purr of a Jaguar", which likely refers to a gold digger who prefers to ride in an up-scale luxury automobile such as a Jaguar.
