The Stevie Wonder song 'Superstition' is playing from Nauls' ghetto blaster in the kitchen when Bennings tells him to "turn that crap down, I was shot today!". A different song is heard on the Pioneer Cinema PAL release [PLFEB 33051]. I don't remember Stevie Wonder on the 1980's UK video releases either.

The Stevie Wonder track is the original song played in the movie. The song was changed in some releases due to licensing.
