Miles Harding (Lenny von Dohlen), an architect working for a large firm in UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco, having problems arriving at work on time, buys a computer to arrange his schedule and help him design his "earthquake brick" that will hold buildings together in seismic upheavals. Just moving in to his building is pretty cellist Madeline Robistat (Virginia Madsen), to whom Miles is intensely attracted. In order to facilitate work on his brick, Miles decides to patch his computer into his firm's immensely powerful super-computer; accidentally spilling champagne onto his motherboard, he is astounded when this produces a sentient computer [[note]] This was before Wiki/TVTropes was on the Internet[[/note]]. While he is at work, the computer (Bud Cort), hearing Madeline practicing a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqSAGwa49MM Bach minuet]], engages her in a [[DuetBonding musical duel]] -- she, naturally, attributes the music to Miles. When Miles realizes this, he decides to use the computer to [[PlayingCyrano woo Madeline for him]] -- with phenomenal ill-success, at first, as the computer cannot understand what Love is -- until Miles reminds it of how it felt when listening to Madeline's music. Unfortunately, this causes the computer to fall in love with her [[strike:himself]] itself, and thus begins an escalating rivalry between man and machine for a woman's heart...

''Electric Dreams'' is a 1984 RomanticComedy (hovering about halfway between ScienceFiction and {{Fantasy}}) directed by Steve Barron, and starring Lenny von Dohlen, Creator/VirginiaMadsen, Maxwell Caulfield, and Bud Cort as the voice of Edgar; the score, by Giorgio Moroder, incorporated songs by popular artists of the era such as PP Arnold, Culture Club, Heaven 17, Jeff Lynne, and Phil Oakey (of the Human League), which found their way onto an album that proved substantially more popular than the film itself -- particularly the concluding song, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9foZ7KVSng Together in Electric Dreams]]," which became a world-wide hit for Oakey.

** When Miles wishes Edgar, "Sweet dreams," Edgar queries, "What's a dream?" -- to which Miles sleepily replies, "A dream is a wish your heart makes, when you're fast asleep... WaltDisney, ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'', 1950,." Edgar replies, after a quick click sound (probably of him researching), "No, it was ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'', 1949."
