"Lisztomania" is a 1975 film by Ken Russell, drawn from a biography of Franz Liszt.


  1. "Lisztomania" is a song by the French band Phoenix from their fourth album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. It is their second single from the album, although a music video of the song was released before "1901". It peaked at #11 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart in the US and as well as #15 in Belgium. Phoenix released a remix edition of the album later in 2009, with two of the tracks being "Lisztomania" remixes by Alex Metric and 25 Hrs a Day. The song helped the album to be their most successful following their previous hit, "1901". The music video shows them performing live and going outside to find a blimp like the one shown on the album cover.

Lisztomania or Liszt fever was the intense fan frenzy directed toward Franz Liszt during his performances. This frenzy first occurred in Berlin in 1841 and the term was later coined by Heinrich Heine in a feuilleton he wrote on April 25, 1844, discussing the 1844 Parisian concert season. Lisztomania was characterized by intense levels of hysteria demonstrated by fans, akin to the treatment of celebrity musicians today, but in a time not known for such musical hysterics.
