The video is in the same key but I've changed the opening and taken out the long instrumental as well as some extra choruses to make it easier for BUG! The only really challenging chord is the [F#]. Some other sites have used [F#m] instead to make it a simpler chord, but it just doesn't sound as good to me. If you play the preceding [G] using the 2nd inversion (i.e. the same chord shape as the [F#] but starting barring the 2nd fret, it will make it easier and it's good practice!

"Maneater" reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on December 18, 1982. It remained in the top spot for four weeks, more than any of the duo's five other number-one hits, including "Kiss on My List", which remained in the top spot for three weeks. (Wikipedia)
