NOTHING'S GONNA STOP US NOW (MANNEQUIN, 1987)


"Just because Jonathan's fallen in love with a piece of wood,
it doesn't make him a dummy." - tagline

One of the most enjoyable camp comedy in the '80's no less comes from a mannequin who turns into a live and gorgeous woman. Kim Catrall way back in her Sex And The City days plays the titular character who was actually an Egyptian princess turned into a wooden dummy in modern times. Starship, one of the leading singing group in the '80's sung the iconic theme and became one of those songs that define the '80's, Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now. The theme was nominated at the Oscar & the golden Globe for best original song and at the Grammys for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or for Television.


NOTHING'S GONNA STOP US NOW
sung by: Starship

Looking in your eyes I see a paradise
This world that I've found
Is too good to be true
Standing here beside you
Want so much to give you
This love in my heart that I'm feeling for you

Let' 'em say were crazy, I don't care about that
Put your hand in my hand baby
Don't ever look back
Let the world around us just fall apart
Baby we can make it if were heart to heart

And we can build this dream together
Standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers
We'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothings gonna stop us now

I'm so glad I found you
I'm not gonna lose you
Whatever it takes
I will stay here with you
Take it to the good times
See it through the bad times
Whatever it takes is what I'm gonna do

Let 'em say were crazy, what do they know
Put your arms around me baby
Don't ever let go
Let the world around us just fall apart
Baby we can make it if were heart to heart

And we can build this dream together
Standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers
We'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us, nothing's gonna stop us

Ooh, all that I need is you
All that I ever need
And all that I want to do
Is hold you forever, ever and ever, hey!

(Guitar Solo Instrumental)

And we can build this dream together
Standing strong forever
Nothing's gonna stop us now
And if this world runs out of lovers
We'll still have each other
Nothing's gonna stop us
Nothing's gonna stop us, whoa
Nothing's gonna stop us now, oh no
Hey baby, I know, hey baby, nothing's gonna stop us
Hey baby, woo, nothing, hey baby
Nothing's gonna stop us now yeah...
