Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now


Songwriters: Albert Hammond, Diane Warren
Performer: Starship
Category: 80s

This song is a testament to the staying power of love - something that's perfect for a wedding ceremony. Albert Hammond came up with the song concept in a conversation with co-writer Diane Warren, telling her how he was finally free to marry his long-time girlfriend.

It became a number 1 hit in 1987 and was the feature song for the movie Mannequin that same year. In addition, it was nominated for an Oscar for Song of the Year.

It also had a big influence on the Montreal Canadiens NHL hockey team in their 1993 run for the Stanley Cup. Their coach Jacques Demers heard the song while driving home after losing a game and realized the motivation it contained. He brought the song to their practice the next day. It became a sort of team motto and they started winning games -- all the way to winning the Stanley Cup.

LYRICS

Looking in your eyes I see a paradise
This world that I 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 them say "We're 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 we're heart to heart

CHORUS
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 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 them say, "We're 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 we're heart to heart

CHORUS

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

Looking in your eyes I see a paradise
This world that I 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 them say "We're 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 we're heart to heart

CHORUS

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 them say, "We're 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 we're heart to heart

CHORUS

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