Nothing's Gonna Stop Us - Starship
Cheesy ballads were a staple of ‘80s music, but none of them give me a personal lift like Starship’s “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us.” When I am feeling down and need a pick me up, something about this song always gets me smiling again. It is the height of ‘80s optimism – the drums sound happy, the melodies are inspiring, and the feel good never stops. Also, the video, which comes from the movie Mannequin, is just a spectacle through and through. The drummer singing backing vocals is my favorite part! Let them say I’m crazy – I don’t care about that, indeed!
