Music Monday - Nothings Gonna Stop Us By MYMP

Welcome to my new blog! It's still under construction for my 80's theme that I surely hope to fulfill all my goals for this week. I just feel so positive and inspired this Monday morning that I can't help it... really nothing is gonna stop me :)) I'm featuring this song from the MYMP rendition. This song is a classic for me. It brings me back to my highschool movie review report in 1987 on Mannequin starred by Andrew McCarthy and Kim Cattral. Enjoy the great tunes this Music Monday. Happy MM, everyone!

Oh my you two make me feel so old. My kids grew up in the 80's. I am a 70's person.

But, I did do an awful lot of disco dancing at discos when I was young. I love the 80's too!!

I remember the movie and this song very well! Good luck with your new blog and thanks for stopping over and visiting me!

Happy MM:-)

Thanks for the first comments here, ladies!

Yes 80s theme is it! Great to know you're an 80s girl also, Mariuca :)

Jackie, funny you say that! Nah, age is just a number. What matters most is how you good you feel within you! Anything from the 80s gives me that momentary cheer and makes me unaware of how old I really am now,ha-ha. I also have a little bit nostalgia with the 70's, most especially when I hear familiar songs that remind me of my toddlerhood in Germany.

Happy MM, ladies! :)

cool, when I thing of the tune I think of Jefferson Airplane or Starship that they bacame.

Jackie said...

I didn't answer your question about Texas and country music. Yes it is true that most people associate Texas with country music.

But that was before the Austin music revolution took over. Now Texas music is more representative of the sound you heard on my video today.

The Austin sound incorporates a mix of jazz, blues, rock and a heavy emphasis on really strong guitar!!

Happy night!:-)

I will have to re-listen to this version since my connection is so bad today. The version I know was from Mannequin 2: On the move. The one done by Starship. I had a huge crush on the lead of the movie two. haha. I hope cable will soon air the first Mannequin movie as I'm curious.

I love this song..
Happy MM!

@Raine I agree with you, Mannequin 2 is quite a good version for this generation. The lead looks good too! Me too, I'm also waiting when they would feature Mannequin movie starring Andrew McCarthy and Kim Cattral. They were an awesome pair :) In the Philippines,when it was shown in the theaters in 1987, the media raved for this movie. I believe it became a hit back then. It's a feel-good movie that earned the approval of our high school senior year English teacher to suggest it for our movie report. Haha, I personally wonder how I made a good report of it despite not having a betamax player to watch it with! I must've done something clever.. :D

Mystery Man said...

such a quintessential 80s song! love it! thanks for sharing!

Raine said...

@RichRed Listened to it! I like what they did to it. I don't know why critics gave Mannequin 2 a hard time. I thought it kept the spirit of the first film too. It was a feel good movie. Kristy S. and William R. had a great on-screen chemistry that you can't help but root for them. I can't find a VCD of it. I barely managed to get Mrs. Winterbourne vcd copy. I wish there was Mannequin 3.:D Petition? lolz. Someone with the likes of Mr. Gary Marshall to direct or... I can't recall some great rom-com directors at the moment. hehe It would be a totally different set. Mescach (sp) Taylor was such a hoot as the supervisor. I even recall wanting to work in a department store and be a set dresser just because of that movie. :D

Presenting "A Day In Life" my series of texts from my journals that I kept between the ages of 14 and 17. I'll be adding new entries every now and then to share all my thoughts, ideas,events, experiences, memories, ideas I had during the eighties. It is for my continued amusement that I read and reread my old journals, even when there isn't much content, I still gain occasional insight how I'm still in the process of changing to maturity. Most of the names have been changed to protect the people I recently found on Facebook. A few are just partial entries, my bleeping and blinding exclamations have been removed and some entries have been modified to give way to my now correct spelling and grammar. Yet the mix of excitement, melodrama and pleasant memories from the eighties are still much felt :)I hope, as you read my old journal with me, you enjoy the same sentiments.
