80’s Flashback

Limahl, NeverEnding Story, 1984. The theme song to the movie of the same name, this one-off collaboration between openly gay former Kajagoogoo frontman Limahl and my all-time favorite producer Giorgio Moroder resulted in one of the most lovely dance tracks of its day. Moroder wrote the music and his frequent partner Keith Forsey wrote the lyrics. (Forsey won an Oscar for writing the Moroder-produced Flashdance.) NeverEnding Story was a global hit, reaching #1 in eight countries, #4 in the UK, #17 in the U.S. Trivia: The uncredited female vocalist providing the gorgeous harmonies is American composer Beth Anderson. (That’s not her in the video.)
