Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now - Starship

(Transcribed by Mardi Gras(TNT))

This is a really powerful love song that is in fact, really easy to play. A fabulous Albert Hammond/Diane Warren song that came out in '87. It went to number 1 in the charts straight away and features in many top movies. It is still one of my all time favourite songs, and since it is not as yet available on the OLGA, I thought I'd post it.
Notes: Throughout verse, mute strings with your right palm.
Verses 1 and 3 are sung by a male vocalist.
Verses 2 and 4 are sung by a female vocalist.
Both male and female vocalists sing the chorus.
For the Coda, male sings the chorus and the female harmonises.
After listening to the track and playing along with it, you should have a fairly good idea of the rhythm, so I have left out the chords for some of the song where repeated previously.

Verse 1: Lo[F]okin' in your eyes I se[E]e a paradise

Well that's all folks... I'll try to post some more when I have the time. I made a guess at the lyrics, so don't bet your life on them!
While I'm here, I'd like to know if there is anyone out there who has
anything by Dream Theater, Mr Big, The Rembrandts, No Doubt, Marty Friedman, Steve Vai or Joe Satriani. But most of all, I would really like to get my hands on "Sleepwalk". I'm not sure who it's by, but I do know it is an old song with lots of wave and tremelo effects. It is featured in the film, "Sleepwalkers". There is a version already available on the OLGA, but I'm afraid I cannot make head or tail of it! Please show evidence of this by posting it in the OLGA. It would be much appreciated.
Thanks... C-ya 'round! =)
