Songs of My Misspent Youth: Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now

Who said my heart is a cold, hard lump of molten plastic? Oh right, me. But once, long ago (1987), I went to a Valentine's Day party. Oh, it was great, there was a strawberry soda spitting contest, and some kids snuck off to a closet--not me, mind you, no one knew me and I was taller than everyone anyway. Being taller than other kids didn't last long, but this was my favorite song back then, and it's one of those mushy '80s love songs so here's Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now by Starship, you know, the futuristic incarnation of Jefferson Airplane. I ♥ Grace Slick.

Happy Valentine's Day, you lucky people with a significant other!
