Musical Interlude: Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now (1987)

From the movie, "Mannequin" comes the lone single off the soundtrack, Starship's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now".

The video is a compact re-enactment of certain material from the film, mixed with Mickey Thomas & Grace Slick performing with the rest of the band. Slick & Thomas sub for the film's stars, Kim Cattrall & Andrew McCarthy, respectively, leading to a bizarre twist ending to the video, much to the chagrin of window dresser Hollywood (Meshach Taylor, reprising his role from the movie).

The movie and video, I think, kickstarted Taylor's career, as he would land a role on the sitcom, Designing Women, not long after.
