We’re stepping into the time machine and going back to 1984 for this edition of Track of the Week. The NeverEnding Story is certainly on most “best of” film lists of the 1980s, and it holds a place near and dear to many hearts (mine included). In fact, I’ve seen the movie dozens of times and it has yet to grow stale or lose any of its original magic. Part of that is due to the film’s score, which was written in large part by legendary producer Giorgio Moroder.
I didn’t actually know that Giorgio Moroder scored The NeverEnding Story until I decided on my track for the week and did some research. Now I can’t hear the title track without hearing his fingerprints all over the work! Is there anything that man can’t do? I also didn’t know that Limahl, formerly of Kajagoogoo sang the song. It was pretty much his one big hit as a solo artist, with the track charting in the top ten around the world.
So there you have it, a little slice of pop perfection for this week’s special focus track. The NeverEnding Story is one of those films with a title track that’s just as iconic as the film, and I hope you’ve all enjoyed this trip down memory lane as much as I have (and maybe I wasn’t the only one that didn’t know some of the fun facts about the track!).
