''We were sent a script of a movie called Mannequin, where the couple gets married in the end, and they need a song for that. And I, who had lived with Claudia for seven years or whatever, had finally gotten divorced from my other marriage and was thinking of writing a song that... not for anybody to record, but just for me to sing and make a demo for our wedding. And we combined the two together, you know. What I said to Diane Warren was "it's almost like they've stopped me from marrying this woman for seven years, and they haven't succeeded. They're not gonna stop me doing it". That's when suddenly ''Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now'' came up.'' - Albert Hammond (songwriter)
''We had no idea Starship was gonna do it either, by the way. There were many artists that were mentioned, and it ended up being Starship.'' - Albert Hammond (songwriter)
