Mannequin Soundtrack

AKA:

Songs
Three breathtaking pop tracks were used:

"Do You Dream About Me?" by Alisha -from the musical dance montage sequence (available on her out of print '87 solo-cd "Nightwalkin")

"Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" by Starship -used at the end of the movie and for the credits (available on their "Starship's Greatest Hits" CD)

"In My Wildest Dreams" by Belinda Carlisle -from the start sequence.
(sadly, never released)

The non availability of this soundtrack has to be one of the single greatest crimes ever comitted. Please, someone...?

Song Trivia In 1988, it was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for 'Best Music' and 'Best Original Song' for "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" by Albert Hammond and Diane Warren.

If anyone is interested Alisha, the original artist that sang "Do you dream about me", is now on myspace and the song is on her music player. Here is the link to her page. Hope you really enjoy this as much as I did when I found it. -Thanks to Derrick Abel

Singers Mickey Thomas and Grace Slick of Starship performed lead vocals on the song, "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now". But when the song was performed at the Academy Awards, Grace Slick was unavailable and Mickey Hart was left to duet with Gloria Estefan instead.

Jefferson Starship who performed the love theme "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" filmed a music video for it with clips from the movie, which is sadly missing from the DVD release.

"Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" was written by Dianne Warren who has also written songs for Meat Loaf, Celine Dion, Michael Bolton, Gloria Estefan, and (believe it or not) Aerosmith's "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing". -Thanks to annericelover
