There can't be many more uplifting records than 1979 disco classic "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now". Although McFadden and Whitehead wrote and produced songs for the likes of Gladys Knight, The Jackson 5 and James Brown, they will always be remembered for the their only major hit with that unforgettable bassline and the joyful positivity that just bursts forth from every groove...
There've been so many things that have held us down
But now it looks like things are finally comin' around, yeah
I know we've got a long long way to go, yeah
And where we'll end up
I don't know
But we won't let nothing hold us back
I was watching the video for this on YouTube the other day and 13 people had clicked on the dislike button...hard to believe that anyone could dislike this but there you go...
