“Limahl – Never Ending Story” 

The Never Ending Story” is the title song from the English version of the 1984 film The Never Ending Story. It was performed by Limahl. Limahl released two versions of the song, one in English and one in French. The English version featured vocals by Beth Anderson, and the French version featured vocals by Ann Calvert. It was a success in many countries, reaching No. 1 in Norway and Sweden, No. 2 in Austria, Germany and Italy, No. 4 in the UK, No. 6 in Australia and No. 6 in the US Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.
Background and writingThe song was composed by Giorgio Moroder with lyrics by Keith Forsey, although it (and other electronic pop elements of the soundtrack) is not present in the German version of the film, which features Klaus Doldinger‘s score exclusively.

Beth Anderson recorded her lyrics in America separately from Limahl’s.Anderson does not appear in the music video; frequent Limahl backup singer Mandy Newton lip syncs Anderson’s lyrics.

As a reference to the film and its title, the song has no distinctive beginning, nor an end. While many songs fade out, “The Never Ending Story” not only fades out, but also fades.
