Never Ending Story (1984) (Limahl)




Probably the most memorable song for a fantasy movie... as a kid, my mind sauntered the infinite corridors of possibilities...and in the world where the lines between fantasy and reality are thin...

Bastian Bux, an unbelieving a boy who picks up the book with the intertwined serpents who spends the rest of his reading time being pricked and evoked by a world like never before seen.... The book describes the fantasy world of Fantasia which is being threatened by a force called "The Nothing," a void of darkness that consumes everything...


The character Atreyu sought long and hard to find the Ivory Tower ...the Empress reveals that he in fact succeeded: the quest Atreyu went on was the only way to get in touch with a human child and Bastian is listening to their conversation at that very moment... where the Empress reveals to Bastian that the only way to save Fantasia was for him to say her new name...to believe...

I believed...
Turn around
Look at what you see....
In her face
The mirror of your dreams....
Make believe I'm everywhere
Given in the light
Written on the pages
Is the answer to a never ending story...

Reach the stars
Fly a fantasy....
Dream a dream
And what you see will be....
Rhymes that keep their secrets
Will unfold behind the clouds
And there upon a rainbow
Is the answer to a never ending story...

Show no fear
For she may fade away...
In your hand
The birth of a new day...
Rhymes that keep their secrets
Will unfold behind the clouds
And there upon a rainbow
Is the answer to a never ending story
