Diane Warren’s Famous Songs | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

She’s writing our Eurovision entry, so let’s explore her back catalogue.

Diane Warren has an impressive list of hits, and as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s chosen lyricist for the UK’s Eurovision song, she’ll be moulding her style to the voice of whoever wins Your Country Needs You. For now, though, here’s a look at some of the highlights of her career so far.

Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now, – Starship

Number one in the UK and the US, from the hit film Mannequin, we’re pretty sure everyone reading can sing along with this 80s classic at the top of their voice.

I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing – Aerosmith

Aerosmith’s first track to go straight to the top in the US singes charts, this was the big love theme from the biggest summer film of the 20th century. Now enshrined as the first dance in one in four weddings… honestly.

Can’t Fight The Moonlight – LeAnn Rimes

It might not have made it’s mark anywhere except Australia, but boy is this a belter of a track for any female diva!

If I Could Turn Back Time – Cher

Cher. On a battleship. Astride the cannon. Singing. Hearts are still breaking all over Manchester’s Canal Street.

Where My Heart Will Take Me – Russell Watson

Look it was a great song (and Watson’s version shows Warren’s versatility) but it just wasn’t a theme tune for Star Trek. Really. Ignore that and you’ve got a powerful promise in a song that should be a karaoke standard at every Sci-Fi convention.
