  • My love
    There's only you in my life,
    The only thing that's bright
    My first love
    You're every breath that I take
    You're every step I make

    And I, I-I-I, I want to share all my love with you
    No one else will do
    And your eyes, your eyes, your eyes, they tell me how much you care
    Ooh yes, you will always be
    My endless love

    Two hearts
    Two hearts that beat as one
    Our lives have just begun
    Forever, ohhh
    I'll hold you close in my arms
    I can't resist your charms

    And, love, oh, love, I'll be a fool for you, I'm sure
    You know I don't mind, oh, you know I don't mind
    'Cause you, you mean the world to me, oh
    I know, I know I've found in you
    My endless love

    Ooh-whoa
    Boom boom
    Boom boom boom boom boom
    Boom boom boom boom boom

    Oooh, and, love, oh, love, I'll be that fool for you, I'm sure
    You know I don't mind, oh, you know I don't mind
    And yes, you'll be the only one
    'Cause no one can deny
    This love I have inside
    And I'll give it all to you
    My love, my love, my love
    My endless love

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn July 17th 1981, the Universal Pictures movie 'Endless Love' opened theaters across the U.S.A. and Canada...
    Twelve days earlier on July 5th, 1981 the theme song by Ms. Ross & Mr. Richie entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #54; and on August 9th, 1981 it peaked at #1 (for 9 weeks) and spent over a half-year on the Top 100 (27 weeks)...
    While at #1 it prevented three different records from reaching #1; "Theme from 'Greatest American Hero' (Believe It Or Not) by Joey Scarbury (#2 for 2 weeks), "Slow Hand" by the Pointer Sisters (#2 for 3 weeks), and "Queen of Hearts" by Juice Newton (#2 for 2 weeks).
  • Sandy from Enterprise, FlI find this song incredibly sexy.
  • Matthew from East Brunswick, NjLionel and Shania Twain just made a single of this recently... got a good country feel, but its actually pretty good!
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NySpent nine weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Singles Chart; was also was nominated for Best Song at the 1981 Academy Awards {Lost to "Arthur's Theme" from the movie "Arthur"}!!!
  • Dean from Miami , FlThis is one of the best songs of all time....You can feel the great chemistry between Lionel and Diana when you listen to the song.
  • Mike from Pittsburgh, PaAs I also listened to this tune during the Happy
    Gilmore movie, I was over all impressed with the
    vocals and started to test my knowledge as to who
    the singers were! I seemed to know that it was Lionel and someone who I wasn't sure. As I would
    listen even more intensely I thought it could be
    Streisand. I guss I knew all along it was Diana but as Jim Morrison stated a decade before, she
    was "Breakin On Through" with her unlimited vocal
    talent.
  • John from Nashville, TnBefore ENDLESS LOVE, Diana was unlucky on the charts when it came to duets during her solo career. Her two top-20 duets with Marvin Gaye were considered commercial dissapointments since they were both coming off of huge #1 hits ("Touch Me In The Morning" and "Let's Get It On" repectively). Then she recorded "Ease On Down The Road" with Micheal Jackson in 1978 which stalled at #41 on the pop charts. That same year, Miss Ross teamed up with Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Smokey Robinson to record "Pops We Love You", which crawled on the hot 100.
  • Jeff from Austin, TxWhat's the big deal?? Two people can listen to "Endless Love" in the dark!
  • Bertrand from Paris, FranceSpeaking of ballads and the 1980s, it's impossible to go too far without discussing duets pairing male and female singers, and there was no finer example of this than this overwrought but undeniably engaging tune from 1981. Richie certainly covered this same kind of ground effectively in his solo career, but the addition of a capable female singer with whom to exchange verses raises this song to another level. It helped that Ross was far more than capable.
  • Joshua from La Crosse, WiAmazing how such a memorable song originated from a now all-but-forgotten movie. Then again, considering that the movie was basically about a 17-year-old boy banging a 15-year-old girl, perhaps it's just as well. (On the plus side though, Endless Love did mark the film debut of one James Spader.)
  • Michelle M. from Valley Fever, CaFrog Jog scored big time tonight (August 17, 2005) with this one, thanks in large part to the rapidfire response of teammate Rico. Rico pegged Mr. Richie's distinctive male vocals, prompting fellow Frog Jogger Don to confidentally take down the answer, but we were still one answer away from closing on this lovers' duet and many miles away from closing in on the Gaza Strip Club. Love may be endless in this 1981 hit record but time, certainly, is not. Not in this pub and not on this night. "Patti LaBelle?" offered first-timer Peter, tentatively. "NO!" screamed first-timer Michelle, clutching a makeshift clipboard in the form of Neal Stephenson's The Diamond Age even more fiercely to her chest, willing the answer forth from her white-hot knuckles. "Kirsten Dunst" insisted trivia regular Amy. "NO!" screamed all but Julia who slept on a makeshift bartop pillow, dreaming of better bars where food is served during evening hours to normal, hungry, jogging frogs. "Diana Ross" teammate Jason proposed, delicately at first and then quite firmly despite initial ("too breathy") rejections. All of the frogs stopped their blind jogging toward the Gaza Strip Club and conjured an image of Ms. Ross at the mic. Amy still saw Dunst in a wig but for the most part the image stuck. The answer was gotten and this round was closed.

    But for a while, just a short while, the pub and its promise of a $275 dollar fortune remain open to 7 frogs who shared on this night a most Endless Love.
  • Aj from Cleveland, GaNo question one of the greatest love songs ever written.
  • Daniel from Coventry, EnglandThis was also covered by Dionne Warwick and Tom Jones.
  • Annabelle from Eugene, OrMariah Carey and Luther Vandross did this song as a duet together on Luther Vandross's 1994 album, "Songs".
  • Shana from Pembroke, CanadaThis song is in Happy Gilmore!!!!! When their at the skating rink, Happy has this song played
