I've never felt so strong

224. Saint Etienne - "Nothing Can Stop Us" (Heavenly, 1991)

I know that songs get assigned seasons and this song is most definitely a summer song, so let's cast off the stifling chains of climate and pretend that summer is finally here, flowers are in bloom, short shorts are in effect, and we are walking through the city not in a cold shiver but with our arms spread wide so as to take in as much sun as possible. What better anthem for this fantasy than Saint Etienne's endlessly optimistic 1991 celebration of young love. We're all gonna be a-ok.
