Aspirational dreams of youth coupled with naïve, unaffected simplicity led me to write a song called “Never Surrender” some 35 years ago. Today as I gaze out onto the uncertain sea of change, I’m reminded of the kind, resilient people in our world who keep moving forward with steely determination and steady stride — that yes indeed, “just a little more time is all we’re asking for.”
Since the pandemic surfaced, I have received so many heartfelt messages from people all over the world telling me how much “Never Surrender” inspires them. It spurred me on to release a reworked version of the original song and film a new video (directed by Julie Masse) to accompany it.
“Never Surrender” is an indelible part of Canadian music history. It won the Juno Award for Single of the Year in 1985, when it spent four weeks at #1 in Canada. It also topped the US Billboard charts in August of that same year. “Never Surrender” has been covered over one thousand times and was recently featured in the Seth Rogan Hulu series Future Man, the Netflix series Stranger Things and CBS’ The Goldbergs. Corey Hart was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall Of Fame at the 2019 Juno Awards.
