Talk about one extreme from another, earlier in "The Definitive 1000 Songs Of All Time 1955 to 2005" (see number 892) Berlin did that song, com'n you know the one, dont play dumb now. Yet in 1986 they released this pop syrupy love ballad "Take my breath away" to an even greater acclaim. Or was it because of a film? Oh well, i'm pretty sure it was the song....
"Before Gwen Stefani and No Doubt, pre-Shirley Manson and Garbage and dozens of other current sensations, there was Berlin - the American Progenitor of electro-pop and sexy provocation fronted by the enigmatic Terri Nunn. And while many bands that had tremendous success in the '80s are the recipients of tributes today, few have had as far-reaching an impact or grooves nearly as timeless as those of Berlin."
"Their success began early, vaulting a self-produced debut EP into gold sales status (1982’s Pleasure Victim). From there, the band earned a major label deal with Geffen, where they went on to produce enduringly edgy tunes like “No More Words,” “Now It’s My Turn” and “Take My Breath Away,” the smoldering, Giorgio Moroder-produced love song that propelled the sales of millions of copies of the Top Gun soundtrack. “Take My Breath Away” also spawned an international number-one single, a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award."
