Berlin Artist Bio and Lyrics
Hailing from Orange County, California, Berlin was an American New Wave band. Their first single, “A Matter of Time,” was released in 1980 on I.R.S. Records, but wasn’t a major success. It appeared on their debut Information.
Berlin’s next single, ”Sex,” was banned by many radio stations due to its graphic lyrics. Many people considered it a hit anyway. The single appeared on the EP, Pleasure Victim, released in 1982. The EP also featured the hit, “The Metro,” which would be covered by many bands such as System of a Down decades later.
Following Pleasure Victim, Berlin would release their first major chart climbing album. In 1984 they released Love Life, the album climbed to number 28 on the US charts and featured singles such as, “Dancing in Berlin,” and “Touch.”
When the Single, “Take My Breath Away” appeared on the Top Gun soundtrack in 1986, Berlin would find the pinnacle of their success. “Take My Breath Away” appeared on the album, Count to Three and Play, and the song would reach number 1 in the US and reach the top five worldwide.
In 1987 Berlin released Dancing in Berlin, but it bore no successful singles. Berlin would continue to release albums in shadow of their prior success until 2005.

Forever in Memory
As I get older (36) I find myself always returning to the music of the 80s, and without question Berlin stricks a chord in me. Listening captures a forever glimpse of hope and innocense. I love this music and hate sometimes how as I get older, and people and circumstances change, this music gets lost. I miss listening to Berlin, and only have my CD player to listen to it on. Best of luck to us that care.

Berlin was one of those rare bands that haven't dated over time.We all still listen to Love Life heaps,and my best friend Sheryl died in a car accident in 1985,but her fave band was Berlin,and she loved Terri's voice.Her fave songs were All tomorrows Lies,and Lost in the crowd.....so for Sheryl....we salute Berlin.

Just saw them in concert Regeneration Tour ATL 07/15/09
Terri Nunn must have been in cryogenic suspension. She came out on that stage and just tore it up! The new album is "All the Way In" They did a cover of "Find Somebody to Love" All I can say is wow! They haven't lost a thing, only gotten better since the last time I saw them at the Mae West Theater in Phoenix in the 80's.

Just saw Terry Nunn in Napa. She's still great. But get back together with Crawford and Diamond. To make new music you need Crawford.

Fred Floy of Fred Floyd and The Unemployed
I saw Berlin Halloween day 2009 at Santa Anita Race track in Arcadia,CA they sounded great Exspecially Terry. She Looked great as well. It was great day I even pick the winner of two races. One while watching and listening to Berlin. If you get a chance to see them on this tour if they are touring it is strongly recommended.

Berlin is a great band. Unfortunately for me, in this part of the world the only song we know is "Take my breath away". There is a tape that had this song back in the day. It also had a song with lyrics that begun like this; "crying doesn't ease the pain/ when the fire is gone/ when the weak break the strong/ ...no danger when a heart is gone/ if I stay alone/ mine will soon turn to stone/ I know girl you are not the only one/ who is looking for someone to hold/ the look in your eyes aint the same any more/ something has changed deep inside...
If anyone knows the title of this song, please help me. Been looking for it for 17years! I don't know if it was sang by Berlin or some other band. email@example.com

Poco sings "Nothing to Hide" -- crying doesn't ease the pain/when the fire is gone...

I remember hearing Sex I'm... for the first time as a 15yr old & loved it, since then I have collected various 12" singles of them & recently bought a metro greatist hits cd which contains remixes of their greatests songs No More Words,Dancing In Berlin, Pleasure Victim, etc. Terri Nunn is still hot & Take My Breath Away one of the greatest songs ever.You can't beat 80's music.
