The Best of the Best

Berlin :

This Los Angeles-based synth-pop group, founded by bassist John Crawford, singer Terri Nunn, and keyboard player David Diamond, made its first national impression with the single "Sex (I'm A... )" from the gold-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1983. The group was filled out by guitarist Ric Olsen, keyboard player Matt Reid, and drummer Rob Brill. Berlin's first LP was the gold 'Love Life' in 1984.

In 1985, the group was pared down to a trio of Crawford, Nunn, and Brill. Berlin topped the charts in 1986 with the single "Take My Breath Away," the love theme from the Tom Cruise movie Top Gun. Following this success Nunn left for a solo career in 1987. Crawford and Brill teamed up in the Big F.
