Take my breath away - Berlin

Some time ago I wrote about the double single 'Like flames' by Berlin, which included 'Take my breath away'. I'd almost forgotten that I have the original single as well. Taken from the soundtrack of the movie 'Top Gun', the B-side is a song by Giorgio Moroder with vocals by Joe Pizzulo. It was this single that reached number one in several countries.

My collection: 7" single no. 883
Found: All that music, Leiden, June 16, 1989
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Take my breath away' (Berlin) / 'Radar radio' (Giorgio Moroder feat. Joe Pizzulo)

Like flames - Berlin

Berlin was formed in Orange County, California in the late Seventies. The band consisted of John Crawford, David Diamond and Terri Nunn. Their big break came in 1987, when they recorded 'Take my breath away' for the hit movie 'Top Gun'. It brought them a number one hit in many countries including the Netherlands and the UK. The band then tried to build on this success with this single, 'Like flames'. This single, and other ones, couldn't match the success with 'Take my breath away', and so the band disbanded within a year.

My collection: 7" single no. 3371
Found: London, December 2002
Cost: 2 pounds
Tracks: 'Like flames' / 'Trash' // 'Take my breath away' / 'No more words'
