The California band responsible for Top Gun's unforgettable ballad "Take My Breath Away," Berlin yanked heartily on America's heartstrings before quietly yanking their own plug in 1987. Berlin's smooth synthesized pop first saw the light of day in 1983, when bassist John Crawford, singer Terri Nunn and drummer Rob Brill recorded the gold-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim. Commercial success reared its head after the band filmed a particularly sensuous video for their panting, Triple X song "Sex" That single reached No. 62 on American charts and paved the way for the band's sophomore effort, Love Life, which hit No. 28 in the 1984 album charts. Berlin then apparently overcame its infatuation with sex-laced titles, and recorded Count Three & Pray, which featured cameo appearances by Ted Nugent and David Gilmour. When Count Three & Pray failed to limp past No. 61, Nunn left the band to pursue a solo career, while Crawford and Brill turned their attention toward their new band, Big F.
