This Los Angeles-based synth pop group, founded by
Crawford , singer Terri
Nunn , and keyboard player David
Diamond , made its first national impression with the provocative
single "Sex (I'm A...)" from the gold-selling debut EP Pleasure
Victim in 1982. The group was filled out by guitarist Rick
Olsen , keyboard player Matt
Reid , and drummer Rob
Brill . Berlin's first full-length 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 .
for a solo career in 1987, and Crawford and Brill teamed
up in the
Big F . In 1999, the band reunited to record some new studio
material and also performed a concert, which, along with the new
songs, was released as 2000's Berlin
Live: Sacred and Profane . This was followed a year later
by a flurry of recording sessions that included co-writing tracks
Corgan , among others. The end result, Voyeur ,
was their first full-length studio release in over 15 years.
