BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

A. Front

“No More Words” is a 1984 song by Berlin and the first single off the album Love Life. It was also their first Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 23 on May 12, 1984. The song was featured in the 1985 film Vision Quest. In the United States, the song was re-released in 1985 as a B-side to Madonna’s single, “Crazy for You”, which was also featured in the film.

The song was produced by the Italian producer Giorgio Moroder and Richie Zito. The 7″ single included the b-side Rumour Of Love. The 12″ single was paired with Dancing In Berlin and featured the Dance Remix of both songs. The mixes were made by Giorgio Moroder.

The music video saw the band re-enact a Bonnie and Clyde-style car chase and shoot-out, it was directed by Evan English & Paul Goldman, and appeared in Berlin Video 45 videocassette compilation in 1984. It received a lot of airplay in the early days of MTV.

    I thought I made my post earlier, and I fell asleep at my desk, then rebooted my computer before clicking the [submit comment] button. No: taking Bipolar medication does not aff-aff-aff-affect me!!

    Thank you DJ Paul for posting this one. I did not know that “No More Words” was from the album Love Life. I am very confused because I can hear the song “No More words, no more words and no more promises …LOVE” in my brain, but the only Berlin album I ever had was Pleasure Victim on cassette, then later Pleasure Victim on compact disc. I have just been combing Discogs to find out where else I might have heard it. It is just one of those little tics where you are obsessed with finding out why your memory is playing tricks on you. I am certain I never had the Love Life album, I wonder if it was included on any other albums or compilations, because I remember it was something I could actually play, unless I got a bootleg copy someplace. Now it doesn’t matter anyway, I can hear the Dance Remix you have restored for us.

    As always, you never fail to bless us with the best sounds that 12″ Remix/Extended/ Vinyl from the 80s have to offer, and we are enriched for the aural purity of receiving your blessing. My vinyl never sounded this clear and alive. 25+ years ago I never knew how to purchase audiophile quality turntables, needles, and nevermind the post-turntable electronics to pre-amp, receiver, DAC, software etc. make the vinyl sound like yours does. Before digital came along so vinyl could be shared over the internet, I don’t think any of us knew that “playing records” was an art and full-time job skill not possessed by common mortals, rather than a mere past time. I’m confident the gods download your vinyl remasters Paul.

    A gorgeous piece of writing and a phenomenal assessment to what Paul does. I so love it when someone can so eloquently put into words what so many of us feel about Paul’s hard work and dedication. He is a pure gift to us and our ears. Thank you for your beautiful comments Nathan Alan.

    Berlin is one of my favorite bands and these are two of their best songs. Terri’s voice is strong and I consider her in the top tier of 80s vocalists. If you’ve ever seen her in concert, no doubt you would agree. Thanks for the amazing rip 🙂

    Reading all the way down the messages in this post has me smiling 🙂

    Nathan’s right, it is an art… and Paul does it so damn well 😉

    Great to see two of my fave Berlin tracks in one post! My own vinyl’s of these two got played to death and sound a bit worn now… listening to your “Dancing in Berlin” right now and it sounds amazing! Really amazing!

    Thanks Paul 🙂

    Great choice! I love this mix. I saw this 12″ when it was originally released in one of the mall music stores (Musicland) and didn’t understand what a 12″ single was at the time, so I opted for the less expensive 7″ single. A week later, I went back to buy the 12″ single and it was gone. Never saw it again! Anyway, very cool and thanks for restoring this memory!!

    What a treat!
    No More Words is my favourite Berlin single and this 12” mix is fantastic!
    I bought this 12” in 1984 and thought it was such value for money, as with Olivia’s Twist Of Fate/Livin’ In Desperate Times 12” and Wang Chung’s Dance Hall Days/Don’t Let Go. Two hot remixes for the value of one!
    In the 90s, I bought a CD compilation JUST for this 12” mix so that I can have a digital copy.
    But I think that is going to be replaced by your vinyl rip here, Paul! Your skills and experience are improving with every post, and I love the warmth of vinyl. Thank you!
