Berlin – “Take My Breath Away” – (1986)

Berlin, who were from Los Angeles, naturally, had one major hit and this was it. It won an Oscar and Golden Globe because of its use in Top Gun on whose soundtrack it appeared. The music video is just clips from the movie – Tom Cruise riding a motorcycle really fast, Tom Cruise walking, Tom Cruise making out with Kelly McGillis, Tom Cruise sad after Goose’s demise, Kelly McGillis sad that Tom Cruise is sad, Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis reuniting after Tom Cruise is done being sad – you know, Top Gun stuff. Still, this song is an 80s classic and when you hear it, you immediately think: Tom Cruise and Top Gun – or at least you should.
