Cutting Crew

Exactly 25 years ago today, British band Cutting Crew achieved their biggest popular music success when “(I Just) Died In Your Arms” rose to the top of Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart for the first week of a two-week stay at number one.  The band, which has been led in all of its incarnations by singer and songwriter Nick Van Eede, would score two more Top 40 hits over the next year, with “One For The Mockingbird” peaking at number 38 in July 1987 and “I’ve Been In Love Before” rising to number 9 in November 1987.

While those three songs from their album Broadcast would be the band’s only three Top 40 hits, they did score a couple more hits on adult contemporary radio with “Everything But My Pride” and “The Last Thing” from their next album, The Scattering, a couple of years later.

    Broadcast is an album worth picking up.
