This week’s 80′s Video of the Week: “I’ve been In Love Before” by Cutting Crew.

Cutting Crew is a pop rock band formed in England in 1985, best known for their #1 hit, “(I Just) Died in Your Arms”.
The choice for follow-up single in the UK had been “I’ve Been In Love Before”, but that song spent only three weeks in the UK Top 40, peaking at #31. Their choice for follow-up single in the U.S. was their third UK release, “One For The Mockingbird”, but the song was a relative commercial disappointment on both sides of the Atlantic, just cracking the Top 40 of the Hot 100 at #38 and hitting #29 on the Mainstream Rock chart in the U.S., #47 in Canada and #52 in the UK Singles Chart.

The band took a chance on “I’ve Been in Love Before” again, this time with greater success. The song became Cutting Crew’s second U.S. Top 10 on the Hot 100, peaking at #9, and was their first major hit on the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart, where it peaked at #4. This success prompted a UK re-release, and this time it spent five weeks in the UK Singles Chart Top 40, peaking at #24. The song failed to chart throughout most of Europe, but it peaked at #8 in Canada. Despite an unflattering review by Rolling Stone magazine, the band received a Grammy nomination as the Best New Artist of 1987.
