Track 13 of this issue is "(I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight" (Extended Remix). Fans should be advised that the "extended" bit is actually a mere 6 seconds and the "remix" is, for the most part, indiscernible from the single. It is NOT the original extended version that we all loved when it was released back in '87. Rip Off.

It's good to have all the best of Cutting Crew on one CD. And it is all the best! This CD is a must for any Cutting Crew fan. Two tracks were added "Christians" and "If That's The Way You Want It" that were unheard of by me but are a great addition being songs that are welcomed by any fan. Unfortunate was the addition of "Contact High", a noisy, jumpy song that adds no compliments to Cutting Crew. A song that I prefer to skip all together. And do. But overall, this album is great! Sit back and remember...

Usually the biggest problem with greatest hits collections is that something is left off. Not so with The Best of The Cutting Crew. Leave it to an import disc to get it right. Not only are there 2 versions of (I Just)Died In Your Arms, but all the others are there too. Proving that lyrics are important the cd is also heavy on guitars and synthesizers, but they don't over power the vocals. Songs like Fear of Falling and Everything But My Pride display strong vocals while One For The Mockingbird and the soulful I've Been In Love Before remind us why the 80's were such a strong decade in music. This is a must have for any fan of Duran Duran, Mr. Mister, and other big bands of that decade.

I would like to say that if any 80's fans enjoy the great memories that decade produced, this is a Greatest Hits to help keep those memories alive. I would first like to correct the "Farshid Arjomandi" review a bit. The entire band disbanded(went on to other things) after the "Scattering" album leaving Nick Van Eede & Kevin MacMichael to take the reins (no pun intended) as Christopher Neil of Mike & The Mechanics fame would go on to produce Compus Mentus(the last "out of print" Cutting Crew album). The only song making an appearance from that album is "If Thats The Way You Want It" which finds the band more mature and in-tune as they ever have been. There are also 2 Non-Album tracks here, Christians & Contact High(both from the "Scattering" sessions). Added in with hits like "One For The Mocking-Bird", "(I Just) Died In Your Arms" + the Remixed version, "The Scattering", "I've Been In Love Before", "Any Colour", and "Everything But My Pride", this album finally shows that a "Greatest Hits" package can be worth the price. It is also a fitting tribute to Kevin MacMichael himself as he has passed on since the final album and his time spent with Robert Plant's (of Led Zepplin fame) solo effort "Fate Of Nations" album and tour. May he "Rest In Peace". I highly recommend this album to all who still find themselves "Lost In The 80's" while living in today. This is the Cutting Crew at its best. Go ahead, you know you want to have it..........you've earned it, and it is worth EVERY penny. PEACE 2 ALL!!!! :) :) The 80's STILL RULE!!!! :) :)

This cd covers more of their career but the broadcast has the sound that most cutting crew fans want so this cd is good but not essential personally i prefer the broadcast all their major hits that the band is remembered by are on that cd. If you happen to like some of their latter hits and only want one cd then this ones for you if not buy the broadcast you will most likely be happier.

I hate when Amazon sellers charge an outrageous price for something that's out of stock. I like ordering from Amazon, but I thought they didn't have the CD I wanted. I guess they don't have this old version of the "best of" CD, but who cares, they have the CD I got, the new version (2003 copyright) of the "best of" for only $10.45. I didn't know that because when I clicked on the link to go from Mp3 to CD format it goes to this old "best of" page. So I ended up buying the new "best of" for about $12 on BestBuy.com, which is a good price (though cheaper here on Amazon). I hate when Amazon doesn't have any track listings or sound samples either. But anyways, don't buy any CD that is over $20, that isn't really rare. I'm sure you could get a cheaper, better, remastered version, somewhere else. So don't buy this old version of the "best of" for like $30 from some rip-off seller, when you can get the new version of the "best of" for only about $10, like every CD cost.

I like this band, I think they're underrated. The songs sound 80's style (as they should), but more smooth yet a bit more rockin' than some others from the 80's.

Cutting Crew often falls by the wayside when we think about the many musicians and musical groups of the 1980's, but their impact is still being felt today by current musicians and music lovers. 'Reach for the Sky,' is probably one of the best of their songs and the meaning of the words is still quite poignant today. If you love music, this is a must have collection.

I bought this CD for the song I just died in your arms tonight. I was pleasantly surprised to recognize a few other tracks, thought they were a one hit wonder band. I think I spent $3 for it.

This is one of the most amazing complilations of hits of this 80's group. The last songs were good, not as amazing as the original ones but the remixes still conserve the main song so, its a better new way to listen this old songs. The hits were the same ones that we used to liten back in the 80's so I recomend it to buy it.

I am not a fan of contemporary music, but I loved the first cut on the album. I Died in Your Arms was amazing and I thought the album deserved a listen. I still have not heard the entire album yet, so take the rating with a grain of salt.
