WITHOUT YOU

"Without You by Cutting Edge was released to commercial radio stations in 1999 and shot up the charts to Number 20 at radio stations in the U.S. Two years later, a college radio syndication show began to play "Without You" during their college radio show and the single almost overnight was receiving airplay at over 200 college radio stations. Commercial radio stations stepped forward and before the Cutting Edge knew it, the single was back on the commercial radio charts topping off at Number 16. This has never happened with an indie band before. The following is some of the chart action and awards the song ("Without You") and Cutting Edge received.

Suprised in Concert
Our radio station played "Without You" by Cutting Edge and even though the song was popular with our audience and the song charted in the US, I was not a big fan of the song or band until I saw them in concert. When they hit the opening bars of Without You, the girls in the audience started screaming so hard, I could not hear the song. Then the audience lit the matches and lifted them in the air and for me the audience, the song hit another higher level. This is a great song for the females and now I love it.
- Greg Sumners, Denver

Did I ...?
When I listen to Without You, my legs get relaxed, my breathing gets heavy, my eyes slowly close, my heart gets pumping and...., WOW, I played this when I spent the night with my boyfriend and it was GREAT and INTENSE. Was it him or Cutting Edge? Who is the guy on vocals? Whoever it is, I will be the girl and he can be my flame. Light my fire. Can't wait to do it with them at their concert.

Lost
I became lost when I first heard "Without You". It left me missing the man that I love (he is in the army and currently in Germany). I made me feel that he was still with me as I heard him inside me saying the lyrics with the song. I cannot wait to share it with him.
- Without Him from NYC

Without You is a great song. Enjoyed the live version of the song. Good job. Have to admit, I love your ballads better than the rock songs.

A huge hit for the band, Cutting Edge; "Love Police" was released in 2001. The original version was released to A/C and Top 40 radio stations in the U.S. and International radio market with great success with the single topping the charts at Number 20. As the original version began to fall off the charts, the band released a re-mix dance version of the song and "Love Police" stayed on the charts. It is one of very few songs that stayed on the charts for over one year period, never dropping below Number 30. During a recent concert, the band recorded the live version of "Love Police" and may release it to college radio in 2012.

Love Police and Cutting Edge jams in Concert!
Cutting Edge played LA last night and I have never enjoyed a concert such as this. The band jammed out Love Police for almost 20 minutes and the crowd rocked. I have been promoting concerts for over 20 years and never, ever, had I seen a band take a hold of an audience like Cutting Edge. I will state this now, there is no indie band in the world that can get on the same stage as Cutting Edge. I repeat, there is no indie band in the world capable of being on the same stage with Cutting Edge. It is a shame that they hardly ever tour and only do limited concerts dates when they do.
- GuitarWorld, Steven

Which is my favorite, the original version of Love Police with the dual lead vocals and the rock sound, or one of the two dance remixes they did. All I know is radio played this song for a whole year and I could not get enough of it. Saw the band in concert and I was suprised by the number of hit songs they have had. Great band with a lot of imagination. Way to go Cutting Edge - Chris, LA Weekly

The "Love Police" are after you by Cutting Edge
I cannot beleive what I just heard. This song is a total lockdown and I was and still am in total awe. Great lyrics and vocal work. Love the unusual sound of the vocals, how many songs have duo lead vocals. Blows me away. I might be one of the few people out there who has seen this band live and if you get a chance you have to go see them. They almost never tour, but when they do, they explode. Love Police runs the table of being among one of the great rock songs, and the band delivered in concert with the original rock version and then breaking into the dance side. I have never seen or heard anything like it before. DJ Hawk, Los Angeles

Cutting Edge, Come to Europe
Can Cutting Edge come and tour Europe? Fantastic Group. I have them on my radio show and Internet show and they are getting a lot of phone requests. Amazing sound. Hey, thought I mention, I loved the "Love Police", any copies left? I'll put it into the mix. Cutting Edge has millions of fans in Europe, come on over guys. Amazing Group. - DJ Madmanmax

Crowd went NUTS,
Spun 3 times in 3 hours> The Big Cop Mix really made the people party and by the 2nd spin, they were singing the chorus. I caught Cutting Edge in concert in Los Angeles and they ripped up the place. They did the original version of Love Police and during the main chorus and jam, they broke into the re-mix and the crowd went nuts. They jammed the baby for 15 minutes, steel drums, and all. I have never seen a show like this. Also got off on Judas Of DC, Way to go Cutting Edge - DJ Craig, Los Angeles, CA.

utting Edge plays Love Police
Ive spun the best and Ive seen the best in concert, but Cutting Edge is the total bomb. This band is going to explode. They blew the roof off at the concert with Its Time, Abuse of Power, Judas of DC and of course, Love Police. I have never seen or heard anything like it. Since I was spinning Cutting Edge, they invited me back stage at the concert. I could not believe it when the 2 bands following Cutting Edge refused to take the stage. The following night, Cutting Edge was headlining the concert. HEY DJs, if youre spinning Cutting Edge, let them know, they take good care of us at their shows. I had 2 backstage passes and dinner. There mustve been 20 DJs backstage. Great Band-DJ Booker, Los Angeles, CA.

Celebrity News! review of our song "Love Police" (LIVE)
"Love Police" (LIVE) by Cutting Edge
Category: Music

Review of Cutting Edge's song, "Love Police" (LIVE)

It has been almost 20 years since I have heard a 'KICK ASS' party track like "Love Police" by the band, Cutting Edge. From the moment the band kicks in, the audience is pumped, and the party has begun. You can hear the interaction between the band and the audience and the song keeps you wanting to go out and find the party. The thing that sets Cutting Edge from other bands though is not only was the original version of the song a top twenty hit single, but the dance remixes also charted, in the same year. "Love Police" was charting inside the 20 at radio for over a year and no other band has every accomplished this. Even the theme song from the Titanic failed to do this, but this track launches into orbit as when you think the original version of the song is coming to the end, the band breaks into its dance remix with Ricky Ric and the party continues from there. The Cutting Edge live track of "Love Police" is something everyone should give a listen to. But the whole live album is a smash, as another writer here is doing a review of the opening track "It's Time", and he says, "It's thumbs up all the way".

All of you out there, better catch this band live and don't be fooled, there is another band out there calling themselves Cutting Edge, make sure you catch the right one. It's "Love Police" all the way, baby".

Energetic song by Cutting Edge (Body Talk)
Energetic and positive dance music that say's get of your ass and have some fun. The track is delivered with great punch and has a uplifting mood. Vocals are very well done and the lyrics really compliment what the song is about Production and programming is good and I liked the live feel to this track. I really don't know who you sound like so maybe thats a good thing, it's certainly a interesting fusion. The track is the sort of thing that would sound good on the airwaves, but for me and my taste it,s just still that little bit gay. Just the same nice effort keep it up.- djmagoobyron from Australia on 2Jun2006

Body Talk by Cutting Edge is HAPPENING!
Wow. This one get straight into it! This is one really happening party track. The horns are awsome! This has a male/female bounce back and forth similar to the venga boys. The female voals are definitely stronger than the male viocals though. The keyboard slap bass sound is a bit on the dated side though. I like the concept and the melody. I just think that with better production and better male vocals it would have commercial viability.

Nice
Very good sequencing, a very nice mix. It sounds really good and the fx works like a charm. Nice vocals. Cheesy lyrics, very 90´s but ok they are funny. This song would be a hit. A perfect song for a movie:) It would work in the clubs too.- Skandahl from Skene, Mark, Sweden on 11Jul2006

Let's boogie
*Dance-song pair review.* Bringing back that retro feel, this song is very well made. The combination of voices are mixed to complement each other, the music actually makes you want to move. Overall: If you're into funky stuff, this is a great song.- timewiz from Munich, Germany on 9Jun2006

Got to move that a Body to this Retro Funk Gro..
Energetic start on this track. The musical elements all seem to fit well in this funk groove. The only instrument that is "weak" is the synth echo that doesn't have the punch of the rest of this full mix track. Overdrive on the song will be totally complete. The arrangement has several interesting aspects through out that keep the listener engaged. A well produced and evenly balanced track. Very nice job!- Digital_Motion from D-Fw Metroplex, Texas on 25Jun2006

Reviews!
Hey.....I know you guys....:-)
I was already writing to you guys. I did not get a chance to review your last song, now I get the chance to give you a good review, mostly because now I've heard your other stuff, too. You guys have a cool sound. I love the lead guitar work, the retro rock-and-roll piano works well in the tune, though I'd never expect it to do so. This isn't your best, though. Your other stuff on your website is much better!!!

F - - - The IRS has a classic feel
I can really feel the classic rock here. I like the ideas presented. Thought the ideas are some one between hairband and thrash to me. This is still has an original feel. And who does not like a song against the IRS at tax time. Good song Cutting Edge

Good Times with F---the IRS by Cutting Edge
Love the outragessness of this song, the arrangements, musicians and the vocals (David Pesnell and Ryan Smith), with out and out delivery that hits the IRS in the face. In your face is what protest music is all about.

"Every Time I Try" is a great dance track!
This song by Cutting Edge is a very well produced track with some great drum and bass. It is very atmospheric and would sound great attached to a piece of film. It is a very good dance track as well and is sung with alot of power.

Cutting Edge is groovin
Groove kicks in right away. I'm already shaking my body and getting into it. Nice synths and instrumentation sets up a cool vibe. This is kind of like Donna Summers for the 21st century. The singer sounds great and delivers the lyrics nicely. "Every Time I Try" is a GREAT song!

The Cutting Edge single, "Without You" hit the U.S. radio charts in 1999 and climbed up to Number 20 at U.S. commercial radio stations. Two years later, a DJ who had a syndicated radio program for college radio stations, started playing the single and before the band knew it, over 200 college radio stations in the U.S. were playing the song. At that time, U.S. commercial radio stations in the U.S. began playing "Without You" a second time and the single shot up the charts to Number 16. It is the only time an indie band has ever accomplished this feat. Recently, the song was recorded live in concert and the band and it's record company is considering a third release of this single that will never die.

I love this song....but I just heard "Without You" (the live version) and just blew me away. I have only caught them only once in concert and wish they would tour again. I heard one of the members died so they do not tour anymore......does anyone know for sure?
