"No More Words" is a 1984 song by Berlin and the first single off the album Love Life. It was also their first Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 23 on May 12, 1984.[1] The song was featured in the 1985 film Vision Quest. In the United States, the song was re-released in 1985 as a B-side to Madonna's single, "Crazy for You", which was also featured in the film, according to Joel Whitburn's "Top Pop Singles" 14th edition.[citation needed]

The song was produced by the Italian producer Giorgio Moroder and Richie Zito. The 7" single included the b-side "Rumour of Love". The 12" single was paired with "Dancing in Berlin" and featured Moroder's dance remix of each song.

The music video saw the band re-enact a Bonnie and Clyde-style car chase and shoot-out; it was directed by Evan English & Paul Goldman, and appeared in Berlin Video 45 videocassette compilation in 1984. It received a lot of airplay at the time on MTV.
