In 1980 "Lost in Love" became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts and was named Song of the Year. Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles' run of consecutive top five singles. The albums "Lost in Love," "The One That You Love," "Now & Forever," and "The Greatest Hits" sold in excess of 20 million copies.

Nevertheless, the surviving movements of the “Unfinished” Symphony stand proudly together and comprise one of the most eloquent orchestral works of all time. Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth) is Mahler’s setting for tenor, mezzo-soprano and orchestra of 8th-century Chinese poems, translated into German. The Song of the Earth features some of the most stunning and evocative music ever written by its landmark composer, and its great depth offers listeners an incredibly moving and powerful symphonic experience.
