After leaving Bauhaus and going solo, Peter Murphy released this single Cuts You Up and it was his only Hot 100 chart entry for peter Murphy in North America. Murphy says the song is about the path of discovery, self- knowledge and wisdom and once you gain it,it will spit you out and ruin your assumptions if you start getting too arrogant in the knowledge. Two years after Cuts You Up was released, Murphy moved to Turkey where he explored Muslim worship music and a branch of Islam. Cuts You Up was produced by Simon Rogers. Murphy claims the driving force of the song is a violin riff played on a synthesizer.  I think it’s still one of the best songs to hear in a club
