A Flock Of Seagulls – I Ran
Album: A Flock of Seagulls
The single was promoted by a distinctive music video directed by Tony van den Ende in which the band members performed in a room covered in aluminum foil and mirrors. The cameras used to film the video are clearly visible in many of the background reflections, their stands also covered in foil.
A Flock of Seagulls are a new wave and synth-pop band originally formed in 1980 in Liverpool by Michael “Mike” Score (lead vocals, keyboards), his brother Alister “Ali” James Score (drums), and Francis Lee “Frank” Maudsley (bass), with their most famous line-up consisting of the Score brothers and Maudsley along with lead guitarist Paul Reynolds.
The group had a string of international hit singles including “I Ran (So Far Away)” (1982), “Space Age Love Song” (1982), “Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)” (1982), and “The More You Live, the More You Love” (1984). They became notable in the 1980s for their video for “I Ran (So Far Away)”. The band won a Grammy Award in 1983 for their instrumental “D.N.A” (1982).
