Song #490: "Space Age Love Song"--A Flock Of Seagulls (1982)

A recurring theme early in this countdown (and it will continue) is my penchant for enjoying songs other than the "big hit" from an album, including from those artists whose time in the limelight was brief.

For A Flock Of Seagulls, it was the Summer of 1982, where you couldn't turn on the radio for 15 minutes without hearing "I Ran", along with "Eye Of The Tiger", "Abracadabra" and "Tainted Love". It was a heckuva summer for music radio, that's for sure.

But, I preferred, overall, their second single, which peaked in the U.S. at #30, and is the first of two of their songs to appear in this countdown (the other will take months to get to, hint, hint...).

For a little while, I was falling in love. Here's the extended remix version for your enjoyment!

I never got into Flock music for some reason, maybe it was the way they dressed.... anyway, when I heard them I took their advice and hold on for it,,,,,,,,, I RAN, I ran so far away.......sorry, couldn't help that!
