A Flock of Seagulls were really one of the bands that are generally regarded with breaking ground for other musical acts in the then, new video music scene. The wild and creative hairstyle by lead singer, keyboardist and former-hairdresser Michael “Mike” Score made them an international success with their techno sound and beats. The video A Flock of Seagulls I Ran, was also considered very creative and interesting at the time.
Those of us who were fortunate enough to be professional DJs in clubs that utilized videos as part of the environment then, loved playing “I Ran” since it appealed to people both as a great dance song but also hysterically entertaining to look at his hairstyle on a huge screen. This was a new and cutting-edge component to the club scene and music videos were just starting to shape the music industry.
A Flock of Seagulls I Ran reached #1 in several countries and is still a highly requested song today for professional DJs.
