40 YEARS AGO: A Flock Of Seagulls – “I Ran (So Far Away)”

40 YEARS AGO: A Flock Of Seagulls – “I Ran (So Far Away)”

March 4, 1982

A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS have another new single out. This time it is “I Ran” and “Pick Me Up.” There is also a 12″ version of the same single, but with an additional track called “Messages.” If that’s not enough, you can buy a limited edition picture disc as well. Although the song doesn’t do very well in the UK, stalling at #43, when it is released in America this summer, it will become the band’s first and biggest US hit going all the way to #9. Their new wave haircuts, and their new sound is just right for the times, and not too adventurous for the radio.”
