Day 186





A Flock Of Seagulls- A Flock Of Seagulls

If I were asked to make a best of the 80's compilation, I wouldn't hesitate to include "Space Age Love Song". I may even go far as to say that it would be included on my Top 100 songs of all time list if I were to ever make one.

I never owned this album in the 80's and just like most people, I only thought of them as that band with the weird hair. I was so sick of "I Ran" that I hated this band. It wasn't until watching their Bands Reunited on VH-1 that I really started to think that they were any good. I used to love that show. Stupid that they got rid of that. It's unbelievable how band programming is on that channel now.

I'd love to see the original lineup get back together and do like so many bands do now and play this album all the way through. Not a bad track on it. And I love the instrumentals at the end. What really impresses me on this record is Paul Reynolds guitar playing. Soooo good. Why haven't we really heard from him since?

You know I have to play some "Space Age Love Song" now:

  1. I would put Space Age Love Song in my top 5 80's songs...Much like Don't Change by INXS, it still gives me goosebumps.
