Flock of Seagulls "I Ran"

Flashback: A Flock of Seagulls "I Ran"

I love this video with an unwholesome passion. I don't care if "I Ran," from 1982, was a one-hit wonder. From the lead singer in his red "New Romantics" shirt, to the rad guitarists (one of whom looks around twelve in those oversized sunglasses), to the rotating camera action — "I Ran" is a classic. And it should come as a surprise to no one that the founder seagull was a hairdresser.

And that's hilarious about the foil! It's like a foil monster just standing there!

Great song. Holy moly, I was born in '82 and videos have definitely changed since then!

I like this song...I also like the fact that the camera is covered in a big mound of foil so no one can see it in the mirror.
