YMMV / A Flock of Seagulls

Go To

  • Critical Research Failure: A large group of seagulls is called a colony, not a flock. Justified, in that Mike Score got the band's name from a misheard song lyric.
  • Face of the Band: Mike Score, with hair like that, and maybe the dude with the glasses.
  • Never Live It Down: Mike Score himself has lamented how more people probably know about his hairstyle than any of their songs.
  • Signature Song: "I Ran (So Far Away)"
  • Song Association:
    • If only for their single hit.
    • Plus, Vice City Stories had "Space Age Love Song" in its soundtrack.
  • Sweet Dreams Fuel: "Space Age Love Song." It lives up to its name.
  • Tough Act to Follow: It's generally agreed that the band's self-titled debut is their only consistently good album, and the ones that followed only had a handful of decent songs.
