A Flock of Seagulls

From: Liverpool, England

Active: 1981-1995

I first heard them: in the '80s, probably, but it was only after listening to "flashback lunches" on radio stations in the '90s that they really registered

Sound: New Wave

Further listening: Nah — this is just an '80s song that happened to grab me more than similar '80s songs around the time I was putting this chart together. The band is just a name to me.
