    80s again, just when you thought you remembered all the greatness of the 80s, there is yet another song…………and another………..and another…………………I feel like the 80s is likened to the sinking Titanic? We’re all playing music like the calm musicians knowing their impending demise. Cheers 🥂. We lived on the greatest “music titanic epoch” ever! Happy to share it with all of you.

    The song is so good that it makes up for the worst hair of the 80s 😉 In fact, the song is sheer brilliance.

    I was in Italy right after high (1987) for 43 days and played this endlessly on my Walkman on a loop missing my girlfriend, who has been my wife for 29 years now..

    It's all so beautiful. But especially the section from 3:12 on, and even more so in the full-length version of the song. Paul Reynolds's soaring guitar lines transported the song to a higher level, and the back-and-forth between his guitar and Mike Score's keyboard phrases is like a yearning alien conversation.

    I know that music is subjective, but I would rather be stuck in a lift with Tony Blair doing prumpsplashes than suffer the horror of A Flock of Seagulls pumping out the sheer dirge of their 'top hundred hits'….
    In fact, of all the ear creasing 'nothingness bands', I would rather have Shakin Stevens playing in my ears on an endless loop than subject my being to the torture of any of A Flock Of Seagulls albums. – Telly Savalas ranks higher with that album he made (from his love of music), and also, Joe Dolce ranks higher than the repetitive Gronque (oid) mush of A F O S!
    Please, don't play this smelly gulch of an insult to the 1980's, – you would be much better devoting your time to converting Bay City Rollers tracks to hip hop, then converting your efforts to Thrash Metal, then converting your result to abstract jazz.
    No thing is worse than abject boredom, apart from A Flock Of Seagulls albums. – And I heard a whisper that oriental organizations make use of the vinyl to extract 'secrets' from the most resistant of 'spies'. It makes me shudder til blood flows from my udder….I am sorry that I have had to speak of 'The Dark Doings' which render A Flock Of Seagulls the most incredibly boring band in musical history. (The bassist had some merit, as he could read music) + the name of the band was mentioned in a brilliant early Stranglers track – 'Toiler On The Sea', but apart from that – Nowt is going on, and Nowt is the descriptive word. Nothing. No Thing. Blessings To All Folks loving many musical types. Eddie Hoare.

    Why do people think they're a one hit wonder? They're really a three hit wonder, along with Space Age Love Song

    I'm 47 now and I've had this song in my head for over 35 years I miss the years I was growing up, if I could turn back the clock and live my life in the 80s again I would. Those days were the best. No cares no worries and good friends who are missed

    we could have a debate about which decade was the best music produced in but there`d be no point……anyone who doesn`t think it was the 80`s is just wrong

    🎤It's not the way you look
    It's not the way that you smile
    Although there's something to them
    It's not the way you have your hair
    It's not that certain smile
    It could be that with you
    If I had a photograph of you
    It's something to remind me
    I wouldn't spend my life just wishing…🎹🎼🎶🎼
    It's not the make up and
    It's not the way that you dance
    It's not the evening sky
    It's more the way your eyes are laughing as they glance
    Across the great divide
    If I had a photograph of you
    It's something to remind me
    I wouldn't spend my life just wishing…🎹🎼🎶🎼
    It's not the things you say
    It's not the things you do
    It must be something more
    And if I feel this way for so long
    Tell me is it all for nothing
    Just don't walk out the door
    If I had a photograph of you
    It's something to remind me
    I wouldn't spend my life just wishing…🎹🎼🎶🎼

    I only discovered this beautiful song during the summer of 2019, it’s haunting, sad and it inspires all at the same time………..I want it played at my funeral.

    I'm so lucky that I'm a teenager at this 80's fantastic Era of beautiful, & relaxing music called NEW WAVE, those were the days we watched movies on betamax, spending the afternoon playing Game & Watch, and listening music to a Sony Walkman with an audio tape of A FLOCK OF SEA GULLS.

    I had tickets to their performance in Chico at Chico State. They cancelled the day of due to lack of ticket sales. I was so bummed! Never got to see them live.
