Description

It is unfortunate that A Flock Of Seagulls (AFOS) are only mostly remembered for Mike Score's unique hairstyle, than their music beyond "I Ran (So Far Away)" their US Top 10 hit single of 1982. However, the band can also be awarded the title of true pioneers. AFOS were one of the first New Wave bands from the United Kingdom to become successful in America, helping to pave the way for many other acts such as the Thompson Twins, Howard Jones and Thomas Dolby. "Electrics" is taken from A Flock Of Seagulls second album entitled "Listen" released in 1983. The song somewhat humorously predicts life in the future and the widespread use of communication technologies. Lyrics: I've got information, Something you should hear, Electrical motion Is in the atmosphere. Something in the air has Given me a scare, Electrics in my fingers, Electrics in my hair. Electrics everywhere Living in the future, Thinking of the past, Electrical disturbance, Disturbance from the blast. Electrics everywhere The Electrics are everywhere"
