Known for their space-age videos and electronic melodies, British synthpop band A Flock of Seagulls were equally notorious for their hair and fashion choices. Which makes sense given lead singer Mike Score’s previous career as a hairdresser. In this video for 1982’s “Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You),” he sports his most notable do, as well as some awesome spacewear.
The special effects may seem lo-fi by today’s standards, but in my book, any video that aims to merge a love song, a spaceship setting, and a mid-song montage that may as well feature an extra from Saturday Night Fever twirling in front of excerpts from an episode of Nova is more than OK in my book.
’80s space chic at its finest! Enjoy, and Happy Friday…
