"I Ran" (also released as "I Ran (So Far Away)" is a song by English new wave band A Flock of Seagulls. It was released on their debut album A Flock of Seagulls in 1982 and was its most successful single, reaching number 9 in the United States

In an interview on the VH1 special 100 Greatest Songs of the '80s, Mike Score said that he resents the song, but plays it live because people enjoy it. "I Ran" was listed at #55 on the countdown. In VH1's 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders of the 80s, the song was listed at #2

I can't put out this cache without talking about the "Flock Of Seagulls Haircut"

In 1979, Score gave up his day job (as, yes, a hairdresser) to form A Flock of Seagulls with his brother. Before a show one night, as the story goes, Score was in front of the mirror, trying to emulate David Bowie’s poof-mullet ‘do from the Ziggy Stardust days. Alas, bassist Frank Maudsley was also trying to get some mirror time, and, in the scuffle, put his hand on Score’s head, smushing the singer’s poof down in the middle.
