Flock of Seagulls is a British Grammy Award-winning "synthpop" group that was a hit on MTV in the early 1980s for music videos of their songs, "I Ran (So Far Away)" and "Space Age Love Song," the latter of which showed off lead singer Mike Score's distinct haircut. The original band split in 1985, but Score put together a new band in 1995. Among the band's other hits are "Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)" and "The More You Live, the More You Love." During the past decade, some of their songs were added to video games, bringing a whole new generation into their fan base.
On November 21st, 2010, "Space Age Love Song" was used on the Cartoon Network animated series Sym-Bionic Titan in the Season 1, Episode 10 entitled "Lessons in Love." And since then YouTube videos of the song have increased by the tens of thousands introducing a new decade to the Flock of Seagulls for even greater recognition as one of the best "new wave" bands in the 1980s once again.
When in Rome UK from the United Kingdom is the Original "WHEN IN ROME" featuring the original vocalists Clive Farrington and original vocalist Andrew Mann that were on the debut record in 1987, signed to Virgin Records which includes the smash hit "The Promise."

When in Rome's "The Promise" became the signature tune for box office hit Napoleon-Dynamite and is still getting regular airplay across the country 18 years after it hit the Billboard Top Ten.
