Space Age Love Song was A Flock of Seagulls’ follow up single to their breakthrough hit I Ran (So Far Away), which was their first top ten single on the Hot 100 charts.
Space Age Love Song didn’t chart as high, but it was still a top 40 hit for the band, peaking at number 30 on the Hot 100 charts in 1982. According to lead guitarist Paul Reynolds, “the band couldn’t come up with a title for the track, so he suggested “Space Age Love Song” because he thought it sounded like a space age love song.”
