This Flock of Seagulls video is guaranteed to give you 'Nightmares'

One great device in horror films is to take something non-threatening like a birds or a clown and turn it into something scary. In today's scary video, A Flock Of Seagulls takes a girl's doll and turns it into a the nighttime activity we all dread - Nightmares.

Those who regular follow SIT80's have heard the case that A Flock Of Seagulls is not just about the weird hair and one song, so let's expound on that notion with the dreamy Nightmare. In late 1982, A Flock Of Seagulls wasted little time following up the success of I Ran with the release of a new album Listen. The lead single, Wishing was a Top 40 hit and Nightmares was released as the second single but failed to chart in the U.S. and was only a minor hit in their native U.K in early 1983.

The video for Nightmares is a psychological horror as a girl's childhood trauma involving her doll makes for creepy trip to the psychiatrist as an adult under the guidance of A Flock Of Seagulls. If you like, you can catch up with lead singer Mike Score when he appeared on podcast Episode 345 of SIT80s.
