A Side Label

“The More You Live, The More You Love” is the name of a 1984 single by the new wave/rock band A Flock of Seagulls. It is taken from their third album, The Story of a Young Heart. The single was the first out of three singles taken from the album.

The single was able to chart in both the band’s native United Kingdom and in the United States, as well as in Germany, New Zealand and the US Mainstream Rock Tracks chart; and was the most successful in the Netherlands where it reached the Top 20 for three weeks.

The B-side track “Lost Control (Totally)” is a different mix than what was issued as as a bonus track on the 2008 remastered CD issue of “The Story of a Young Heart” making this 12″ sought after and rare.
