As an appendix to Jen’s post about Oingo Boingo, or the authors of the Weird Science theme song to those of you with only a cursory understanding of obscure eighties music, I’d like to bring an even more random band from that era to your attention. Sparks. I mentioned them before, but I’m sure you ignored me, being the self-centered asshole that you are.
Sparks’ latest album, Hello Young Lovers is awesome. Lil’ Beethoven was great, but I’ve listened to this new one about a dozen times this past week. I doubt you have the same tastes as me, but if you do, you should be on top of this album like a mustache on an upper lip.
Sparks deserve more recognition here in America. Every time you listen to Bo Bice instead of Ron and Russell Mael, a tiny piece of my soul dies.
