I know Retro Saturday's been going for quite a while on this blog, but in preparation for our second anniversary celebrations on Wednesday (yes!) I thought I'd devote this week's feature to some of my all-time favourites.
So I begin tonight with an all-time classic from 1974 which would be one of my "Desert Island Discs".... "This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Both Of Us" by Sparks.
Unusual, unique and exciting. If you remember it then you know what I mean, if you are too young to remember it then go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ax8JYmoRhy4 and just marvel at Russell Mael's big hair and Ron Mael's .....big stare.
I think the word is ..... legendary.
My most recent fond memory of Sparks is "When Do I Get To Sing My Way" which was a hit in Europe in 1995: the video's at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pvatys8vP3s&feature=related, but amazingly, they are still going.
