My apologies for not knowing more about Sparks...

I had "Funny face" on my play list forever but I never knew who did it, and "Number one song in heaven" I love, but I just now discovered "When Im with you" the lyrics are SO ME?! "When Im with you I almost feel normal" "When Im with you I never feel like garbage." "When Im with you I never need a mirror." Those lyrics are SO PARTICULAR and honest I LOVE IT. Plus they make videos as ventriloquists and do minimalist staring. They're like Kraftwerk but with a sense of humor and more danceable. THANK YOU SPARKS! I just bought the song and now its on repeat and will be for the next four hours minimum while I work on props for the next Slick It Up commercial. Ps. The song is extra good because for the first time in like 6 years I think I might be dating someone and Im happy about it. I think Ive kinda sorta almost dated two people in six years and was never happy about either despite them being nice handsome people... so the song also is suiting my feelings at the moment. SHHHHH!

Fabulous David, thank you for digging up this treasure. I love this sound and I miss music like this. It just reminds me so much of being a kid and watching cheesy teen films on HBO while my parents were a sleep. OH, how I miss the 80's and my big hair...

They also did a really cool new-wave song with Jane Wiedlin (of the Go-Go's) called "Cool Places" :) ♫

... was my favorite song, not just because it was catchy and novel but, as you say, the lyrics are amazing. Thanks for the flashback!
