    1. I don’t know what’;s weirder… Ron in a full suit playing on a standup keyboard…or the band wearing Exotic Creatures t-shirts.

    2. Awesome !!! I loved Sparks music in the seventees…and this video really took me back a lot of years….
      Russel sings like in the good old days….Cheers to the u.l.

    3. This is who should have replaced Freddy Mercury when he passed! And not in the Rock and Roll hall of fame is a travesty! These guys one day will be gone, and most will have never heard of their brilliance!

    4. f*ck, they are so Good.

      my surreal moment was singing ‘Propaganda’ _in front of the Mael Bros_ ….voice high on helium, as a teenager, at one of their Promo appearances.

      Ah, Los Angeles, you are a stupidly weird place in the Universe.

    5. Loved them in 74, & still love them today, have all their albums on vinyl and on my iPhone…Russell Mael is still so cool after all these years :0)

    6. Perfect rendition. Russell’s voice is even better now than it was in the 70’s. Absolutely phenomenal musicianship.

    7. Hi, have you thought about this method called the Intellitus Cash System? (google it). My sister says it makes people plenty of cash.

    8. If you desire to earn extra income, you should look up on google Zerlux Cash Code. They can help you get the income you deserve.

    9. WOW!! Just So so WOW! Loved seeing you in NY. Now I’m at home, I have homework, at work and you were my only play…. heheheheheh

      You’ve got to catch her while she’s still at home,
      You’ve got to catch her while she’s at work,
      You’ve got to catch her while she’s at play….

    10. I have acquired so much wealth thanks to Firepa.com ! I am making over $3,000+ per month! Visit FIREPA.COM and start making money now! I am so happy I found Firepa.com 🙂 Life is good, indeed.

      The detail amends the damp statement.

      The harmony lists the second blood.

    11. I LOVE Ron Maels piano arrangement in this . He really is a great composer, he’s so under-appreciated its unreal.

    12. they actually ARE super famous, you just don’t hear much about them anymore , but back in 1974/75 thereabouts they were HUGE. In Britain and all over Europe they were superstars, and enjoyed some fairly wide success in N.A. with Propaganda, though they didn’t get much air play in America. Something for the Girl With Everything was a world wide hit, so quite a few people remember them.They were all over TV for awhile too.

    13. My favourite Sparks song(in case you were interested)
       Epic in its scope. Unpredictable and electric.
      A Little Beethoven,perhaps.
      They just had to better “This Town..” and they pulled it off.

    14. The most creative band of all time. Can’t believe they have not had massive world wide success. The diversity and incredible lyrical content of Sparks songs over a forty year period is unmatched. These guys are nothing short of musical genius’s.

    15. I remember them doing a TV appearance playing this song back in ’73 or ’74. I can’t find it anywhere. If anyone has that, get it up here!

    16. outstanding job!!!!! absolutely incredible!!!!!   sounding this good after how many DECADES?!!!!!?   I’ve always loved this album and it’s brilliant compositions.   beautiful job.

    17. A great track in traffic.
      A surfeit of attitude when you need it most.
      “Time really flies when there ain’t that much time…”

    18. “Hello soldier boy,”
      oh boy, she’s spewing out her propaganda, propaganda
      Might makes right, though you’re wrong,
      you’re right to fight her propaganda, propaganda, propaganda
      “Come to our side”, she does say
      “Come on over”, she does say
      Well I don’t need more
      Competition for
      Her affection
      You should fight on
      Fight on
      Over there

      At home, at work, at play
      I know you’re unavailable from dusk to dawn
      Or if you were available you’d bring along
      A lot of what could only be a hindrance to me
      I ain’t a glutton for a lot of sweaty company
      You gotta catch her while she’s still at home
      You gotta catch her while she’s still at work
      You gotta catch her while she’s still at play
      The only way is at home, work, or play
      And time is fleeing the scene of the crime
      The act of passing out wrinkles and lines
      To every person regardless of race
      To every person regardless of face
      Stop, there’s gotta be a million girls like her though
      I can’t think of one
      So you catch her while she’s still at home
      And you catch her while she’s still at work
      And you catch her while she’s still at play
      Don’t let her calendar be any cause to pout
      There is a bit of time when there are few about
      I’m gonna skirt the issue of her popularity
      And just avail myself of all the time that she is free
      You gotta catch her while she’s still at home
      You gotta catch her while she’s still at work
      You gotta catch her while she’s still at play
      Cause half the day she’s at home, work or play
      And time is fleeing the scene of the crime
      The act of passing out wrinkles and lines
      To every person regardless of race
      To every person regardless of face
      Stop, there’s gotta be a million girls like her though
      I can’t think of one
      So at home she says you butler well
      And at work she says you’re typing well
      And at play she says you caddie well
      At home, at work, at play
      Stop, There’s gotta be a million girls like her though
      I can’t think of one
      So you catch her while she’s still at home
      And you catch her while she’s still at work
      And you catch her while she’s still at play
      I’m gonna love you under incandescent light
      I’m gonna love you under fluorescent light
      The glaring sun above should not inhibit us at all
      I’m very glad to know that your libido never palls
      Stop, she’s unique, especially at home
      Where you’re butler, maid, and often cook
      And at work together juggling books
      Or at play before she’s placed her bet

    19. “Propaganda”

      “Hello soldier boy,”
      oh boy, shes spewing out her propaganda, propaganda
      Might makes right, though you’re wrong,
      you’re right to fight her propaganda, propaganda, propaganda

      “Come to our side”, she does say
      “Come on over”, she does say
      Well I don’t need more
      Competition for
      Her affection
      You should fight on
      Fight on
      Over there
