    Thank you Paul. Do you also have Rosebud and Just Got Back From Heaven?

    You’re welcome Omar. I will check 🙂

    When it comes to myself, I think that sometimes a summation would be the title to this classic song by the Sparks!! Heck, I really do think that a majority of us do really have sex on the brain, which is indeed, the true sex organ of the body. Not that we all think about sex — !!!Constantly!!! — but it sometimes is always there in the back of our minds, etc. Oh Paul, perfect time to unleash this record on us. It’s Spring after all and a lot of us are indeed “sprung” and ready for action as the weather is nicer and buds are starting to blossom. I am so “stimulated” that you have presented this single to us: all 12-inches of it!!! Forgive the provocations, but, with a record like this, I just can’t help it.

    DjPaulT,you really champion so many records that I myself swoon over. I sometimes feel that I’m in such a minority because my tastes for 80’s tunes are askew from so many others. Sure I love my mainstream dance extensions, but I so love when I can hear music that makes my ears perk up in aroused attention!! I love sounds that are different from the same old, same old. You present it all. I love the balance here on Burning The Ground. We do indeed get a well-rounded, all-encompassing diversity here on your site. I so wish others would comment on the new sounds/singles they might never have heard before until now. I really enjoy reading how a “strange new record/song” might be a new favorite. Thank you Paul ever so much for providing a Mecca for the unusual and WILD!! It’s a great contrast to the tons of old favorites here that are part of BTG’s diverse discography!! It’s all just marvelous!!!

    You’re welcome Jeff. My goal is to bring music for the masses I really enjoy digging out the lesser known stuff. Sure we can hear Madonna or MJ just about everywhere but the obscure ones not so much. I hope more people will start joining the conversation on the lesser known not just the hits 🙂

    Love this group, saw them live back in 1974..

    Ron was still wearing his now trademark white shirt, tie etc..

    Thanks for the rip Paul! 🙂

    Thanks a lot Paul. This song by The Sparks is new to me but it sounds great. Just watched the original video on Youtube. It’s really funny.

    You’re welcome Daniel 🙂


  5. Song_and_Dance Says:

    Nice one, thank you Paul. I must admit I only really knew their hit singles “When Do I Get To Sing ´My Way´” and “Now That I Own The BBC” from 1994/95. I feel I should take a closer look at their work.


    DjPaulT Reply:

    They have a pretty nice catalog Song_and_Dance. Check it out 🙂

    This was on heavy rotation on KROQ in Los Angeles, along with Cool Places, and I with I looked A Little Better, from the same album


  7. memoryboy Says:

    I know this song well, as I have it on my iPod, and I own several copies of this remix on CD. I’ve always enjoyed this song. I think my favorite Sparks song is “When I’m With You”. But I am a big Sparks fan, and this rip will sound fantastic I’m sure when I give it a listen. I am very picky about sound quality, and I find your rips to sound great Paul.

    On another note, regarding sound quality, I recently got my copy of Dead Or Alive’s Boom Box Set, and I feel the sound quality on it was not that great. Any one else notice that?

    Anyways, thanks for this Sparks classic, and the B-Side track in also great.


  8. Bob Says:

    Nobody’s mentioning the identity of the lass on the cover?


    Elixir Sue Reply:

    Unless my memory has really worsened – which it may very well have – I believe the lovely lady on the cover is Chynna Phillips (of Wilson Phillips fame, the daughter of the lovely Michelle Phillips of The Mamas & The Papas, and half-sister of actress Mackenzie Phillips). I believe that Chynna was president of the official Sparks Fan Club during her youthful days of the LA music scene.
