Sparks

Sparks are an American pop band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by brothers Ron (keyboards) and Russel Mael (vocals), renamed from Halfnelson, formed in 1968. Known for their quirky approach to songwriting, Sparks' music is often accompanied by intelligent, sophisticated, and acerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic, theatrical stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell’s animated, hyperactive frontman antics and Ron’s deadpan scowling. They are also noted for Russell Mael’s falsetto voice and Ron Mael’s keyboard style.

Sparks are best known for the songs This Town Ain’t Big Enough for Both of Us, which reached number 2 in the British charts in 1974; the electronic hit The Number One Song in Heaven in 1979; When I’m With You which topped the French Charts in 1980; the single I Predict, which provided Sparks' first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching No. 60 in May 1982; the 1983 single Cool Places with Go-Go Jane Wiedlin, and When Do I Get To Sing 'My Way' which topped the German and European charts in 1994/95 and was the top airplay record in Germany for 1994.

Though they never had any major hits in the U.S., their presence has long been felt in corners big and small. The core duo of brothers Ron and Russell Mael have been at it since the late ’60s, making music that has always been out of step with the conventional idea of rock and roll.
