I’ve had this song running through my head for hours. Steve Martin’s “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” from that wonderfully cheesy Bee Gees & Frampton infused film adaptation of the Beatles’ classic album, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”. I actually have the soundtrack on vinyl. And I’m not ashamed to say that I love every little second of it.
For some reason I couldn’t stop listening to this last night. And, really, if it doesn’t make you feel like singing along, writing an epic love song, or just going on a really long 80s binge, you might have to check for a pulse.
My sister reminded me today of what an excellent song this is. I’d almost forgotten about it up til now, but only I had the pleasure of redirecting her to the German version of this long-forgotten hit.
My entire world comes to a halt when I hear this song. Wherever I am, and whatever I’m doing, I need to stop and listen. Then I remember what I love in this life.
No static at all.
1-2-3, what are we fighting for?
Very cool to see the video I uploaded last night be circulated on Tumblr within hours. And since this page is mainly about Sparkin’, let there be Sparks! It’s almost ‘Equator Day’ anyway. ;D
A weird/great live Sparks performance of “Equator” from 1976.
Another rare recording I uploaded some time ago. This is Sparks’ “A Trying Day”. It is believed to date back to 1979 or 1980. It’s a pleasant little song.
The Beatles, “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” is an 8-minute eargasm to zone out to, with or without the synthetic aid of drugs. Love it, or leave it. Legendary.
"There’s nobody in the future, so baby, let me hand you my love."
I’ll never tire of this wonderful song. Killer guitar, too.
A song forgotten in time. Nick Gilder on lead vocals; “Roxy Roller” was later covered by Suzi Quatro. Love this track.
I haven’t heard Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” in so very long. Enjoy it with me; this is a classic masterpiece.
