Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “Your Call Is Very Important To Us, Please Hold” by Sparks

More Sparks for NOW people! Yesterday, I posted a Sparks track from their 1974 “Propaganda” record…today we have a track from their “Lil’ Beethoven” album released in 2002. Sparks’ concept on “Lil’ Beethoven” was to meld their songs with lush orchestral backing, creating a rather ornate listening experience. Ornate is it, but all the orchestras in the world can’t obscure the singular brand of humor that the Mael brothers bring to their craft. Other great songs from this record include “How Do I Get To Carnegie Hall?” (practice man practice), “I Married Myself” and “What Are All These Bands So Angry About.”
