Sparks
Ron & Russell Mael

Story

Since resolutions and predictions for 2016 will prevail in the next few days, I thought I'd share what brothers Ron and Russell Mael predicted back in 1982. The Sparks were never in danger of being a OHW since they've had a prolific career spanning the past 40 years and are even cited as influences by dozens of other performers, from the Ramones to Bjork to Paul McCartney to Franz Ferdinand. In the 80s alone they collaborated with the likes of Giorgio Morodor and Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Gos and appeared on the Valley Girl soundtrack. However, this was their first foray into the Billboard Charts (peaking at #60) and while the song may have faded out, the Sparks certainly have not (I predict).

Happy New Year!
