Lab Track: I Can’t Believe That You Would Fall For All The Crap In This Song

For today’s lab track, the title says it all. Sparks is a band that dates back to the early 70s known for their off-kilter lyrics and whimsical stage presence. I discovered them for this skeptical tune, but have since delved further because they’re just generally awesome (You can pick up the album that contains this track here). Enjoy!

    So what was I doing right before reading/listening to this? Listening to Tim Minchin’s If I didn’t have you (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gaid72fqzNE) because of what if?’s blog on “Soul Mates” http://what-if.xkcd.com/9/ . And yesterday I had to look up this old partially clips http://partiallyclips.com/2005/01/02/dinner-date/ as it was referenced from the newest one. http://partiallyclips.com/2012/08/26/romantic-couple/
    Coincidence? Yeah, I suppose it just has to be. 😀
