Sparks - The Number One Song In Heaven

What is it about Fridays that get me in the mood for some Sparks...? Picked this 7" up at a charity shop recently for the princely sum of 50p. I've only ever had the full-length version before, but the A-side features the 7" mix. Interestingly, the B-side has the extended version but I've not included that as it's available all over the place.

This is my funeral tune, as listed on (I thoughtfully copied in all of my family on the link), but I'm going for the full length one just to get my money's worth from the mourners. The coffin can get lowered into the fire just as it gets to where this 7" version kicks in.

I still can't believe the stuff they were coming out with in 1979, here's a clip of it on TOTP from back in the day courtesy of YouTube. What did we do before YouTube, eh..?

great find - been looking for this. Love this song. It's a finish work on Friday and dance around the living room before going out, for sure.
