‘Please Don’t Fuck Up My World’

Sparks have created a gorgeously lush ballad about our planet. They must be really serious in their message, since they have employed a chorus of children to appeal to our senses. In Sparks’ usual twisted way, they have ensured that it will never get played on the radio by inserting the F-word in its title and lyrics. Ron has successfully used this tactic before on ‘The Angels’ (Balls, 2000). The theme of respecting nature is a continuation of ‘Never Turn Your Back on Mother Earth’ (Propaganda 1974). Another classic and ironic Sparks device is to waste an entire pad of paper by writing one line of the lyric on each page in the song’s video!

Another classic and ironic Sparks device is to waste an entire pad of paper by writing one line of the lyric on each page in the song’s video! Once again, we are able to listen to something very beautiful by Sparks (with an orchestral interlude) while laughing hysterically at their trademark irony. Great job as always! – mb
