SPARKS : NEVER TURN YOUR BACK ON MOTHER EARTH [PROPAGANDA, 1974]

Δυόμισι λεπτά τελειότητας, και μια ευχή στην εκκεντρική ιδιοφυία που γιορτάζει σήμερα : Ο κιμπορντίστας – συνθέτης Ron Mael, ο άνθρωπος πίσω από τα τραγούδια των Sparks, γεννήθηκε στις 12 Αυγούστου 1945 στο Κάλβερ Σίτι της Καλιφόρνια.

Two-and-a-half minutes of perfection, and a wish for the eccentric genius who has his birthday : The keyboard player – composer
Ron Mael, the man behind the Sparks song catalog, was born on the 12th of August, 1945 in Culver City, California.

When she’s on her best behavior
Don’t be tempted by her favor
Never turn your back on mother Earth
Towns are hurled from A to B
By hands that look so smooth to me
Never turn your back on mother Earth
Grasp at straws that don’t want grasping
Gaze at clouds that come down crashing
Never turn your back on mother Earth
Three days and two nights away from my friends
Amen to anything that brings a quick return to my friends
Never turn your back on mother Earth
I’ll admit I was unfaithful
But from now I’ll be more faithful
Never turn your back on mother
Never turn your back on mother
Never turn your back on mother Earth

      I think because it certainly fits with his voice. He could sing it equally good!

    I remember Sparks, the band we’ve never heard of.. but not this song.
    Thank you!

    If only the words of this song had been heeded in 1974 . . .

    I agree, this song has a Freddie Mercury sound to it, beautiful with such profound lyrics.
