Song of the Day - March 24, 2006

This is the number one song in my house right now. Every family member is addicted and my daughter is constantly singing the lyrics both at home and in her school. Sparks released "Ugly Guys with Beautiful Girls" a few years ago, and it flew under my radar. The song is not your typical rock anthem, rather it starts with subdued strings and mellow vocals, almost elevator like, only to disrupted by the female chorus of "wop, wop, wop..." and jarring guitars. This strange addictive chorus alternates with spoken vocals done in an almost documentary style. The overall effect just grabs you and will not let you go. I warn you that one listen will not be enough. Click here to listen.
