Interview: The List


The List (April 10, 2017)
Interview: Sparks – 'The rules only apply within your universe and it may or may not jive with the outside world'


"Sometimes it's hard because the words don't necessarily roll off the tongue as easily as you'd hope, but I always embrace the unexpected in the lyrics and not moan or whine about the difficulty of having to sing something that is not just some "moon in June" sort of lyric."
