The 10 best Faith No More songs not written by Faith No More

5) This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us – Sparks (1974)
The baroque zeal of Sparks’ best-known single was already an absolute winner. It still is. Brothers Ron and Russell Mael revisited their catalogue on Sparks’ 1997 Plagiarism, enlisting Faith No More to guest on Something For The Girl With Everything and This Town Ain’t Big Enough For Both Of Us. The latter is sillier, heavier and even more bombastic than the original, Patton’s Donald Duck wails sprinkling the track with a little grit. Sparks were actually invited to play this alongside the band at the Hollywood Palladium in 2010, bringing with them live guitarist Dean Menta, who also toured as Faith No More’s axeman on the King For A Day… Fool For A Lifetime run. So that was nice.
