Freebase

  1. Sparks

    Sparks is an American band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by brothers Ron and Russell Mael, renamed from Halfnelson, formed in 1968. Best known for their quirky approach to songwriting, Sparks' music is often accompanied by intelligent, sophisticated, and acerbic lyrics, and an idiosyncratic, theatrical stage presence, typified in the contrast between Russell's wide-eyed hyperactive frontman antics and Ron's sedentary scowling. They are also noted for Russell Mael's falsetto voice and Ron Mael's keyboard style. Though the band's long career has seen them successfully pioneer many different musical genres; including glam rock, power pop, electronic dance music, mainstream pop and most recently chamber pop, Sparks have created their own unique musical universe. While achieving chart success in various countries around the world including United Kingdom, Germany, France, and the United States, they have enjoyed a cult following since their first releases. Sparks have been highly influential on the development of popular music, in particular on the late 1970s scene, when in collaboration with Giorgio Moroder, they reinvented themselves as an electronic pop duo, and abandoned the traditional rock band line up. Their frequently changing styles and visual presentations have kept the band at the forefront of modern, artful pop music. They are held in esteem by such bands and performers as Kurt Cobain, Cait Brennan, Dax Riggs, Franz Ferdinand, Morrissey, Arcade Fire, MGMT, Sonic Youth, Ramones, Duran Duran, Björk, Depeche Mode, New Order, Def Leppard, Faith No More, The Pixies, Ween, Mark Burgess of the Chameleons, Paul McCartney and They Might Be Giants, all of whom cite Sparks as a major influence.

Examples of sparks in a Sentence

  1. Christine Simmons:

    Tolers lawyer Dawn Collins told The Associated Press, referring to Tolers postgame comments. Coaches speak to their players to get them fired up, many coaches use harsher language and far more controversial language. If the term is not OK, its not OK for everyone. But Toler said initially Eric Holoman had publicly dismissed accounts Eric Holoman or Sparks players were offended by her language and that only later when the decision came under scrutiny that she was let go because of the outburst. It is unclear who within the Sparks organization Toler registered her complaints with about the alleged Simmons-Holoman relationship. However, Toler said in the suit that even after Christine Simmons left the organization in 2018 Christine Simmons had influence on decisions the team would make because of Christine Simmons personal relationship with Eric Holoman. Toler said Christine Simmons was looking into trading Parker, but because Christine Simmons and Parker were close Eric Holoman wouldnt let Christine Simmons make a deal. I wasnt part of the clique, Toler told the AP. Every day people would have no idea what I went through here working for the Sparks after they were acquired by this ownership.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I sometimes think that we are like Stars in the Galaxy, the Time-travellers, millions and trillions of them are being born and being deceased every moment, as I write this note. Those who are being born right now cannot be seen by us, until the light from them should reach to us after many centuries or milleniums to come. The Stars twinkle, brighten our world, and many a times they burst into Supernova to illuminate the whole of universe. Just like Stars, we too like to leave our marks, with our divine sparks of intelligence that transform into our creations, writings, paintings, poetry, and inventions etc, something that we always struggle to salvage from the inebitable great dance of death. And each Star thus becomes the mirror that reflects that divine light within us, the humans and all the life on Earth alike.

  3. Samuel Johnson:

    Our brightest blazes of gladness are commonly kindled by unexpected sparks.

  4. Benjamin Franklin:

    He that blows the coals in quarrels that he has nothing to do with, has no right to complain if the sparks fly in his face

  5. Alighieri Dante:

    Pride, envy, avarice -- these are the sparks have set on fire the souls of man.
