Sam Sparro ”I Wish I Never Met You”

Australian-born singer Sam Sparro was born in 1982 and, by the sounds of things, is still living there – sporting a slicked-down New Romantic hairdo and a slick-up Errol Flynn-by-way-of-Ultravox mustache that would make even John Oates shudder as he rhymes “crackhead” with “blackhead”. This song, I believe, is what happens when you place your collection of Spandau Ballet 12″ singles above interpersonal relationships: deliciously nasty synthesizer soul.
