I never knew this existed until now, and I wonder what Ron Mael thinks of it?
I assume McCartney is a Sparks fan if he is willing to spoof Mael in his own video, or maybe it was just an easy impression, even if he does it well. He also does Hank Marvin, but not so well, and I assume some of the other “band” members—they’re called The Plastic Macs, geddit?—are spoofs of other musicians from the period, too.
I’m not a McCartney fan really, but this IS a cracking tune:
Paul McCartney “Coming Up” (1980)
