Words by Mr Tom M Ford
"Us & Ourselves"
MORNING PARADE
Since forming in 2007, the five-piece Morning Parade has produced consistent anthemic rock hits, capturing the imagination of a troop of fans, including Vogue and MTV. Currently enjoying a fizz of anticipation for their debut album Morning Parade (out at the end of the month), Mr Sparrow reveals just some of his all-time favourite tunes.

"You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar But I Feel Like a Millionaire"
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE

"This always gets me fired up. If I had to save the world from a zombie invasion, I would choose this for my soundtrack."
"The Art Teacher"
RUFUS WAINWRIGHT

"This was the first song I ever heard by Rufus and I was hooked. His way with words and metre is like no other. I love how he pulls you around with his twists and turns using melody, metre, chord progressions and clever word play."
"Perfect Day"
LOU REED

"An all-time classic, I don't think there is much I could say that hasn't already been said. I always come back to it because it's a genius piece of songwriting."
"Let Down"
RADIOHEAD

"I am a huge fan of Radiohead, and every record holds something special for me. "Let Down" is one that I always come back to. The melody, the sentiment behind the song, the production and Thom's delivery on this recording are all in perfect sync."
"Lover, You Should've Come Over"
JEFF BUCKLEY

"I love all of Grace [the album], but this is a song that has always stuck out for me. Lyrically, I think it's one of his finest moments and a great example of an artist getting to the heart of the matter. It's very open and honest, a true heartbreaker."
