Spargo are a Dutch band, formed in 1975, known for their hits "You and Me", "Head Up to the Sky", "One Night Affair", "Just For You" and "Hip Hap Hop" in the 1980s.

Spargo was formed by Ruud Mulder, Hans Elbersen (both of whom had played in the blues rock group Space 7), Ellert Driessen, Jef Nassenstein and Leander Lammertink. Elbersen left the band and in 1979 American singer Lilian Day Jackson, stepdaughter of jazz drummer Art Blakley, joined. With Jackson and Driessen as lead vocalists, the band got its distinctive sound and got its breakthrough.
In 1980, the single "You and Me" topped the charts in the Netherlands and also became the best-selling record there in 1980. The single was also very successful across Europe, in Belgium, Germany, Iceland and Sweden. Between August 1980 and March 1982, Spargo achieved four more top-5 hits in the Netherlands, but the success of "You and Me" was not to be equalled.
Between October 1982 and March 1984, the band achieved a further 4 top-40 hits, but none were as successful as their previous singles.
'Goodbye' reached No 29 in the Dutch Top 40 on 8 januari 1983.
