In praise of ELO

Post by The Co=Ordinator on Sun Nov 09, 2008 10:06 am

I've PUT two ELO tracks in Aladdin. They were an awesome, ground breaking band. Jeff Lynne's musicality is top drawer and he also has a fantastic vocal range.

Folks, I invite you to genuflect to The Electric Light Orchestra. Smile

Consider me permanently genuflected - For I too recognise the sheer awesomeness of Mister Lynne and his musically superb band.

Hmmm...I wonder which one that could possibly be? Surely not the one my then 6 year old nephew and all his friends at school were humming for weeks following its inclusion in an episode of a certain televisual treat of our acquaintance...?

Curses! Beaten to the punch!

I'll be on the Telephone Line to somebody over this!

I was introduced to ELO by The Divine Comedy - at the Manchester Apollo (many, many years ago) they, along with a full orchestra, covered 'Mr Blue Sky'...
