Don’t fear ELO – A lesson in the Electric Light Orchestra

Elo_1Electric Light Orchestra, or ELO, are one of those bands that people who are too cool for school love to dislike. They don’t mind ‘Mr Blue Sky’, but they certainly wouldn’t say it out loud. Well, Jeff Lynne wrote some of the best pop songs ever, and no-one within sniffing distance of a record shop would admit it. Don’t believe me? Check out the psychpop justice of 10538 Overture… it’ll rewire your mind for certain. If that doesn’t do it, there is the marvellous summer romp of Livin’ Thing, which is part Beatles, part Darlin’ by the Beach Boys… and if that aint the right ingredients, I dunno whut is! Still not convinced? Check this mental version of Roll Over Beethoven. If you don’t like this, there is something seriously wrong with your ears.[Mof Gimmers]
