I like the harmonies and the rockabilly influence which was so hot in the 80's. And it doesn't hurt that they threw in a verse in French. Good beat, solid melody.

This is a pleasant ELO song but isn't my favorite from them. With the heavy sound of the drummer kicking out a catchy but almost robotic rhythm and with the over-the-top harmonies so typical of 1970s and early 1980s progressive rock (think Queen), this song sounds like a knockoff of ELO's earlier, superior song Don't Bring Me Down but with a less memorable melody and with a rockabilly influence.

The melody is similar to What have they done to my song by Melanie Safka:

That song even has a French refrain, just like this one. Hmmm.

I like this song quite a bit. The French lines in the middle are a good touch.
