Perfection. I love ELO.

ELO is one of the best! The way they encompass strings and rock together is truly magical.
Report...
ELO had a very distinctive sound. Unique! Unmistakable ! Jeff Lynne added his voice stylings to the Wilburys. Wouldn't have been the same without him!

A fantastic band that sounded completely unlike anything else. Loved the classical, melodic blend of music.

E.L.O. is strange magic; how wonderful they are.

Fabulous song with gorgeous vocals by Jeff. Another of those songs from teen years, got to love the music of the 70's (just ignore the disco part)
Report...
I LOVE E.L.O.!!!!!

For years, I didn't know what the heck they were saying. My closest guess was gotta strain my dick, but I was pretty sure that couldn't be right....

I Worked For My Local Fireworks In The Mid- 90's And I Got To Meet The band, And They Put On One Hell Of A Show !

Brilliant use of strings and production. ELO is simple in style, but the music can be very complex.
Report...
Lynn singing in his John Lennon voice.
Report...
There are so many nuances to ELO's stuff. Strange Magic is talking about The Holy Spirit. Jeff Lynn was hanging with The Beatles during the years they were experimentin g with different religions. Listen to their songs with a different ear. Rev. Rob
Report...
Love it!!!!!!!!! Kind of eerie.
Report...
One of my favorite songs of all time...
Report...
love this song!

ELo was one of the great sounds of the 70's. I will always remember the first time I saw them in Boston, coming out of a space ship. It was awesome, very talented musicians. Wish they were still around. I'd definitely see them in concert. I saw part of the band about 12 years ago in Florida. They were fantiastic!!
Report...
The background music sounds really similar to another song, but I can't put my finger on what it is. I like this one.
Report...
Herald get a life dude!You are strange person. You must not appreciate good music!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! !
Report...
Pandora claims a similar song is "It's Still Rock And Roll To Me" by Billy Joel. No wonder it keeps giving me crep matches
Report...
excellent song from an excellent album.
Report...
ELO not being in the RNRHOF never occurred to me!! But it is odd. Maybe ELO got tarred with the Disco brush inasmuch as they were roughly contemporary . But then the most shocking ELO ever was involved exposing their belly buttons on their third album. Who knows?
Report...
Jeff Lynne has never gotten the credit/accla i m he has deserved. What I find interesting, is the 'rock and roll hall of fame' has not taken in Jeff Lynne/ELO. Oh, but the 'Clash' is in it. What a joke. I'm sure Jeff isn't losing any sleep over it.
