I'm thinking this is the song where Steve Buscemi applies red lipstick. Billy Madison.

This song makes me weep like...like some old Grandmother that has out lived all her children! The desperation in Jeff Lynn's voice! Say's it all!

Love all of this music, This is the one thing that takes you back in time for just a couple of seconds . I still believe that I will live forever, these songs brought peace and solis to my experiencing America. Coming from Central America I new what it was like to really be thankful for the life I had been given. Thank you mom for making these dreams of America become a reality. ��

back in their day ELO were the closest thing to being truly 'unique' and yet not somebody trying to be different, just to be different... I wore this double-album out as a young foolish guy...and now that I'm an old foolish guy, I'm wore out...alas.. . J a y - E L O or is it Jay-ELLO?

The extraordinar y thing about this song is that it takes so long to build. It's flat-out pop, but it begins with a SFX of the ring tone, then noodles about nicely but doesn't get to the hook for a minute and a half. That's the power of good writing and musicianship . Very well produced.

I love this song and ELO after all these years.

Sad to think how songs like this in their simplicity and lack of cynicism and 'coolness' can't even begin to make it into the (mostly) crap pop music lineup today

A Truly Great Band, A GREAT SONG, and one of the greatest song writers ever - Jeff Lynn. But they should have never worked with Olivia Newton John or disco. It killed ELOs rep.
