I first heard this song in a film called Billy Madison. Steve Buscemi!!!!
Breakups suck !
yeah, what jmid just said, I couldn't explain it any better, Telephone lines is one ELO song that really does it for me.

Don't you realize the things we did, we did, were all for real, not a dream? I just can't believe they've all faded out of view...
Elo rocks
ELO at their best! Go out and find A New World Record and listen to the whole thing. Awesome!
HaHa! What a fool! Telephones don't have lines....YOL O BRO!
When I was young I thought this was the Bee Gees. The backup vocals sound like the Gibbs, so I can see the comparison.
Just awesome elo rocks
Ugh I love this song.
This song is so beautiful, and sad. Perfect
Yeah.. You put that lipstick on, Buscemi.
OMG I lov this song!!

My brother had so many albums. I would sneak and listen to them. ELO was always a fav my brothers gone now this brings him near
I love love love this band...
Back to the 70s how many bands can you name that had a actual orchestra playing with them. Innovators. Gotta love it. PEACE. Let's find a cure for cancer and stop all the pain and suffering.
Happy I heard this as a 'll kid; it made me such a sentimental for AWESOME MUSIC.
Jeff Lynne is one of the greatest singer/ songwriter/ producers of all time I love elo.......

ELO is so diverse in their music, yet their vocals are so distinct. I love these guys.

YEAH,YEAH,YE A H . . .
This is one of Jeff Lynne's and ELO's finest works. His skill as an arranger really shines on this track. It still reminds me of past heartbreak(s ) many years after first hearing it.
