Electric Light Orchestra:

I really liked E.L.O. back in the day (although if I tried to list some of their songs by memory, I'd be pretty hard-pressed to come up with some titles). I remember the sound, just not really the songs. I do remember a couple, but their titles escape me at the moment. I can't remember if I posted them yet or not. I'd do a search through my site, but that just takes so much time....

One of my all time favorite groups. Unlike anything else and really of their time. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when I hear one of their songs.

Ann: How could I forget "evil woman"????

Cal: They were excellent. I wonder where they all are now.

joe said...

"Can't get it out of my head" is one of my favorites too.

Remember the elo "Laser Light Show " at our local planetarium.Awesome.

joe said...

That must have been some show.

joe said...

Actually, Ann, I'm looking at your list and I think "Strange Music" was "strange magic". But either way, it's all good. ;>)

ELO brings back the memories!!!

joe said...

I've never heard another band like them since.

joe said...

Sweet talkin' woman was also one of my faves.

Love ELO - I have a few of their songs on my music player on my blog!

joe said...

I had no idea so many of you guys liked ELO.
I love you all.

I've got some of their songs on one of my Imeem playlists.

You'll be ultra-impressed to know that I have a purple vinyl ELO 45 of Sweet Talkin' Woman. I'll never sell it--it's stuck on my bulletin board over my desk.

My all-time favorite ELO song is "Jungle." It's not one of their biggest hits, but I love all the diverse sounds it incorporates. Hell, I just love me some ELO and their mad orchestrational skillz. Jeff Lynne is a GOD.

joe said...

Hairball: Cool.

Kim: Purple vinyl?? I've never seen one of those. Send me a pic of it, if you can.

I LOVE ELO! Another band I earned to appreciate from my mother! I like all of their songs but my favorites are Waterfall and Telephone Line.

joe said...

I really should buy one of their CD's...

Kim said...

I'm not at home to take a pic of my 45, Joe, but here's one on Ebay that's exactly the same as mine:

They only want $2.50 for it, so I guess I won't be retiring on the proceeds from the sale of mine. :o(

Kim said...

Whoops...try this link; the other one won't work.

Hey that's cool. My folks had a coouple of red records, but I've never seen a purple one. If I had a record player I might bid.
