To be honest I do credit Mr Blue Sky with introducing me to ELO, Turn to Stone and Don't Bring Me Down were also on a Doctor Who episode. So I guess I'll always have a bit of a soft spot for Mr Blue Sky. It's not like their best song because to me stuff off Time or Discovery, stuff like that is better
Even though I feel so down I can't get up, I'm still holding on tight to my dreams...
That MBS could well stand for Mr. Bullshit as far as I'm concerned...
May I ask why you say that, Helmut? Just curious.
Of course you may.
I don't like Mr. Blue Sky much. I think it's a pretty mediocre song, but the main problem I have with it is not that I find it mediocre (Jeff has done a lot of worse stuff IMO); the problem is that it is by far ELO's most well-known song and I think it is not representative of ELO's greatness nor of Jeff Lynne's genius. Not at all. It is the flagship song of the band but it gives a false and unfair image of what ELO's music is about.

eloneen: Happy Thanksgiving! I was cooking the brussels sprouts (my contribution to the annual extended family feast) earlier and our son said "Ooooo! Smells like Thanksgiving in here!" ::m0134::

BIuebird: Happy Thanksgiving! My dad is going to teach me how to make the family bread filling this year, so that I know how to do it "when [he] croaks," his words, not mine. He's so optimistic.

BSJ: Absolutely you have to learn that stuffing recipe, BIuebird! It's the best part of the Thanksgiving meal!

BSJ: I'll be back, I need to go rake! AGAIN! Thanks Horace

eloneen: Sooo much good food! Lots of happy times with family! I love Thanksgiving!

BSJ: Learned a few family secrets this Thanksgiving. Golden.
Nov 28, 2019 23:46:46 GMT
eloneen: Hopefully they were fun family secrets and not the kind that make people upset when the TRUTH is revealed!
Nov 28, 2019 23:57:32 GMT
BSJ: Any family secret, fun or not, any truth has someone uncomfortable. As the generations die it’s easily shared. Grand fun they will have with me. They better! Or what’s the point.

eloneen: BIuebird So, how did it go? Has the torch been officially passed?
Nov 29, 2019 13:12:09 GMT
BIuebird: eloneen It went well! Everyone said the filling was good, so I guess I didn't mess it up too much.

BSJ: Congratulations BIuebird!

eloneen: BIuebird Success! Great news! I'm glad everyone enjoyed it!

BIuebird: Thanks, BSJ and eloneen! My dad told everyone that if it tasted funny this year, it was because I made it.
Dec 1, 2019 13:10:46 GMT
BSJ: ... or his taste buds are off!

BIuebird: I like your explanation better, BSJ!
