Read the post above and played "Look What They've Done to My Son" at 1.25 speed, and the resemblance to "Hold On Tight" is uncanny in specific aspects, even if the former contains a number of different bridges and is distinctly awash in a 1920s French cabaret aesthetic (at least the New Seekers version) - "Hold On Tight" did contain an entire verse of French lyrics though, which seems to reinforce the coincidental (or are they?) similarities.
The very end string section/bridge on "Whitchita linesman" by Glenn Campbell always reminds me of E.L.O. as does "Music" by John Miles......as does and I apologise for this one S.O.S. by Abba. And noi am not comparing Jeff or E.L.O. to ABBA. As I have a severe pain in my nuts to those who do! Anyway thur ye have it!
I sincerely hope this is not a difamation to ABBA.
ABBA is as legendary as ELO. If there is a VIP section in heaven only for legends, all four from ABBA have access to the VIP inside the VIP.

If you relax and listen to that part of Sun King where John goes "Quando para mucho mi amore de felice corazón" you'll get the same feeling of being deep under the sea as on The Whale.
Also, at least to me The Whale sounds as some level music from a Sonic the Hedgehog game. I'm not sure which game and which level, but everytime I hear The Whale, I feel like I'm controlling the blue guy.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
