I think that top 3 has been unchanged for more than 30 years. If I was to update my ELO favourites list on a regular basis,it's only further down where the positions might change. One Summer Dream is one song I like now more than ever before.
Not my all-time top 3, but currently: - Down Came the Rain - Ma-Ma-Ma Belle - From Out of Nowhere (was enamored with it when it was first released, then it dropped off my radar for a bit, now I've discovered it produces a Pavlovian response whenever I hear the first few notes... )
Do Ya also deserves an honorable mention, it's been stuck in my head nearly every day recently as it's the first ELO song I've been learning on guitar.
1) Down Came The Rain 2) Hello My Old Friend 3) Standin’ In The Rain
Interesting that you put it at #1, "Down came the rain" is my favourite song from the new album. Jeff can still write that sort of bitersweet pop song. Another example, but from the previous album: "Dirty to the bone".
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
