I think we all have a song on most albums that we think are okay but would quite happily do a swap with one we prefer. One song of ELOs there is a lot of love for is “All my love” on FOON. I really don’t get this song and always skip the track when playing the album. But it seems to be popular with many ELO fans. So who am I to argue. It’s great we have a choice now with all the remastered CDs and double album release of SM.
Edit: My gif of Dorothy in The Wizard Of Oz being shocked did not come through.

I've struggled with this one. From the day of its release I've always thought that BoP suffered from having too many relatively uninspiring tracks in the middle (if you consider it as a CD) so I'm slightly twisting the rules a bit by adding in the JL-produced Tandy/Morgan single, Action!. It's of the same era and certainly has a similar production feel to something like So Serious. That gives me a track listing of:
Heaven Only Knows (standard version) Getting To The Point Caught In A Trap Is It Alright Calling America
Action! Endless Lies (BoP version) So Serious Sorrow About To Fall (alternative version) Destination Unknown
Bonus track on the cassette edition!: Without Someone

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?
