Guys. I'm falling hard for Dent May... If he had a curly fro, and some aviator shades he might just be able to steal my heart away from Jeff.
This one is soooooooooo ELO.... I've heard bands that sound like ELO but it's like he's channeling Jeff's spirit!
The lyrics are very Jeff too. Sweet and just what I need these days.
What can I say? I'm running out of words that make sense to you lately I'm choking on cliches My mind is in a galaxy very far away But I'm here and I'm ready to lose it all today
Run and never look back Don't let them slow you down Never, never, never let them (Don't let them) As a matter of fact Don't let them tell that you're nothing Never, never, never let them Never, never, never let them You are everything to me
What can I do When Earth's impending doom's got me out of my head And I haven't slept for days? My mind is in a galaxy very far away But I'm here and I'm ready to lose it all today
Run and never look back Don't let them slow you down Never, never, never let them (Don't let them) As a matter of fact Don't let them tell that you're nothing Never, never, never let them Never, never, never let them You are everything to me You are everything to me
Here's the penultimate track from Graham Gouldman's latest solo album: Modesty Forbids. As a long-term 10cc fan, I think the album is pretty good and certainly worth a listen. Of this particular song, the Record Collector review says: "This album does for 10cc what Jeff Lynne has done recently for ELO's legacy. In fact, Waited All My Life For You is like ELOcc; and that's quite a thing".
I was listening to a podcast interview with Michelle Phillips from the 60's group The Mama's and Papa's, and they played the song Creeque Alley, which I've probably heard before but forgotten about. Anyway, as I'm listening to the song, I start to get the feeling that it sounds like another song, but couldn't quite place it. After listening for about the fifth time, I realized the song it reminds me of is Four Little Diamonds! Listen yourself, and tell me it's not just me.....
Timeblue: What? So they both think that studying and learning are more important than posting on an ELO forum? Good lord, what's the word coming to.......

Grroosss: Hello, my old friend(s)! ::c0112:: Indeed, I've been trying to take a break from the internet in general, to focus on """"more important"""" things like school/work as well as just to spend some more time 'unplugged'.

Grroosss: But I've missed you all, and I'll be around from time to time. I think even nobodyschild might drop in for a visit soon...
