Day 170

Electric Light Orchestra- A New World Record

It took me a long time to get into ELO. When I was younger, anytime they came on MTV or the radio, I would change the channel immediately without even giving them a chance. I don't know why that is. I just knew I couldn't stand the sight of Jeff Lynne. That hatred continued on when he was in the Traveling Wilburys too.

It wasn't until about about 10 years ago that I started to really dig them. The main reason for the change of heart was the song "Do Ya" which is on this album. If you ask me know, I'll tell you that I think that's one of the best rock n' roll songs ever, hence why I own this record now.

The whole album is pretty great. I think it's really cool to get into a band way after the fact. It opens up so many others doors to music and expands your variety. Well it does for me anyway. I think it'd be great if Jeff Lynne gave them one more go round. I'd love to see them live.
