Electric Light Orchestra Lyrics


The Electric Light Orchestra's ambitious yet irresistible
fusion of Beatlesque pop, classical arrangements, and
futuristic iconography rocketed the group to massive
commercial success throughout the 1970s. ELO was formed in
Birmingham, England in the autumn of 1970 from the ashes of
the eccentric art-pop combo the Move, reuniting frontman
Roy Wood with guitarist/composer Jeff Lynne, bassist Rick
Price, and drummer Bev Bevan; announcing their intentions
to "pick up where 'I Am the Walrus' left off," the quartet
sought to embellish More...

Review about Electric Light Orchestra songs
    ------ About the song Kuiama performed by Electric Light Orchestra

A Masterpiece in every sense of the word. Jeff here proves what poetry can do, It's horrible, chilling, beautiful, hopeful and unforgettable. Very few songs have touched me the way this song has. The painful regrets many of our soldiers must be dealing with many of us can never understand and it's for this this song really hit's my emotions. It was there duty, it was war, it was ugly but it needs to come out into the light. Jeff I feel hit the mark in one of the finest examples of the power in words and song.

    ------ About the song Wild West Hero performed by Electric Light Orchestra

This song makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Many men of my generation will identify with what Lynne's saying here.
We were brought up on cowboy movies with actors like John Wayne as our hero's we all wanted to be cowboys.
He captures it incredibly with that fantastic rhythmic piano section you're almost riding along on your trusty steed, it's incredible.
The whole song the vocals and orchestration is simply a masterpiece, it just doesn't get any better.

    ------ About the song Telephone Line performed by Electric Light Orchestra

I have been a fan of ELO since they started. Saw them in Toronto, Canada while on tour promoting their latest album out of the blue. Their opeining act was Meatloaf which had just released his bat out of hell album as well. we had tickets for the nose bleed zone but by the time ELO came on, security didn't care and wound up on the first row (standing) right by the stage. I will never forget it.

    ------ About the song Love Is Like Oxygen performed by Electric Light Orchestra

I do remember this song and no ELO never did a version of it. Sweet was a decent band but had very few songs that went airtime the famed Ballroom blitz, Love is like oxygen and Fox on the run are the only ones I can recall

    ------ About the song Kuiama performed by Electric Light Orchestra

The song is about a soldier who killed Kuiamas parents.He is explaning what happened during the war to her and her parents.It is a very cool song because Its not an anti war song or pro war song.It is what it is,he got drafted and went to war for his country.Unfortunatley during a battle he killed her parents,and he Is telling her about it.Great writing In this song.

ELO? | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Love Is Like Oxygen performed by Electric Light Orchestra

If ELO did a version of this I'd certainly like to hear it. For years people have compared this song to ELO perhaps due to the keyboard textures and such. It was one of the more melodic Sweet singles to get airplay and a great new direction for the band at the time.

ultimate party anthem | Reviewer: Peter Brown
    ------ About the song Wild West Hero performed by Electric Light Orchestra

For years now we have included this as a family party anthem, all linked in a big circle, , singing the a capella bits quietly, then belting out the chorus's, someone doing bad air guitar in the middle sequences, trying to keep track of the number of repeats in the last chorus etc etc. Seems to encapsulate all kinds of emotions and creates a great feeling of togetherness. Maybe we're just a bunch of cowboys...anyway, go on , try it out, spread the love !!

Truly Beautiful | Reviewer: Jack
    ------ About the song Telephone Line performed by Electric Light Orchestra

This song is a stream of emotion, it is musically and lyrically very very beatiful, and the vocal arrangements are a delight. Jeff Lynne is, among other things, one of the best male singers ever. I think it's a perfect example of a Beatles and Roy Orbison fusion, and God that diminished chord! The acoustic version on 'Live From Bungalow Palace' it's amazing, if you haven't heard it yet, check it out. It's really sad to realize that songs like this are not on the airwaves anymore, these are dark times.

Peace

    ------ About the song One More Tomorrow performed by Electric Light Orchestra

All you show are not the song I remember from forties and fifties. It goes something like this: "One more tomorrow, to kiss your lips constantly" or maybe "to hold your hand constantly"
