I've always liked this song. While it might not be the classic Electric Light Orchestra sound or lineup (it was only Jeff, Bev, and Richard), it's still a great 80s pop song. It went as high as #18 on the Billboard chart before Jeff Lynne decided to stop using the ELO name. That was a sad day for a certain seven year old in Waxahachie, Texas. ELO was the first band I really got into. Even as a child, I knew there was something different about them that I liked. I wouldn't have that same feeling again until the first time I heard Smashing Pumpkins.
