Rocktober #03 "Don't Bring Me Down" Electric Light Orchestra

   Some bands become a phenomenon in a certain era and this is true of 'ELO' and their staging, videos and sheer weight of hit songs... no wonder 'they' have returned to touring in recent years as 1960s/70s kids have time and money to reminisce... This wasn't their biggest hot but my favourite tune with echoes of Quo... You have to remember that the big screens and backdrops were pretty new then and radio played ELO on what was called 'high rotation, so you could hear songs like this every 3-4 hours some days!! They sold a lot of singles.... maybe 15-20 Top 20 singles in the US!! Jeff Lynne put out another album after their array from the 1970s and 80s, in 2001!!
