It only took 26 years for her to release on vinyl the 25th anniversary edition of Pieces of You (and it showed up today). It’s probably been that long since I listened to it in full...what a mistake that’s been. I’m surprisingly moved.

I didn't realize how hard it was to pick a favourite ELO song, there are so many great ones to choose from. I love 'Midnight Blue' but chose this one to start with -


Do you have a favourite ELO song?

10CC. One of the best bands ever to produce music and their lyrics are unbelievable.
Here is their longest track (11.5 mins), brought together from two unfinished songs which they merged and made this amazing track.
This is my absolute favourite 10CC track of all time. Give your ears a treat, sit back and enjoy, you will definitely 'Feel The Benefit'.


And, yes, the track really does finish exactly like that, strange as it seems.

Nice reminder of a great band, though sadly I can't listen to it - being almost totally deaf.
I had all their albums and agree that their lyrics were amazing.
I saw them live at Liverpool's Empire theatre when they were touring their new "Original Soundtrack" album - superb.

Weirdly, one of my favourite tracks was "Old Wild Men" from Sheet Music.
Although it's referring to musicians, I reckon it's pertinent to us photographers. :rolleyes:

I feel for you my friend, I have hearing aids but I can still appreciate music using good quality earphones/plugs when listening on the PC or my MP3 player or my aids when watching TV, especially when I put concert DVD's on.
I have a couple of 10CC concert DVD's which are excellent and all of their early albums. Must admit that Sheet Music is one which I haven't given much of a chance so I'll give it another go and listen out for Old Wild Men.

Cheers Keith,
I've tried everything to try and continue enjoying music but nothing works.
My hearing aids cost three and a half grand and are brilliant with speech, but even with the specially-programmed music setting I cannot identify vocalists or instruments and half the time I don't even know what piece of music I'm listening to.
That's why all my lovely hi-fi gear got sold, including my precious vinyl collected over 45 years. :(
Recently, out of desperation, I tried experimenting with some CD's I'd kept, putting them through some good gear I have left.
The only thing I enjoyed was some great folk music from John Kirkpatrick. His accordion playing and clear voice managed to tickle the old brain cells into some semblance of recognition and pleasure.
So, as I often say to other people, look after your lug'oles folks.

My wife has a Cochlear Implant and she gave up on listening to music after she got the implant, it just became noise to her. And she almost had a music degree before she lost too much hearing to continue.

Do you have a favourite ELO song?

Like you said, too many to choose from... saw them live in 2018 for the first time, blew me away. Would have seen them again last year, “but COVID”.

These jostle for top spot for me depending on mood:

Need her love from Discovery; Can’t get it out of my head from Eldorado; Birmingham Blues from Out of the blue; Here is the news from Time, which I think is an underrated little gem Of an album.

But if I had to pick one, I’d have to go for the one everyone says, Mr. Blue Sky. Cliched, maybe, but I can’t hear it without smiling! My favourite track. Ever. Along with millions of others, certainly in the UK.

well, you asked!

And just because you can, search “first time listening to Mr. Blue Sky” on google or YouTube, if the results don’t warm your heart then you don’t have one!

ELO - music from the past that sounds like it’s from the future. :)

Couldn't agree more, Steve.

Again, agree that 'Time' is an amazing album. Such a shame that Jeff Lynne hasn't quite been able to capture those sounds and thoughts in his latest 'Jeff Lynne's ELO' albums.

Thanks for your thoughts and choices.
