Does anyone else like ELO? I don't know why I do, but I absolutely love their sound (I think its the fusion of classical instruments with the synthesizers). I will hear a song on the radio, and not know who sang it, and a LOT of times its them.

This has happened with:

Telephone line
Evil Woman
Do Ya
Livin Thing
and today, Showdown.

I'm sure I'm leaving some out, but nonetheless I haven't heard a song I didn't like by them.

Anyone else like ELO as much as me?

Moooo

I don't know if ELO would make my top five of all time, but they're in my top ten, without a doubt. Incredible band!

Hell yes. I've loved them since I was a kid. My dad bought me the "Discovery" album for my 9th birthday. Nearly 30 yrs later I still have the darn thing too.

My distant cousin Ria did all the album artwork for ELO (and other '70's bands). I heard she also occasionally played in the bands' string section when they toured...

'Don't Bring Me Down' was one of the first songs I loved as a child. They have a really quirky sound on that song that could possibly be the theme song for a children's show like Great Space Coaster or something. I guess that's what drew me to it as a 3 year old in the back of my parent's station wagon.

Been an ELO freak since their beginning. I bought the ZOOM DVD the day it came out. Everytime I think that I have all of their albums I find another Euro version. Their concerts in the 70's were great fun and awe inspiring with the spaceship and lights.

They were similar to Supertramp in a few ways. I always thought Yes,Supertramp and ELO were the same band when I was a child.

...err, and Air Supply

I ****in looove ELO..."Sweet Talkin Woman" is one of my all-time fave tunes. I read somewhere that ELO is what would've happened if the Beatles would have stayed together through the 70's. I tend to agree, even though I think I like them better.

Actually it was Springsteen. The cover was by Manfred Mann.

Joe, Loved Zoom.

Hated that Lynne was the only member on the CD/DVD.
I even had a solo album by Kelly Grocutt.

I had all original releases up to Time. One of my favorite 70/80s bands.

Not to mention that Jeff Lynne was probably (arguably) the single greatest producer of the 90s.

I love the Jeff Lynne sound. Its very unique

That first Traveling Wilburys CD is a perfect CD and the 2nd one isnt half bad either.

ELO rocks! Give it up for the 5th Beatle!

I also purchased ELO Live At Wembly on the Out Of The Blue tour just to have a DVD with the original band but I'll still take ZOOM anyday.Lynne is nothing short of perfect on that one.
