In 1979, the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) released their album Discovery. On this album, the last track was Don’t Bring Me Down. The song was written in a short time, since Jeff Lynne (the singer) thought there were not enough loud songs on the album. It made it to number 3 in the UK and number 4 in the US, what meant it was the greatest hit they had so far in the US. The song includes a slamming door at the end and an often misheard word: Grüß, which is often mistakenly heard as Bruce. Enjoy

Song of the day: Olivia Newton-John & the Electric Light Orchestra- Xanadu

Hi there,

Another soundtrack today! Earlier on, we had Grease as soundtrack.
The woman who played the main character in this song sings the soundtrack of today, together with a band.

Yes, it’s Olivia Newton-John together with the Electric Light Orchestra singing Xanadu from the movie with the same name.

Tomorrow more soundtracks!

Song of the day: Electric Light Orchestra- Mr. Blue Sky

Hello again,

A new song of the day is waiting for you!

It’s a happy song, made by an orchestra. It was written on a mountain, it was foggy for the whole week, and all of a sudden the sun comes through!
The song was remastered in 2012, but I still like the old version better.

It’s ELO (electric light orchestra) with Mr. Blue Sky.

Get happy!
