I dig ELO, but they're kind of hit or miss.

They have some brilliant songs, but they put out a lot of shit too.

I looked for (what turned out to be) "Fire and Water" for about 3 months. I kept hearing it and didn't know what the song was--it drove me crazy. Finally someone suggested ELO and sure enough, that was it.

But still, very hit and miss.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

"Evil Woman" gets old really fast, but "Living Thing" (maybe because of its Boogie Nights connection) I will always love.

On the Third Day....still classic.  Jeff Lynne did a lot of interesting stuff early on...although his work w/ the Traveling Wilburys was also fairly good.

Hell yeah I love ELO. They are definitely geniuses of music. "Mr Blue Sky" and "Helpless" are 2 of the best songs ever, 2 of their many classics really. Fucking "Livin' Thing" is great too. I love them. Really though, listen to "Helpless" if you haven't already. I think it's one of their less popular songs, the chorus is so fucking cool.  "Telephone Line" is awesome too. They have so many sweet songs..."Don't Walk Away", "Tightrope", "Need Her Love", "The Diary of Horace Wimp", "Midnight Blue", "Showdown". Listen to any of those songs and tell me ELO doesn't rock, just try it.
