Best ELO (Electric Light Orchestra) Songs
The Contenders: Page 2
Gotta be a top ten song! A genuine undiscovered piece of ELO treasure! A true roller coaster of a song which would do well if it was released today.
I'm amazed Tightrope is so low, by all definitions, musically, lyrically, and instrumentally, it's The Electric Light Orchestra at their absolute best.
This song when ELO open a set, sends shivers down my Spine. The strings in this sound amazing, I would rate this much much higher.
Not only is this the best Electric Light Orchestra song of all time, it's quite possibly the best song of all time, period.V 6 Comments
I guess a lot of people aren't into this very late era ELO, but I believe Jeff was writing quality songs from the very beginning right through to Balance of Power. To me this is the last ELO album, because Zoom was really more Jeff Lynne than ELO (good as it was), and this was the best track on it.
Laugh out loud 23 You got to be kidding me. Armatures!
That song just made me feel good and still does.
Crazy. This is there best song easily.V 4 Comments
A reminder that there was a time when rock and roll was seen as anti establishment. Classical musicians and politicians would not be seen dead at a rock concert. How times have changed.
Their best ever. Plain and simple. This song rocks.
Number 1 for me, hands down, listen to it again!
Guys this song is simply amazing! I really think it's their best song, even better then Mr. Blue sky. The lyrics are awesome as well
Totally the best ELO song! How can it be anything else? Don't be afraid! Just knock on the door! Well he just stood there mumbling and fumbling!
Discovery is an album that never fails to by enjoyed every time you play it. Fantastic move by ELO into the the music style of the time without losing their trademark sound. Brilliant.
Great song! It really illustrates that sometimes you have to take a chance in life and take a stand! Really one of the most underrated ELO songs of all time.V 1 Comment
It was the right music at the right time. Don't know why this isn't in the top 5
Why isn't this higher?
A brilliant, kick ass opener. easily top 3
By far the best
Love this takes me back to teenage years
It's a close tie between this, "Strange Magic" and "Shangri-la". The thing this has that those don't have, is a buildup as powerful and emotional as this.
I can't believe I didn't see this song in the list!V 1 Comment
Pure Rocker. Just badass.
Hypnotic. This song taps into the space-time continuum putting the listener into a trippy dream like trance.
Definitely a stand out track from their catalogue
Tears in my eyes every time I hear te song. Great song.
This song is absolutely amazing, The vocals are strong and match the likes of the great Alto singers of yesteryear. How it eluded to be on this list before now befuddles me
I don't understand why this song is so unknown. I heard it on the radio one day as a tribute to a radio reporter who passed out earlier that week. It blew my mind, never having heard this song before.
Also: Any Dutchman would recognize the intro of the song since it's used as jingle for the VPRO. - standelange
Love this song
Jeff Lynne's story songs are amongst the best ever written.
Brilliant song. Improves with age.
Love this one. One of my favorites.
Love ELO, have for years and years. Mr Blue Sky, Sweet Talking Woman particularly great. So many others, too. But for sheer power and musical transportation (not talking cars, here), you can't beat "Eldorado."
Best Song from ELO :-) Must be higher in the list!
One of the most inspirational and beautiful songs I've ever heard. I cannot believe this is so low. It deserves to be in the top 5 at least. As soon as I heard this song, it instantly became my favourite ELO song due to its amazing melodies and its unique sound. Wonderful track... Absolutely magnificent!
One of their absolute bests! Zoom is one of their best albums too, just behind Out of The Blue and A New World Record, and this is their best slow and happy song. Should definitely be in the top 5!
This is a beautiful Ballad - Beatles style. It came at a time when ELO had lost momentum (2001), but had it been released in ELOs hey-day, it would have become a massive hit. Every time someone hears it for the 1st time, they are absolutelly impressed.V 1 Comment
