Best ELO (Electric Light Orchestra) Songs

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Sweet Is the Night

This is an awesome track!

42 Shangri-La

Fabulous song

How is this so low? Shangri-La is one of the high points of the album. It brings everything together beautifully with the reuse of the orchestrated parts of Telephone Line, as well as Opera lady from Rockaria! Perhaps the strongest album-closer in ELO's entire disgocraphy

43 Eldorado

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."

44 Long Black Road

Best Song from ELO :-) Must be higher in the list!

45 Moment In Paradise

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.

46 The Way Life's Meant to Be

Awesome song, definitely in they're top ten

Jeff Lynne's best piece of production.

47 Jungle

A brilliant melodic sound. The verse, chorus, intro has everything you want it to have. Should be in top ten! Its a piece of art... , it truly is.

48 Kuiama
49 Boy Blue

This song is on a whole different level from all others. Nothing else they made compares to this. It probably doesn't even belong in the same genre as the rest of these. It is just amazing

The arrangement and words of this song are beyond belief. The greatest example of what the world knows as "the elo sound".

50 Don't Walk Away

Great song off the Xanadu album. Possibly their best

51 Lonesome Lullaby
52 Latitude 88 North
53 21st Century Man
54 So Fine

Upbeat great song never tire of this song still sounds great typical seventies sound doesn't get played enough

55 Stranger

Haunting

56 When I Was a Boy

Jeff Lynne = ELO = Jeff Lynne. I heard somebody complaining how this song sounds like Lennon/Beatles. When the hell did that ever become a bad thing? Another gem that I can't get out of my head. Keep 'em coming!

Simple and spectacular. ELO is back and the new stuff could be better than before.

57 Nightrider

Severely underrated. At least top 20 material. I can't believe I had to add it to the list myself. - N7Khajiit

Love to crank it up when I here this song.

A travesty that this single didn’t chart anywhere. The best song on the Face The Music album. Just as an aside for the people that wonder why some of their favourites aren’t higher in the charts...if it wasn’t a single or a hit the odds are that many don’t even know it.

58 Rain is Falling

The whole Time album with bonus tracks Julie Don't Live Here, Bouncer and When Time Stood Still. - frankmartin

59 Take Me on and On - Electric Light Orchestra
60 Mister Kingdom

So underrated!
