I’m pretty bummed I’m not going to get an opportunity to see Jeff Lynne’s ELO (Electric Light Orchestra) perform in L.A. next weekend. 😦 It’s been about 30 years since Lynne performed in concert, which gives you an idea as to how infrequently he tours. The original ELO has been on my Concert Bucket List since I first heard their music on the Xanadu film soundtrack. 🙂
Happy 70th Birthday to singer, songwriter, musician and record producer Barry Gibb!
The second concert I attended as a teen was to see Richard Marx perform live near my hometown. He’s one of the few musicians I admire for his songwriting and his voice. 🙂
This song has always been one of my favorites. Hoping one day the band will reunite because they are on my concert bucket list to see perform live. 🙂
Yesterday I heard this song on the radio and it reminded me of how much I love this band! 🙂
Have a great weekend!
Enjoy and have a great weekend! 😎
I’ve always liked the song “For Pete’s Sake” by The Monkees. Peter Tork wrote this tune during the comedy series’s heyday. Micky Dolenz performs lead vocals on the recorded version, but Peter now takes the reins whenever the song is performed in concert.
The lyrics, “We were born to love one another, this is something we all need,” pretty much resonates with what’s been happening in the world today. 😦 We need to see less hate and seek more love and peace.
