Song Sunday: Electric Light Orchestra

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.  🙂

Song Sunday: The Monkees

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.
