“Mr Blue Sky” – ELO

This is not a song, it’s a mini-suite. This is Electric Light Orchestra founder Jeff Lynne at his very best. It’s a tour-de-force of his creative forces. As someone else once said, and I couldn’t put it better myself, “Thank you, Jeff Lynne, for writing all those songs that the Beatles never got around to writing.” Oh, if you’re not familiar with it, but it sounds familiar, it’s been in about a bazillion movie and television soundtracks.
