Electric Light Orchestra – Mr Blue Sky (1977)

YouTubeAmazoniTunes – Discogs

‘Mr. Blue Sky’ is from ELO’s seventh long player Out of the Blue. The album’s colourful artwork, the trite happy lyrics, the Hooked-on-Classics arrangements – for so many reasons, this song reminds me of my childhood. Nothing to do with my parents unfortunately, but as with 10CC and Supertramp, this type of fare was the staple diet of the 1970s’ London-bound au pair; fond memories indeed.

    It’s overplayed, was done on the back of a fag packet, took about 1 minute to write but is brilliant. Guilty pleasure like an Abba song or a pint of lager shandy
