The Electric Light Orchestra is a cool band name.

Anyone else heard of Electric Light Orchestra? I thought I hadn’t until I listened to one of their more popular songs, “Strange Magic.”

ELO’s “Strange Magic” and “Livin’ Thing.”

Someone in the Phoenix area is putting together an ELO tribute band, and I’m hoping to audition for the harmony singer’s part. She’s the one with the long, curly blonde hair. How cool would that be?? I’m considering curling my own hair for the audition, just to make an impression. Sometimes I’m not a huge seventies pop music fan, but I like ELO so far. They have a decent amount of percussion, and I love the strings. The melodies, vocal and instrumental, are interesting; fun to listen to, fun to sing. So the good news is that even if I don’t get the job, I discovered a historically successful, musically interesting band that is new to me. Hooray!
