About this deal

The Electric Light Orchestra were one of the biggest and most successful bands of the late 1970s and have sold well over 5 MILLION albums in the UK alone - producing a massive string of hit singles and albums along the way. Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centres that host Etsy. Released as the second single from 1979 album Discovery - the band's first UK number one album - 'The Diary Of Horace Wimp' was a top ten chart hit itself. Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches that don't affect one's listening experiences.

When Jeff Lynne joined Roy Wood's British band the Move in 1970, it was with the condition that the group blend their basic rock moves with classical music, in a nod to Sgt. A companion album Ticket to the Moon: The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra Volume 2 featuring additional hit singles and deeper album cuts was released in 2007. And not full of electric synthesizer music that you would be expecting going by the coverJust to let you know I have Volume 2 and Out of the Blue.Fun fact: Patti Quatro (the sister of Suzi Quatro) was an uncredited contributor to the song's backing vocals. Describing the ongoing love he has, the lyrics read: " It's been a year now and it's getting so much better. With shades of Citizen Kane in the music video, Lynne mirrors Orson Welles uttering "rosebud" right at the end by saying "Horace Wimp" in a close-up. But I remember a statement they made when they first formed was to carry on from where the Beatles left off with 'Walrus' and they certainly did. Showing the struggles of leaving her behind, the lyrics read: " But I really want tonight to last forever, I really wanna be with you", and: " Time was still but hours must really have rushed by, I didn't realise, but love was in your eyes".

The fourth single from the band's double-album Out of the Blue features the LP's biggest pop explosion. Jeff Lynne supposedly borrowed the three-chord structure from the finale of Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway To Heaven' and elaborated on it, and paid tribute to The Beatles' 'Fixing A Hole' with the lyric: "There's a hole in my head where the rain comes in". This can be heard in lyrics like: " You made a fool of me", " you broke me up", and: " You destroyed all the virtues that the Lord gave you, it's so good that you're feelin' pain". The band's lineup would fluctuate throughout its original incarnation, although Lynne, Tandy and Bevan would remain constant members.

With huge worldwide sales since they formed in 1970, it's a hard task for any fan to pick just one favourite track.
