Can't Get It Out of My Head is one of my favorite ELO tracks too. It was also one of their biggest hits in the US at least.


Yeah, they did rip off Eleanor Rigby on the other track, didn't they. Still, I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I can understand imitation, but that was almost duplication. Terrible.

In all fairness, Eleanor Rigby was an imitation of some music from Psycho.

Keep going with your top/bottom ten. In the words of Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel, don't give up.

Just listened to Secret Messages for the first time. Rock 'N' Roll is King was my favorite track.

I also listened to On The Third Day (only song on it I'd heard before was Showdown) and OMG WHY DIDN'T ANYONE TELL ME THAT MA-MA-MA BELLE WAS SUCH A FUCKING BANGER? Instant top ten track.
