There is no bad song on Discovery. A New World Record and Face the Music are also two great albums from ELO.

ELO rocks!

Songs to look up:

Mr. Blue Sky
Fire on High
Telephone Line

and like jackhammer said, any song on Discovery.
Gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused

Check out the Eldorado album, lots of great prog elements

I grew up with ELO, I bought Eldorado when it came out and was very impressed with the whole album, and then I bought A New World Record when it was released and again I really enjoyed the unique sound Jeff Lynne's band had produced. These would be my 2 choices of their best work IMO. I do have them both on CD now and their greatest hits compilation as well.

If you like ELO, check out Jeff Lynn's band from the Sixties, "The Idle Race" were something else

My father told me about ELO, now I really like them. Dont Bring Me Down and Four Little Diamonds are my favourite songs.

"Eldorado", "On The Third Day" and "Time" are imo the best

ELO's some good **** to me. My favorite song would probably be Strange Magic. It's so... magical.

Another group I like a lot, but just haven't had the opportunity to properly get into them. Evil Woman is one of my favourite ever songs.
