265 – Electric Light Orchestra – Mr Blue Sky (1977)
Written by Jeff Lynne
Produced by Jeff Lynne
Label – Jet
Often derided for their over use of strings and transparent links to The Beatles, “Mr Blue Sky” is hard to resist in its uplifting tempo. Beautifully arranged by Lynne it feels like a response to The Fab Four’s “A Day In The Life” (even down to the heavy breathing and bell clanging).
