ELO – Rockaria: Song of the Day

ELO - RockariaIn my sweat-soaked, grease covered, white outfit, I toiled over a huge basin of filthy dishes. It was closing time at Lite Bite and my buddy Tim and I were cleaning up after a booming dinner, apparently served to sloppy diners by messy cooks. As was our custom, we started discussing our favorite bands and arguing over their best songs while we toiled away. On this night, ELO was in the spotlight. In honor of their recent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, I figured I’d highlight them with this week’s Throwback Thursday Song of the Day.

“Elderly Woman…” TBT- Song of the Day with Pearl Jam

As you may know, Pearl Jam is being inducted into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame. This seems a bit weird as the band is one of those musical acts that have never really went away. What I mean to say is that they are  the rare entity that has remained relevant for the better part of 25 years. They perfectly melded the pure rock of Van Halen with the punky spike of The Ramones, with the earthiness of Neil Young. They came at a time when there was no apex, so they invented one, and did it well. The band has toured relentlessly, released numerous above-average records, and survived the music business with little to no marketing, which is no small feat.
