    Definitely ELO. The song might be Mr. Blue Sky, I'm sure its from the same album if not.

    Thanks for reminding me, haven't listened to that in ages! 😡

    That song is good, and I had to find it online to remember the words... so I did not post for days.

    Now you crank out a lyric and let us figure it out. Give a small clue.

    ok, how about

    "All we like sheep..."

    Anyone have a handle on that? I'm looking for the name of the guy who wrote it, and what it's from. If it's any help, it was first sung in Dublin.

    Here's one of my favourites

    "You might find the night time the right time for kissing"

    (that's not the first line though - I'll post that later if this is too hard)
