LETRAS

ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER

"There must be some kinda way out of here"
Said a joker to the thief
"There's too much confusion,
I can't get no relief.
Businessmen they, they drink my wine,
Ploughmen dig my earth
None will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth"

"No reason to get excited"
The thief he kindly spoke.
"There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke.
But you and I we've been through that
And this is not our fate.
So let us not talk falsely now,
The hour's getting late"

All along the watchtower, 
Princess kept the view
While all the women came and went,
Barefoot servants too.
Outside in the cold distance
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl

BURNING OF THE MIDNIGHT LAMP

The morning is dead
and the day is too
there's nothing left here to greet me
but the velevet moon
all my loneliness
i have felt today
it's a little more than enough
to make a man throw himself away
i continue
to burn the midnight lamp 
alone
Now the smiling portrait of you
is stll hangin' on my frowning wall
but it really doesn't really doesn't bother me too much at all
it's just the, uh, ever falling dust 
that makes it so hard for me to see
that forgotten ear-ring laying on the floor
facing coldly toward the door
and i continue
to burn the midnight lamp
whoa, alone
Burn
yeah yeah
lonely lonely lonely
loneliness is such a, drag
So here i sit to face 
that same old fire place 
gettin' ready for the sam old explosion
goin' through my mind 
and soon enough time will tell
about the circus and the wishingwell
and someone who will by and sell for me
someone who will toll my bell 
and i continue to burn the same old lamp 
alone
Yeah, right now 
can you hear me callin' you so lonely 
gotta blow my mind 
yeah yeah
lonely lonely lonely
blow my mind
yeah

CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC

You jump in front of my car when you,
you know all the time that
Ninety miles an hour, girl, is the speed I drive
You tell me it's alright, you don't mind a little pain
You say you just want me to take you for a drive

You're just like crosstown traffic
So hard to get through to you
Crosstown traffic
I don't need to run over you
Crosstown traffic
All you do is slow me down
And I'm tryin' to get on the other side of town

I'm not the only soul who's accused of hit and run
Tire tracks all across your back
I can see you had your fun
But darlin' can't you see my signals turn from green to red
And with you I can see a traffic jam straight up ahead

You're just like crosstown traffic
So hard to get through to you
Crosstown traffic
I don't need to run over you
Crosstown traffic
All you do is slow me down
And I got better things on the other side of town 

RAINY DAY, DREAM AWAY

Cough, cough, sniff, sniff
hey man, take a look out the window 
and see what's happening
hey man, its rainin' its rainin' outside man
oh don't worry about that, brother
everything's gonna be everything
we'll get into something real nice, you know
why don't ya sit back and groove on a rainy day
Snif, yeah
sniff
yeah i see what you mean brother
maybe i can groove
Rainy day dream away
let the sun take a holiday
flowers bathe and uh
see the children play 
lay back and groove on a rainy day
well i can see a bunch of wet preachers, look at 'em on the run
the carnival trafic noise, it sinks
into the splashy hum
even the ducks can groove 
rain burdend in a park-side pool
and i'm leanin out my window sill
diggin' everything
and uh you too
Rainy day rain all day
ain't no use in gettin' up tonight
just let it groove its own way 
let it drain
your wories away
lay back and groove on a rainy day
lay back and dream on a rainy day

VOODOO CHILD (SLIGHT RETURN)

Well, i stand up next to a mountain 
and i chop it down with the edge of my hand 
yeah
well, i stand up next to a mountain 
and i chop it down with the edge of my hand 
well, i pick up all the pieces and make an island
might even raise a little sand

I want to say one more last thing
I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time

I don't take no for an answer
Question no

LETRAS


"MOTHER"


Mother, you had me, but I never had you
I wanted you, you didn't want me
So I, I just got to tell you
Goodbye, goodbye
Father, you left me, but I never left you
I needed you, you didn't need me
So I, I just got to tell you
Goodbye, goodbye
Children, don't do what I have done
I couldn't walk and I tried to run
So I, I just got to tell you
Goodbye, goodbye
Mama don't go
Daddy come home
"LOVE"
Love is real,
real is love
love is feeling,
feeling love
love is wanting
to be loved.
Love is touch,
touch is love
love is reaching,
reaching love
love is asking
to be loved.
Love is you
you and me
love is knowing
we can be
Love is free,
free is love
love is living,
living love
love is needing
to be loved.

"WORKING CLASS HERO"

As soon as you're born they make you feel small
by giving you no time instead of it all
till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
a working class hero is something to be
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
they hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
a working class hero is something to be
When they've tortured and scared you for twenty-odd years
then they expect you to pick a career
when you can't really function you're so full of fear
a working class hero is something to be
Keep you doped with religion and sex and tv
and you think you're so clever and classless and free
but you're still fucking peasants as far as i can see
a working class hero is something to be

there's room at the top they're telling you still
but first you must learn how to smile as you kill
if you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
if you want to be a hero well just follow me

"GOD"

God is a concept
by which we measure
our pain
i'll say it again
god is a concept
by which we measure
our pain
I don't believe in magic
i don't believe in i-ching
i don't believe in bible
i don't believe in tarot
i don't believe in hitler
i don't believe in jesus
i don't believe in kennedy
i don't believe in buddha
i don't believe in mantra
i don't believe in gita
i don't believe in yoga
i don't believe in kings
i don't believe in elvis
i don't believe in zimmerman
i don't believe in beatles
i just believe in me
yoko and me
and that's reality
The dream is over
what can i say?
the dream is over
yesterday
i was the dreamweaver
but now i'm reborn
i was the walrus
but now i'm john
and so dear friends
you just have to carry on
the dream is over

ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA - CLIPS 71 - 86


Grupo de Rock Sinfónico que en 1970  a través de Roy Wood se propone lograr un nuevo sonido agregando cellos, violines y secciones de vientos y de cuerdas dándole un toque clásico a un sonido que combine con los instrumentos eléctricos. Jeff Lynne se une a la idea y comienza la historia de un grupo en el cual los constantes cambios de formaciones fueron su marca registrada como así también, su viraje a un sonido más pop y comercial a partir de la segunda mitad de los 70'. Roy Wood abandonó  el grupo en medio de la grabación del segundo LP quedando Lynne al mando. Luego fueron cambiando los cellistas y violinistas en forma casi contínua. Discovery en 1979 fue su mayor éxito alcanzando el disco de platino en los Estados Unidos pero decepcionado a sus antiguos fans por su sonido de música disco. . Fue la última aparición de la formación clásica de la ELO.  Jeff Lynne compuso la música de la película Xanadú con Olivia Newton John confirmando su viraje hacía la música disco y el pop más comercial. Entre los años 1981 - 1986 grabarían nuevos discos sin mayor suceso separándose luego de la presentación de "Balance Of Power".  Con posterioridad, Jeff Lynne trabó una fuerte amistad con George Harrison y le produjo el disco "Cloud Nine" y formó junto al mencionado Ex Beatle, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty y Bob Dylan, los "Travelling Wilburys con los que grabó tres discos. 
Por su parte Bev Beban, dueño de una parte de los derechos del nombre de la banda,  formo la ELO Part Two inicialmente con Louis Clark a los que se unieron en la gira de promoción del primer disco los antiguos miembros:  Mik Kaminski, Kelly Groucutt y Hugh McDowell. De esa etapa quedaron los discos Electric Light Orchestra Part Two y Moment Of Truth. Luego, Bev Beban vendió su parte del nombre del grupo a Jeff Lynne y se retiró, los restantes integrantes continuaron con el nombre de "The Orchestra". 
Finalmente en la etapa 2000 - 2001, Lynne editó "Flashback" con temas viejos remasterizados, outakes y algunos inéditos. Posteriormente lanzó "Zoom y lo presentó en TV, se grabó en DVD e intentó una gira pero fue cancelada. Entre 2001 y 2007 el mencionado líder de este grupo supervisó la reedición de todo el catálogo de la ELO.
