    LOVE, love, love ELO. If I had the choice to see only one band live, it'd be them. Wild West Hero is a beautiful song, but then, I couldn't choose a favorite. There are just too many good ELO songs, and at the same time: never enough. <3

    Just the right blend of corny, dreamy lyrics and perfect pop mixed with a bluesy honky tonk guitar and piano sound. This is the stuff of heroic daydreams and childhood longings, and for me takes me back to radiogram Indian Summer days and overheating 7inch vinyl playing on repeat with the arm over the top of the spindle. Ah. 1978.

    I'm with tinajaxie--i've loved this band most of my life,i've never disliked anything they've done.Biased??Maybe,but it's my bias,and i'm so,so comfortable with it!!!! The greatest band ever--totally without comparison.

    I LOVE ELO! And this song is one of my favorites, though basically 100 of the ELO songs are my favorite songs, but ah well, can't do much 'bout it. :-)
