#20 – Electric Light Orchestra – “Don’t Bring Me Down” – (1979)

Jeff. Mother$%&*#!$. Lynne. He’s one of the best songwriters of all time and front man of ELO. Yet he isn’t a household name like other huge artists. He was in the Traveling Wilburys. This song was ELO’s biggest hit, charting at #4 on the Hot 100 and in the top ten in countries all over the world. Lynne’s singing style is on display here, hitting some high notes – something not many rockers can do.
