Have you ever had that moment when you hear an unknown song and you instantly remember it logged somewhere in your brain labeled as "awesome song"? Just had that moment.

Cool, the first part of the music was or has been used for many years by a Dutch tv channel as 'intermezzo' tune, being heard in between every two programs. Never knew it was from ELO.

Gewoon gestolen van de VPRO. Vieze oplichters!

I always love how visibly awkward Jeff Lynne looks in video's when his guitar is taken away from him. He doesn't look at ease. But i personally think it adds to his charm and mystery.

Here is the news
Coming to you every hour on the hour
(Here is the news)
The weather's fine but there may be a meteor shower.

Here is the news
A cure's been found for good old rocket lag
(Here is the news)
Someone left their life behind in a plastic bag.

Here is the news
Here is the news
Here is the news.

("Spaceworkers dispute in London today.
A lightning strike by air shuttle officers
led to over 2, 000 passengers being held up
for up to 10 hours to board flights...")

("Ten Eurotechnicians were today sentenced
by the justice computer to be banished for life
to the prison satellite Penal One...")

Here is the news
Another action filled adventure
(Here is the news)
All the worst from the world convention.

Here is the news (the very latest)
Here is the news
Here is the news
Here is the news

("... shares of Roboko Development are now climbing...")
("... a very great friend of mine...")
("... our regular scheduled programs...")
("... the latest report from the people down there...")
("... a tiny little detail...")
("... I'd like to say hello to everybody...")

Here is the news
I wanna go home, I want my baby back
(Here is the news)
I wanna go back!

Here is the news
Somebody has broken out of Satellite Two
(Here is the news....)
Look very carefully, it may be you, you, you, you...

("... the energy counsel today announced...")
("... the archbishop is waving to the crowds...")
("... the World Broadcasting Authority today announced...")
("... I think that's going to be alright, you'll have to wait & see...")
("... I'll call you back later...")

Here is the news


I'll finally listen to the song and read the lyrics :^D

Самый мой любимый альбом группы "ELO" 1981 года, называется "Time". Этот трек из него...

Often, it is very hard to figure out the references in this video. I did state in one reply that Jeff may have foreseen the coming of the 24 hour news networks in the year 1981. He was referring to how some newsmen were becoming famous l celebrities with a lot of influence. Jeff's new reporter character is a reflection of news celebrities like O'Reilly.

LOL! This video is awful but I still say, "Someone left their life behind in a plastic bag." remains as one of his best lyrics.

I haven't thought much about it, but are all the other members of the news crew supposed to be frozen in time before they start moving as the tempo takes off at the beginning? I feel it would make sense, considering Jeff is the only one moving at the start, which could imply maybe he was a time traveler in this video maybe? Especially considering the lines, "I want to go home, I want my baby back" which I feel could suggest he's stuck in an undesirable futuristic world, and that he wants to return to the past, and a more familiar, endearing worldly environment, which he anthropomorphises into a lover, by affectionately refering to the past as "my baby." It's just food for thought, I guess. ;*O

Jeff always seems to be dressed great. Not too formal but not casual either.
