LOVE IT !!! Nothing makes me happier than seeing an ELO performance I've never seen before - I don't care what incarnation of ELO it is... 70's ELO, 80's ELO, cheesy lip synched ELO... as long as it's got Jeff it's ELO to me !!!

Jeff and the band still sound as excellent today as they did 40 years ago, even with all the personnel changes over the years. So glad they finally got into the Hall of Fame (2017), and will hopefully continue playing for many more years to come!

I absolutely loved the '80s, but the one thing I could never get past was how every single "live" music performance on TV was lip-synced.

The best way to describe ELO is electric amazing music

It's looks more like a cross between Electric Light Orchestra and Electric Light Orchestra Part 2 without Kelly Groucutt.

This is completely bizarre...like the prelude to a Twilight Zone episode..."This is Jeff Lynne...one time lead singer with a British based rock band...but when he and his wife bought that retro looking American refrigerator...what he didn't expect was being transported back in time to a 1950s All American pop Show...Jeff has just entered the Twilight Zone..."

Lyrics

Somebody told her that there was a place like heaven
Across the water on a 747
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world
And pretty soon she's really got the notion
Of flying out across the big blue ocean
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world
Talk is cheap on satellite
But all I get is static information
I'm still here re-dial on automatic
Calling America (can't get a message through)
Calling America (that's what she said to do)
Calling America (that's where she has to be)
Calling America (she left a number for me)
Calling America
But I'm just talking to a satellite
Twenty thousand miles up in the sky each night
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world
All I had to do was pick up the phone
I'm out in space, trying to talk to someone
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world (in a modern world)
She left a number I could call
But no one's there, no one at all
There must be something going wrong
That number just rings on and on
Calling America (can't get a message through)
Calling America (that's what she said to do)
Calling America (that's where she has to be)
Calling America (she left a number for me)
Calling America
Said she'd call when she'd been gone a while
Guess she's missing me across the miles
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world
Calling America (can't get a message through)
Calling America (that's what she said to do)
Calling America (that's where she has to be)
Calling America (she left a number for me)
Calling America
Calling America
Calling America
Calling America
Calling America
Calling America

Let's talk about your shower gel, then, Jeff! :D

Still very nice track from 1986 Calling America album. It was the end for Jeff Lynne as a performing artist after this album for almost 15 years. He said in interviews he was more interested in production work for others (Roy Orbison, George Harrison, Tom Petty, ...) Shame really but understandable of course..

I'm proud to say I own 6 variations of Calling America on 3 formats, cassette, cd, and vinyl. I have the '86 album cassette, the vinyl album (Canadian release with "Is It Alright" misprint), 12" single, 2007 CD issue, 2011 CD singles compilation, and a double vinyl album of singles collection from the Netherlands.
I'm also hoping I can find a recordable 8track and put Calling America on it, just so I can say I have Calling America on 8track!!
