I Believe in ELO

  I'm going to come right out and say it- I've been taking a lot of drugs lately. I've been doing so well in school (high honors, go me!), I got a boyfriend, and my life is just.. great. It sounds awful, but everything is great thanks to drugs. I am NOT in the mood to be yelled at by people who say drugs are bad and all that, I know it's bad, but.. God, I have been on cloud nine lately. THAT BEING SAID, can we just discuss how much I love Electric Light Orchestra? ELO are this electronic rock borderline "pop" band that sounds like how I think space looks. They are fucking INCREDIBLE. Anyone who disagrees has not heard the magic of ELO. 
  I go through these little phases with bands I love where I take one of their songs, realize how great it is, listen to it 24/7, then get sick of it and repeat the cycle. Right now it's "Turn to Stone," and it is brilliant. Normally I'm not one to like commercial-sounding, upbeat pop songs, but "Turn to Stone" is so much more than that. Just listen to it and tell me the chorus doesn't make you want to jump up and sing at the top of your lungs. 
  Sing my school blocked 8tracks, here's a few links to some of my favorite ELO songs:
  1. Mr. Blue Sky
  2. Telephone Lines (This is in that Steve Buscemi scene of Billy Madison and it's what I think of whenever I hear it, ahha.)
  3. Strange Magic
  4. Turn to Stone
  5. Don't Bring Me Down
  6. And here's their Greatest Hits album in case you have a bunch of time to kill

 I've also been obsessing about space. For some reason whenever I'm high I just love talking about space and the solar system. Okay, enjoy and have a super duper day!
