Music Monday ~ 41: ELO – Livin’ Thing

If last week's "Fade to Grey" is my favourite song of all time, then "Livin' Thing" by Electric Light Orchestra is surely the song that I have loved the longest. I have very clear memories of hearing this in 1976 and I was no more than three-years-old at the time.  The benefit of being a serial expat is that it couldn’t have been much later than that as we were out of England by the next year.  I remember my uncle’s bohemian digs in London and all the colourful, magnificent clothes they all wore.  I remember jamming sessions in London parks, visiting Camden Lock and how magical London was compared to grey and staid St Helens and Liverpool.

I adore this song and it has the ability to lift me up no matter how grey my day!
