    Season 390. Submission 1. "Can't Get It Out Of My Head" (written by Jeff Lynne and recorded by ELO, 1974)


    Thanks so very much for hosting this week, Tom! I hope that your first hosting experience is terrific and I so appreciate your stepping in for me.

    This is a special submission for me; it marks the 200th Season since I first joined and the 200th Season in a row that I've submitted. Honestly, I can't believe it. And as everyone says, the first submission was the hardest.

    I do not know Jeff Lynne and ELO's music as much as I'd like, so I'm anxious to hear what everybody brings this week. This song is brand new for me.

    Congratulations on the milestone!

    Yes, I am having a great time so far. A lovely cover Linda! It did not come across as new to you at all! ��

    ELO songs are generally beyond my ability to fake, but I found one that kind of worked, after I fixed all the mistakes in the chord sheet.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    The ELO album ‘Discovery’ was released in 1979, the year I turned 13. It wasn’t considered at all ‘cool’ at that age to like the music that your Dad was into but that didn’t stop me listening to it over and over again - I just didn’t tell anyone at school!

    So many good songs on that album, and this was and is one of my favourites. I don’t think it was ever released as a single, but maybe it should have been?

    Here’s a real insight into the man behind this week’s music. His talent and his humility shine through in this interview:

    Hello, Tom! I love The Traveling Wilburys ... this track is from their Vol.1 album. On the album, Bob Dylan took the lead vocals for this one ... needless to say, I sound absolutely NOTHING like Dylan!

    Jeff Lynne also co-wrote and produced Tom Petty's "Full Moon Fever" record, and they came up with some great songs. (It's also where i pulled last season's entry ...)

    This is one, IMHO, even if the performance ain't up to their standards. Johnny Cash also did a moving version in his final years.

    This is one which I loved when it came out (1977), and still do. Maybe it was the unusual structure which made it stand out, and it took some trial and error to uke-ify it. But here goes...
