THE TOP 101 ESSENTIAL SONGS BY THE
ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA
The 1975 album 'Face The Music' featured this hit single which proved that ELO was a consistent chart force. This was the band's 3rd Top 20 US hit and the 6th British Top 40 entry.
MR. TAMBOURINE MAN
Dylan included the original version of "Mr. Tambourine Man" on his 'Bringing It All Back Home' album barely weeks prior to the release of the better known remake by The Byrds. The band's interpretation reached #1 on both sides of the Atlantic. This was the 1st #1 song penned by Dylan.
This track represented a shift in direction for Orbison and it failed to chart high with the exception of Canada and Australia where the single made the Top 10. It was lifted off his 'Cry Softly Lonely One' album.
EVERY LITTLE THING
Jeff Lynne's 1st solo album 'Armchair Theatre' was issued in 1990 and included this single which reached #24 in Australia but fared poorly in Britain and America.
This single charted well in Europe, Britain and Australia in 1966 and was contained on Orbison's 1962 album 'Crying'.
To commemorate the 15th anniversary of George Harrison’s passing and in celebration of Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize for Literature, it’s an opportune time to reflect on the 101 songs that matter most from the members of The Traveling Wilburys. As well as Harrison and Dylan, the group consisted of Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne. The latter is mostly represented on the Top 101 as a member of the Electric Light Orchestra. Also included are songs that Harrison penned for The Beatles to record.
Each update will be added to the Traveling Wilburys playlist on Spotify.
