THE TOP 101 ESSENTIAL SONGS BY THE
ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA
This- the leading single off E.L.O."s 'A New World Record'- proved very popular around the planet. It reached #13 in America and made the Top 10 in Britain, Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Long before Band Aid and USA For Africa, Harrison assembled some musical heavyweights for a charity event known as The Concert For Bangladesh. This is widely regarded as the 1st key charity recording from the rock fraternity. The single only climbed to #23 in the U.S. but peaked at #10 in the U.K. and charted in Europe, Canada and Australia.
GOTTA SERVE SOMEBODY
This Grammy Award-winning Dylan composition was featured on the influential singer/ songwriter's 'Slow Train Coming' album. On the American chart, the track reached #24. The song best represents Dylan's Christian phase.
Harrison's gentle rocker was included on The Beatles' 'Revolver' LP and was scathing about taxes collected by the British government. As composer of the song, Harrison sings lead vocals.
JUST LIKE A WOMAN
This ballad reveals another side of Dylan's songwriting. It was a single lifted off his 'Blonde On Blonde' album. On the U.S. chart, the disc peaked at #33. In Britain, a remake by the group Manfred Mann reached #10 in 1966.
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.
