Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) was born from the joint desires of songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Jeff Lynne (1947- ) and Roy Wood (1946- ) to create modern pop rock songs with classical overtones. During the 1970s and 80s, this English band released a string of top 10 albums and singles, including their most commercially successful album,Out of the Blue (1977). Their on-again, off-again career includes the hits “Mr. Blue Sky,” “Evil Woman,” “Do Ya,” and “Don’t Bring Me Down.”
