The second track from The Electric Light Orchestra's 1976 album A New World Record. This has to be one of my all time favourite Jeff Lynne compositions. The lush strings, the lovely little keyboard riff at the beginning, the heartfelt lyrics and the unmistakable C-AM-F-G chorus adorning a thousand other ballads but none as effective as here. Programmed once again on my trusty DOS-PC knacker using Voyetra software. Main piano Roland RD-300s (all live, not sequenced), Korg M1 and (all out of shot) Korg O5R/W, DW8000 and Boss DR660 for the Kick Drum. I've been sort of faithful to the original but taken a bit of a liberty with the string arrangements in the second 'I look into the sky' bridge. I've also used the ending Richard Tandy played on the Time tour (incase you don't recognise it). And spliced in some lovely little quirky telephone pictures because why not!!! A little thing I've been doing on the videos is some light hearted 'product placement' (but I'm not getting paid) and this time see how many ELO CD albums you can spot. Enjoy. Rate and comment and none of you spiteful Leon fans downrating please. Little swines.
Piano tutorial of Telephone Line, by ELO. This ELO's song was composed by Jeff Lynne for their album A New World Record. This is one of my all times favorite songs, and ELO is also one of my favorite bands. Their music is fantastic. This video was made for teaching and educational purposes only. To help people to play piano. I hope this video can help you to play and enjoy this marvellous ELO's Song. Not copyright infringements are intended.
From their 1977 album Out Of The Blue this is the opening track from the side dedicated to the weather (which ended with Mr Blue Sky). A great track which stops, starts, goes fast then slow then fast again, ooh its all o'er the shop! I played this at full volume when I was 14 and next door would thump their disapproval in morse code. Again I've disabled the comment rating cos some dick-head with questionable parentage has it in for me. Sorry the synch is a little out during the quiet bit. Windows Movie Maker's fault!
