Electric Light Orchestra : Shine A Little Love
On May 31, 1979 Electric Light Orchestra released Discovery, the band's first #1 album in the U.K. Nicknamed "Disco Very" because of its whole hearted embrace of the genre, the album spawned five singles including the Top 10 "Shine A Little Love". Of the song Jeff Lynne said
"A bit of a disco beat on this one, and quite a lot of things going on, forty piece string section and all. It's very jolly and bouncy and I must have been in a very good mood when I wrote it!"
"Don't Bring Me Down" was an even bigger hit peaking at #3 in the U.K. and #4 in the U.S., the band's biggest hit in America.
While most of us hear "Don't bring me down, Bruuuce!", Lynne says the word is a made up variation of "Gruß" a Swiss/German greeting he must have heard while recording Discovery in Munich.
"Last Train to London" is another catchy disco number on the album.
