A classic track with a good vibe from 1977

ELO is one of my favorite bands of all time! 



This might be my favorite album, ever!   A wonderful concept album about a time traveler who longs for his own time/home.

There's several bands from that era that are long overdue. Jouney for one.

 

And I think Jeff Lynne just got either inducted or nominated. Something. Someone want to clarify that?

They are nominated!  Journey too, and Yes.   Some good bands on the list this year.   

Kraftwerk deserves a spot, but I doubt they'll get the votes sadly.
