When I Was A Boy: New Promo Video Goes Back to the Story

The classy new promo video from Jeff Lynne's ELO also acknowledges the classic ELO line-up
#998: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! The emotive and poignant new music video for "When I Was A Boy" by Jeff Lynne's ELO is due to receive its American premiere tonight (Tuesday 27th October) on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon at 11:35PM (EST) on NBC. The video (the third released to date) is directed by Warren Fu and is a wonderful telling of the life story of Jeff from his early days in Birmingham through his time with ELO and The Traveling Wilburys right up to his present day return as Jeff Lynne's ELO. The film - replete with much Blue Sky - has a style and feel reminiscent of the award winning visual promo for "Free As A Bird" by The Beatles and can be viewed either via the Jimmy Fallon Tumblr page or via ELOVEVO @ YouTube below thus:

ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) recommends "When I Was A Boy" and "Alone In The Universe" by Jeff Lynne's ELO to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELORoy WoodThe MoveThe Idle Race'Brum Beat'The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 27-Oct-2015


  1. When I saw the video I had the same reaction as when I first heard the song, it was very emotional indeed. He is getting very good at being personal

  2. He';s older now and can afford to let his guard down just a little. That comes with age.
