Shine A Little ELOve!

#1,653: The most romantic day (allegedly) of the year is here again and Yours Truly KJS/ELOBF thought it would be apt to look at the number of ELO/Jeff Lynne (and related) songs that include the word 'Love' in their title. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of that search is that of the hundreds of songs in the ELO songbook, there are surprisingly few even if one includes covers and ELO Part II in scope. You'll find below a list of ten ELOve themed songs headed up by the two most obvious songs from "Discovery" and including two trax from "Long Wave".
Fans of Roy Wood will doubtless also be aware of Wizzard's "This Is The Story Of My Love (Baby)" and Roy's duet with Annie Haslam"I Never Believed In Love". We mustn't forget Bev Bevan's involvement in Quill's "Love On The Run" either.

Please drop ELOBF a line if you think KJS has missed any further examples. Happy Valentine's Day!

*** Until next "Time" in the ELOBF Universe ... 14-Feb-2022 ***
