Song of the Week: “Yours Truly, 2095” – Electric Light Orchestra

19 Feb

ELO’s 1981 concept album Time is a synth-heavy, often humorous look at time travel and what life will be like in the late 21st century. The big hit from this album (in Europe) was “Hold on Tight,” best known in America as the soundtrack to the mid-80s “coffee generation” commercials. Another great single from the record is “Here Is the News,” which considers the topics that local news will cover in the future. This week’s tune is about a guy who, pining for lost love, ends up falling for an android.
