Did You Know: “Don’t Bring Me Down” By Electric Light Orchestra

That song about a girl who thinks she’s too good for the guy she’s with is back on ‘Tickets @ 2.’

This was the first ELO song that did not use strings. After recording it, they fired their string section, leaving four members in the band. ELO leader Jeff Lynne wrote the song late in the sessions for the Discovery album. “Don’t Bring Me Down” is the highest charting ELO hit in both the UK and US, it peaked at # 4 on the US chart, and # 3 in the UK.

When you hear it play between two and three we’ll take caller # 10 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win  a 4-Pack of tickets to “Come And Get It” this summer at the O.C. Fair…happening July 12th through August 11th.
