This classic ELO tune has a great orchestral intro and string flourishes throughout. Jeff Lynne sings some great vocals and lyrics. There are plenty of key changes that give the song a nice soaring arc. I always smile when I listen to the drummer. He is so basic, not a technical drummer at all, but exactly the right sound for this group. There are lots of typical ELO backup vocals to give a dreamy, nostalgic aura.
The song is 5:46 minutes long.
