Watch Jeff Lynne’s ELO Perform on Jimmy Fallon


Jeff Lynne and Electric Light Orchestra recently performed two tracks on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. ELO performed their new track ‘When I Was A Boy’ as well as web exclusive performance of ‘Mr. Blue Sky’.

The band were aided by a small string section and a group of back up singers for the performance. ELO recently released their track ‘When I Was A Boy’ which was off the band’s newly released album Alone In The Universe.

Speaking about the track in a recent interview Jeff Lynne said “My interest in music grabbed me when I was a boy,” adding that “I used to go under my bed listening to the crystal set [radio]. ”

Lynne continued by saying “There weren’t many good stations back then. You only got about an hour of pop music and that was on a Saturday night. That’s what led to the song, which was one of the quickest I’ve ever written lyrically and musically.”
