HELLO HELLO

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Yours Truly KJS has been driving around the last few weeks re-listening to ELO Part II's self-titled debut album from 1991. And what a great album cover it had too! Apart from the much underrated Eric Troyer song "Honest Men", I just love the 1:15 long ditty at the beginning of the album entitled "Hello Hello" - co-written by Bev BevanNeil LockwoodPete Haycock and Eric Troyer. The lyrics are jolly and uplifting:

Hello, Hello, it's great to see you once again,
It's been so long,
We were such friends,
A long, long time ago.

Hello, Hello, your smiling face,
Your warm embrace,
We've been apart for far too long,
It felt so wrong,
Nice to know, you're coming over
Nice to know, the wait is over.

Hello, Hello, is that a smile on your face
Here's a kiss, Just in case,
This one's for you.

Hello, Hello, it's great to see you once again
It's been so long,
We were such friends,
A long, long time ago.

Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 11-Apr-2010
