Livin’ Thing

The Electric Light Orchestra was famous during the 70’s and 80’s and was very a unique band.  They created a new sound all their own by combining the grandness of the cello and multi-vocal harmonies with contemporary themes and lyrics.  I recently stumbled onto this 1977 performance of “Livin’ Thing” from the American Music Awards and fell instantly in love with the rainbow triangle stage as well as each members’ colorful outfits.  I also love the way the camera moves, making use of the different stripes and angles in the background. In fact, I think I’ve been hypnotized.
