Calling America Can't get a message through Calling America That's what she said to do Calling America That's where she has to be Calling America She left a number for me. But I'm just talking to a satellite Twenty-thousand miles up in the sky each night Yeah we're living in In a modern world (dum) All I had to do was pick up the phone I'm out in space trying to talk to someone Yeah we're living in In a modern world  . The eighth track and first single from Electric Light Orchestra’s 1986 album Balance of Power. The song reached in the US charts (the final Electric Light Orchestra single to chart in the United States) and in the United Kingdom. Calling America" Track Info.

The Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) are an English rock band formed in Birmingham in 1970 by strumentalists Jeff Lynne and Roy Wood with drummer Bev Bevan. Their music is characterised by a fusion of Beatlesque pop, classical arrangements, and futuristic iconography. After Wood's departure in 1972, Lynne became the band's leader, arranging and producing every album while writing virtually all of their original material.

Somebody told her that there was a place like heaven Across the water on a 747 Yeah, we're living in In a modern world. And pretty soon she's really got the notion Of flying out across the big blue ocean Yeah, we're living in In a modern world. Talk is cheap on satellite But all I get is static information I'm still here re-dial on automatic.

ELO was one of those bands in the 70's/80's that reminds me of a time when things seem to make more sense. ELO could definitely put a smile on your face while putting out a message of happiness, tears and joy all in three part harmony, strings, percussion and a electric guitar. It's my birthday, this makes me happy! 4 years назад.
