Bedtime Music: ELO - Strange Magic

If you've read my blog for a while, you've probably guessed that the Alan Parsons Project is my favorite band. In case you were wondering (and even if you weren't), my second-most favorite band is Electric Light Orchestra. (I've never stopped to think whom my third-most favorite band is. ;) ) Strange Magic was originally released on ELO's 1975 album, Face the Music. This version here is from a 2001 concert recorded in Los Angeles that was released as a DVD, Zoom Tour Live. (Yes, I do own the DVD.) "Strange Magic," of course, is one of those songs that rely upon the dreamy melody that ELO is famous for.
