3352. Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) - When Time Stood Still
From: Time: Year: 1981; Genre: Progressive Rock/Symphonic Rock/New Wave
Yesterday when listening to some music I had this song come on; I immediately knew this was today's pick. Whilst it absolutely fits the theme of the Time rock opera it was sadly left out of the final record until the remaster. However it was released as a B-Side to the biggest hit from the album: Hold On Tight. This is one that in my opinion fuses a lot of the best aspects of ELO/Jeff Lynne's music; there's definitely a lot of Beatles influence in this one as well as the electronic-symphonic goodness that they're known for.

Hear When Time Stood Still on YouTube.
