Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O. / “SHOWDOWN” / live, Wembley Stadium, median expected tempo chart

Seems to me that songs I don’t fall in love with *right away*, but rather grow on me over a year or two, become my favorites.

“Showdown” Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O. – median expected tempo diagram

I was lucky enough to see and hear the fantastic Jeff Lynne with *his* E.L.O. in Philadelphia last month.

Seems to me that songs I don’t fall in love with *right away*, but rather grow on me over a year or two, become my favorites.

When the band played this in my wife’s home town of Philadelphia last month, SHOWDOWN was unexpectedly the song I enjoyed the most.

Respect to allJeff,

“… with the eyes of one who hates for just being born.” As good as it gets.

“An absolute classic. I’ve seen Bruce 12 times in England, Wales and in the USA, but this is the one song I’ve never seen him do. Will be in Cardiff on July 23rd, so fingers crossed.”
