This was Jeff Lynne's brilliant marketing ability at work. He knew kids would eat that backwards devil music shite up. He must have come from a really repressive background to be so attuned to that spirit of rebellion. I think the song was named "Fire in the Hole" (snicker) and it's been used just about everywhere but most notably for sports promos. Its most memorable feature is a short burst of highly compressed acoustic guitar (possibly 12 string) followed by a glorious orchestral chorus. It took me a while to recall the name, I always confused this with Eldorado. I got on the right track when I heard the hint about evident backward speaking on the recording.

Here's one that should be easy. There aren't that many that can pen the following:

Girls' faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history

The one with Buckingham and Nicks. Too polished, too meaningless.

Best regards!

They took over the show and the others went along for the ride. Rumour has it that Peter chose the name and when asked why said I'm not planning on staying in the band

+1 to that

The early years - everything before "the White Album" / "Rumors" were far more sincere to my thinking. Sure, Stevie looked pretty good in those lacy outfits, but just too glossy for me.

OK, the version I heard was that Peter wanted to get John McVie to join and told him we'll include your name in the band. I'm curious, gonna have a look see.

If you mean Peter Green solo, I really like his cut "Fool No More". It's about as good a blues guitar example as any I can think of. I love the laconic timing with runs that never seem to end. Have we given up on this game?
