* ArtifactTitle: As time went on, the role of the string section decreased, rendering the "light orchestra" part of their name more and more moot. By the release of ''Time'', the violins had disappeared entirely (though the synths still provide a lush orchestration often).

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: "Oh No Not Susan" got away with the word "fucking" during a time when the radio was censored heavily. This may have something to do with it being difficult to distinguish the word with all the double-tracking going on in the song's vocals. This is one of the very seldom times that Jeff Lynne has cursed in his songs; another example would be the use of "shit" in "Easy Money", from ''Zoom''.

Added DiffLines:

* WeatherReportOpening: "Mr. Blue Sky" begins with a literal weather report, delivered with the crackle and reverb of a radio broadcaster predicting a clear day ahead. The track then launches into first verse of the song, with Jeff Lynne breathlessly describing a beautiful day with cloudless skies and abundant sunshine:
--> '''Intro''': "Morning! Today's forecast calls for blue skies."
--> '''Verse 1''': The sun is shining in the sky\\
There ain't a cloud in sight\\
It's stopped raining, everybody's in the play\\
And don't you know, it's a beautiful new day, hey
