 Harvestman, Lynne was a massive fan of the beatles and aimed to pick up where they left off, the idea of pop and orchestra together was used by the beatles first, ELO wanted to build it up to a new level though

 I've heard that ELO was a sort of attempt at making what the Beatles would have sounded like had they made it into the '70s...consider that while listening to "Don't Bring Me Down", and it seems awfully plausible.

 With acknowledgement to bigtom, uploaded some cleaner label scans.

  Billboard reported this song had substantial album cut play directly out of the box when the album was released, with some stations even abandoning the then-current single "Shine a Little Love" in favor of this song. This sped up the release of the single in the US.
