ELO – Another Heart Breaks – 1981

Another Heart Breaks by ELO (Electric Light Orchestra) – 1981 UK

“Another heart breaks” is a song written and produced by Jeff Lynne, and performed by the ELO (Electric Light Orchestra). It was track 6 from their 1981 album Time. The track is 3:55 long and mostly instrumental with the verse “Another Heart Breaks” repeated over and over with a 69 BPM tempo. It’s a slow song, mood-setting, atmospheric, yet a very modern sound for the early 1980s that brings side A to a conclusion and allows the listener to take a breather while still fitting in the melancholic tone and the concept of the album Time, where the protagonist travels in the future and is nostalgic about the “good old 1980s”…

It was released as a single in January 1982 as the B-Side for “The Rain is Falling”.
