"Livin' Thing" by ELO.

OK, more 70's: Rumors abound as to the meaning of this '76 ELO Jeff Lynne composition. Anti-abortion? Loss of virginity? Environmental causes? Lynne himself has said that it is about love gone wrong. Background vocals by Patti Quatro (Suzi's sister - who can forget Leather Tuscadero on "Happy Days"?!). Peaked at #13. Part of the "Boogie Nights" soundtrack ('97).

Yesterday's answer: "Mr. Lonely" by Bobbi Vinton. KILLER falsetto! His other 3 #1 hits were "Roses Are Red", "Blue Velvet", and "There, I've Said It Again".
