[Video #64] from http://www.youtube.com/user/MetalGuru... the address for MetalGuruMessiah's Musical Paint Box! Check out my other videos!

The sad news out of Zanesville, Ohio where all those defenseless animals were set loose and then killed made me want to finish a video I've been playing with for a couple of months, for one of my all-time favorite E.L.O. songs, "Jungle" from Electric Light Orchestra's 1977 album, Out Of The Blue.

I think about all those beautiful animals terrified and lost in a world they don't know and the horrors they and so many animal lovers were put through...all because they were allowed to be placed in cages and neglected by a society with a moral and ethical obligation to protect them.

This song and video is my little tribute to the beauty of all the other "passengers" on this big blue ship.....living free in their natural habitat.

Like Jeff said:

'Wondrous is our great blue ship
That sails around the mighty sun
And joy to everyone that rides along!'

Indeed.

"Jungle" was released in 1977 on Electric Light Orchestra's double album Out Of The Blue. I have always loved the song and it's celebratory message.....a really unique and cool track. The remaster really brings out the massive percussion work that the band put into the piece......there is so much going on! Jeff Lynne has an extraordinary talent and has created an amazing body of work.

Hope you like it!

[Lyrics]

I was standing in the jungle, I was feeling alright
Mmmhmmm, Mmmhmmm
I was wondering in the darkness, in the middle of the night
Mmmhmmm, Mmmhmmm
The moon began to shine, I saw a clearing ahead
Mmmhmmm, Mmmhmmm
But what's that going on, I think I'm outta my head
Mmmhmmm, Mmmhmmm

Chooka chooka hoo la ley
Looka looka koo la ley

A hundred animals were gathered 'round in the night
Mmmhmmm, Mmmhmmm
And they were singing out a lovely song under the pale moonlight
Mmmhmmm, Mmmhmmm
I stood and stared for quite a while
Then a lion sang to me and smiled:
'Come join us if you so desire.'

They sang
Chooka chooka hoo la ley
That's what they sang
Looka looka koo la ley
Chooka chooka hoo la ley
That's what they sang
Looka looka koo la ley

I said now please explain the meaning of this song you sing
Mmmhmmm, Mmmhmmm
'Wondrous is our great blue ship
That sails around the mighty sun
And joy to everyone that rides along!'

They sang
Chooka chooka hoo la ley
That's what they sang
Looka looka koo la ley

And they danced

Pretty soon I knew the tune and
We sat and sang under the moon
And the jungle rang in joyful harmony

They sang
Chooka chooka hoo la ley
That's what they sang
Looka looka koo la ley
Chooka chooka hoo la ley
That's what they sang
Looka looka koo la ley

'Wondrous is our great blue ship
That sails around the mighty sun
And joy to everyone that rides along!'
