"Eldorado Overture" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
The dreamer, the unwoken fool,
In dreams, no pain will kiss the brow.
The love of ages fills the head.
The days that linger there in prey of emptiness,
Of burned out dreams.
The minutes calling through the years.
The universal dreamer rises up above his earthly burden.
Journey to the dead of night.
High on a hill in Eldorado.

    General Comment It is totally mystical, and takes me back to the time I first heard it.

    General CommentThat flute or whatever around the 0:50 mark totally reminds me of The Wizard of Oz... and its not just the pre-knowledge of the album cover....
