Everybody all around the world, gotta tell you what I just heard
There's gonna be a party all over the world

I got a message on the radio, but where it came from I don't really know
And I heard these voices calling all over the world

All over the world, everybody got the word
Everybody everywhere is gonna feel tonight

Everybody walkin' down the street, everybody movin' to the beat
They're gonna get hot down in the U.S.A.
New York, Detroit, L.A.

We're gonna take a trip across the sea, everybody come along with me
We're gonna hit the night down in gay Paris


London, Hamburg, Paris, Rome, Rio, Hong Kong, Tokyo
L.A., New York, Amsterdam, Monte Carlo, Shard End and


Everybody all around the world, gotta tell you what I just heard
Everybody walkin' down the street, I know a place where we all can meet
Everybody gonna have a good time, everybody will shine till the daylight


All over the world, everybody got the word
All over the world, everybody got the word
All over the world, everybody got the word

    General Commentfor those old enough to remember Vinyl LP "records", side 2 of the Xanadu soundtrack has 5 ELO songs written by Jeff Lynne and performed by the group for the movie.

    For me, these songs represent the end of my childhood/early teen years of the 70's, and the start of a new decade.

    This album takes me to back a simpler time ... just like the movie tried to do. I see it now and realize the irony.

    enjoy ELO!

    General CommentJeff Lynne does some incredible things with his voice in this song. And everything else about it is brilliant. I sometimes put this song on repeat and listen to it half a dozen or ten times in a row, putting it in a very small class of songs.

    BTW Shard End, ironically included in the list of high-end night life cities is the low-rent part of Birmingham where Jeff grew up.
