The difference of course is in that what daily drama series relies on: we, the viewer, have no idea when the story is ever ending, or if it is ever ending.

Even Shakespeare wrote in soap opera form. Charles Dickens honed his craft on: the soap operas of his time. A Tale Of Two Cities was one of many books originally written as “soap operas.”

“Showdown” Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O. – median expected tempo diagram

I was lucky enough to see and hear the fantastic Jeff Lynne with *his* E.L.O. in Philadelphia last month.

Seems to me that songs I don’t fall in love with *right away*, but rather grow on me over a year or two, become my favorites.

When the band played this in my wife’s home town of Philadelphia last month, SHOWDOWN was unexpectedly the song I enjoyed the most.

Respect to all,
