While I was at work today, the song “Don’t Bring Me Down” by Electric Light Orchestra came on. I was still baffled over one section where they sing, “Don’t bring me dowwnnnn…” and then after that they roll their “r”s to say a word that sounded like the name Bruce. I’m not alone in thinking this, either. They made fun of the song on “I Love the 80s” and were asking, “Why would they be singing about a guy named Bruce?” Well today I finally had enough of the mystery, so I looked up the song’s lyrics.
They sing, “Don’t bring me dowwnnnn…(grrrosss!)” Ah ha! The word they roll out is “gross”! Still weird, but ah ha nonetheless! Anyway, if you want to hear it for yourself, here’s a video for you. Enjoy!
