The Electric Light Orchestra, or ELO, was a British rock band that gained popularity in the 1970s and 80s for their unique fusion of rock, pop, and classical music. One of their most popular singles was "Confusion," which was released in 1979 as a 7" vinyl record. The B-side of the record was another hit song, "Last Train to London." Both of these songs were later included on ELO's album "Discovery."

"Confusion" features a driving beat and catchy chorus that made it a hit on both sides of the Atlantic. The song's lyrics are somewhat cryptic, but they seem to be about the confusion and chaos of modern life. The music video for "Confusion" was also notable, featuring a high-energy performance by the band and a surreal, futuristic setting.

"Last Train to London" is a more upbeat and danceable track that has a disco-inspired sound. The song's lyrics tell the story of a woman waiting for a train to London, and the catchy chorus is sure to get stuck in your head. The song was also a commercial success, reaching the top 10 in several countries
