Song of the Day: The Move – “Blackberry Way”

Today marks the 70th birthday of influential singer-songwriter Roy Wood, who was a co-founder of Electric Light Orchestra, the Move, and Wizzard. ELO grew out of The Move, but eventually Wood and Jeff Lynne went their separate ways — the story is quite interesting, and Wood says he and Lynne still remain friends in spite of their different directions. This 1968 track was one of nine U.K. top 20 hits from the Move, and the only one that reached No. 1.
