If you're in the pro group you're getting all excited/nostalgic/bouncy right now. If in the con group you're leaving vitriol in the comments and treating your next meeting/client/customer to your own special brand of asshattery.

No, the song's not deep. Yes, it's disco. But shucks, I shamelessly and geekily fall into the first category two paragraphs up. Mr Blue is one of my happy songs, one that cheers me up for stupid reasons, and one that I'll likely bounce around to even in my inevitable zombie apocalypse hideout.

Just last week I heard The Spinto Band's cover of the song for the first time. Of course there are decent others. There's:
The Spinto Band:
0002 Spinto Band - Mr Blue Sky (ELO) by Mr. Shuffleupagus
07 Mr Blue Sky by Mr. Shuffleupagus
And the original ELO:04 - Electric Light Orchestra - Mr. Blue Sky by Mr. Shuffleupagus
The question is: who covers better? The Spinto Band or Lily Allen? Vote carefully--your post-apocalypse allegiances may depend on this one.
There are only so many guns to go around, remember...
