As you might have noticed, I love watching old music videos on the Internet. Lately, I’ve been watching a lot of videos from Top Of The Pops, the BBC’s weekly music show, which was broadcast from 1964 to 2006. On this show, some of Britain’s chart-topping artists were invited to lip-synch to their current hits.

Today, I ran across footage of the Electric Light Orchestra and “Roll Over Beethoven”:

Which leads to the inevitable next question: what on earth does lead singer/guitarist Jeff Lynne have on his head? Is that supposed to be a wig? Sure, it was 1973  so you have to make allowances, but what is going on here?
