That's the British band Electric Light Orchestra putting the "drive" in the Honda Accord spot with"Hold On Tight To Your Dreams," one of the more than two dozen Top 40 singles the group charted between 1972 and 1986. Other ELO hits include "Turn to Stone," "Livin' Thing," "Evil Woman" and "Don't Bring Me Down." Founding member Jeff Lynne went on to become one of The Traveling Wilburys alongside Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty and former Beatle George Harrison.
