"Shine a Little Love" is a song by the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). It was released as a single in the US and UK in 1979. The song is the first track on their 1979 album Discovery. This was one of the band's most commercially successful singles, peaking at no. 4 in Canada, no. 6 in the UK Singles Chart and no. 8 in the US Billboard Hot 100. The song subsequently became one of their biggest worldwide hits as well. The 12" release was also available in white vinyl. Two different promotional videos were filmed for the single, a recording studio version shot on 35mm film, minus the band's three string players and a video-taped version made for the Discovery video album, featuring the full touring line-up. "A bit of a disco beat on this one, and quite a lot of things going on, forty piece string section and all. It's very jolly and bouncy and I must have been in a very good mood when I wrote it!"  Discovery remaster (2001), Jeff Lynne Billboard praised the song's " catchy melody," "intricate musical techniques, special effects and its "tight, cohesive sound."
