Surprising they got it out just in time for Valentine's, According to Jeff Lynne the quality of the demo was absolute s**t and took him about a week or two fixing it up for new instrumentation then it got sped up for reasons beyond my understanding but I still think it's more poppier and Beatlesy than Free As A Bird.

It was more successful than 'Free As A Bird' but then 'Real Love' was a more fully-formed demo resulting less work needing done to get it to a releasable standard. As for the sped-up vocal, no idea why but it was unnecessary.
