"It's Over" is a song recorded by the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO).
The song is the second track from the LP Out of the Blue. It was the last single to be lifted from the album and was released in the United States only, becoming a minor hit. The orchestral beginning was actually the end of "Mr. Blue Sky" reversed.

The song features the keyboard talents of Richard Tandy prominently, as well as the usual orchestration conducted by Louis Clark. Composer Jeff Lynne was moved to write the instrumental piece after watching a documentary on the killing of whales, similar to Jon Anderson (of Yes fame)'s penning of "Don't Kill the Whale" in 1978.
In the 1980s and early 1990s, a portion of the song was featured during the nightly sign-off on Toronto television station CFTO-TV.
