Del Shannon was a huge influence on Jeff Lynne and ELO. "For A Little While" sounds like something Lynne would have come up with two decades later.

I've enjoyed ELO over the years, and I know Lennon referred to their style as "Son of The Beatles" but a lot of Lynne's songwriting sounds to me like a blend of Santo & Johnny's "Sleepwalk" with Del's brilliant compositions.
