    My favorite soundtrack EVER!


    As in my review of the DVD on this site, Xanadu is pure underrated camp fun. I have always loved this soundtrack. "Magic" is perhaps Olivia's best single and "Xanadu" is close. Her songs have stood the test of time and lickily have not become dated as with her later 80s hits. "Suspended in Time" for some unknown reason was never released as a single in the US. It is one of her greatest ballads. The hit Cliff Richard duet, "Suddenly" is another. Their voices blend perfectly. They have recorded together numerous times before and since, but this is their best work together. This cd includes "Dancin" a duet with the Tubes that blends big band and rock. and the big band track "Whenever You're Away from Me" with Gene Kelly. The ELO tracks, for the most part, are equally brilliant. "All Over the World" and "I'm Alive" were US hits. ELO re-recorded "Xanadu" without Olivia Newton-John's flawless vocals for a UK compilation of their hits a few years ago, which is surprising being that the Olivia/ELO version was their only UK #1! I believe it peaked at # 8 in the US.The Olivia-less version is perhaps the worst song on the UK ELO compilation whereas it is one of the best on their US hits version. Olivia is touring in 2009! Go see her and see several of these songs live. You won't be sorry.

    OK, so I had to reach back more than 30 years, but this one's part of our culture whether we like it or not. (And I happen to love it!) If you're a child of the '80s, you remember this. So put on your leg warmers and roller skates (NOT roller blades) and groove on!
