Electric Light Orchestra / Olivia Newton-John - Xanadu mp3 album

Xanadu" is the title song from the soundtrack album Xanadu, and is the title song from the 1980 film of the same name. The song is performed by the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) and Olivia Newton-John. Newton-John sings the primary vocals, with ELO lead singer Jeff Lynne adding "parenthetic" vocals in the style of their other songs on the Xanadu soundtrack, along with ELO providing the instrumentation. It is Jeff Lynne's favourite song of all that he has written.

Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Can't Stop the Music, comes the roller-skating Olivia Newton John in Xanadu. This soundtrack is fluff stuff to be sure, but some pearls float amongst the mire. Lead-off "Magic" remains a fine single. Olivia Newton-John, Electric Light Orchestra.

However, in the UK, Jet Records released Xanadu first in defiance of MCA's wishes, along with ELO's I'm Alive. In August of 1980, MCA finally released Xanadu along with ELO's All Over The World in North America. Xanadu is ELO's first and only hit and Olivia Newton-John's third hit on the UK charts. It entered the UK charts on June 21, 1980, hit for two consecutive weeks on July 12th and 19th, and stayed on the charts for 11 weeks. It replaced Don McLean's rendition of Crying at the UK spot and was replaced at by Use It Up And Wear It Out by Odyssey.
