A stunning showcase of production work from Jeff Lynne and John Farrar. Just like Abba's "Super Trouper", Xanadu is an album with a rock solid repertoire. The record contains many hits from Electric Light Orchestra and Olivia Newton John.
Olivia gave us "Magic", "Suspended in time", "Suddenly" with Cliff Richard, and the albums best offering "Xanadu". Olivia in combination with The Tubes, swirled together the 1940's cabaret sound of the Andrews Sisters Song "Forget about the Blues", with the electrifying early eighties sound of "Dancin", performed by the Tubes. The mix Jells like dynamite and gives both tracks a whole new sparkle. Jeff Lynne's contribution gave this album it's unique sound, that makes this soundtrack an unforgettable classic. Tracks like "I'm alive", "the fall", "Don't walk away", and "All around the world" were recorded by Electric Light Orchestra.
If I could only take ten albums to a desert island, this would be one of them

Well dispite what the other main review might say this movie and/or soundtrack is not ridiculous. Honestly at the time of its release it was in fact a bomb but it in fact is an amazing movie. I saw this movie for the first time at a young age and I have adored it ever since. I find it to be highly underestimated but I also understand that it takes an intelligent person to find and pinpoint the greatness factor of this film. Actually I would like to get a hold of the the guy who rated it badly and called it ridiculous and show him a thing or two, he must be a typical, uncultured moron. Olivia looks fabulous in this movie and yes there are cheesy scenes but that is not what makes it so great. Also all of the amazing music, dance and style. This movie is full of every dance type and music type imaginable and also is full of life and it is one of those movies that just makes you feel great.Anyone who can't appriciate this movie at least theatrically speaking is just a fat lazy computer nerd that likes to see his name on a review on amazon.com because makes him feel better about the fact that he sucks...and by the way the little girl who watched this movie and was dazzled by it growing up is now a sophisticated actress whom you have probably seen in a musical or a movie. So are you going to take his word or mine. :)

Xanadu is one of those guilty pleasures in which I still indulge. Under a Cherry Moon used to be one as well, until I watched it with my husband and he pointed out just how stupid the damn thing was. Ruined forever. Art can seldom survive the cruel eye of objectivity.
In order to appreciate the movie (which I haven't seen since I was 10) or the soundtrack (which I still bust out on the record player) you have to have some context if you're going to have any affinity for it. If there aren't any secondary memories, just like Under a Cherry Moon, it's going to suck. Oh, and I mean suck.
My grandfather bought me the Xanadu soundtrack for my 10th birthday. Remember the good old days when you bought an album and it was scratched when you brought it home? You'd take it back only to get another copy scratched in the same place because the store got the shipment from the same distribution point? Well, my grandpa bought the record from the only record shop in his neighborhood which just so happened to be a head shop as well. God love him.
At 10, I had no idea what all the pipes on the shelves were for and I have no idea to this day if my grandpa knew either. But the best thing about Xanadu is remembering my 70-year old grandpa dealing with the 20-year old stoner behind the counter trying to exchange the record for the fifth time. Even without the drug references it was a scene only SNL could have come up with.
The movie probably sucks, as well does the album, but there's nothing like remembering your grandpa and all those days rollerskating in your bedroom singing at the top of your lungs, pretending you were dancing with Gene Kelly, oblivious to the fact that he had ever done anything other than Xanadu...not knowing anything about stoners...

When you consider that the music on this CD comes from the cheesy (guilty pleasure for some) 1980 musical "Xanadu", starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly, you'd assume that it's soundtrack would not have a chance; however this is soundtrack simply astounds as each song is simply amazing.
It features 10 tracks, including some of E.L.O.'s strongest songs ("I'm Alive, "All Over The World", among others), Olivia Newton John's #1 smash "Magic", a gorgeous duet by Newton John and Cliff Richard ("Suddenly") as well as the E.L.O penned "Xanadu" sung by Newton John. It also has a duet between Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly that would seem iffy at best on paper, but it also works.
I can't say enough about this release, which was unavailable in the U.S until a few years ago. It may be in my top 10 soundtracks ever. Enjoy the magic!!!! When I compare this CD to a lot of the junk that is put out there by way of soundtracks, it's amazing that a pre-marketing package can wipe the floor with all the focus group cross-marketing efforts that are now a material part of the music business.
