The theme I chose for this year is 

Greatest Hits as suggested by AI

It’s important to note that AI was only used for the song suggestion, not in the actual putting together of the post. 

Today our suggested Greatest Hit is:  Xanadu

Wikipedia tells us this about the song:

"Xanadu" is the title song from the soundtrack of the 1980 musical film of the same name. Written by Jeff Lynne of the English rock band Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), the song is performed by English-born Australian singer, songwriter and actress Olivia Newton-John, with Lynne adding parenthetic vocals in the style of his other songs on the Xanadu soundtrack, and ELO providing the instrumentation. It was Lynne's least favourite of his own songs. Released as a single in June 1980, it reached number one in several European countries and was the band's only UK number-one single when it peaked there for two weeks in July 1980. It was certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry. It also peaked at number eight on the US Billboard Hot 100.



  1. I loved Xanadu, the movie and soundtrack, and I guess the story of the muse has stuck with me for a long time. The absolutely love the muse and the creator have with each other and the pain of parting.

  2. Love this song and that movie. So happy to have found you, on this and the other connected pages. Really enjoyable content! :)

  3. Finally, a dud choice imo. I love Olivia Newton John - in fact I had a massive crush on her when Grease came out, but Xanadu? Yeah...nah.

  4. Oh my...love ELO and like Olivia but this 8s such a dreck. Poor Gene Kelly must not have been thinking straight taking his role and his character name from the film Covergirl, a great musical from the 40s
