Hello, I am DjPault. This blog is dedicated to Olivia Newton-John. I have been hopelessly devoted to Olivia ever since my aunt took me to see "Grease" in 1978 when I was eight years old. On this blog you'll find rare pictures, the latest news and more. I also run an 80's remix blog called Burning The Ground so come visit me there too.

Enjoy your visit and check bac often.

Olivia Newton-John & ELO - Xanadu (Promo Video)

Olivia Newton-John & ELO - Xanadu (Promo Video)

"Xanadu" 1980 Soundtrack

This is the original promotional video that was used on MTV and VH1. "Xanadu" is the title song from the album Xanadu, the soundtrack to the 1980 film of the same name. The song is performed by the Electric Light Orchestra and Olivia Newton-John. Newton-John sings the primary vocals, with ELO adding "parenthetic" vocals in the style of their other songs on the "Xanadu" soundtrack, along with providing the instrumentation. "Xanadu" reached #8 on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in 1980.
