X is for Xanadu

This is a the most difficult one so far.  Seriously ‘Xanadu’ is the only thing I can think of so here goes….I love Olivia Newton John.  As a child of the 80’s, she was my idol and I wanted to be her.  I watched all her movies including this one. Grease is one of my favorite movies but this one, um wow.  I re-watched it a few years ago and man is it crazy bad.  But like most 80’s cheese movies, as a kid, I loved it. This movie has everything —  Roller Skating, dancing on the ceiling with Gene Kelly, fantasy, love story, music…I still love the song ‘Magic’.

Here are the lyrics:

Come take my hand, you should know me
I’ve always been in your mind
You know that I will be kind
I’ll be guiding you

Building your dream has to start now
There’s no other road to take
You won’t make a mistake
I’ll be guiding you

You have to believe we are magic
Nothin’ can stand in our way
You have to believe we are magic
Don’t let your aim ever stray
And if all your hopes survive, destiny will arrive
I’ll bring all your dreams alive, for you
I’ll bring all your dreams alive, for you

From where I stand you are home free
The planets align so rare
There’s promise in the air
And I’m guiding you

Through every turn I’ll be near you
I’ll come anytime you call
I’ll catch you when you fall
I’ll be guiding you

You have to believe we are magic
Nothin’ can stand in our way
You have to believe we are magic
Don’t let your aim ever stray
And if all your hopes survive, destiny will arrive
I’ll bring all your dreams alive, for you
I’ll bring all your dreams alive, for you

You have to believe we are magic
Nothin’ can stand in our way
You have to believe we are magic
Don’t let your aim ever stray
And if all your hopes survive, destiny will arrive
I’ll bring all your dreams alive, for you
I’ll bring all your dreams alive, for you

Powerful stuff!
