Skeletons in the closet


No, not talking about Gay Halloween either (get it? :) LOL)


This morning I've been chatting with cb and out of the blue he asks me what I think about Xanadu the movie.


I can't lie... I love it. It's cheesy 80's ilk, but I love it.


I can still quote lines from it left and right, and while I'm making fun of the moves, I can probably (if forced) dance along with the skating Xanadu finale number at the end.


It was Olivia Newton-John at her leg warmer wearing finest! The music was, I think, a great transition from what was starting to wane about the 70's but starting to come into music fashion for the 80's.


If you've not seen the movie... go ahead, you know you want to. If you can't wait to rip on the movie, I ask you to ask yourself one question first. Did you like Grease 2? If you did... you better NOT be mean to Xanadu....
XANADU..... XANADUUUUUU... In Xanadu... now that I'm here, now that you're near... In Xanadu.

See, told you.. Skeleton in the closet.

Xanadu, your neon lights will shine...

I, too, enjoy this film. Mostly for the music though. ELO, ONJ, and the Tubes! Classic!

You have to believe we are magic...

If you can laugh at the film, then, yeah, it's great. The Broadway show is/was a laughfest! And, Grease I OR II? They accuse 90210 (the original) of bad casting with 20 somethings as teenagers. Stockard Channing? I mean, c'mon...

Wow! And I'm ashamed of Disorderlies?

Xanadu is also one of my husband's all time favorites. When I mentioned that on my blog, I got several emails telling me that my husband was in the closet! I don't think he's gay, but he does love that movie. He still marvels at the fact that he married me even though I fell asleep every time he tried to get me to watch it. For him, Olivia can almost do no wrong. Though he did have a problem with some of the arrangements when she sang with our local symphony back in Michigan. Otherwise, however, she is perfect in his eyes.
