I do love this album! It has to be one of the finest soundtracks ever produced, working totally as a 'pop' album also. Olivia Newton-John comes out well on top with her 'side', which features duets with the likes of Cliff Richard, The Tubes and Gene Kelly! Her US #1, Magic, is probably the most exquisite thing here. A beautiful swirling melody with ONJ's sweet voice hitting every note with great precision. Suspended In Time is another fan fave. It was never released as a single in the UK or US, but would surely have been a chart topper had it been. Dancin' is a fabulous big band/rock fusion between Olivia and The Tubes and though probably not single material, it's a definite highlight. Whenever You're Away From Me, a 40's style duet with Gene Kelly, shouldn't work but it does. If you've seen the movie you'll remember the beautiful dance sequence that goes with the track. Suddenly, with Cliff, was another hit, though quite a small one, but like the rest of the material flows wonderfully.
Olivia also crops up on ELO's 'side' (the original LP had 5 songs by ONJ on side 1 and 5 by ELO on side 2) duetting on the title track. UK fans will remember it soaring to #1 in the summer of 1980. It's a brilliantly catchy tune (if a little repetitive!) that pushes Olivia's often wispy vocals to new heights. Olivia should team up with Jeff Lynne again!
The other 4 ELO tracks are also alarmingly commercial, but in truth, these aren't their strongest songs. For that you'll have to seek out Discovery, Out Of The Blue and A New World Record. However, I'm Alive and All Over The World are pop gems, the latter in particular really brightens the day. The Xanadu Soundtrack is a joyous listening experience and I recommend it unreservedly. It's been remastered so it sounds great, too!

I am so pleased to have this on CD at last, it only took me 32 years to find a copy. The only way to describe the music from both E.L.O. and Olivia Newton John is joyfull. That is the feeling all the way through, favourite tracks are Magic for Olivia and I'm Alive by E.L.O. I am not a big fan of Cliff Richard, but he has the occasional gem and his duet with Olivia on "Suddenly" is one of them, their voices are so good together. This album reminds me of the begining of the eighties, the feeling of optimism and anything being possible I felt at that time. Who could ask for more?

I heard the songs on this album before watching the movie, so I guess it was the quality of the music which led me to see it. Even though I found the story a bit far-fetched, the music was as good in the film as on the album, albeit with fewer songs on the album. Nevertheless, as a huge ELO fan I enjoyed the unique fusion of music styles between ELO and Olivia, with some worthwhile contributions from The Tubes and Gene Kelly. "Whenever you're away from me" is, in my opinion, a great piece of swing music, and both Olivia's and Gene's vocals do it much justice. Composition plays a big part too, with a certain erstwhile member of the Shadows (John Farrar) penning the excellent "Magic", and no-one can deny the powerful song-writing of the excellent Jeff Lynne. All these ingredients make this a worthwhile purchase if one is interested in diversity of music styles, even if the movie wasn't all that great. I have owned this album on vinyl and cassette and will now, upon completion of this review, order it on CD from Amazon. Enjoy!

The movie is awful but the sound track is excellent, to me the only redeeming factor apart from Olivia Newton-John looking hot. The first 5 tracks are Olivia & duets with Cliff Richard, the Tubes and Gene Kelly, the next 4 are ELO/Jeff Lynne with the final track being Xanadu itself written by Lynne and sung by Olivia. Sound quality is OK but if you are particularly a fan of ELO you should consider buying All Over The World: The Very Best Of ELO which has their music remastered.

I'm sure it's pure coincidence that my favourite movie soundtracks are Grease and Xanadu. I also liked Grease 2 but we'll keep that a secret.

Xanadu was the first movie I ever saw on a pirated VHS video. Goodness what an impact that had on me. I thought it was the coolest thing ever - there was skating! And singing! Things like plot didn't really matter to me in the early 80s. Yes, it's a silly movie but like Sister Act and Miss Congeniality, when it's on TV I could happily zone out and tune in.

The CD is jam packed with gems. Olivia + ELO = pure aural bliss. The orchestrations are spectacular - from the stirring I'm Alive to the unexpectedly moving Suspended In Time to the whispery yet cheesy Suddenly to the thumping title track - they've brought so much pleasure to me over the years. I can still listen to any track and be instantly transported to the heady innocent (for me) days of my childhood. 5 stars!

Xanadu as is, is a great soundtrack, Olivia has never
sounded better, and ELO, Just great, but in the movie
the section where Oliva sings at Xanadu, and changes from
rocker, to cowgirl, these songs are missing, the rocker chick
number especially is great, I would love to here this
song in it's complete form, This would be a great selling boost,
WHERE ARE THE LOST XANADU SONGS?
