X is for Xanadu
In part Merriam-Webster calls Xanadu “a generalized term for an idyllic place.” A paradise to escape to, an island dream… or an 80’s movie. Ok so I LOVE music, and musicals have a special place in my heart. It is NOT an academy award winner but it was a “cute” film. And I may be bias as I have always loved Olivia Newton-Johns singing as well as ELO. So the album does reside in my record collection. I unfortunately don’t have the DVD yet, but every once in a while it pops up on tv.
But if I were to pick an idyllic place for my own Xanadu, it would be in the country near water. Lots of gentle animals to see and NO bugs. But back to the movie…
I also have to credit Gene Kelley. He didn’t get to dance a lot in the movie, but he has always made it look so doggone easy! Really smooth moves!
So, yes I am a fan of Xanadu and I am only a little afraid to admit it. LOL!
