"Xanadu" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
A place where nobody dared to go
The love that we came to know
They call it Xanadu
And now, open your eyes and see
What we have made is real
We are in Xanadu

A million lights are dancing
And there you are, a shooting star
An everlasting world
And you're here with me, eternally
Xanadu, Xanadu
(Now we are here) in Xanadu
Xanadu, Xanadu
(Now we are here) in Xanadu
Xanadu, your neon lights
Will shine for you, Xanadu

The love that echoes of long ago
You needed the world to know
They are in Xanadu
The dream that came
Through a million years
That lived through all the tears
It came to Xanadu

A million lights are dancing
And there you are, a shooting star
An everlasting world
And you're here with me, eternally
Xanadu, Xanadu
(Now we are here) in Xanadu
Xanadu, Xanadu
(Now we are here) in Xanadu

Now that I'm here
Now that you're near, in Xanadu
Now that I'm here
Now that you're near, in Xanadu
Xanadu

    General CommentThe dream that came through a million years
    That lived on through all the tears, it came to Xanadu
    A million lights are dancing and there you are, a shooting star

    General Commenti loved the movie, and i really didn't pay attention to the song on the soundtrack of, "Xanadu". I think that Electric Light Orcashrea's songs are much better.

    General CommentMy Favorite Movie EVER! Oh my this movie is one of my best memories. My dad (whom I tease is "slightly gay") loves this movie and we watched it all the time. So much so that even my morbid brother knows the songs and can quote the movies. We love every song from the movie and always sing them. It never fails that when I see him, this movie is put in the ole DVD and enjoyed by all (yes, even my bro).
