Xanadu song lyrics

 A place where nobody dared to go
 The love that we came to know
 They call it Xanadu
 (It takes your breath and it'll leave you blind)
 
 And now, open your eyes and see
 What we have made is real
 We are in Xanadu
 (A dream of it, we offer you)
 
 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, Xanadu, (now we are here) 
 In Xanadu!
 
 Xanadu your neon lights will shine
 For you, Xanadu!
 
 The love, the echoes of long ago
 You needed the world to know
 They are in Xanadu
 (With every breath you drift away)
 
 The dream that came through a million years
 That lived on through all the tears
 It came to Xanadu
 (The dream you dream, well it will happen for you)
 
 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 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 video song reviews from users:

Rating 5  Kira Newton-John
The word Xanadu is spoken 21 times in the song "Xanadu". There were 60 Xanadu Dancers, for the Xanadu Roller Disco scene. In the UK, the soundtrack album peaked at number two, whilst the single "Xanadu" peaked at number one for two weeks in July 1980. Olivia Newton-John and Matt Lattanzi met whilst shooting this movie. The two were married in 1984 and had one child, Chloe Lattanzi. They were divorced in 1995.

Rating 5  Danny Kelly
The set of the Xanadu club cost $1,000,000 to build. Further into completion, Joel Silver, Robert Greenwald and Victor J. Kemper started wanting more effects, fancier effects, heavier effects. Then with its Christmas 1980 release moved up by Universal Pictures to summer 1980, this was now unattainable. The last musical that Hollywood hoofer Gene Kelly ever made. Beck was dubbed by Cliff Richard.

Rating 5  Sonny Beck
One aspect of the special effects that proved difficult was the fact that Xanadu is an earthbound fantasy, and many of the elaborate matting effects had to be successfully worked into naturalistic settings.

Rating 5  Lynne Xanadu
I like very much Xanadu video song. Xanadu listed among the Top Ten Best Bad Films ever made in Golden Raspberry Award with Olivia Newton-John as Kira, Gene Kelly as Danny McGuire, Michael Beck as Sonny Malone.
