Musical Musings A to Z: songs beginning with X

I have a confession to make. One of the reasons I started the musical musings A to Z series for songs (after the previous series on artists from A to Z) was to include one particular song beginning with X.

Can you guess what it is?

It is sung by one of our own. It was included on a soundtrack to a movie. In fact, it shares it’s name with a movie of the same name.

Give up?

I’m, of course, talking about Olivia Newton-John’s Xanadu. The early 80s classic which accompanies a movie that seriously sucked – even with Gene Kelly in the cast too.

I love this song. Yes it’s cheesy and fluffy but it holds great early memories for me, even if I could never rollerskate (as much as I tried way back when!). I’m also a sucker for ELO so their backing on this track also helps make it an all-time favourite for me.

So sit back and enjoy Xanadu. Just the one song this week as I wasn’t about to find another starting with X that I was willing to showcase alongside it.

As I found when I struggled to find an artist starting with X in my original musical musings series (I sorted of cheated by going with eXtreme…) it’s hard going finding many contenders at the pointy end of the alphabet!

Xanadu – Olivia Newton-John

Do have a favourite song beginning with X?
