X is for Xanadu

A favorite of mine that begins with X is Xanadu. Actually Xanadu isn’t one of my favorite movies now, but it was when I was little and it is the only thing I could think of that begins with X. It is one of Olivia Newton-John’s movies, and she is my favorite female performer, so Xanadu counts as my favorite ‘X.’ Plus the definition of Xanadu is an idyllic, beautiful place and that is fantastic. The movie Xanadu was a campy 1980’s romantic musical fantasy, but for me as an 8 year old it was all about roller skating. My best friend Cindy and I spent hours and hours roller skating in her carport while listening to our Xanadu record.

What is a favorite of yours that begins with X?

This blog post is part of my A to Z April Challenge – 26 of my favorites. Thanks for stopping by. I am also blogging the A to Z Challenge on my other blog On the Road with U2.

  1. Awwww. Xanadu. What a great X to blog about. I wish I would’ve thought of that. My X post sucks today. I’m ready for this month to be over!

    Great topic, though. I loved this movie when I was little. When it first came out, my older sister and her friends used to play the record all the time, so those songs were instantly cool in my mind!
