I fully expect judgement for the confession I am about to make so don't hold back, feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and personal feelings as the subject matter is as polarising as subject matters go.
One of my all time favourite movies is da da da dum (drum roll) ... XANADU.
Yep, that did it, I can here the mouse click as you all unsubscribe from following my blog but hey, that's okay, I'm not ashamed.
M, if you are reading this, you don't get to judge so wipe the smirk off your face unless you want me to share how you got the nickname Disney (ps. luv u).
Why the burning desire to share this love? Well, last night I got a text from my dad around 10:21pm...a little scary to be honest as my dad is the guy who goes to bed at 9pm every night no matter how good the show/movie he is watching is plus my mum was away. I myself was in bed and intrigued, opened his message.
'Should have messaged you earlier have been watching Xanadu' was the text I received.
We then shared a series of text about our mutual love for the movie which then had me youtubing my favourite songs/scenes from the movie:
Cliff Richards & Olivia Newton-John - Suddenly - which I can't find a clip for; and
Electric light Orchestra - Don't Walk Away
While I have heard it described as the worst movie of all time (have you seen anything by Paris Hilton I ask?), my siblings and I grew up watching the movie on VCR at every chance and I still love the music and costumes as much now as I did then. ONJ will always hold a very special place for me as Keira.
I am now on the hunt for the actual soundtrack (not the dodgy Broadway soundtrack that is ok but no ONJ and ELO).
