Music Fix- Olivia Newton John

A great article in the latest issue of Bust magazine reminded me just how awesome Olivia Newton John was when I was a kid. It also reminded me how awesomely over the top Xanadu was! This one is especially for you, Craig! xx

Oh, damn I have to add this one too! It's just so glittery... It's from the Xanadu soundtrack as well (I told you it was good!).
