I posted a new mix today, if you want to listen, tap the link in my bio and follow to MIXCLOUD.
This mix is my imaginary soundtrack to the non-existent film “Xanadu 2”.
From Wikipedia: "Xanadu is a 1980 American romantic musical fantasy film...A box office flop, Xanadu earned mixed to negative critical reviews...Despite the lacklustre performance of the film, the soundtrack album became a huge commercial success around the world, and was certified double platinum in the United States...Xanadu stars Olivia Newton-John, Gene Kelly and Michael Beck, and features music by Newton-John, Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), Cliff Richard and The Tubes."
While a sequel to this film was "a place where nobody dared to go," this mix wonders what a soundtrack to a sequel might have sounded like if the same artists were involved in its creation. (Including ELO's Jeff Lynne singing lead on a Traveling Willburys' track, and Mint Royale sampling one of Gene Kelly's most famous performances). Track list below:
1) Twist Of Fate - Olivia Newton-John
2) Long Black Road - Electric Light Orchestra
3) Strange Magic - Electric Light Orchestra
4) I Need Love - Olivia Newton-John
5) A Little More Love - Olivia Newton John

8) We Don’t Talk Anymore - Cliff Richard

10) Devil Woman - Cliff Richard
11) Evil Woman - Electric Light Orchestra
12) If Not For You - Olivia Newton John
13) Gimme Some Lovin’ - Olivia Newton John
14) Do Ya - Electric Light Orchestra
15) Calling America - Electric Light Orchestra
16) Singing’ In The Rain - Mint Royale (Feat. Gene Kelly)
17) Runaway - The Traveling Willburys
18) Xanadu (New Version) - Electric Light Orchestra
