Xanadu is on television tonight. I am surprised to discover that I - age 31 - have never seen this movie. I feel strongly compelled to sing along with Olivia Newton John.
Last weekend, my grandparents gave me a CDR of compiled family reunion photos set to music. "Take Me Home, Country Roads." Grandpa's kin are West Virginian folk. I learned John Denver's version as a child, Toots & the Maytals as a teen. (The song's writers sang back-up on Denver's version, and later formed Starland Vocal Band!)
I didn't immediately recognize the version on grandpa's CDR, so I looked it up on allmusic. Skeeter Davis? Loretta Lynn? Judy Collins?
Nope. Olivia Newton John.
