Why Are There THREE Gene Kelly's On My Screen?
That is a question that arises every time I watch Xanadu. I'm not sure about you, but I find it positively surreal! Have you watched this movie lately? You absolutely must. It's a riot! It has everything from roller-disco to animated fish, phantom bands to greek muses with Aussie accents and the aforementioned three Gene Kellys!
This strange return to the mystical land of "Xanadu" was beget by hearing Sarah Blasko's cover of the song on her special Cinema Blasko album. It's a wonderful version (and trumps Dannii Minogue's cover from several years back) and is simply gorgeous. As one would naturally expect from Blasko taking her turn at a 1980s post-disco Electric Light Orchestra song! Watch Blasko's take on "Xanadu" as well as the original, below.
