Xanadu!

Seriously, the movie totally sucked, but I have a difficult time believing that there is a better movie scene than the finale when Olivia Newton-John and her muse sisters take over the skating rink's grand opening and start dancing to all of the different types of music and then they are all standing there and she is suddenly in the original costume with the roller skates and the leg warmers and the flowing skirt and the hair in barrettes with the ribbons... Gosh! I love this movie!!! :)




A place where nobody dared to go, the love that we came to know
They call it Xanadu
And now, open your eyes and see, what we have made is real
We are in Xanadu
A million lights are dancing and there you are, a shooting star
An everlasting world and you're here with me, eternally

Chorus: Xanadu, Xanadu, (now we are here) in Xanadu
Xanadu, Xanadu, (now we are here) in Xanadu
Xanadu, your neon lights will shine for you, Xanadu

The love, the echoes of long ago, you needed the world to know
They are in Xanadu
The dream that came through a million years
That lived on through all the tears, it came to Xanadu
A million lights are dancing and there you are, a shooting star
An everlasting world and you're here with me, eternally

Chorus

Now that I'm here, now that you're near in Xanadu
Now that I'm here, now that you're near in Xanadu, Xanadu

I have to agree with you on that. When you look at the whole movie, it's not the best out there. But, then you catch a song, or a scene that grabs your attention. And, by the end of the movie, you find that you actually enjoyed it.

The scene where he skates into the wall, the one where they are skating to "Magic" and the finale are what make that movie worthwhile. Oh, and the one where "modern" and "old" compete against each other. That was fun. :) Sorry I missed your other trivia contests.

Don't worry about missing them. I'll probably throw a few more on throughout the summer.
Yeah... those scenes are awesome!
(Great Avatar, by the way..)
