THE A TO Z CHALLENGGE 2017: X IS FOR...........

 THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2017:
MY THEME IS YEAR IS RHYTHM AND RHYME:
Which consists of a song and a poem:
Hope you enjoy:
is for XANADU
by
OLIVIA NEWTON JOHN:
As I browsed through You Tube,
Looking for a song beginning with "X".
I was amazed I couldn't find any.
I was flabbergasted I confess.

Here in the UK, there was one
Named "Legend of Xanadu"
But that began with letter "L".
And of course that wouldn't do.

I hope I will be luckier with letter "Y".
Surely there must be quite a few.
That I can entertain and amuse the Challenge,
And of course Blogging Buddies......You.

  1. Hank will always associate Olivia with Grease together with John Travolta. There can never be another one like it!

  8. The poem Xanadu is a favourite of mine and I've used it in my X post too today, Yvonne. This song is so catchy (Jeff Lynne wrote it - ELO) and I think Olivia's voice suits it really well especially those higher notes. A great choice :) Thank you!

  9. Not the best of Hollywood, but Xanadu became a cult classic. A lot of young boys, my son included, we're so in love with Olivia. Thanks Yvonne!
