Xanadu (soundtrack) (35th anniversary)
Welcome back to Soundtrack Sunday.
Today marks the thirty-fifth anniversary of the chart debut for the soundtrack from Xanadu, a movie that would then hit theatres a month later on August 8th of 1980. The record reached number 1 in Newton-John's native home of Australia, number 2 in the UK, and number 4 on the US Billboard Album chart (with thirty-six weeks on the charts). It also spawned six top 40 singles.
