ELO + Olivia Newton-John + Roller Skates = The Most 70s Thing Ever?

So what exactly were you searching for on youtube when you found this? Dare I ask?

Indeed you dare. I was searching for "The Legend Of Xanadu" by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich. Maybe I should do a "Top Ten Songs Using The Word 'Xanadu' In The Title" list.

I was already familiar with this particular ELO/Olivia Newton-John collaboration, and I had heard that the movie was notoriously tacky (Here's the plot summary from AMG: "the mysterious Kira appears to assist and inspire a young artist, Sonny Malone. When she helps him meet up with the rich Danny McGuire, the two join up together to create an artistic and business success, an unique club called "Xanadu.") But to hear about tackiness is one thing; to see it is another.
