ELO has a long history of putting hidden messages in many of
their albums. They even released 'Secret Messages' in 1984
that had a goofy messages in every track.
Robert Porter of the Jeff Lynne Song Database had combed
through these titles and has listed many of these "codes" in a
new page of his site called 'Exposing The Secrets'.
....and, yes, Xanadu is caught up in this audio word play. You
can read the evidence HERE!
In the community of Longmont, CO, Gary Beck is making a call
for investment to build a skating rink closely fashioned after the
one in the movie. The estimate is $15 million dollars.
For more details, HERE'S an article from the local newspaper.
Mr. Back has also set up a web for this project and you can find
it HERE! (NOTE: the newspaper article messed up on this link)
Good luck, GARY!!!!!
Have been adding and correcting "stuff" this site this week.
Swing on over to the ODDS & ENDS & OTHERS page and see
'Billboard Reviews' and the additional page added to the SWING
Also, the LINKS page has been updated, with a couple of links
sadly dropped due to inactivity, including the official site for
Xanadu On Broadway. Note: Steve Hoffman's Music Forum's
'Xanadu Soundtrack's thread is so big that they had to split it in
half. Both are linked.
