O is for Olivia Newton-John #AtoZChallenge

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of songs about magic. (Fitting for a fantasy author.)

O is for Olivia Newton-John’s song “Magic.” This song is part of the soundtrack to the 1980’s film Xanadu. The song was written by John Farrar. While the movie was a flop, the soundtrack was a huge success.  The song “Magic” was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks. (It was Olivia Newton-John’s biggest hit until “Physical,” which was released the next year.)
