Friday Morning Videos: "All Over the World"

More from the wonderful year that was 1980. The connection is pretty terrible (give it time to load), as I had to track this down from who-knows-where on the internet, but no tour of upbeat, early 80s pop video craziness could be complete without this masterpiece from Xanadu.

We actually tried to rewatch this film sometime ago; it's almost unbearable. It's 80s punk, it's 70s disco, it's hippy 60s, and it overall doesn't really work at all. But for Gene Kelly and the Electric Light Orchestra, I'll watch anything.

Xanadu was a very meaningful part of my growing up. Due to my pretty serious kid-crush for Olivia Newton John in Xanadu.......I could no longer firmly believe that "All girls had germs!"
