Lynne wrote & produced all of the Electric Light Orchestra "E.L.O." music, which includes his 5 songs from the film, including the Billboard Top 20 hits: "Xanadu," “Party All Over the World," and "I'm Alive”. Farrar’s hits include most of Olivia Newton-John’s top songs including 5 from the film, most notably “Magic”, which was #1 on Billboard and “Suddenly”, another Top 20 hit.
