Xanadu - Lightspeed Champion

Legbamel Not-Pop

Of all the songs I could have pictured Lightspeed Champion covering, Xanadu wouldn't have made my list. And yet, there he was, recalling the massive cheese-fest of what was one of my favorite movies as a kid.

In case you're unfamiliar with Lightspeed Champion, his real name is Devonté Hynes and he wasn't even alive when Xanadu was in theaters. He also could be called a real Renaissance man, with a book of short stories, a symphony, a nigh-abandoned blog about the 100 worst movies, and a side project as Blood Orange, too. But he covered Xanadu anyway.
