All Over The World

Album: Xanadu soundtrack (1980)
Charted: 11 13
  • Here's another upbeat Rock song, in which a celebration of the gift of life ("A party all over the world") will take place. Featured in the critical and box office disaster Xanadu, it didn't make much sense in the film, but it was still a huge hit on the charts, peaking at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100. >>
