Great Running Songs: "All Over The World"

This is a pretty whack video — it’s actually scenes from Xanadu — but it combines some of my favorite things:

  • Gene Kelly (was anyone lighter on their feet than Mr. G. Kelly?!)
  • roller skating
  • ELO (over-the-top in just the right way)

This song is a lifesaver when my legs start feeling like lead… makes me think of dancing at the foot of the Eiffel Tower or skipping around Trafalgar Square.

    This is one of my all time favorites! I hear ELO and Xanadu for pretty much the same reasons.
