Dance remix of Magic debuted at #5 but let's make it #1
Olivia Newton-John in collaboration with WACCI, has released a remix of Olivia’s 1980 hit song Magic from the soundtrack to the movie Xanadu.
The original song was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts for four weeks in August 1980 and also reached a high of #4 on the Australian charts and #32 in the UK.
Magic is Olivia’s biggest Adult Contemporary hit to date, and her biggest pop hit until Physical ruled the Hot 100 for ten weeks in 1981. Billboard magazine ranked Magic as the third most popular single of 1980, behind Call Me by Blondie and Another Brick in the Wall by Pink Floyd.
Magic has been remixed by two Aussies - DJ Dan Murphy and Producer Steve Peach - to create a brand new dance version of the song with fresh vocals laid down by Olivia on the track for this fundraiser.
Everybody working on this project has volunteered their time and talent, and all proceeds are being donated to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre
Olivia presented the world premiere of the song on Australia's "Dancing with the Stars" on Sunday May 22nd, 2011 and from now on it will only be available in Australia and New Zealand for download exclusively on iTunes
