Sehr gut. Stammt vom Xanadu-Soundtrack. UK #20, US #18.
*****
...sehr gut...

Ja eine wundervolle Nummer aus dem besagten Film/Soundtrack. Hat ordentlich Druck und kommt toll rüber. Als Single war es die erste Auskopplung in UK & USA: # 16 und nicht 18, jedenfalls in den offiziellen Billboard-Charts. In England auch nur # 20, da sollte der Titel-Song noch kommen.
**
Gefällt mir echt nicht
******
...alive and kicking ...
****
Etwas dumpfer Beat, da reißt's auch die starke hookline nicht mehr ganz raus. Guter, nicht überragender Titel.
****
Erste Single von "Xanadu"...Gut song, aber nicht das beste.
****
gut
*****
Genialer Sound
****
Jo, den kann man sich öfters mal anhören. Ganz nett.
*****
Wieder so ein Song mit dem Aha-Erlebnis - ach DER Song ist das! Klingt wirklich typisch Jeff Lynne bzw. ELO, was an und für sich schon mal nicht schlecht ist. Nun ja, weil ich den Sound mag eine knappe 5.
*****
schön. sie haben aber klar besseres!
***
Ziemlich schmalzig. Hat zum Teil was von Queen...und von den Beach Boys...Crazy proggy Zeugs...
****
ist schon erträglich
*****
gefällt mir sogar sehr gut!
****
gut
******
Eigentlich ist ja jeder Song vom ultrakitschigen "Xanadu" Soundtrack genial. Aber dieser Hammertrack, ist für mich ein Meilenstein. Die Melodie, der Gesang sind einfach göttlich und wenn man sich dann auch noch den Beginn vom Film vorstellt, kriegt man echt Gänsehaut. 6 Punkte!
*****
5
*****
Ein stampfender Song und zugleich das Highlight auf "Xanadu".
#27 in D
****
4 Sterne glatt. Nicht so gut wie "All Over The World" oder "Xanadu" (von diesem Soundtrack)...
******
Ein weiterer ELO-Favor von mir und neben dem Titelthema das stärkste Stück aus dem Xanadu-Soundtrack. I'm Alive kann man auch unschwer als einen Vorgänger von Twilight betrachten.

Die Ähnlichkeit zu Queensongs besteht wohl auch daher, daß bei beiden Gruppen zu jener Zeit Reinhold Mack am Mischpult saß.

@ rallimain

Das Instrumental Drum Dreams find ich übrigens auch genial. Es ist das Intro zu Xanadu (es wurde so zumindest im Film benutzt).

Wow, ist schon wirklich gut!
******
Ganz tolle Single von E.L.O die nur noch durch die bombastische B-side übertroffen wird...
Beide Seiten haben die volle 6 verdient....
****
4+
******
Toller Opener, geht sofort ins Ohr
*****
Wunderbarer Song, ich mag besonders diesen mehrstimmigen Refrain. Steht meines Erachtens "Xanadu" in nichts nach. Klar 5*.
*****
...ja, das waren noch ELO...
*****
.......aber leider nicht mehr ganz taufrisch, aber immer noch einer der besseren Stücke auf einer insgesamt schwachen LP/CD
*****
Die 28 Jahre hört man dem Stück nicht an, kommt immer noch gut rüber.
***
find ich jetzt nicht so stark
*****
Der Soundtrack von Xanadu fetzt!
****
kleine ELO-Oper

Naja.
****
eine nette und stimmige 'Electro-/Synth-Rocknummer' der Briten - 4+...hiermit 1980 6 Wochen auf #3 in Norwegen...

Auch aus Xanadu, aber nichts Spezielles.
*****
gefällt mir sehr gut
*****
... sehr guter Song ...
**
na ja
*****
die Xanadu-Sachen sind schon gut.
***
Geflopte single van ELO. Gemiddelde ELO plaat, dus 3 sterren.
*****
▒ Zeer plezant !!! Zelfs na 30 jaar een lekkertje van "ELO" !!! Helaas kreeg het plaatje van "Jeff Lynne" veel te weinig waardering !!! Nog net 5 sterren ☺!!!
***
Also mit ganz weitem Abstand zu den besseren Singles aus dem Xanadu-Soundtrack. In den Charts liefs dafür ja ganz gut.
****
mooi nummer
*****
Ist ganz in Ordnung .. darum von mir eine knappe Fünf. 5-
***
good
****
Vlot, opgewekt nummer van Jeff Lynne en zijn Electric Light Orchestra, afkomstig uit de soundtrack van de musical "Xanadu" (1980). Een film met o.a. Olivia Newton-John en Gene Kelly in de hoofdrollen.
****
Guter Titel aus 1980 - klingt ansprechend!
****
Sicher einer der besten Tracks auf dem Soundtrack. Auch heute noch gut hörbar. 4+
**
Gefällt mir nicht
*****
Nach den beiden gewohnheitsbedürftigen Singles begaben sich ELO mit diesem Song wieder in kommerziell verwertbareres Gefielde.
****
Finds gut, aber nicht einer ihrer stärksten Songs, deshalb geht bei mir nicht mehr als ne 4!
