What has Olivia Newton-John, Creator/GeneKelly, that guy from ''Film/TheWarriors'', roller skates, lots of glowing blue people, quasi-disco music, and a continuous string of {{Big Lipped Alligator Moment}}s?

* SharedUniverse: Implied. Prior to this film, Gene Kelly also played a character named "Danny [=McGuire=]" in the film ''Film/CoverGirl'' (no relation to the cosmetics company). This film is later referenced in ''Down To Earth'' (sequel to Here Comes Mr. Jordan), which features Rita Hayworth (who was also in ''Film/{{CoverGirl}})'' as "Terpsichore", but uses the name "Kitty" in her Earth form. It should be mentioned that all three of the films in question were released by Columbia, while this movie was released by Universal.

* ShoutOut: Gene Kelly's character has the same name and much of the same backstory as the character he played in the 1944 film ''Cover Girl''; Danny's backstory in Xanadu sounds suspiciously like a version of "Cover Girl" without the happy ending.
