How I Xanadu

Here’s me playing the song Xanadu on the piano, and starting with the second verse I start messing with the musical style a bunch.

According to the website for the Broadway musical, Xanadu means “to express oneself through the arts with abandon.” Well, this is how I Xanadu!

In the spirit of expressing oneself, if you like me playing this, you might like an original song I wrote, called Come Out.

For the record, I did this because the Broadway show was having a “Share Your Xanadu Contest,” in which you could win two tickets to the show by submitting a video of yourself “showing how you XANADU.” I don’t just go posting videos of myself doing this sort of thing for fun. But maybe I should!

Update, December 10, 2007 — I was informed today that I won the contest and that everyone involved enjoyed my piano Xanadu a lot. Hazzah!
