Burning The Ground: DjPaulT's 80's and 90's Remixes

80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Olivia Newton-John – Landslide (US 7″)

Posted by DjPaulT on November 3rd, 2016



Very excited I am going to see Olivia tonight right here in Tulsa, she will be performing at The Joint at the Hard Rock. Olivia is currently promoting her new album “LIV ON” which is available now.

“Landslide” is a song by Australian singer Olivia Newton-John from her twelfth studio album Physical. It was released in several countries as the third and last single from the album in April 1982. In United Kingdom, however, it was released in January 1982 as the second single (“Make a Move on Me” was the third and last single). The single didn’t achieve the success of its predecessors from the album, but peaked at the top 20 on the UK Singles Charts. The song also wasn’t performed during the Physical Tour, but had some performances in television programs during the international promotion.

In the United States “Landslide” peaked at #52 on the Billboard Hot 100debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 on June 12, 1982 peaking at #52.

Of note the 7″ version is slightly different from the 4:23 LP version.

    You have posted some really obscure Olivia treats here. Have fun Paul, that should be a great show. Some of my earliest memories are of her singing in her lullaby like voice.
