For those without comedic tastes, the so-called experts at Wikipedia have an article about Xanadu.

Xanadu was originally a song by the band Rush, but Kublai Khan liked the song so much he named his summer home in the Hamptons after it. Xanadu was reported to have been much better than the Playboy Mansion because of its 15:1 stripper-to-man ratio. It became well known as a standard for opulent living.

The palace is remembered today due to the poem "Kublai Khan" by Kublai's successor, Dschingis Khan (a noted poet in his later years), which contains the lines:

A place where nobody dared to go
The love that we came to know
They call it Xanadu
And now, open your eyes and see
What we have made is real
We are in Xanadu

The poem is notoriously unfinished because it was interrupted by a man from Prague who wanted to borrow Dschingis's VCR.
