Classic Movie Wednesday: Tunes from “Grease”
John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John at their sexiest in the 1978 musical Grease, a true classic that does indeed stand the test of time.
There are many highlights in the film with two of my faves being the opening Summer Lovers, Stockard Channing’s wickedly funny Look at Me I’m Sandra Dee, and the terrific little number near the end: You’re the One That I Want.
Never get tired of seeing these!
Bonus Video: Here is Olivia Newton John’s big solo number Hopelessly Devoted to You. I’ve been humming this tune ever since last Friday night when I met an old pal, Kathie Bozanich, for drinks at a Mexican cantina in Huntington Beach. We had no idea it was karaoke night so we were in for quite an entertaining evening as we caught up and sipped margaritas. The most memorable performance came from a man who had to be about 80 who took the stage and belted out this very tune. Since I didn’t video it, you’ll have to settle for Olivia’s version. Enjoy!
