LRLS: August 2016 [You’re the one that I want – Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta]

People LOSE IT when they hear the Grease Megamix. I don’t get it – but everyone gets really excited – there’s screaming, a stampede to the d-floor, group singing & general happiness everywhere.

I’ve been to this club that mainly plays 70’s, 80’s and 90’s music to witness this phenomenon myself. It was contagious. I found myself just as excited to be there but kinda happy once the song was over – it’s pretty long & has that infamous “ugh” at the end that I love and hate at the same time.

Anyway, it is a long-long-long song & whilst busting out my Grease-y moves, I had some time to think that I do actually like the music from Grease… So here it is, one of the Grease songs I’ve probably always wanted to try (deep down) but hadn’t until yesterday.
