Grease is a musical we’re all familiar with. And even if you haven’t seen it, you might recognize some of the songs from that iconic hit 70s movie.
When teenage girls across the world laid eyes on a young Danny Zuko in his leather jacket, there were plenty of hearts that fluttered.
It was summer of 1978 when the much-loved movie was released. How could we forget tough Danny falling in love with the very sweet Sandy Olsson from Australia, surrounded by the pink ladies and some serious dance moves.
When the summer was over, Sandy returned to Australia and they didn’t think they would ever meet again…until Sandy showed up at a football game and announced she was a new student at his school!
Like the rogue he was he pretended their summer love hadn’t happened and played it cool but soon he couldn’t resist the stunning Sandy.
It only seems like yesterday that I watched the movie and the songs (and dance moves) are still fresh in my mind. And it appears I’m not the only one.
John Travolta, who played Danny all those years ago, appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” to mark 40 years since the movie Grease was released.
Travolta revealed how one of the dances from the movie Grease came about. “I grew up with all these novelty dances,” he told Fallon. “In Grease they needed a step for ‘You’re the one that I want’ at the end. I said ‘we used to do the four corners why don’t we do that?’ so the choreographer said ‘show it to me.’”
Fallon was intrigued and as the audience cheered with encouragement he asked Travolta if he’d show it to him.
Cue live Grease music and suddenly hearts started to flutter all over again.
It’s time for John Travolta to show everyone that he’s still got it, and he didn’t let his fans down.
