ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK Grease (1998 German pressed 20th Anniversary Edition 24-track CD album featuring the soundtrack to the classic 1978 movie starring Olivia Newton John & John Travolta including Grease Summer Nights Youre The One That I Want Beauty School Drop-out Greased Lightnin Born To Hand Jive Look At Me Im Sandra Dee and more plus a enhanced CD-Rom Section)

The movie is a 1970s take on 1950s musicals, providing all the kitsch anyone could hope for. It's John Travolta as Danny Zuko as Olivia Newton-John's pompadoured main squeeze, and the kids go crazy. Fresh from his astronomical success with Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, Bee Gee Barry Gibb penned the title track (sung by Frankie Valli). Sha Na Na is over-represented, and actress Stockard Channing struts her, um, versatility, singing a couple of tracks. This has become a touchstone in American culture, and so isn't likely to improve its standing in the world's eyes. Maybe the point is that it's supposed to sound amateurish, but it does manage to eke out some fun, most notably on the hit "You're the One That I Want". --Scott Wilson
