I'm watching Grease with my kids right now. I love this movie. I must have seen it at least 30 times. That's more than Star Wars, which is good or bad, depending on who you are.

A few more sexual innuendos that I remembered, now that I'm watching it with kids. They don't seem to get them, though. That's good. They're too busy laughing at the funny names of the the characters (Doody. hehe.). Whew!

Boy, I used to have such a huge crush on Olivia Newton-John.
Guess mine is not the first heart broken,
my eyes are not the first to cry
I'm not the first to know,

there's just no gettin' over you

Hello, I'm just a fool who's willing
to sit around
and wait for you
But baby can't you see, there's nothin' else for me to do
I'm hopelessly devoted to you
What a fuckin' asshole, that Danny Zucko!
Sandy, can't you see
i'm in misery
We made a start
Now we're apart
There's nothin' left for me
Love has flown
All alone I sit
And wonder whyi-yi-yi
Oh why you left me
Oh Sandy
Yeah, Danny. Big mystery. We all wonder whyi - yi -yi.

I remember seeing this at the old Whitwood Theater. You could pay a buck and stay all day. Just keep watching the two movies that were playing. I think it was Grease and Foul Play, over and over. That's a lot of sodas, I'm telling you. Good thing they had "Beauty School Dropout" right there in the middle; a built in intermission...

Lots of good songs in Grease.
I got chills.
They're multiplyin'.
And I'm losin' control.
'Cause the power
you're suplyin',
it's electrifyin'!
Yeah. I got chills, too. But, I think I preferred her before, rather than her after version. That's just me, though. Still, both were good.

Anyhow, I don't think I'd seen Grease in a few years, so it was sorta nostalgic. My daughter liked all the songs, and she seemed to know some of them (we played the tape a lot when she was a baby). I told Allie that I had the album and she wants me to look for it. That's a problem, since I don't have a turntable anymore. Gotta re buy...

  1. I hear ya on the innuendos. I watched it a few years ago and thought "whoa, when did they add that?" Ah, the innocence of youth!
