Performed by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, “You’re the One That I Want” was written by John Farrar for the 1978 film version of the musical, Grease. The single reached number one on the U. S. Billboard Hot 100 in June 1978, and topped the U. K. Singles Chart that same summer for seven weeks, some months before the film had even been released there.
I’ve included a second video of the song made in 2002 at the Grease DVD release party. Twenty-four years between the first and second video, but John and Olivia still had it. And I bet they still do.
