I don't think there is a better musical out there...don't get me wrong, I loved Footloose and The Sound of Music, but Grease is just....better. I don't remember when I first saw Grease but I remember that I have loved it ever since. I always thought that I would make a great Rizzo (I know I could rock that "Pink Ladies" jacket), but who didn't secretly want to be Sandy? Come on...she had the voice, the look, and she gets to make out with Danny (John Travolta...who is much better looking in Grease than about any other movie...must be the "bad boy" thing...and the T-Birds coat). I love the energy (let's face it...The Sound of Music has no real energy) and the 50's feel. I love the cars, the diner, the clothes (I dig poodle skirts), the chessey inuendos and the fact that we can see a little bit of our own "youth" in the movie. Wether you knew a "Danny Zuko" or had friends like "Rizzo" and "Frenchy", you can totally relate to the movie.
So here's a tribute to Grease. Pictures and music....and I found these interviews on YouTube. They are kinda long....but fun to see.
Now I'm totally in the mood to go home and watch it and sing along to every song.Does anyone else love the movie or am I alone in all of this?
(Don't worry...the Grease music will only be on here until my next post....I don't wanna overdo it)
