RhoDeo 1606 Goldy Rhox 248

Hello, today the 248th post of GoldyRhox, classic pop rock in the darklight is the original motion picture soundtrack for the 1978 American musical romantic comedy film directed by Randal Kleiser and produced by Paramount Pictures. The film is an adaptation of Warren Casey and Jim Jacobs' 1971 musical of the same name about two lovers in a 1950s high school.

In the summer of 1958, Sandy Olsson meets local boy Danny Zuko at the beach while on vacation and they soon fall in love. As the summer comes to an end, Sandy worries about returning home to Australia and never seeing Danny again, but he assures her that it is only the beginning for them. On the first day of their senior year at Rydell High, Danny, the leader of a greaser gang known as the T-Birds, meets with his fellow T-Birds, Kenickie (2nd-in-command and Danny's best friend), Sonny, Doody, and Putzie, and they all catch up on what they did over the summer. Danny briefly mentions that he met a girl. Sandy, meanwhile, must enroll at Rydell after an apparent change in her parent's plans but is unaware of Danny's presence, as is he of hers. Sandy has made friends with Frenchy, a member of the Pink Ladies, an associated female counterpart to the T-Birds. Frenchy introduces Sandy to fellow Pink Ladies Rizzo, Jan, and Marty. Rizzo, the group's leader, notes she looks "too pure to be Pink".

Most of the albums i 'll post made many millions for the music industry and a lot of what i intend to post still gets repackaged and remastered decades later, squeezing the last drop of profit out of bands that for the most part have ceased to exist long ago, although sometimes they get lured out of the mothballs to do a big bucks gig or tour. Now i'm not as naive to post this kinda music for all to see and have deleted, these will be a black box posts, i'm sorry for those on limited bandwidth but for most of you a gamble will get you a quality rip don't like it, deleting is just 2 clicks...That said i will try to accommodate somewhat and produce some cryptic info on the artist and or album.

Today's mystery album was The soundtrack was released in April 14, 1978, two months ahead of the film's release. The cover gives credit to, and prominently features, the two stars of the film—John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John—although they only appear on seven of the 24 tracks. The remainder of the album is sung by various cast members and Sha Na Na, a group who performed many of the 1950s numbers in the film. The title track was recorded by Frankie Valli, who had no other connection with the film.

The most successful songs from the soundtrack were written specifically for the film. They included the Billboard number-one hits "Grease", "You're the One That I Want" and the number-three, Academy Award-nominated "Hopelessly Devoted to You".[4] In the UK, the album proved even more successful where "You're the One That I Want" and "Summer Nights" reached No.1 for nine and seven weeks respectively, while "Grease", "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and "Sandy" all became top three hits. The soundtrack album hit the top of the charts in the U.S. during the summer of 1978, replacing The Rolling Stones' Some Girls. In the UK, it remained at the top of the charts for 13 consecutive weeks. As of 2011, "You're the One That I Want" and "Summer Nights" are still among the 20 best-selling singles of all time in the UK (at Nos.6 and 19 respectively).

It is the second best-selling album ever released and top-selling soundtrack in history with 44.7 million copies sold worldwide. Here today its 2003 remaster with an instrumental singalong  ...N'Joy
