    Can't think of any male who didn't have a crush on her at one time in their lives. She fought the good fight though.

    Sad. By all accounts, she was one classy lady.
    A beauty both inside and out.
    Rest in Peace.

    I got my 1st stereo for my birthday when I was 13 or 14....Radio 8 Track Tape Player. I don't remember the name of my 1st album, but it was Olivia Newton John!

  • ConnecticoinConnecticoin Posts: 12,418 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I still get crap for buying the Totally Hot album in my teens. Still love the songs from that and the Xanadu album. The movie was terrible but now entertainingly funny - like how did they talk Gene Kelly into roller skating? 😆

    No! Grease was one of my late wife's (in fact today marks 14 months since she died :,( ) favorite movies, especially this part which I thought they were singing "You are the one I want, you are the watermelon, hoo hoo hoo!" :blush:


    She didn't like how this made a mockery of fat people though; still you don't much more 80s than this!
