Not only was it a great movie, it had an amazing sound track and it took us back to fifties when it was all about diners, greasers, rockabilly, leather jackets, wide skirts and red lips.
When goody-two-shoes Olivia Newton John (Sandy) and greaser, John Travolta (Danny) have a summer romance and find themselves attending the same high school.
All sorts of adventures happen...
My favourite scene is the dancing scene between Danny and Sandy "Born to Hand Jive" It's pretty obvious who is the dancer and who is trying to keep up. It's quite sweet...all those petticoats swishing and cheesy moves. Travolta really shines on the dance floor and the fact that his sexy slicked back, black hair and his chin dimples are on display, will make any lass swoon.
"Tell me About it, Stud!"....Watch this and take a trip back to the fifties.
I adore this rockabilly version of Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love.
This kinda dancing makes me want to get up to boogie woogie and jive.
Couldn't have a post about rockabilly and NOT include the King of Rock 'n Roll - Elvis!!!
