Olivia Newton- John’s second #1- she would eventually have 5 #1s. A little trivia to tell your friends- her grandfather was Nobel Prize winning physicist Max Born. Her father who was an M15 officer took Nazi Rudolf Hess into custody during World War II.
I still like it a lot…right around when she became a favorite of mine. Surprisingly, ‘Physical’ kind of weaned me off her for some years
I really liked Olivia Newton-John a lot too Dave, especially her songs “Magic” and “I Honestly Love You”. But like you, “Physical” (which was #1 for an unbelievable 11 weeks!) was a turning point for me as well. I thought it was a mediocre song at best.
