Just when you thought it was safe to go outside back in 1978- another #1 hit written by Barry Gibb. The title song from the big hit movie of that summer. Gibb was filming the ill fated Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Clubs Band at the time he wrote it- and provides back ground vocals on the song- he enlisted Peter Frampton who was also in the Sgt. Pepper movie- to play guitar on the track. This was the second #1 hit from the Grease Soundtrack- back in June “You’re The One That I Want” by Olivia Neutron Bomb and John Revolting went to the Top of the Pops. Frankie Valli is now 86 can you believe that?
