Olivia Newton-John – my Music A to Z

Grease-grease-the-movie-12743040-324-482

Olivia Newton-John is my favorite. I have loved her since I was five. She was my first obsession, my first scrapbook.  I discovered Olivia when I first saw Grease and soon had all of her albums. Olivia has a memorabilia shelf along side Elvis and U2. My favorite Olivia Newton-John album is Totally Hot, which contains my favorite ONJ song A Little More Love. Unfortunately I have yet to meet Olivia Newton-John, but I was lucky enough to see her in concert twice. The first time was in 2003 in Tunica, Mississippi. I was in the front row and cried during her first five songs. I was just so excited to finally see her live in concert. Besides being a wonderful singer, Olivia is agreat actress (you should also check out Xanadu and Two of a Kind). The second time I saw Olivia Newton-John in concert was at The Strathmore in Rockville, MD on November 16, 2012. It was a seated show and most people in the audience were there because it was part of their subscription to The Strathmore. The only songs they knew the words to were from Grease. Of course I knew every word to every song and was SO excited to hear them! Olivia was very funny and entertaining, and she can still belt it out! The surprise of the night for me was hearing Shaking You, which has always been a favorite of mine, but not very well known. It is a heartbraking song off the Two of a Kind soundtrack. The set list was as follows: Have You Never Been Mellow, A Little More Love, Sam, Xanadu, Magic, Suddenly, If Not For You, Let Be There, Please Mr Please, Take Me Home Country Roads, Jolene, If You Love Me, Physical, Suspended In Time, Shaking You, Never Give Into It, Look at Me I’m Sandra Dee, You’re the One that I Want, Hopelessly Devoted to You, Summer Nights, We Go Together, Grace and Gratitude, I Honestly Love You.

  2. I think Miss Olivia was the dream of so many boys when Grease came out. She was so sweet as Sandy and I am sure that cemented her in a lot of people’s hearts.
