Yes I had to fudge a little on this one to fit in everything I wanted to write about on the A to Z Challenge, so I chose You’re the One That I Want and Grease as my Y even though I am just going to write about Grease. It is my all-time favorite movie. It was my favorite movie growing up and still is today. I can recite every line – I’m not exaggerating. I first saw it in the theatre in 1978 when I was 5 – I still have my Grease tee shirt. I watched it when it came on tv, then taped it when Beta came out and watched it over and over. I bought it on vhs and then dvd, but still watch it when it comes on VH-1 classic, even though I own it and can recite it. I saw Grease again in the theatre on its 20th anniversary. I went everyday the first week it was re-released. I’ve also seen the play Grease several times all over, including Baltimore, Memphis and Dublin. Grease was my first album, so along with Happy Days, it was my first music and was a critical part in shaping what kind of music I enjoy. Grease is like home to me, it comforts me.
This blog post is part of my A to Z April Challenge about ‘My Music’ – music I love from A to Z. Thanks for stopping by. I am also blogging the A to Z Challenge on my other blog On the Road with U2 about ‘My U2′ – what I love about U2 from A to Z.
