Last week, when posting about the lovely duo Angus and Julia Stone, I came across this version of the song, ‘You’re The One That I Want’ by Julia Stone. You will recognise it from the movie, Grease.
Now, if you were a serious fan like I was, you know this song like the back of your hand! Who didn’t want to be Olivia Newton John in that end scene where she makes her appearance wearing all black, looking super sexy and cool, empowered, and then stubs her cigarette out with her heel…I know I certainly did! And then John Travolta, looking at her in absolute shock and awe and being completely taken aback by the transformation of her. It takes me back just thinking about it now…my friends and I used to reenact that scene countless times. I think I knew all the words to that movie and probably still do! I haven’t watched it recently but I’m sure it’s one of those classics that would still be good now.
So, when I found this version of that song, I felt I just had to share it.
I am still unsure about what I think of it as it has a completely different mood to the original, which I can’t get out of my head, but it sure brings back some great memories!
What do you think? yay or nay?
