Olivia, we remain forever and always hopelessly devoted to you.  

Who hasn’t karaoke’d to a song from the ‘Grease’ movie soundtrack? 
From catchy songs like “Summer Lovin’” to the number one singles “Grease” and “You’re the One that I Want,” to the Oscar-nominated “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” the music from the 1978 hit movie ‘Grease’ resonated with the audience.

In fact, 44 years after its release, the “Grease” movie soundtrack remains one of the top 10 most popular of all time, based on sales data. Meanwhile, the film itself is still one of the top-grossing movie musicals of all time, as well as one of the most well-known. 

Be sure to catch this lively episode in which Candy and Ashley share interesting facts about the making and casting of the star-studded movie ‘Grease,’ starting with its origins as a stage play. The two also share their thoughts about why the film has been so beloved all these years, and weigh in on the controversial ending that has garnered increasing criticism over the passing years. This fun episode is the most… to say the least!
