Wiki

The movie is a 1970s take on 1950s musicals, providing all the kitsch anyone could hope for. It's John Travolta as Danny Zuko as Olivia Newton-John's pompadoured main squeeze, and the kids go crazy. Fresh from his astronomical success with Travolta inSaturday Night Fever, Bee Gee Barry Gibb penned the title track (sung by Frankie Valli). Sha Na Na is over-represented, and actress Stockard Channing struts her, um, versatility, singing a couple of tracks. This has become a touchstone in American culture, and so isn't likely to improve our standing in the world's eyes. Maybe the point is that it's supposed to sound amateurish, but it does manage to eke out some fun, most notably on the hit "You're the One That I Want." --Scott Wilson

I am so thankful I grew up in the era when this movie came out. It was not only a pleasure to watch, but it was fantastic to listen to. John and Olivia are amazing - together - both with their onscreen chemistry and their singing. Every song is a #1 hit and it's definately a soundtrack to add to your collection.

Okay, I admit when I was a teenager I liked the music on this CD and I still do I guess. What's really interesting is that John Travolta and Stockard Channing actually sing their own music on the album. There are some cheesy songs here, but overall it's pretty cool.If you like the movie and the music, this is a good buy.

Boy I tell you that some of those comments by Mr. Maxx are totally Off The Wall. Go to any party where a VARIETY of MUSIC is being played and you are quite likely to hear a song from this soundtrack. I'm not talking about the Noisefests called rap, punk, or heavy metal parties which for the most part barely qualify as music. There is good music from all decades(although the sixties and seventies rule if you must compare!) There are just so many great catchy bouncy songs which many are rooted in …
