"Grease" is the title song for the musical motion picture Grease, which was based on the stage play of the same name. The song was sung by Frankie Valli and was featured twice on the film's soundtrack; as the first track, and reprised as the final track. It became a number one single in the United States during 1978 and it also became an R&B hit in the same year. The song was written by Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees; that group would later perform the song in concert, as captured on their live offering One Night Only. After "Grease" hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Barry broke the record for "#1 Songs Written in a Calendar Year." He was responsible for writing or co-writing 7 #1 songs in 1978, breaking the 1964 record of 6 set by Lennon/McCartney. The other songs were "If I Can't Have You" (an Yvonne Elliman hit), "Stayin' Alive", "Night Fever", "How Deep is Your Love" (Bee Gees hits), "(Love Is) Thicker Than Water", and "Shadow Dancing" (Andy Gibb hits.)
