The Movie, not the stuff you lube your car with or the junk in your deep fryer. John Travolta and Olivia Newton John were the stars along with a great supporting cast. Then came Grease 2, Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield. Fun music, easy dancing and believe it or not, a nostalgic message. Both these movies at first glance seem to be light, fluffy, immature, and frivolous. Yeh, they are, that’s my point. For us baby boomers, they remind us of a time in our lives and history when everything was easier. Or at least it seemed easier. I think twenty or thirty years from now the youth of today will look back at current movies and music and feel the same nostalgia. Nostalgia is not a bad thing. It keeps us connected to our roots, our beginnings, the small stuff which added up over time to make us who we are today. I recommend you all find a movie or some music that pulls at your heart and stirs you to dance in the kitchen or the garage (if you’re a guy) and just let yourself remember all those fun things from your youth.
Here’s my favorite song from the original Grease. Enjoy! Have a great weekend!
