Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta’s duet from “Grease,” “You’re the One That I Want,” remains the best-selling pop duet in history. Take that “Endless Love”! This week, the gay-friendly pair—Livi as a forever friend to the community and Johnny perpetually living behind that uncomfortable closet door—reunited for the release of seasonal album “This Christmas,” which came out Tuesday. It’s going to be fascinating to see next week’s Billboard chart: This has potential to return ONJ to the top 10 for the first time in almost two decades.
Guests on the project include Cliff Richard, Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett and James Taylor. The emphasis single, unfortunately, is an odd country hoedown, “I Think You Might Like It,” which I honestly could have done without. All the same, it comes complete with a music video. Great to see Olivia looking radiant as ever… while John, ever aging out of living a miserable life of lies, seems to have his scalp painted with… uh… hair. See it right here! *
