John Travolta’s UK chart first two hits were amazing – they both sold over 3.5 million copies! From the soundtrack to the film Grease, You’re The One That I Want was an instant hit in the US and in the UK. It knocked ‘Rivers Of Babylon’ off the top of the charts and stayed there for two months in the summer of 1978! It reached the Top Five in 1990 as part of the Grease Megamix, and again in 1998 it reached Number 4. It remains ever popular at school discos/nightclubs/parties the world over.
