Some months ago I wrote about Grease, the movie, its 30th anniversary and my stickers album. It was the official album here in Spain, or so we liked to believe, and in 1979 it cost 20 pesetas -about 0,12€. I never completed it. Here you’ve got some snapshots:
These days we’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of Grease, the musical comedy played in its main characters by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. For those of us in our forties, this movie stays fresh in our memories and time doesn’t seem to have passed by its characters or its plot yet. It was a real hit. But reality is pretty much tougher than memories and some of my student’s parents today weren’t born when the film was released back in 1978.
Personally I was beginning High School then and I remember regarding myself in those days like sort of a Sandy too, for different reasons, although as you might imagine she was far more cuter than I was. I even had a stickers album with scenes of that blessed movie that I still treasure and sometimes share with my nephew. Time flies…
Now moving 30 years forward I’m here squeezing my brains to find something appealing for my students and… yes! Some singing stuff right here for fun! Have a good time!
