There are a few things about the play/movie Grease that really bother me.
Stay In Touch! First, let's start with one of the first songs: Summer Nights. In this song Sandy and Danny sing about their summer romance. At one point in the song they talk about how they made a "true love's vow" but then are startled to see each other at the same high school after Sandy moves with her family. Didn't the true love's vow come with phone numbers and addresses? I know that it was before email and facebook, but hey, the phone has been around for quite awhile. Doesn't a true love vow include staying in touch?
Stalker? Isn't Danny a little concerned that Sandy shows up in his high school and his home town? Would it be a stretch to turn this movie into a Lifetime Special on stalking? Maybe have the song "Greased Stalking" be about a get away car that can go so fast Sandy cannot keep up and follow? It's always concerned me that she just shows up. I think it smacks a little of stalking.
Born to Hand Jive: I have nothing funny to say about Born to Hand Jive. It's just a FABULOUS song.
We Go Together: If I ever let my girls watch Grease, I may turn it off right before the end of the year carnival. I do not want my girls to think that they can get a man by putting on a pair of tight leather pants. Though if truth be known, that's how I got Garry. I have the pants in my closet to prove it.
