Grease is the word

Picture this ~ a movie theater packed with 30-, 40- and even 50-somethings...as the lights go down, the curtain parts to reveal an animated opening title sequence. This "cartoon" gives way to a beach scene then segues to a high school campus at lunchtime. Suddenly, all the men in the theater erupt into "Summer lovin', had me a blast!" While the ladies in the theater sing "Summer lovin', happened so fast!" Imagine this going on for 4 or 5 minutes...and you have the beginning of the Grease Singalong at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood! Dude, you *know* I am so THERE! It's the Rocky Horror Picture Show and the Sound of Music @ the Bowl smooshed together and wrapped in pretty paper and a bow :)

Go greased lightnin you're burnin up the quarter mile (greased lightning go greased lightning)...Hopelessly devoted to youuuuuu...Stranded at the drive-in, branded a fool, what will they say Monday at school?...brusha brusha brusha, get the new Ipana...born to hand jive, baby...Ooh ooh ooh, Honey!

I love LA!
