917

Ever listen to something from your childhood and wonder about the lyrics?
I grew up with the movies Grease and Grease 2.  The soundtrack for the first movie was always in someone's collection in one form or another.
I was just listening to the song "Greased Lightening"  and was thinking how growing up that scene and that song were just the coolest part of the movie.  
 Now,  I find the lyrics almost embarrassing to sing.   And when I sit down and think about the soundtrack and the movie all these decades later, I understand why so many of the kids I went to school with had copies of it hidden in lockers at school.  Understand why it only came on late night after 9pm on tv -even with a tv edit-  things that sometimes just go over your head when your a kid.
