Don’t know why, but that song often reminds me the movie “Grease” with Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. I don’t even think that it was in the movie’s soundtrack. But surely brings back some good old memories.
FWIW, I first discovered this song by watching this commercial:


This commercial is actually very funny. :)

Participating in this thread is making me nostalgic. Is everyone familiar with Dirty Dancing? Imo, that's a great example of a collection of "American cultural music."


As a kid, I never realized Patrick Swayze sung this song. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that he was the actual performer.

The Bee Gees are Australian-British. I think their best songs are "Holiday" and "Odessa, City on the Black Sea", from their pre Disco days.
