Just when we thought the highlight of our celebrity holiday playlist was going to be Mariah Carey singing on "Fallon," John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have dropped a new seasonal gem.
The "Grease" duo have released an original single from their holiday album, "This Christmas," called "I Think You Might Like It." It's been described as a sequel track to their 1978 duet, "You're The One That I Want."
Considering that "I Think You Might Like It" is also written by John Farrar, who penned You're The One That I Want," it follows that the music video would lean on "Grease" references.
There's a retro ride and some line-dancing that seems to be inspired by Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsen's sizzling meet-up at the end of the film.
Travolta and Newton-John wanted "This Christmas" to be the "audio equivalent" of a Christmas TV special and also features Barbra Streisand, Kenny G, Cliff Richard and Tony Bennett, among others.
Proceeds from the album, which was released in November, will go towards Travolta and Newton-John's respective charities.
This is a blast from the past, how cool!!! And it's sad that so many people criticize the album. It's done for those who need it and such effort should always be applauded. Moreover, Christmas is approaching and the songs of these great singers can only rekindle the memories most of us have from the days gone by when Grease was so popular. I hope they'll play the songs during this year's Christmas market in Vancouver to remind us of those days.
a hairy fellow
A lot of John Travolta haters out there – so his religious beliefs may be a little weird, the video may be a little cheesy, and I don't even want to speculate on the whole hair issue – but he spends A LOT of his millions to help those in need the community he calls home. He may live in an expensive home, in a private subdivision with it's own airstrip, but he shops at WalMart, eats at Denny's and is as down to earth and as nice a person as any other regular joe.
have you ever been voted for anything?
you like that song don't you...i do too...
Is this the new trololol song?
oh no...the song...its...stuck in my head! SOMEBODY HELP ME!!! PLEASE!!! ARRRRRRRGGHHHH!!! ...gurble gurble gurble....
I love florida...i can let loose when i'm out there..
It looks like the video was shot at his house in Ocala, FL. He lives in a subdivision that has a runway for his and others' aircraft.
I'm old enough to remember when these two were heart throbs. And she is still beautiful and can sing beautifully. He doesn't sing as well anymore. Probably because he had a vocal coach in the past who made his voice passable. I've heard some of these songs and they are awful at best. And man does he look ridiculous on the cover. He never had jet black hair, so why is he trying to pull it off now with that awful hair piece and dyed black eyebrows? The video is a bit odd. Olivia would have been better off releasing this album by herself and let him sing on one or two songs. This may be the ONLY time I've wished auto tune had been used. However, kudos to them both for donating all the money from the album to charity.
if you can see me get up real close to the screen while i put my ass in front of it.
Put that hair piece on a rocket and shoot it into space
everyday....good morning bigjohn
other then their pack who really watches these two...
they are useless.
This is the one of the worst songs I have heard in years. If I were the videographer I would be ashamed of myself because it looks like a 10 year old filmed it (maybe they did). This is utterly useless and uninspiring.
john and olivia doing nothing
Scientologists scare me, it's that insane look they always have on their faces.
I like the video. Nice touch to add the real families !
Is that "Hair In A Can" from Ronco he has on his head ?
Nice Hairpiece Johnny!
LMAO. Let's see here. Overindulgent "has been" star? Check. Cult member who does not believe in CHRISTmas? Check. Stupid song written for star to fit his ego? Check. A couple of minutes of my life that I wish I could get back? Check I recommend that you donate the money that you would have spent directly to a charity
Is he cross-eyed in that photo? or maybe he's making me cross=eyed.
I hope beavis and butthead cover this one
Chimps rip off the face and genitalia of their owners... food for thought! Call me maybe!!
Quite amusing that John, being a member of a Cult, not a Church, is part of a CHRISTMAS CD!
I just threw up in my mouth.. TWICE!!
Wow... Grease, footloose and people with too much money come together in one great xmas video. How grand?
Reading this board makes me think I've entered the twilight zone
I still find her attractive. Have no idea what to think of him.
You're all talking about John, but look at Olivia. Her face and lips are so botoxed out, it really doesn't look like her. Although her voice is still amazing.
Come on folks, they had a good time; it's all for charity.
I thought the same thing....Is that really her ? I still don`t believe it .
He is probably the strangest looking person I have ever seen. Can you be so freaked out about losing your hair, that you would be willing to wear that berber carpet on your head? That is somehow better?
The only good thing about this video is Oliva Newton-John's FAB car.
John Travolta for Ronco GLH9 hair paint
Spishak Scalp Spray
She looks good, he looks scary.
Because nothing spreads holiday cheer in a down economy better than watching a guy in his own private jet land on his own private airfield and deliver gifts in his $100k classic Thunderbird.
Is it just me, or do they look like muppets on that album cover photo?
OMG, John and Olivia Fig Newton, the Mayans were right!!!
No, really guys – you don't have to have actual hot chocolate. We'll photoshop it in later.
I like Travolta's physics-defying hot chocolate.
lindsey lohan crappy at computers. thank god she never went into computers.
john and olivia are made fun of all the time....
This was made fun of on the Onion! http://www.theonion.com/video/john-travolta-olivia-newtonjohn-christmas-album-pl,30370/
i hear he has a huge beek
I wonder, are John Travolta's chills still multiplying and he is about to lose control? At his age it is harder to keep control.
She's still hot and he looks like Mr Potatohead
Is Travolta auditioning for the part of Spock in a Star Trek musical?
john and olivia need the experience at least once in their life....
met a real bull before have they....give them their bottles every 3 hours....all have been warned just in case...bloooo said will help if necessary. now lets go have some fun....
its not my prize..she makes us look like a million bucks, we are the original bulls..not the new bulls...

People are taking this WAY too seriously! They obviously have a great sense of humor and made it a lot of fun, cheese and all! Lighten up, it's all for CHARITY! (And it's a great CD!)
Wow! No wonder the music industry is at an all time low. That song and video is the worst! What's with Travolta's rubber hair? Sorry John the only one you're fooling is yourself. Next ....

Hold on. Wasn't he just trying to convince people he WASN'T gay??
That was frikking AWESOME
Christmas video, flaunting the private jet, the expensive antique car, the multimillion dollar home... just more commercial noise.
Wow, imagine teh money he is spending on plastic surgery to look like THAT. Poor guy.
The cinematography is amazing.
wow. that was awful!!
On what planet is that called hair ?? Be bald already !!
OMG, he is disgusting...I can't even look at him. And this video is beyond cheesy and ridiculous. I love ONJ, but I think she's sunk to an all time low hooking back up with this freak.
He's part of the church of scientology, what's he doing celebrating christmas? :o
My religion killed my child...who I am? Who who who?
You didn't make the connection between "Church" and "Christmas", did you ?
Catori, you're so f*****g stupid.
Were Elton John and Frank Ocean unavailable? At least they are out of the closet.
What does Lindsey Lohan got to do with Travolta and Newton-John...I'll tell 'ya...ABSOLUTLY NOTHING!!! So stick to the topic,be polite about it,or shut the heck up!! After all this is the holiday season we are in,I hope.People are so rude here and negative.I'm sick of it,just sick of it!! Either post something nice here about Olivia and John or shut up!
have a great afternoon.
i keep waiting for the punch line
i love the picture of my JT @ ONJ the cd is cute...i will play it christmas eve and my cousin asked me to bring it christmas day. lol
Two shallow, plastic, phony people, shilling for more of the tone-deaf public's money. I guess they haven't amassed enough during their mostly successful careers and feel the need, once again, to fleece the rubes. And what in hell is with the sprayed on hair?
Anyone who thinks that this tripe is "music" isn't too damn bright, that's for sure.
What are you TALKING ABOUT?!? Her hair doesn't really look sprayed on THAT much...
Oh, you meant HIM? That's supposed to be... hair? I thought that was a cap to keep his skull together after that fruity little club he joined cut off the back of his skull and scooped most of his brains out. Wow. That's supposed to be... hair. Now I think I HAVE seen everything.
So wait, does that mean they DIDN'T scoop out his brains? Then what did they do, suck them out of his ears with a vacuum? Like THAT'S possible, shyuh, right.
What kind of hair dye is John using now? Bless his heart.
if your mouth was closed it would have been open for quite a few years...
People are taking this WAY too seriously! They had one day to shoot a video and obviously have a great sense of humor and made it a lot of fun, cheese and all! Lighten up, it's all for CHARITY! (And it's a great CD!)
and i hear olivia newton-john still gets laid–good girl
I would love to see another movie with the pair in it. Perhaps set at a high-school reunion or something...
would love to see all the "now old" characters in a present day movie.
Please.....after all these years....just get a room !
John, can you quit doing whatever the hell it is your doing to your hair. Jeezus, it looks like a snap on lego set type helmet or something. Your old, show it gracefully. Not by pencil coloring it to a fine line. You look absolutely ridiculous. And yes, I'm soooo sure at your age the color of your hair is black as night, charcoal black... C'mon dude.. Get "a touch of grey" hair color or something. Of course, I'm sure you've got to keep that young appearance up for those massage therapist and waiters that your constantly propositioning.
He was attacked by a Photoshop intern, it's not his fault.
It's a NICE Christmas song and a cute family - remember FAMILY ? video. Just enjoy it or shut up.
It sucks ass.
its all the same stuff....i like talking to people...this is a waste i'm leaving the site soon. we're done with
where are u.
i ordered it for the holidays.
Can anyone say ROBERT PLANT and ALISON KRAUSS?
What a spinoff. Geez.
Thankfully things are starting to look pretty bad for Ms Lindsay Lohan. Hopefully she won't be able to weasel out of her troubles this time.
Good point Ann. thanks
COULD YOU POST RELAVENT VERBAGE REGARDING JOHN AND OLIVIA HERE AND NOT YOUR RANTING ABOUT LOHAN
everyone knows that.
Hopefully that means she'll have to show more skin to make a buck.
