Editors’ Notes After seguing from country music to mainstream pop, Australia's Olivia Newton-John became one of the most popular singers of the ‘70s and ‘80s. That transition was anticipated by her 1974 GRAMMY®-winning single “I Honestly Love You”, a string-swept ballad that showcased her innocent coo. But her star went supernova after starring in the 1978 film adaptation of '50s-throwback musical Grease and appearing on its mega-selling soundtrack, which yielded the sassy wedding standard “You're the One That I Want.” That newfound swagger would carry over to John's synth-pumped signature, 1981's “Physical”—and even though John has remained an active recording artist ever since, that song's enduring popularity has made it all but impossible to picture her in anything other than a headband and spandex aerobics gear.
