On Tuesday, Piers Morgan used his "Only in America" segment to remix a track more than three decades old.
"Summer lovin ... back from the past," he explained. "He was too cool for school, she was the sweet, innocent new girl, and together John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John made the movie musical "Grease" a stupendous box office blockbuster in 1978."
Now, 34 years since the smash hit, the film's co-stars are joining forces once again, with "This is Christmas," an upcoming seasonal special.
Sharing a peek at the album, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host offers his description:
"The cover showing Travolta, 58, and Newton John, 64 – all smiles, holding matching cups, looking like the cheery co-hosts of a local news morning show."
With a wink and a nod, Morgan notes that the pair "look pretty damn good for their age, which may or may not be down to the gift of nature."
Listing the tracks, Morgan reveals that staples like "Deck the Halls," "White Christmas," and "Silent Night" are all included. But there's also a new take on an old classic:
"The really exciting news is that there will also be a sequel to their smash hit 'You're the one that I want.'"
Written by John Farrar, who created the original title, “I Think You Might Like It” is being billed as a follow-up.
Word on the greasy streets is that Newton-John reached out to Travolta with the idea for the album. Interested immediately, the actor had some ground rules:
"My desire was to make 'This Christmas' an intimate album, not something too ostentatious or showy."
"Perish the thought!" Morgan quipped.
"I'm usually very wary of any sequels to anything. Never go back is my motto – whether it applies to cars, women, holiday romances, music, or movies."
Noting that the album features all five elements, the host explains the two directions this may go:
"A wonderful trip down memory lane for people like me, who had just become a teenager when Grease exploded, so worshiped the very ground Danny Zuko spat on. Or, for the cynics, quite possibly the cheesiest record ever released."
"Only in America," does the host offer his prediction, choosing reality over romanticism:
"The fresh-faced 13 year old boy in me says the former," he admits. "Sadly, the 47-year-old hard-bitten news anchor in me says the latter."
