In honor of the life and music of Olivia Newton-John who passed away this past Monday, August 8, 2022, I am playing some of her songs in my classes this week. She was a big influence in the development of my musical tastes as I grew up loving her music as she began as a country artist, then as her introduction as a musical actress in the roles of Sandy in "Grease" and Kira in "Xanadu", and then on to her meteoric rise as a pop icon with the hit, "Physical". I would often play remixes of her songs in class. So, to Olivia Newton-John, thanks for the music!
