It was almost exactly this time of year, late summer, 44 years ago, that Summer Nights was released as a single and then spent seven weeks at No1 in the UK. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John sang us out of the long school summer break and in to sensible September, with a song composed of mismatched versions of their Grease characters’ holiday romance.
