(In September 2008, Billboard Magazine listed “Physical” at #6 on their Top 100 Songs Of All Time list and in 2010 named it “The Sexiest Song of All Time”.) She has had over 15 top 10 singles (“Hopelessly Devoted to You,” “Magic”) and has sold over 100 million albums. In 1978, co-starring with John Travolta in Grease catapulted Olivia into superstardom. This film's best-selling soundtrack featured duets "You're The One That I Want" and "Summer Nights," with Travolta, as well as her mega-hit, "Hopelessly Devoted To You." To date Grease remains the most successful movie musical in history.
