If you're looking to watch Grease online right now, we're not surprised. It was announced Monday that legendary singer and actress Olivia Newton-John had passed away, aged 73. Tributes have been pouring in, including from John Travolta, who starred alongside her in the iconic musical, Grease. In an Instagram post, he said her “impact was incredible” and promised to “see you down the road.” In the film, the pair tell the story of Sandy and Danny, who have a summer fling and unexpectedly find themselves reunited when school resumes. Many fans remain hopelessly devoted to the film and want to catch up on it again. There is no need to try and dust off an old VHS, Grease is available to stream.

Newton-John had a hugely successful career releasing hit songs and starring in the films Xanadu and Two of a Kind. She even represented the UK in the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest! There were also notable guest appearances in Glee and Ru Paul's Drag Race. However, it is her performance in Grease that so many remember her for. 

The 1978 movie is available on different streaming services, depending on where you are watching. In some cases, you will even be able to watch it for free. Tell me more, you say? Here’s how to spend a summer night with Danny and Sandy and sing along to all the classic songs.
