Black Leather and Pink Satin Jackets

Last week my top news source, Yahoo.com, revealed to me that Top Gun was released 24 years ago.

What you talkin' 'bout, Willis?

HOW is that possible?

My bratty brother-in-law informed me he was 4 at the time.

I hope he can feel the stink-eye I am giving him all the way from H'town to Germany.

Punk.

And just like I can remember where and when I saw Maverick, Goose, Slider and Ice Man play that famous sand volleyball scene, particular music has the same effect.

Music is a great marker for memories of our lives.

I'm going to out myself by saying that sometimes the dial on my radio somehow arrives on Sunny 99.1 and when I hear a Chicago song, it takes me back to slow dancin' in the gym of my Junior High School.

Arms extended, hands on each other's shoulders (we kept it PG back then) and feet moving side to side, side to side.

I'm quite sure I was workin' some amazing hair....big bangs and Sun In, baby!

But just as High School Music captured a generation of kids a few years back, our soundtrack was Grease.

It was the word, after all.

Brace yourself..... there is something coming you are going to just L-O-V-E, LOVE.

Girls, there is going to be a Grease Sing-A-Long.

It's true!

Here's the catch.

One night only....July 25th....and limited release.

But here's the problem. One VERY important city is missing.

H'town.

Dallas got the love. Austin got the love. We need Summer Lovin' too!

Visit Grease Sing-A-Long and there is a special spot that you can click on to add Houston.

I feel a girls' night out comin'!
