That ancient art form whose medium is sound.
Melody, harmony, rhythm and inspiration.

Ok, where? On which list?
I checked Wikipedia and it says...

Sad Eyes" is a song written and recorded by Robert John, and released in 1979.

Released in April 1979, "Sad Eyes" debuted May 19 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song slowly inched its way up the chart throughout the late spring and summer, finally reaching the top of the chart on October 6 — nearly three weeks into the fall.

"Sad Eyes" was one of the few non-disco number-one hits on the Hot 100 during 1979. During the first 10 months of the year, 13 of the year's 16 chart-toppers to the time when "Sad Eyes" reached the top were disco or had strong disco influences.

Which is actually very little information about a song as songs go, especially Classics..
Just saying.. =0/
It can of course still be a classic to you and others, but not to me, obviously... and we are asked here to give our opinions in that regard. So, I gave mine.

Ok... don't ask me how I came to it because I can't remember... some said... "you have to believe me"... and there it was... Once I looked it up I discovered a few more that I just couldn't pick from...

So!! Olivia Newton John's classic hits! Classics? Cheesy? Or Classic Cheese?? (Feel free to break up your opinions and not to judge them as a whole... or judge them as one... whatever works for you!

These are the songs I think of when I think of classic Olivia. I dedicate them to you, Ryan. =0D

Okay, one for Holly. And, no, there's no shame in seeing this movie twice when it first came out, knowing pretty much the entire soundtrack, and even this song, word for word. I was a football playing 15-year-old who appreciated a good musical. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Since the last posting, I've had these songs stuck in my head, so...one of my favorite soundtracks, so why not add more of it. I prefer chocolate milk with my grilled cheese, if no one minds.

Except, there is nothing cheesy about this song... just a classic, 100%.
