VIDEO: First Look - Travolta, Newton-John's 'I Think You Might Like It' Video
John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have just unveiled the music video for their new single 'I Think You Might Like It'. The song is featured on their new Christmas Album 'This Christmas', which features collaborations with Barbra Streisand, James Taylor and Tony Bennett. Check it out below!
The original song, "I Think You Might Like It," is the sequel to John and Olivia's GREASE smash, "You're the One That I Want," a new tune by that song's writer/producer John Farrar, marking yet another This Christmas-spawned reunion. "John Farrar was just as hard on me now as he was then," laughs Travolta. "We went for perfection on it." "It was really fun to do that," says Olivia. "If it wasn't for that song, we wouldn't be here talking about it 30 years later."
The video for the single features Travolta flying a plane and Newton-John driving a convertible, before they reunite and run into each other's arms. Highlights include the twosome line dancing in a field together. Travolta's wife Kelly Preston, 12-year-old daughter Ella Bleu and 2-year-old son Benjamin also make appearances.
The record is now available and all proceeds will be donated to the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Center.
Almost 35 years after the release of GREASE, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have combined their iconic voices for This Christmas, available now from Universal Music Enterprises. A true labor of love made specifically for "the giving season," Travolta and Newton-John will donate the artist proceeds from the album equally to their respective charities, the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia.
Produced by veteran keyboardist/arranger/orchestrator Randy Waldman, This Christmas is the audio equivalent of those classic network TV specials hosted from the stars' homes, an intimate, warm set of traditional holiday songs from an all-star lineup that includes Barbra Streisand ("I'll Be Home for Christmas"), Tony Bennett and the Count Basie Orchestra ("Winter Wonderland"), James Taylor ("Deck the Halls"), Chick Corea ("This Christmas"), Kenny G ("Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree"), Cliff Richard ("Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas") and the original "I Think You Might Like It" by writer/producer John Farrar.
The idea for the collection came from Travolta after receiving a Christmastime text from his old friend Olivia noting that their 1978 smash, "You're the One That I Want," had just become the best-selling duet in pop music history. "From the moment we decided to do this, magic happened," says Travolta. "Everyone we contacted agreed to do it."
