Greased Lightning – The Song

Greased Lightning (also known as Greased Lightnin’) is a song from the hit musical Grease. It was also made into a film in which John Travolta sung lead vocals. The song, Grease lighting is sung when Kenickie, a member of the greaser gang at the centre of the musical, has purchased a used car with the savings from his summer job, giving it the nickname Greased Lightning. While the other greasers are skeptical of the car because it is in such poor shape, he is able to win them over with a rousing rock and roll number describing the modifications needed to transform it into a hot rod capable of arousing the ladies.
