“You’re the One That I Want” is a song written by John Farrar for the 1978 film version of the musical Grease. It was performed by John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. It is one of the best-selling singles of all time, having sold over 3 million copies among the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany and France alone, with estimates of more than 15 million copies sold overall.[2][3][4][5]

Chart history

Upon its release in conjunction with the film (and its status as a potential blockbuster worldwide), the single became a huge international hit, reaching number 1 in several countries. In the U.S. the single reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for one week in June 1978,[6] and was certified Platinum for shipments exceeding 2 million copies.[7] It also topped the UK Singles Chart for nine weeks in the summer of 1978, some months before the film had even been released in that country.[8]

As of 2013, it is still the fifth best-selling single of all time in the U.K., where it has sold 2 million copies.[9]
